Brazil Sea Kayaking Adventure
BRAZIL SEA KAYAKING – THE COSTA VERDE
Discover some of the many wonders of Brazil on one of our newest trips. We’ve paddled all over the world and “perfect” is not a word we use lightly but 150 miles west of Rio de Janeiro on Brazil’s southern coast we’ve found an area that is very nearly perfect for sea kayaking. This is the Costa Verde, a verdant swath of Atlantic rainforest bordered by a warm aquamarine water that is protected from the open Atlantic by Ilha Grande, literally the Big Island. Steeped in history and rich with wildlife this area includes the UNESCO World Heritage site of Paraty and the Ecological Reserves of Juatinga and Cairucu.
“..what a great trip you organized for us, so much more than just kayaking.”
— Nick Thornton, Vancouver BC
Brazil – Sea Kayaking the Costa Verde, May 2012
Our journey starts with an exploration of Rio de Janeiro, one of the world’s great cities that is preparing to host both the World Cup and the Olympics over the next few years ( Rio was the #1 destination on the New York Times’ ” 46 Places to Go in 2013″ . We’ll have a specially curated tour a Rio’s most iconic sights and as well explore some of its hidden treasures of this newly declared World Heritage Site. Next we head to the beautifully restored colonial town of Paraty, once the terminus of the Caminho do Ouro (Gold Road) and our launch point for a paddling trip that takes us to Saco de Mamangua, Brazil’s tropical fjord and along a stretch of tropical coastline dotted with tiny fishing villages and exquisite beaches. With accommodations at comfortable eco-lodges and guesthouses, this boat supported trip blends comfort with a truly authentic sea kayak travel experience. Come with us and experience for yourself this magical corner of Brazil, a place where nature, fun and music are never far apart.
Extra: On this Brazil sea kayaking trip we are also bringing along some stand up paddle boards so if they want to participants can try out the fastest growing water sport in the world in ideal warm water conditions.
