What to expect
  • After pickup at your Natal hotel, meet your local guide and board an air-conditioned coach for the ride to Maracajaú. Bring a swimsuit, sunscreen, and a beach towel for your day of adventure in the sun, sand, and water. Upon arrival at your destination, enjoy the spectacular views of white sand beaches and turquoise ocean that makes locals refer to this area as 'the Brazilian Caribbean.' Go diving in the Parrachos, islands located four miles (7km) offshore. Comprised of 3.5 acres (1.5 square km) of complex reef formations, this area is known for its abundant marine life. If you choose not to dive, the floating platforms allow non-divers a great opportunity to see the tropical fish and live coral as well. Purchase food and drinks from one of the local beachside vendors for lunch. Relax on the sand and enjoy authentic Brazilian food while feeling the sun on your skin and the wind in your hair. Return to Natal for drop-off at your hotel at the end of the day.

Nunca había hecho snorkel. La experiencia fue muy buena, aunque fui en una fecha del mes donde el agua ya estaba un poco alta. Hay que averiguar bien el momento en que el agua está bajita, sino se ven pocos peces.
La caminata por la playa es un espectáculo obligado. Es paradisíaco.
Desde Natal la excursión dura dos hs aprox. Vale la pena hacerla.
Aclaro q la foto subacuática la tomó un fotógrafo q contraté en el barco.

Nos pareció un paseo super disfrutable. El snorkel espectacular. Luego optamos por cuatriciclo que fue espléndido en todo, lo recomendamos ampliamente. Para terminar el parque de aguas, que podría estar mejor pero alcanza para terminar la actividad. Recomendación: si quieren el recuerdo de las fotos que te toman, llevar dinero suficiente.
Adelante, no se van a arrepentir. Buen viaje!

MUITO TRANQUILO, o passeio foi num total de 360,00 reais, 180,00 reais por pessoa, eu e minha esposa, fomos de ônibus confortável(TRANSAZUL) e o motorista e guia super responsável, tranquilo e paciente. Lá almoçamos e fomos para o mergulho, que foi muito bom, agora os preços foram caros, e apareceu um senhor cantando e tentaram me cobrar convert artístico(o que não aceitei pagar). Os famosos 10% sobre tudo que você consome, também foi outro ponto negativo, o passeio foi bom, porém achei muito implorativo as cobranças de todas as formas, até fotos eles cobram para você tirar nos mergulhos.

Lugar de um visual fantástico, sai de lancha por 7km mar adentro até chegar nas plataformas onde ficam os corais. Possibilidade de mergulhar nas piscinas naturais como mergulho livre ou Autônomo (Cilindro). Demos um pouco azar do mar estar meio agitado e a agua estar meio turva mas mesmo assim valeu o passeio.

Prezado fernandomK5864CJ, Obrigado pela sua avaliação! Que bom que você aproveitou o passeio conosco. Infelizmente as condições não ajudaram, mas volte novamente que normalmente o mar parece o mar do caribe. Aguas cristalinas e onde paramos para o passeio não costuma estar agitado. Esperamos vê-lo em outras visitas. Obrigado.
