What you'll do

Are you seeking more than just a boat experience? Looking for that unique feeling of being silently pushed by the wind and gliding over the waters through the magic of sailing? Then, come aboard our 40-foot "Kamehameha" sailboat! We do sail! Come explore our favorite routes under sail and appreciate Rio from a different angle! As a member of the prestigious Rio Yacht Club, we will give you exclusive access inside where we will meet and board. 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 we will teach you some sailing tricks. Or, just sit back, grab a drink and snack 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. Remember that it will depend on sea conditions. Sailing an open ocean is possible only when conditions permit. The safety and comfort of all are our top priorities!

Your hosts

Born and raised in Rio, I grew up splitting my time between my true passions (sailing, the oceans, Rio) ... and corporate jobs! In '08, I ended my career as CEO in banking to become a full-time sailor. As Captain of Kamehameha, a 39.5-foot sailboat, I have sailed thousands of miles along Brazil's coastline. Now I want you to be part of my story! Maybe you'll also fall in love with sailing. But I will be happy if you just lay back, contemplate and smile while we do it! I would like this experience to be life-changing for you too! Daniel Gurjão, is my co-host. Also duly licensed sailor, he has accumulated substantial sailing mileage over the years. In '16 alone, he added 7k miles from his ocean crossings from Rio to St. Maarten, in the Caribbean, and Lisbon. We received Nov4'19 a 2yr CPR & First Aid certificate by the local Red Cross.
