What you'll do

What you'll do: • Learn a new sport (it's easy!) • Visit a different part of Rio de Janeiro • Feel relaxed and peaceful • Learn about the fauna and flora of the mangrove eco-system • Enjoy top quality equipment • Take home lovely memories and photos Once you get to the house where the paddle begins, you will be given safety instructions and a few tips on how to paddle – it is very easy, and most of the people who paddle with us are doing it for the first time.  Paddling is scheduled according to the tide of the date you have chosen, this way our paddle is a very pleasant experience as you drift along through most of the course. During the paddle you will get to see the Marambaia beach first, it is a beautiful stretch of sand enclosing the Sepetiba bay. In this part of the tour it is very common to see big sea turtles. Exploring the many canals of the mangroves takes up the rest of the paddle, here we can observe many different types of birds.  The activity can be tailored to your needs, whether you want to paddle more, enjoy just floating down the canals, try some yoga or focus on taking pics you choose!  Professional photography included!!

Gabriela

My name is Gabriela, I am a girl from Ipanema who combined my love for Rio de Janeiro with my favorite sport and created amazing tours ready to provide once in a lifetime experiences. I lived abroad many years and speak 3 languages fluently. I graduated as a veterinarian and learned how to surf shortly thereafter. Surfing became my life and I decided to pursue my dream of being in the ocean as much as possible. Five years ago I opened a company which offers exclusive Stand Up Paddle tours and Surf lessons. I love showing Rio de Janeiro from my point of view, beautiful, charming and natural.
