The Bay of Sepetiba  is  the part of the bay of Angra dos Reis which is closer to Rio and is reached at  Itacuruçá  -  a  small  fishermen's  village  - after a comfortable ride of approximately 1 ½ hour along the beaches Southwest of Rio. Incredible that this pearl has been preserved so close to a mega pole city as Rio.  There the  day's delight starts by boarding a two-mastered schooner – called "saveiro" -  for  a cruise  through the emerald green waters, rich of untouched tropical islands.  During the boat trip, fresh fruit is served. The boat will stop at a secluded beach for a swim. Lunch is buffet style, at one of the Island of the Bay (beverages not included).  At the Island guests swim or just relax under the sun.
