Brazil Sea Kayaking – The Costa Verde

March - October
10 Days


Perfect Tropical Kayaking

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.

The Green Coast

This is the Costa Verde, a verdant swath of Atlantic rainforest bordered by warm aquamarine water 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 Reserve of Juatinga and Cairucu.

The Greatest Beach City in the World

The journey starts with an exploration of the iconic sites and vibrant culture of  Rio de Janeiro, one of the world’s great cities, and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Rio was the #1 destination on the New York Times’ ”46 Places to go in 2013″. 

Rio like a Local

You’ll have a special city tour that includes Rio’s most iconic sights and some of its hidden treasures. The lively and remarkable cuisine of Brazil is the product of Portuguese Colonial, Indigenous, and African elements influenced by successive waves of immigration, and on this trip, you’ll experience cuisine that will both surprise and delight you.

Kayaking the Costa Verde

Our paddling trip departs from the beautifully restored town of Paraty, which is the site of the world’s most intact set of Portuguese colonial buildings. It is our launch point for a boat supported kayaking journey that takes you to Saco de Mamanguá, Brazil’s tropical fjord, and along a stretch of tropical coastline dotted with tiny fishing villages, exquisite beaches and waterfall swimming holes.

Our Favorite Place

With accommodations at comfortable ecolodges and guesthouses, this boat supported trip blends comfort with a truly authentic sea kayak travel experience. We stay in the tiny fishing village of Pouso da Cajaiba, which Outside Magazine cited as their ”favorite spot” in Brazil in a March 2014 “Destinations” article about the country. Experience for yourself this magical corner of Brazil, a place where nature, fun, and music are never far apart

Try Stand Up Paddle Boarding

On this Brazil sea kayaking trip, we are also bringing along some stand up paddle boards so if participants want to, they can try out the fastest growing water sport in the world in ideal warm water conditions.
