Tropical Island Tour starts (after the
hotel pick-up) by bus, going to the south of Rio de
Janeiro, along the road Rio-Santos to the fishermen
village of Itacuruça. There we will board a
schooner (locally known as "saveiros").
A tray of tropical fruits will be served on board.
A bar is also available on the boat. (Beverages are
not included in tour price). The schooner cruises
on the Sepetiba Bay, an area rich of natural beauties,
where it is common for passengers to spot the dolphins,
giant king-fishers, parrots, turtles and sting-rays.
After stopping for a swim, continue to the island
where a delicious lunch buffet will be served. After
lunch, there will still be time to explore the island
before returning to Itacuruça. The coach returns
via Barra, a charming residential area of Rio, America's
Avenue and its modern shopping centers and buildings,
Ayrton Senna Avenue and Sernambetiba Avenue, where
exciting night life resides.
