What you'll do

Are you seeking more than just an ordinary boat tour experience? Looking for that unique feeling of being silently pushed by the wind and gliding over the waters through the magic of sailing? You are then in the right place!

WE DO SAIL! And we would like to make this experience unforgettable for you.

Come explore our favorite routes under sail and appreciate Rio from a different angle!

We will sail from the foothill of Sugar Loaf to many other destinations. Gaze at Corcovado hill, its statue of Christ The Redeemer, as well as many other landmarks, as we progress.

If you are interested, sit next to the skipper and he will teach you some sailing tricks. Or, just sit back, grab a drink and some snacks while we sail along Botafogo and Flamengo beaches, Santa Teresa, Centro, the fortresses of Santa Cruz, and São João, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and Boa Viagem island, to mention a few.

We may plan a stop for swimming. But remember, it will depend on sea conditions and water quality. Sailing in the open ocean is possible only when conditions permit. The safety and comfort of all are our top priorities!
Other things to note
Bring swimming gear, towel and sunscreen.
Since this experience depends on weather conditions, it could be cancelled at any moment. We will keep you posted!
We leave on time! 10 min maximum tolerance!

Born and raised in Rio, I grew up splitting my time between my true passion for sailing and corporate jobs! In '08, I left banking to become a full-time sailor. As the owner of 39.5-foot Kamehameha, I have sailed thousands of miles along the Brazilian coastline.

SAILING BEFORE THE WIND was the 1st sailing experience approved by AIRBNB upon its arrival in Brazil in '17.

Now, I want you to be part of my story and, who knows, you'll also fall for sailing. But I'll be happy if you just lay back, contemplate and have fun during this unique boat tour!
I want this sailing experience to be life-changing for you! A truly unforgettable sailboat tour!

Daniel, my son, and co-host is a duly licensed sailor and accumulates substantial sailing mileage from his Atlantic crossings to the Caribbean and Europe.

Ótimo experiência. O Rio já é um lugar lindo sendo pedestre, velejando pela baía se torna ainda mais. Fomos muito bem recebidos pelos anfitriões e mesmo com a iminência de uma chuvinha ocorreu tudo certo, sem complicações no mar. Com certeza é um evento que irei recomendar a quem irá à cidade.

Me encantó! Cassio y Daniel son excelentes anfitriones, explicando con veracidas todas las preguntas que les hacía pues me interesaba mucho conocer la base cultural de Río. Ambos tienen vasto conocimiento de los lugares que visitabamos. La vista es maravillosa, y a pesar de que el sol no nos acompañó por mucho tiempo, todo se veía increíble. Repetiría la experiencia 100% 👏

Had an amazing experience, loved all the places we visited and the history that they told us about each location. They were very friendly and accommodating we arrived slightly late and they had departed already. But they returned to grab us from the pick up location. They were also very responsive before and during. Definitely recommend booking with them.

This is probably the first thing I would have my friends and family do once in Rio de Janeiro. The views, the music, the tranquil peace out in the sailboat with Cassio was one of my best experiences ever. I wasn’t expecting such a good time but Cassio with his knowledge and the views of Rio is something not many get to see. There’s not much more to say but thank you to Cassio and the experience. Don’t let the chance pass by, you’ll thank me later.
