Tour by boat on Guanabara Bay

Tour by boat on the Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro. On 1st January, 1502, a Portuguese squad, commanded by Gonçalves, discovered the Guanabara Bay and, judging to be a great river, and as it was in January, he gave the place the name of Rio de Janeiro (The River of January). Guanabara Bay is the largest bay in the world based on volume of water; it has several islands such as the Governor's Island, Fundão and Snakes Island. In the west, you will see Rio de Janeiro, and facing east - the municipal district of Niteroi. The view of the city will be developed by the time you leave the "Marina da Gloria" by schooner (boat), viewing the neighborhoods of Botafogo, Flamengo, Urca, Sugar Loaf, Fort São Joao, Flagstone Island, Santa Cruz Fortress, Rio-Niteroi Bridge and more.
