Our Kayaking Tour in Rio de Janeiro, takes you to different places within the Guanabara bay area, according to wind and sea conditions. We usually pass by the fort São João, Fort Laje, and when conditions are favorable, we can even visit Niterói city, Cotunduba Island , or even Praia Vermelha (Red beach), on the other side of Sugar Loaf mountain. It is quite a unique tour , that gives you a different perspective of our city. We use tandem kayaks in our tours, which means that our customers will always ride in pairs.

I did the Urca Beach Kayak tour. The tour was great, we had an early start 8am. My tour guide, Bernardo, was very knowledgeable and very competent paddler, so I felt safe with him as we paddled out the heads of Guanabara Bay. The sights from the water looking up were great, especially once out of the heads and looking at Sugarloaf, the christ and the army base and old fortifications. We saw numerous turtles, fish jumping about and lots of albatross were flying along the water surface just metres from us, It was a great tour with a great guide, I was very satisfied. Good healthy start to the day,
My wife and I loved this activity - we travelled well over 10km in total, and really enjoyed getting a different view of Rio. We were the only participants in our session, so effectively got a private session, so we dictated the pace and route, which was very useful : ) Our guide was great - knowledgeable and able, whilst willing to not make it all about him, which some guides do sadly. Kayaks with rudders was new to us, and top quality sun cream is an absolute necessity, but we'd recommend this to anyone physically able : )
