Rio de Janeiro: Sunset Sailing Tour

1. Rio de Janeiro: Sunset Sailing Tour

Marvel at the scenery of Rio de Janeiro, the Marvellous City, on a sunset sailing tour in Guanabara Bay. Admire the beautiful sunset, and savor all-inclusive drinks and snacks aboard your boat. Enjoy a small group tour or opt to splash out on a private tour to make your experience extra special. Set sail from Marina da Glória and pass by 3 fortresses — São José, Lage, and Santa Cruz — on your way to Boa Viagem Island in Niterói. Cruise past Oscar Niemeyer's striking Niterói Museum of Contemporary Art and enjoy the views in Guanabara Bay. Then, sit back and appreciate the sunset over the city of Rio de Janeiro. Delight in scenic views of the city's most famous landmarks, such as Sugar Loaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer, as the sun sets on the horizon. Throughout the tour, relax with drinks on board, such as the famous Brazilian cocktail Caipirinha, beer, and sparkling white wine. The tour concludes back at the marina in Glória. Hotel pickup and drop-off options are available.

Rio de Janeiro: 2-Hour Boat Trip with Parasailing

2. Rio de Janeiro: 2-Hour Boat Trip with Parasailing

The operator will first search for the best spot to fly. The most common destinations are the coast of Niteroi and Urca, but depending on the conditions, other routes are also possible.  After getting outfitted with a life vest and harness, you're seated on the flight deck of the boat. Once seated, the first crew mate clips your harness to the parachute. Then up you will ascend really nice and smoothly, just like sitting on a swing set that slowly elevates you for the experience of a lifetime.  The local operator does everything that is possible to ensure your safety. How? Always respecting the limits of nature, providing the best equipment and performing constant security checks. Your safety is top priority!

After pickup, sit back and relax during the 1-hour drive from Rio to Niterói. Take the opportunity to snap some photos as you cross Guanabara Bay. Learn about the old capital of Rio state and how the name comes from the indigenous Tupi language. Make your first stop in downtown Niterói and visit the Niemeyer Way, a series of works by the renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer. Sites such as the Oscar Niemeyer Popular Theatre, Oscar Niemeyer Foundation, and Roberto Silveira Memorial extend for 11km in the coastal neighborhoods of the city. Continue on to Juscelino Kubitschek Square. Head to Niterói Contemporary Art Museum, known locally as ‘the MAC’ and the highlight of this day trip. Revel at the interesting and inventive shape of what is considered one of the greatest works by Niemeyer. See contemporary art inside the museum. Make a quick stop at São Pedro Fish Market to finish off the tour. See where most restaurants buy their fresh fish and seafood. Finally, be dropped off back at your accommodation in Rio.

I honestly think one could just get a cab to Niteroi and back for half the price of the trip. The entrance fee is like 2$ so the fee is outrageous. Loved all the buildings designed by Niemeyer , the museum itself , i mean the artworks on display nothing special. Now , our guide Vanessa ( i know it was spelled differently ) totally saved the trip for us , tailoring it to our interests. She was very knowledgeable and knew a lot o about history. Went out and beyond. Great guide !

Toda a equipa foi super atenciosa com todos os detalhes da viagem, mesmo com risco de um pouco de chuva foram super atenciosos com as nossas dúvidas. O passeio foi lindo, tiveram o cuidado de dar tempo para tirarmos fotos nos locais mais emblemáticos,não tivemos chuva e ainda tivemos sorte com o sol que nos proporcionou fotos maravilhosas e um fabuloso sun set. Recomendo e é uma experiência a repetir numa próxima visita.

I've been visiting Rio de Janeiro for 18 years now, so I've seen and done a lot. But I can say with great pleasure that today's boat tour is one of the best things we did in Rio de Janeiro. Also a big thanks to the people working in this app. I used the app for the first time here in Rio and will be my travel companion in the future.

This tour was amazing! Our first day in rio we loved it! John the guide knew so much about rio and made it so enjoyable and was a great character! We were delighted we came the sunset views were amazing and so were the caiprinihas
