Sailing and Boating
Better than gazing at the Baía da Guanabara is to actually get out upon its blue waters. Saveiro’s Tour (Av. Infante Dom Henrique, Marina da Glória, Glória, tel. 21/2225-6064, www.saveiros.com.br) rents out all types of sea-worthy vessels as well as water-skis. Those interested in a mini cruise can charter a posh yacht that will take you up and down the coast to destinations such as Búzios, Ilha Grande, Angra dos Reis, and Paraty. A two-hour tour around the Baía da Guanabara costs R$30 per person.
