Overview

This short Kayak Tour of the Costa Verde takes you out on the waters of Paraty Bay and into the Saco do Mamangua tropical fjord. As well as exploring the headlands, bays and beaches, you will also take to the hills for stunning views from open peaks. Jungle, waterfalls, mangroves and hopefully some native wildlife should also make this a quick kayak trip to remember.

Itinerary

Day 1 : Along the Costa Verde to Paraty Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo to Paraty On arrival in Rio or Sao Paulo you journey along the Costa Verde, Brazil's Emerald Coast, and possibly its most spectacular coastal route. After leaving the big city behind, the 4 hour drive has jungle-covered mountains towering alongside, and tropical islands dotting the sparkling blue bays. After checking in to your Paraty hotel, you can spend a little time exploring the historic centre of the old port town and you may even have time to take to the waters of the bay by kayak or on a SUP (Stand Up Paddle) board. The shallow waters and offshore islands close to Paraty make it the perfect place for a little warm-up before your Costa Verde Kayak Expedition. Day 2 : Paddling Out from Paraty Paraty to Saco do Mamangua Your Costa Verde Kayak Expedition begins on Jabaquara Beach with some paddling and safety instruction while exploring the coast of the protected bay near town and learning a little of the history of Paraty. Paddling out to various islands in the bay, you may be lucky enough to see the endangered Golden Lion Tamarin monkeys on the private Ilha do Mantimento. Continuing around the headlands of the Laranjeiras Peninsula, you enter the magnificent Saco do Mamangua, which is only accessible by trail or sea. Paddling time for the day is approximately 5 hours, around 22km in distance to the final stop for the night at your accommodation on the water's edge. Day 3 : Peak Views & Mangroves Saco do Mamangua In the morning you can enjoy the views of Sugarloaf Mountain (not the Rio one!) before taking to the trail to conquer the 500m peak. The view across the only tropical fjord in Brazil, and up and down almost the whole Costa Verde is one of the finest in the country. Back down at sea level, the protected waters and mangroves are a natural marine sanctuary for over 100 species of fish. After lunch with a view from the beach, a short paddle along the bay takes you to the mangroves, where three different ecosystems support the wildlife. Total paddling time is approximately 2-3 hours during the day, after perhaps 2 hours of hiking, with accommodation again in Mamangua. Day 4 : Kayaking Back to Paraty Saco do Mamangua to Paraty & Away Your Costa Verde Kayak Adventure ends with a paddle of approximately 4-5 hours to Paraty Mirim, which means Little Paraty in the local Tupi Indigenous language. The tiny village was used to disembark people brought to Brazil from Africa as slaves in the 18th and 19th Centuries. All meals and accommodation are included during your paddle, with ocean-worthy kayaks, and a kayak and safety-qualified English-speaking guide with you at all times. A support boat is also present for every stroke of your paddles. On return to Paraty you can stay another night in town, or we can also include this trip as part of a longer tour, with Rio de Janeiro and Ilha Grande two obvious options.
