What to expect
Paddle the warm, protected waters of the bay of Paraty on this guided kayak tour to tropical islands and deserted sandy beaches. The tour finishes with an unforgettable paddle through the mangrove, which is not accessible by boat. Your experienced English speaking guide will give paddling and safety instruction for double sea kayaks before you set out on the flat waters of the bay. The kayaks are specifically designed to go further with less effort! No previous kayaking experience is necessary for this tour. You will paddle past islands and stop at beaches for swimming, snorkeling, refreshments and relaxation. On the return you paddle through the mangrove full of bright red crabs, providing the tide is high enough. This is an active, fun tour for people who want to explore the bay of Paraty and escape the boat-tripping crowds.

Perfect outdoor experience in the beautiful Paraty.
Mar 2021 • Couples
We had two amazing days with Michael. We did the kayaking on the Friday and hiking on the Saturday. Both were fantastic experiences. Michael was a superb guide and a really nice guy who my partner and I enjoyed spending time with. I would highly recommend. Michael knew a lot about the history of Paraty, the geography and the people. This made our holiday what it was.

Many thanks again for choosing Paraty Explorer for your hiking and kayaking in Paraty. They really were exceptional days, and you chose the perfect combination of sea and forest. Not exactly what Palin did when he was here (coincidenally the Paraty episode was on again in UK while you were here), but then he shouldve followed our advice! hahaha. Looking forward to showing you more of Paraty when you come back!

Gorgeous scenery of Paraty bay
My husband and I have been exploring Paraty for 20+ years and one of the surprising things is that we continue to discovering new places, new tours and having a great time. This kayak tour is a must for the ones who enjoy the sea and a little bit of sports and adventure. Leaving from Jabaquara calm beach, the tour takes you to beautiful islands and a nearby mangrove. The overall scenery is just gorgeous with blues from the open sky and all sorts of greens from the waters and forest, all framed by these endless chain of mountains around. Michael is a terrific and experienced guide, the kayaks are in excellent conditions and we felt safe all the time. We also met nice and interesting people in our group what made the ride very pleasant. Definitely we will go for another tour and bring friends.

Perfect Kayak Tour
Dec 2020
This was an amazing thing to do in Paraty- the tourguide was super knowledgable and friendly- we felt right at home and had an informative, engaging and enjoyable trip. Even though the weather wasn't sunny, the trip was so fantastic we did not even care. From leaving the shore of Paraty to exploring secluded beaches, islands and the journey through the mangroves, I highly recommend!! Even if you have little to no kayaking experience.

Do not miss out on this unique experience
Sep 2020
Paraty is so much more than its tiny historical center, yet few tourists get a chance to explore the town's hidden natural beauties, some of which are only accessible by kayak or canoe. One of them is the mangrove, which is a magical place I would have never even heard of had I not gone on this tour with Paraty Explorer. I'm very happy I did; it was a lovely way to spend a morning/afternoon. We got enough exercise to feel accomplished, but not so much as to become exhausted; we swam in various beautiful beaches; we saw birds and trees and crabs and fishes — all thanks to Michael, who is an amazing and knowledgeable guide. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paraty; it would be a shame for anyone to miss out on this unique experience.

Thank you for the review! We couldnt agree more... the biggest mistake visitors make is to spend only 2 nights in Paraty. You can spend a week here and do something completely different every day! Hope you come back for more!

Lovely tour!
Very nice tour, we headed to a couple of islands and then to a canal with crabs and trees growing directly on the water, before reaching a hidden beach to relax and take some photos. Our guide Michael was very nice and it was interesting chatting with him while kayaking. Recommended!

One of the best experiences in Paraty!!
Mar 2020
We had a great day of paddling in the bay with Michael. We did a 4-5 hour tour and visited some beautiful beaches and islands not too far from the city, and passed through a crab filled mangrove on the way back. The kayaks were top quality, and really glided through the water, much better than the standard models available to rent on the beach. The tour was really professional as well but without feeling like a tour. Michael always asked the group what they wanted to do, and gave us many options so it was was real nice and laid back. He also knows a lot about the local fauna and was able to name all the birds and other creatures we encountered along the way. He also had some great stories about Paraty and the local legends. If you want to discover what Harry Potter and a little secluded beach have in common, then Michael is your guy! Definitely a highlight in Paraty.

Brilliant time exploring the beautiful scenery
My friend and I had the best time doing this kayak tour, all the equipment was provided and we felt very safe at all times. The tour took us along the coast and through the mangroves (amazing!) and then out to visit the islands. We had plenty of time to chill on the beautiful beaches and then headed back to town. The tour guide was super friendly and took lots of great pics of us that he sent through after. Would def recommend! :)

Amazing kayaking experience!
Dec 2019 • Couples
We had a fantastic experience with Michael and his friendly team and could not recommend kayaking with them more. We were taught how to kayak properly, kitted out in safety gear and taken out into the sea. The two beaches in Paraty we stopped at were stunning and we were taken into the mangroves to see crabs. To top it all, we saw a turtle in the sea! It was my favourite thing we did whilst travelling in Brazil! Thank you Michael!

We thoroughly enjoyed our kayak tour and had a fantastic guide. Unlike the island boat tours we actually got to spend time on some beautiful beaches with almost no one else around! We would highly recommend this tour!
