Nautical Chart N° 1621
Navigation Time = 1 hour
Leg Length = 7 miles
Note: time was estimated considering 7 Knots using the engine.
For lunch the best options are the restaurants: Mar e Massa or Coqueiro Verde.
A good way to know part of the Atlantic Forest is tracking. There are many paths around the island. One of them is from Saco do Céu to Cachoeira da Feiticeira, a beautiful 10 meters waterfall inside the Forest . It takes around 1 hour to get there. You can ask the local people for more information.
To spend the night there are two options:
Saco do Céu – a quite place, for who wants a calm place, good shelter.
Vila do Abraão – the most populated village of the island, there you can find some nightlife activities.
Day2 -ParatyDeparture from Saco do Céu or Vila do Abraão to Parati.
Nautical Chart N° 1636
You can choose between two options for a stop, one of the islands: Ilha da GipÃ³ia or Ilha do Breu.
Ilha da Gipóia (Canto das Canoas)
Navigation Time = 2 hours
Leg Length = 13 miles
There is an excellent regional restaurant for lunch time.
From this point to Parati:
Navigation Time = 3Â½ hours
Leg Length = 23 miles
Ilha do Breu
Navigation Time = 4 3½ hours
Leg Length = 30 miles
On this island you will find a very exotic pousada that has a good restaurant and various animal species from Brazil in a kind of open zoo. You can also choose the Tarituba village for having lunch.
From this point to Parati:
Navigation Time = 1 3½ hours
Leg Length = 11 miles
The arrival point at Parati is the Saco do Bom Jardim (Nautical Chart N° 1633). This is the best place for anchoring and to spend the night. We don’t recommend mooring at the pier in front of the city because there is lot of boat traffic.
Parati is one of the oldest cities in Brazil. A great portion of the city has been preserved. There are many artists and artisans’ ateliers. For dinner, you have many options at Parati that offer typical dishes (Ex.Restaurante do Hiltinho or O Refúgio).Day3 -Praia GrandeDeparture from Parati to Praia Grande (a point on the coast).
Navigation Time = 1h 50m
Leg Length = 13 miles
Praia Grande is a beautiful beach and you can go to a waterfall located upstream on the river Itaoca. We don’t recommend this place to spend the night. It’s better to have lunch on the boat and the best place to spend the night is behind the island Ilha da Cotia.
Note: There is the possibility to have lunch or dinner in a small village, named Parati-mirim, at a very rustic restaurant.
Day4 -Ilha GrandeDeparture from Ilha da Cotia to Ilha de Paquetá.
Navigation Time = 3 hours
Leg Length = 22 miles
We recommend having at the Hotel do Frade (just ½ a mile from Paquetá¡) at the restaurant Chez Dominique (the best French food of the region). To spend the night on the boat, the best place to be anchored is on the sheltered side of the island Paquetá.
Day5 -Ilha GrandeDeparture from Ilha de Paquetá¡ to Araçatiba (Ilha Grande). During the day, our suggestion is to make a round trip between the islands of the bay Baía da Ribeira. They are so many that you can choose among them on the chart, but one of the favorites is the Ilha do Arroz, where you can have lunch also. The best option to spend the night is Araçatiba, a fishing village with some restaurants and lodges, and with deep turquoise water.
Day6 -Ilha GrandeDeparture from Araçatiba to Palmas (Ilha Grande).
There are two options to go from the first point to the second, but you must check the sea and wind conditions to choose between them:
Sailing by the external coast of the island.
You can visit two bays that are fantastic, they will take your breath away, named Aventureiro and Parnaioca.
Sailing along the coast of the island.
You must go to a place called Lagoa Azul, this is a popular name because the water is so blue there. It’s located on the west side of the island Ilha dos Macacos.
At night, stay anchored at the bay Palmas, so the next day you can have leisure time there.Day7 -Angra dos ReisDeparture from Palmas to Marina Verolme.
During the morning, we suggest doing some trekking. There is a path where you can reach the beach Lopes Mendes on the other side of the island. It takes only 30 minutes to get there and you have to cross through the Atlantic rainforest. The vegetation changes suddenly when you’re approaching the sand and it seems as though a window is being opened in front of you.
Always bring: Light Clothing, Light Rain Jackets, Sun Block, Sun Glasses, Water, Fruits, and Vegetables.
Never Bring: High or wooden heel shoes, Meals that involve frying, Suitcases with wheels.
The boarding process (briefing of the navigation areas + briefing of the boat equipment) begins at 11:00 am on the morning of the first day of the charter in the Verolme Base, Angra dos Reis.
The boat must always be delivered (check listed) to the base at 9:00 am of the last day of the chartered period. There will be a standard cleaning fee charged when boats are not returned in the same conditions as delivered.
