About Paraty Explorer
Since 2009 Tour Operator Paraty Explorer has been running small group active an adventure tours exploring the Bay and the Forest around Paraty with local guides. Our flagship tour Mangrove, Beaches and Islands by Kayak was recognised as one of the top 1% tours worldwide by TripAdvisor in 2021! In 2019 Paraty was finally awarded UNESCO World Heritage site status for both Biodiversity and Culture. With this in mind we recommend you explore the Bay with its tropical islands, mangrove and beautiful sandy beaches AND the Rainforest covered mountains behind the town. Throw in a walking tour of the historic old town and you begin to feel what makes Paraty special. Exploring the bay by Boat, Sea Kayak (suitable for beginners) or Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) will be a highlight of any trip to Brazil. With so much to see and do make sure you make the most of your time in Paraty with Paraty Explorer!

We‘ve booked the kayaking tour and the „Gold Trail hike“ with Michael and Rodrigo. Both trips were amazing and we enjoyed it a lot. Both guides from Paraty Explorer very pleasant, open-minded and taught us a lot. We would definitely recommend both trips. If you love nature both trips are definitely worth doing. Thank you Michael and Rodrigo for two lovely days in Paraty. Best regards Mario and Alina

Our excursion on the kayaks was amazing, Julio was the perfect guide explaining things as we went along. We also got to kayak through the mangrove which was the most peaceful and serene moment imaginable. I would 100% recommend this tour and your agency.

We did the Kayak tour with Michael and the bird watching tour with Chico. Both guides were very nice and we could book the tours on quite short notice. We had an awesome time with both of them and could explore the area a bit.

We had an awesome tour with Michael. The weather was awesome and we went at the right time to go through the mangroves to see some crabs. He showed us some more secluded beaches where we took a break to swim. Michael knows a lot about the area and we had a good time with him.
