    As seen on : Trip Advisor “Phenomenal!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014 I couldn’t have asked for a more professional, friendly, knowledgable guide and captain. Cassio made us feel welcome and safe aboard his beautiful boat and gave us an afternoon of sailing to remember! A great way to see Rio. Visited June 2014

    As seen on : Trip Advisor “Get away from the crowds” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 We did every tourist activity in Rio, but the one where we could get away from the crowds and relax was the sailboat tour with Cassio. Six of us went on a 4-hour tour leaving from Marina da Gloria. Cassio is a gracious host with interesting stories. His English is perfect and he is very knowledgeable on a variety of topics. He let us steer the boat and help with the sails if we wanted. There was also time to lay out on the deck and enjoy the beautiful weather. Cassio made us refreshing caipirinhas, although he did not have appetizers like his e-mail said. We highly recommend Cassio and encourage you to take a tour with him! Visited June 2014

    As seen on : Trip Advisor “Relaxing day with Cassio” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014 We had a lovely time with Cassio despite it being a slightly cloudy day in Rio. Cassio made us felt welcomed and we had a great time just relaxing and chillin on the boat. It was also interesting to talk to him and learn more about brazil and how brazillians are like today. Thanks to cassio we got to see a lot of the coastline that normal tourist don’t see and 4 hours passed by like a breeze. Highly recommend this tour ! Visited July 2014

    As seen on : Trip Advisor “Sailing the waters of Rio the Janeiro is absolutely brilliant and a must do!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014 When visiting Rio this sailing trip is a must do!! Cassio is a great and friendly skipper who makes you feel at home even before you board the boat. The schedule is flexible. We sailed out of the bay to a beautiful beach and achored there for a while, swiming, and having lunch. Then we lifted the anchor and sailed nicely on the ocean swell before heading back to the Rio harbor club, rounding the sugar loaf with sunset. When requested catering is available and is tasteful and plenty of drinks are provided. Cassio handles the boat perfectly on his own, but if you want, you may participate. Once again, this is a must do, Rio seen from the water is even more beautiful than seeing it from Corcovado. Visited July 2014

    As seen on : Trip Advisor “Cassio is AWESOME” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014 NEW Cassio’s gorgeous boat is just the beginning. He is a charming skipper, a true gentleman, and a scholar! (And his English is perfect.) Our private trip around Botagofo with Cassio was the highlight of the trip. Highly recommended to anyone looking to Sail in Rio!
