    What to Expect
    Enjoy a private tour to the pristine beach area of Arraial do Cabo. Take advantage of the many opportunities (own expense) provided from diving, snorkeling, boating and swimming. Customize your day with the assistance of your private driver/guide. Depart Rio de Janeiro in the early morning.

    Stop at The Prainhas, a beautiful white sand beach, to soak up the sun and fantastic view of Cabo Frio Island. Hike to Praia do Forno and snorkel (own expense) in the crystal clear water of its beaches. Eat lunch (own expense) at one of the local restaurants, known for their savory fried fish, great with a nice cold beer.

    Take a boat ride (own expense) with great views of the Blue Cavern, the new lighthouse, and possible humpback whale sightings. Scuba dive (own expense) at one of Brazil's top diving destinations. See the abundant marine life that calls these pristine bright-green waters home, such as turtles, squids, sea horses and whales.

    Stop a Praia do Farol, one of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil. Spend the day exploring the natural beauty of the area at your own pace.

    Return to your hotel in Rio de Janeiro at the end of the day.
