What is it?

The Sail in Rio team offer private and open group sailing experiences, planned to match the level of seaworthiness of the guests and designed to deliver the great feeling of sailing while showcasing the landmarks of Rio de Janeiro from the water.

About the boat! The sailboat is 39.5 feet long, constructed for ocean crossings, boards up to 10 people and is equipped with 2 cabins, 2 washrooms, full kitchen and all the required safety items [for a good look at it, scroll to the bottom of the page]. The skipper, Cassio, is the owner of the boat and licensed for international waters by the Brazilian Navy.


What is it like?

All trips can be done privately or as part of a larger group. The exact routes will depend on lots of factors such as weather conditions, but typically you’ll head out into Guanabara Bay to enjoy breath-taking views of Rio’s amazing skyline. Included in all programs are bottled mineral water, ice, welcome drinks and appetizers.



Depending on the weather and how much time you have, you may head across the bay towards Niterói and around the bay towards Copacabana and the Cagarras Islands. No sailing experience is necessary, so you can relax and enjoy the experience. Hop overboard for a swim or just soak up the sun and natural beauty of Rio.



The romantic sunset trip, complete with a bottle of bubbly, would a great way to impress a loved one and could be the perfect opportunity to pop the question!
