1. Ilha Grande Island Kayak Tour (Rio de Janeiro – RJ)

Considered one of the main places to go kayaking in Brazil, paddling around the Ilha Grande island is a journey that will take some time to complete, maybe in four or five days more or less. The island is located in Rio de Janeiro and it is one of the most beautiful locations in the country, attracting tourists from all over the world. We have previously talked about Ilha Grande in this post, so make sure to check it out!

The kayak trip is offered by local boating agencies and has its starting point and finish line at Angra dos Reis, a coastal city which we have also previously mentioned in the same post we linked above.

The kayak trip is considered a challenge and it is definitely not a trip for newbies, as the course has almost 75 miles in length and there are bits in which you will be paddling in the open sea as well. So it is recommended for kayakers with some actual experience and good physical shape.

But if you are up to the challenge, you will be able to travel around the island and see beautiful peninsulas and hidden coves, as well as reach isolated beaches – and, of course, camping along the way to recover your energies.

The beaches around the island look like something out of a movie, with white sand and crystal clear waters with shades that vary between sapphire blue and emerald green. During the entire expedition, will also be able to see the rugged relief of the island, covered by Atlantic Forest vegetation.

On top of it all, all your efforts of paddling in the sea will also be rewarded by the constant company of birds, colorful fish, and even curious sea turtles who sometimes peek out the water. On the beaches you will be passing by, don’t forget to take tons of pictures as souvenirs from this magical place.

It is important to note that obviously the kayak expeditions will only depart depending on the weather conditions, so it’s good to be ready for unforeseen events such as postponements and last-minute cancellations.

How To Get To Ilha Grande

The best way to get to Ilha Grande is by landing at Rio de Janeiro’s International Airport (Aeroporto Internacional Tom Jobim – GIG) and then taking a bus to a city called Conceição de Jacareí. Since Ilha Grande is an island, it can only be reached by boat and the nearest and most convenient place to board in on Conceição de Jacareí.

But since the kayak trip departs from Angra dos Reis, the best way to get there is by either taking a bus from Rio de Janeiro’s Novo Rio bus station or rent a car and drive there yourself. The distance from Rio to Angra dos Reis is about 96 miles and you should take a little over a couple of hours to get there.

If you are interested in knowing how to rent a car and all the necessary info in order to drive around in Brazil, take a look at this post we made on the subject as well!

Best Time To Go Kayaking At Ilha Grande

The best time to go to Ilha Grande – and by that I mean the period when there are fewer chances of rain – is from May to August. During this somewhat short period of time (between late autumn and early winter), the overall weather is pretty good, so you will most likely be spending some sunny days in Ilha Grande.

In addition, the months of April, September, October, and November are also historically known for fewer occurrences of rain, which will definitely make the water less agitated and easier to navigate and kayak on.

2. Estreito Dam Waterfalls Kayak Tour (São Paulo – Minas Gerais)

The Estreito Dam is located on the North of the state of São Paulo, housing part of the Rio Grande river (which also boards the state of Minas Gerais). This river also runs through other dams locally known as the Furnas hydroelectric complex, one of the main ones in the country.

The dam made the area kayak friendly, without, however, interrupting the waterfalls that mark the accentuated relief of the region. It is possible to go under some of the falls by paddling, which can be a welcome and pleasant relief from the heat and the typically dry climate that make water sports a total hit at the dam.

The calm water is transparent and, when the sun is high, it becomes crystalline green at certain times of the day. The horizon is a beautiful invitation to take a breath and contemplate the landscape, and the view is one of the main attractions, especially the paradisiac and wild beaches in the middle of the vegetation.

As this kayak tour is not done on ocean waters (and therefore there are no waves or intense current and tide variations), it is suitable even for those who do not have much experience, although it still requires good physical preparation.

Despite being calm and pleasant, the total itinerary will take about four to six hours to complete (depending on your personal paddling pace), as you will have a little over 12 miles to cover. So make sure to whip into shape to complete the whole course and enjoy the ride!

How To Get To the Estreito Dam Falls

The best way to get to the Estreito Dam Falls is by landing at São Paulo’s International Airport (Governador André Franco Montoro Airport – GRU) and then either take a bus or rent a car to drive to Pedregulho, which is where the dam is located.

The total length of the trip is around 280 miles and it should take about 5 hours to get there, so if you are thinking about renting a car, take this information under consideration. If you are joined by friends who are also able to drive, renting a car could be one of the best choices, as you will get to share the expenses and the time behind the wheel.

We made a post on how to evaluate the best choices of traveling inside Brazil (bus, train, subway, etc), so click here if you are interested in getting to know more about how to move around in the country

The Best Time To Go Kayaking At the Estreito Dam Falls

The best time to go kayaking at the Estreito Dam Falls would be during the months of April, May, August, September, October, and November. In April and May, the days are still sunny and beautiful during the Fall. And although Winter ends at the end of September in Brazil, there are high chances of getting good weather even if you go in August, so you just have to pick which is the best time for you.

During these periods, the climate is milder and you will be able to enjoy your kayak tour with the peace of mind that you deserve. Give preference to low season periods, as on the Holiday periods or long recesses, the region usually gets very crowded and the attractions are much busier.

Also, there are those who believe that Summer is the best period to go because of the intense heat, however, this season is quite rainy, and also very busy due to the holidays (Summer in Brazil is from December to February). There are fewer chances of rain during the winter as well, but the cold might take away your courage to swim in the lake and waterfalls.

3. Ilha do Cardoso Kayak Tour (São Paulo)

Departing from the city of Cananéia, located on the south coast of São Paulo, you can paddle your way to one of the Brazilian reservoirs with the biggest amount of Atlantic Forest in the country. The kayak trip starts at Baía do Paranaguá and continues along the beaches of the Ilha do Cardoso State Park.

To keep you company during your journey, count on the presence of many pink dolphins (which we have previously mentioned while discussing the Amazon in this topic) peeking out the water to have fun alongside the boats and flocks of birds of many different colors and sizes flying above your head.

The kayak is considered the ideal way of transportation at the Cardoso Island, as it allows for absolute interaction with nature. Many users on TripAdvisor commend the fact that this kayak tour feels like an outdoor meditation of some sort, as the constant loss of words for the many beautiful landscapes sometimes makes for very silent trips.

The boat agencies at the location usually offer a 2-day kayak trip including accommodations so you can stay overnight. In addition to the view of the Atlantic Forest from the sea, another highlight of the tour is the local mangrove, where you can see lots of crabs and, with luck, even alligator, which are considered an endangered species.

The Best Way To Get To Ilha do Cardoso

The best way to get to Ilha do Cardoso is by landing at São Paulo’s International Airport (Governador André Franco Montoro Airport – GRU) and then either take a bus or rent a car to drive to Cananéia, which is the city from which the kayak expedition departures from.

The total length of the trip is around 180 miles and it should take about 4 hours for you to get there, so if you are thinking about renting a car, take this information under consideration. As we said on the previous topic if you are joined by friends who are also able to drive, renting a car could be one of the best choices, as you will get to share the expenses and the time behind the wheel.

Best Time To Go Kayaking At Ilha do Cardoso

The best time to go to Ilha do Cardoso would be between July and August, as the humidity decreases and the average temperatures are 18°C ​​during the day and 10°C at night. There are fewer chances of rain during this period as well, which should make your paddling a little bit easier due to the waves being more calm and unruffled.

During the summer (between December and February), the rainstorms are quite constant and the average temperature goes above 25°C, which could make your trip much more tiring because of the heat. It is highly advisable to always bring bug repellent and try to avoid going there in November because of the high incidence of horseflies (which have pretty painful bites).

If you plan on visiting the park on foot as well, there is a control on the number of visitors on the island, so during the high season and on most holidays, it is necessary to schedule tours and book accommodation well in advance.

4. Saco do Mamanguá Kayak Tour (Rio de Janeiro)

The jagged coastline filled with lots of islands and bays, makes the coast south of Paraty, in Rio de Janeiro, ideal for kayak trips. It is possible to travel around the region while still avoiding the open sea, which makes the tour more suitable even for those who do not have much experience in ocean kayaking.

In addition to direct contact with preserved nature and the incredibly beautiful water, the itineraries of agencies such as Aroeira Outdoor and Pisa Trekking usually also include visits to fishermen and artisans’ villages, where it is possible for you to learn more about the residents and the impressive local history.

You can make the kayak trip on a weekend, but it is worth investing more time and traveling the coast more slowly, as you will probably want to paddle real slow in order to digest the beautiful landscapes you will be spotting from your kayak.

There are inns in the region for you to recover your energies, but you can also stay at one of the fishermen’s houses, as it is pretty customary for residents to rent a room for tourists and travelers. At the bottom of Saco do Mamanguá (which is how the main bay in the region is referred to), there is a mangrove area with access to a river inside the Atlantic Forest, an area that can only be reached by kayak or canoe.

From there, you can walk to the Rio Grande waterfall, which is most definitely one of the highlights of this adventure. For those who still have energy after paddling for hours, another attraction in the region is the Pico do Pão de Açúcar climb, a light trail of about 1 and a half hours that offers, as a reward for your hard efforts, a beautiful view of the entire bay.

How To Get To Saco do Mamanguá

The best way to get to Saco do Mamanguá is by landing at Rio de Janeiro’s International Airport (Antônio Carlos Jobim Airport – GIG), and from there, you can take a bus or rent a car to Paraty, on a journey that takes approximately 4 hours.

We have detailed the main ways you can get to Paraty in this post, so take a look if you want more information on how the trip should be.

Best Time To Go To Saco do Mamanguá

The best time to go to Saco do Mamanguá is during the dry season, which extends from June to September. During this period, the weather and water conditions are ideal for kayaking and, depending on the temperature, going to the beach.

These months usually offer warm days and pleasant nights, but the passage of cold fronts can cause minimums of 15ºC or less, so if you are thinking about traveling around this time, make sure to be prepared for some occasional cold weather.

5. Costa do Sauípe Resort Kayak Tour (Bahia)

Considered one of the largest beach resorts in Brazil, the hotel complex operates on an all-inclusive basis and is located in the north of Salvador. One of the resorts areas, called Sauípe Náutica, offers some activities which are not included in the accommodation package, such as kayaking, canoeing, zip line, and stand-up paddle.

How To Get To Costa do Sauípe

The best way to get to Costa do Sauípe is by landing at Bahia’s International Airport (Aeroporto Internacional Deputado Luís Eduardo Magalhães) and then completing the rest of the journey by land. Since we are talking about a high-profile resort, naturally there are vans and buses that pick up the guests from the airport, so make sure to check that while you are closing the deal on your staying package.

If there is no transportation included in your package, don’t worry! There are many buses that depart from Salvador to the Costa do Sauípe resort, or you can choose to call in an Uber or rent a car at the airport to drive there yourself. It should take you about an hour to get from the airport to the resort if there isn’t any traffic on the way there.

If you want to know more on what to do in Salvador, check out this video we did over there:

Best Time To Go Kayaking At Costa do Sauípe

The best time to go to Costa do Sauípe is….all year long, actually! In terms of climate, there is no such thing as a bad season in Costa do Sauípe, as the overall temperatures are pleasant most of the year. This means that the average lows never go below 20°C, while the maximums usually pass 30°C in January and February.

Rains are more frequent between April and July, which could not only make your kayaking more tiring but also the beautiful landscape could be spoiled because of the bad weather.

Another thing that could help you define the best time for your trip to Costa do Sauípe is the possibility to see certain marine animals up close. From July to November, humpback whales invade the coast of Bahia to reproduce and can be easily observed from your kayak, while from September to March, you will be able to witness the spawning and birth of sea turtles. Pretty awesome, huh?

6. Rio Paraná Kayak Tour

Over the centuries, indigenous people, Spaniards, Jesuits, pioneers, and migrants of many different nationalities have crossed the waters of the Paraná River to find fertile land on its banks to live, explore and conquer. Just by that, rest assured that this historical kayak tour is of great important cultural richness.

The local government and navigators took on a project to retake this path of the ancients to create what promises to be the largest water trail in the world, named precisely as Rota dos Pioneiros (Pioneer’s Route). If you are up to the challenge, you will be able to travel 186 miles by kayak through the river’s running waters, the part not dammed by the local hydroelectric reservoirs.

The main idea is for tourists to take advantage of what already exists in terms of infrastructure on the banks of the river, such as ports and cities where the travelers can sleep, camp, and eat, in addition to getting to know the local landscape and culture.

The entire route can take several days to be completed and also houses land trails for trekking and cycling, as well as support sites in the floodplain areas and on the islands that make up the Paraná River’s Ilha Grande National Park and the Ilha Grande Environmental Protection Area (APA).

Along the way, navigators will pass by hundreds of islands, beaches with crystal clear water, and a cinematographic landscape that mixes the biodiversity of three of the main Brazilian biomes: the Atlantic Forest, the Pantanal, and the Cerrado.

A Mini Guide for Begginer Kayakers

Without a doubt, kayaking provides anyone with incredible experiences: being able to explore places that cannot be seen or accessed from/by land, going down rapids and waterfalls with rough waters, and making crossings with wonderful landscapes. And regarding the latter, leave it to Brazil to not disappoint at all!

But it is also important to know that for each type of course there is a specific kayak model that best fits the situation. So if you are invested in the idea of having your own kayak to explore nature’s wild, we decided to set up a mini-guide so you won’t get lost while making your own research.

How To Choose The Best Kayak For You

In order to figure out which kayak model will fit you best for you to buy, you must first ask yourself a few questions. Understanding how you are planning on using the kayak makes it a lot easier for you to know the best type of kayak for you.

  • How much are you willing to spend?
    Prices can vary a lot depending on size, material type, kayak model and brand. On our next topic we will explain how to pick the best model for you, so use that information to slim down your search and compare prices mor eficiently.
  • Where will you use the kayak?
    Like, will you be paddling in calm waters like lakes and rivers or are you planning on using it to kayak through rapids and use it in rough seas?
  • How far will you travel?
    Are you planning on going on long crossings, which which you take several days to complete or are you just going to take it for occasional short rides? Depending on how long you will be paddling, there may be a need to store supplies and equipment, which will definitely impact on the type of kayak you will be purchasing.
  • Will you paddle alone, in pairs or in groups?
    There are several types of kayaks that can accommodate more than one person, so before deciding on your purchase, it is good to know if you will be paddling alone or would rather have the company of one or more people.
  • What is your experience with kayaking or how much do you intend to dedicate yourself to the sport?
    With such a large number of shapes and models, if you are already experienced or are interested in taking kayaking more seriously, it might a good idea to spend a little more money on this purchase instead of buying a low-performance kayak that will hinder your evolution in the future. as a practitioner.

    But if it is just for recreation purposes, there’s no need to spend loads of money on a kayak that you won’t know how to extract your full potential in performance.

Once you have answered these questions, it will be much easier to figure out which type of kayak is best indicated for you. Now we will show you all the kayaks styles and models so you can get yours based on what you answered in the last topic.

Kayak Types

There are two main kinds of kayaks:

  • Sit-on-Top
    The Sit-on-Top kayak model is the one in which the person sits on the deck of the kayak instead of partially inserting themselves in the cockpit. They are very common in hot countries, such as Brazil, where it won’t be a problem to get wet while paddling.
    This model also makes it easier when there is the possibility of taking a dip to cool off and then come back up to the kayak (which is not the case with the sit inside model). They are generally wider as well, which gives more stability to the person on top, so they are often used for fishing, recreation and photography purposes.
  • Sit Inside
    This type of kayak has a cockpit, in which the paddler has his legs inserted under the deck, or in other words, inside the structure of the kayak. Many of these kayaks give the possibility to use a kind of fabric that are made to cover the cockpit area, preventing the water from entering.
    This is a big advantage when it comes to paddling in icy water, as you won’t get so wet while paddling. The Sit Inside kayak model generally has the most efficient hull design for gliding through the water, more space to carry gear, and also allows greater use of body movements to control it.
    Experts say that the Sit Inside model characteristics make it the most recommended kayak for those who want to cross and/or go down rapids/waterfalls.

Kayak Models

There are several kayak models available and each one of them is specially designed for a certain situation. To help you figure out which one fits your needs best, we will show you which are the most common:

  • Recreation Kayak:
    This kayak model is recommended for beginners or those who need more stability while paddling. They are usually wider to ensure stability and are also not too big in regards to its lengh, which makes cornering easier but also makes paddling in a straight line more difficult.
    Usually, they also don’t have much space to store equipment, so they are not indicated for crossings that last more than a day. It is a very good option if you are just starting out on kayaking and don’t really want to spend a lot of money.
  • Ocean and Touring Kayak:
    These models are made for longer crossings on the open sea and guarantees more stability in difficult conditions. It can also be used to cross lakes or rivers without rapids. Its hull is shaped to increase lift in waves or rough water.

    The ocean kayak has more space to store equipment/food, which makes it a better choice in more than one-day expeditions. Finally, due to the fact that this kayak model is longer and has fins or rudder, it is considered much easier for you to be able to row in a straight line with speed, even with currents and crosswinds.

    So mainly, the biggest difference between the tourist and ocean kayak is that the latter is considerably bigger, which is another reason that makes it more fit for longer crossings. The touring kayak is smaller, easy to maneuver and is often used for smaller crossings.
  • Whitewater Kayak:
    This kayak model is your best choice if you want to navigate rapids, and although they are very agile (due to their smaller size) and easy to maneuver, they are also less stable and doesn’t feature fins. The cockpit is very tight and is designed to keep you in the kayak even in the harshest conditions. Its hull is made of a material resistant enough to withstand the likely hits you may take on a waterfall descent.

Final Considerations Before Purchasing Your Kayak

Kayak Length

  • Short
    They are easier to make turns, maneuver and are slower. They doesn’t have a lot of storage space, so they are not suitable for crossings.
  • Long
    They are more difficult to make turns and to maneuver, but are considerably faster. These are highly recommended for longer distances, as they have more storage space and makes traveling in a straight line easier.

Kayak Width

  • Wide
    They have greater primary stability, but since they are heavier, they don’t really go as fast as other models.
  • Thin
    They are more unstable, lighter, easy to navigate in a straight line, and are more efficient when paddling.

Kayak Material

The kayak can be made from different materials such as plastic, kevlar, carbon fiber, fiberglass, and even wood. Despite not performing like kayaks made from other materials, plastic kayaks are easier to find and also cheaper.

So, if you are not really sure if you are going to take the sport seriously or have questions about whether you are going to use them in extreme conditions, the plastic kayaks make for a great first purchase.

Kayaks for two or more people

Be very careful if you are considering buying a kayak of this type. In case you really want to forward with the idea, make sure you will for certain have a companion whenever you go kayaking, as it will be almost impossible to navigate with just one person in this model.

Since it is designed to carry two or more or more people, you won’t be really able to use it on your own, so consider if it isn’t best to buy a kayak for one person, and in case you have someone joining you, you can rent an extra kayak.

So, what do you think about the options we have selected for your kayak trips in Brazil? Like we said before, whether you are a serious kayak lover or just looking to have a little bit of fun, kayaking in Brazil is definitely an experience to remember!
