Day 2 – Explore Paraty Bay by boat

Today we’ll arrange a leisurely sailing trip from Paraty aboard a schooner. Relax onboard as you sail past densely forested islands and secluded white, sandy beaches. You’ll stop off at several different locations so that you can explore, laze on the beach or snorkel in the crystal-clear sea. Lunch is not included in the cost, so you may want to take snacks with you, or you can pay for a delicious fish lunch onboard. At around 3pm you will sail back into Paraty harbour.

If you’re looking for a more active experience we can arrange a kayak excursion in the bay or a full day hike along the green coastal strip of Paraty through the forest along several sandy beaches. Speak to your travel specialist for more details.
