ABOUT OUR SAIL BOAT TOUR
Our sailboat tour departs from Marina da Glória, passing through the following points: Flamengo Beach; Urca beach; São João Fort; Lage Fort; Santa Cruz Fort; Vermelha Beach; Leme beach until arriving in Copacabana, where we stop for a refreshing dip.
On the way back, we can see Cotunduba Island. And inside Guanabara Bay, in Niterói city, we see Contemporary Art Museum - MAC, a work of renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer, in the peculiar format of a flying saucer. Then we return to Marina da Glória.
When the sea is big and agitated, the script changes for safety measures. In this case, the sailboat departs from Marina da Glória, following the same route to the fortress, but without leaving Guanabara Bay. So, we take a ride along Niterói coast, passing through Saco de São Francisco; Icaraí; Contemporary Art Museum (MAC) and return to Rio through the City Center until arriving at Marina da Glória.
