Begin your half-day sailing adventure with convenient pickup at your lodgings in Rio. Transfer to the marina, where you will board a schooner and set out on Guanabara Bay.

Relax as the comfortable boat sails away from shore, giving way to epic views of the lush foliage and looming mountains that make Rio such a famously scenic city. Watch the colorful beachfront of Rio, including bustling Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, glide by as you head toward the vibrant neighborhoods of Botafogo, Flamengo and Urca. 

Grab your camera for photo ops of Rio's two most famous mountains, Sugar Loaf Mountain and Corcovado Mountain, topped by the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue. 

Sail past the 16th-century Fortaleza de Santa Cruz de Barra and the Fortaleza de São João da Barra do Rio de Janeiro, perched on a hillside. Pass islands scattered throughout the bay and get views of the longest bridge in the southern hemisphere, the Rio-Niterói bridge. 

Along the journey, learn about the culture, history and traditions of the citizens of Rio from your guide. Bring your swimsuit and towel to take advantage of a local beach stop.

Unfortunately we 3 persons cannot give a positive feedback, because the Rio Carioca Tour Ltda. travel agency did not manage to make this trip happen. First Problem, no pick up at all as promised in the morning at 9:30 of March 18th at a specified place in the Copacabana area. Second Problem, the pick up next morning was punctual and precise as promised, but no ship available in harbor! So at the end the Guanabara Bay Half-Day Cruise did not happen. Only positive: Viator refunded the upfront payed money!
