Anchors Aweigh!

If you want to see the city from a different angle and discover the numerous islands spread across our waters, Veja Rio magazine suggests several interesting boat trips that will take you to beautiful places, such as the Ilhas Cagarras, Paquetá, Fortaleza de Santa Cruz, Ilha Fiscal, and others. See the list below:

1 – Get on board the Velho Marinheiro, leaving from Urca, and pass by sites including the Sugar Loaf, Forte São João, Forte da Laje, Fortaleza de Santa Cruz, Adam and Eve beaches, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MAC) in Niterói, the Marina da Glória, Flamengo Beach, Botafogo Inlet, and then back to Urca. For a dip in the sea, there is one stop at the Ilha de Cotunduba, across from Leme Beach. The boat trip takes a total of four hours. For more information and reservations, call +55(21) 7845-6387 or visit www.velhomarinheiro.com

2 – Also based at the Marina da Glória, Marlim Yacht offers three different itineraries to choose from. The first one takes about two and a half hours and focuses on forts and fortresses, such as São João, Imbuí, Santa Cruz and Laje. The second itinerary is 30 minutes shorter and aims for the sunset. The boat leaves late in the afternoon and offers a drink on the house. The so-called Sunshine tour passes by Flamengo Beach, the Naval Academy, the Igreja da Boa Viagem, Jurujuba inlet, Adam and Eve beaches, Fortaleza de Santa Cruz, Forte São Luis, Forte da Lage, Forte de São João, Urca and Botafogo Inlet, finishing off with beautiful silhouettes that form as the sun sets behind the statue of Christ the Redeemer. Marlim Yacht also offers ocean sailboats for visitors who enjoy sailing as a sport in a three-hour trip. For more information and reservations, call +55(21) 2225-7434 or visit www.marlimyacht.com.br
