This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Cataguas Island, Angra Dos Reis, State of Rio de Janeiro
The Island of Cataguases is certainly the most paradisiacal of the archipelago of Angra dos Reis. With a truly Caribbean aspect, the island, among the rest of the region, is the one that is closer to Angra, that is to the mainland. Sit back and relax in the sand, get a sun bath and dive into the crystal clear waters.
Duration: 50 minutes
Stop At: Lagoa Azul, Ilha Grande, Angra Dos Reis, State of Rio de Janeiro
The Lagoa Azul (Blue Lagoon) is a natural pool with sandy bottom, some rocks and predominantly blue water, located between two islets in the important historical region of Freguesia de Santana. The boats are anchored and visitors can go down to swim, float with "noodles" (foam floats) provided by the crews, snorkel (available for rental) or feed the "sargentinhos" fish (scientific name abdufdef) with bread crumbs, already addicted to being fed by visitors.
Duration: 50 minutes
Stop At: Freguesia da Ribeira Beach, Angra Dos Reis, State of Rio de Janeiro
It is on this beach where the Nossa Senhora da Conceição dos Remédios Church is located. In all the beach is 150 meters long, with white sands, warm and crystalline waters.
Duration: 50 minutes

This day trip was well worth it, and a great experience. Our tour guide was Tania, and she was so friendly, fun and kind. The food was good, the view was amazing out on the water. It was a lot of fun, at the end of the day my friends and I were tired. All the staff on the cruise were friendly also. I would do it again.
The beauty of nature at its best. We also had an excellent tour guide. The boat crew were very helpful and friendly, and of course, the quality of the food exceptional. The only negative side is the 6 hour minibus roundabout trip from Rio, that was pure torture, the traffic is horrendous and the trip itself not comfortable at all. To give you a good idea, we spend more time on the road trip to and from Angra, than on the boat itself.
The tour went well and overall it was fun and a enjoyable! We got to see lovely islands and amazing places. They picked us up early in the morning from the hotel and we only got back around 7pm so it was a completely full day. However, there were too many people and our guide, Rodrigo, was always forgetting about who was on his tour nearly forgot about us a couple of times.. Temperatures were very cold on the bus going and return 2-3 hours so take a warm sweeter! Food and cocktails served on boat were very good, and the entire crew was nice and very fun! The boat seemed like a huge party and we had a band playing typical songs with us! One thing not much appreciated was that we were around 3 or 4 different tours, so we were a lot of people in the same boat and finding a table to eat as not very easy... we did some stops in several islands and was great to have a swim and take great photos! Overall it was a good day!
Our tour guide TT aka Tina Turner was a blast. The bus ride to Angra Dos Reis is about 3 hours and she made the ride fun and entertaining by providing historical information and showing off her singing skills. She speaks good English and was able to communicate the day's activities in three languages so no one was left in the dark Spanish, English, and Portuguese.
This was a good opportunity to get away from the busy Rio Olympics and see the country side. It rained most of the day, but that did not hamper our mood. The water was still very warm and we had three opportunities to swim - the only downside is that we did not get to sail out as far as they normally do because of the weather. The scenery is amazing.
The lunch was fantastic and the Caipirinhas were actually one of the best that we had in Rio. Drinks do not come in the price of your ticket, so keep that in mind. They do take credit cards. We had a small group of about 15 people probably due to the poor weather but it turned out to be the perfect amount of people. Because of the small group, we got to know many people from around the world and had a lot of good conversation. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
Incredible tour guide! She was upbeat and full of energy. Our bus picked us up at our hotel on Copacabana Beach right time. We had to pick up at a few other hotels and were on our way. Took the bus to our boat port and the trip itself was incredible. We ate a delicious seafood meal, swam in the beautiful waters, listened to live music on the boat, and had plenty of space to lay out and relax on the boat and beach. The boat took us to 3 different island spots. 1 was swimming only and 2 were beached areas. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Rio de Janeiro!
Amazing boat ride. Even though the weather looked muggy and the water was cold since it was Winter, it was still fun and beautiful. I recommend bringing a towel, sandals, and a rechargable lifeproof case and additional money for pit stops, appetizers, desert and drinks.
The fried fish meal, Caipirinha, and calamari was amazing. Make sure your phone is charged and able to get in the water because you can take amazing photos!
We stopped in a spot between two islands and got to swim with the fish, then we stopped at an island by getting in the water and walking onto the shore. Lastly we docked at another island. Each stop is about 30 minutes. The ride from Rio to Angra dos Reis is long, so I recommend an additional power source for your camera or phone.
I also took the Rio de Janeiro main landmarks Tour including Christ the Redeemer highly recommend http://www.viator.com/tours/Rio-de-Janeiro/Rio-de-Janeiro-Main-Landmarks-Tour-Including-Christ-the-Redeemer/d712-10351P1
I have photos on Instagram under the hashtag TheNapeCollection
The vivid colors, beautiful blue waters and lucky for us...dolphins, will make you fall in love all over again. Island hopping and Caipirinhas are the only tasks on your to do list on this tour. Book, for the love of beauty, book this tour.
A very enjoyable day out. The opportunity also to see some Brazilian countryside. Courier excellent and scooner excellent. Would recommend this trip to others.
Amazing trip! The traffic is brutal coming and going to Angra from Rio, but worth the wait!
Wonderful experience in angra , the executive bus pick up in hotel lobby , the food and the staff very good .
