What people are saying about Armação dos Búzios

Great time!

We enjoyed our short trip very much. We thought we would see islands but it was only beaches. We also thought we would stop more. But all in all it was excellent and our kids (5 and 3) really enjoyed their experience. I would recommend it. We were super lucky to have an empty boat. Not sure if it would have been as great if the boat had been packed.

The tour was done in a comfortable schooner, with rest areas with pillows very nice and tasty! We passed beautiful beaches with clear waters with areas for diving with equipment available on the schooner. The crew very friendly and attentive. Very worth the ride!

It was great as an english speaking guide accompany us to help translate everything that was happening on the boat. The day wasn't much sunny but still very enjoyable getting in the water.

Perfect trip! There were only four of us and it was incredibly good value for money

Very good! They sell you snorkeling activity and photography apart
