The coach takes the Rio-Santos road to Itacuruça where you board a schooner (locally known as "saveiros"). A tray of tropical fruits greets you once you’re onboard and a cash bar is available. The schooner cruises Sepetiba Bay, an area rich in natural beauty. Keep a lookout for dolphins, giant king-fishers, parrots, turtles, and sting-rays. Stop for a refreshing swim, and then the schooner continues to a local island.

Rejuvenate with a delicious lunch buffet and then take some tine to explore the island before returning to Itacuruça. The coach returns to Rio via Barra, a charming residential area of Rio. Americas Avenue and its modern shopping centers and buildings are sure to temp shoppers!
