What you'll do

Are you seeking more than just an ordinary boat tour experience? Looking for that unique feeling of being silently pushed by the wind and gliding over the waters through the magic of sailing? You are then in the right place!

WE DO SAIL! And we would like to make this experience unforgettable for you.

Come explore our favorite routes under sail and appreciate Rio from a different angle!

We will sail from the foothill of Sugar Loaf to many other destinations. Gaze at Corcovado hill, its statue of Christ The Redeemer, as well as many other landmarks, as we progress.

If you are interested, sit next to the skipper and he will teach you some sailing tricks. Or, just sit back, grab a drink and some snacks while we sail along Botafogo and Flamengo beaches, Santa Teresa, Centro, the fortresses of Santa Cruz, and São João, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and Boa Viagem island, to mention a few.

We may plan a stop for swimming. But remember, it will depend on sea conditions and water quality. Sailing in the open ocean is possible only when conditions permit. The safety and comfort of all are our top priorities!
Other things to note:
Bring swimming gear, a towel, and sunscreen.
Since this experience depends on weather conditions, it could be canceled at any moment. We will keep you posted!
We leave on time! 10 min maximum tolerance!

Born and raised in Rio, I grew up splitting my time between my true passion for sailing and corporate jobs! In '08, I left banking to become a full-time sailor. As the owner of 39.5-foot Kamehameha, I have sailed thousands of miles along the Brazilian coastline.

SAILING BEFORE THE WIND was the 1st sailing experience approved by AIRBNB upon its arrival in Brazil in '17.

Now, I want you to be part of my story and, who knows, you'll also fall for sailing. But I'll be happy if you just lay back, contemplate and have fun during this unique boat tour!
I want this sailing experience to be life-changing for you! A truly unforgettable sailboat tour!

Daniel, my son, and co-host is a duly licensed sailor and accumulates substantial sailing mileage from his Atlantic crossings to the Caribbean and Europe.

This was one of the highlights of my time in Rio! The boat tour exceeded my expectations. The captain and the crew were beyond accommodating, very knowledgeable, and the boat tour was most memorable. Thank you all so much for a great time.

Um passeio muito bacana! Vale para turistas e cariocas. Visual lindo, soundtrack perfeito com o melhor do mpb, bossa-nova e afins. E o visual do Rio de Janeiro com toques de história muito bem contadas. Adoramos!

This was a perfect way to start our vacation in Rio. They were very knowledgeable about the history of the country and the current struggles people face in the country. We had a lovely time. We enjoyed our caipirinhas (delicious) and snacked while watching the sunset. They were also able to give us blankets since it became a little chilly towards the end of the night. Book this experience you will not regret it.

Ótimo passeio! Cassio e seu filho são bem receptivos e atenciosos. O passeio nos mostra um outro lado do Rio, e permite um contato maravilhoso com a natureza. E as caipirinhas estavam ótimas. Recomendo

Best experience in Rio! Cassio is very considerate and they let us reschedule our trip when we couldn’t able to make it. Highly recommended this tour with them. They got good drinks and good music while sailing.
