If you are looking for what to do in Rio de Janeiro and only have 1 day to get to know Ilha Grande let us show you the most beautiful, the sea floor and a vast marine life, many fish, colorful corals, sea turtles and with a little bit of luck even dolphins, wearing only a mask with snorkel and flippers. Ideal even for those who can not swim! An incredible adventure that will allow you to see by snorkel a wealth of marine life normally accessible only to scuba divers. All this on a 1 day tour in Ilha Grande!

This is a speedboat tour for a maximum of 6 people with our best local bilingual free dive guide (Mateus) who has been practicing this modality since 2010 when he moved from São Paulo to Ilha Grande in search of new experiences.

Delighted with everything he saw and lived in these 8 years decided to join us in this project and show the world not only the seabed but also the new lifestyle that discovered here, the style "Caiçara."



Imagine a trip to exceed expectations, something super exclusive (maximum of 6 people and a minimum of 2), that bring you new sensations, open your mind, a great underwater adventure in an island paradise and full of stories of shipwrecks, pirates and everything else. In this scenario and accompanied by duly qualified professionals who love what they do, we want to show the wonders of Ilha Grande in the eyes of those who live here. Prioritizing always the good service, the honesty and the immense respect to the nature we take you for an unforgettable tour. After all, special people deserve special moments! We will observe marine life in the wild environment and accompanied by a local bilingual dive instructor, relax on some of Ilha Grande's more than 100 beaches with white sand and crystal clear waters, and enjoy the famous caiçara cuisine in a restaurant with the feet in the sand.

HOW does the 1 day ilha grande tour work?

Our ground transportation service that operates daily in the south and center of Rio de Janeiro will pick you up at your hotel at 7:00 a.m. The trip to Conceição de Jacareí lasts approximately 2:00 and there our team will be waiting to go straight to the tour in Ilha Grande. The speedboat tour on Ilha Grande makes 5 stops, approximately 50 minutes each. We start by the blue lagoon where we make 2 stops at 2 different points then we go to the Grumixama beach where you can simply relax or continue with the snorkeling. Then we continue to the lunch stop in Japariz (included in the package), after lunch we take a panoramic view of Saco do Céu and stop at the legendary beach of love. The end of the speedboat trip is between 16:00h and 17:00h at the same place of embarkation where our ground transportation team waits to return to your hotel in Rio de Janeiro where you will be back at 9:00 pm.
