Embark on the full-day excursion by traveling from Rio de Janeiro to Conceição de Jacareí, situated in the Costa Verde region. Upon arrival, head to the port to board the schooner bound for Ilha Grande, where you'll be treated to stunning vistas of paradisiacal landscapes.

Your first stop will be at Ilha de Cataguás, where the tranquil blue waters beckon for a refreshing swim. Next, explore Ilha Grande and uncover the beauty of the Lagoa Azul (Blue Lagoon). Discover a diverse array of marine life, including starfish, colorful fish, and corals, in this natural pool ideal for snorkeling. Take a dip and float leisurely with "noodles" in hand. Venture to the Freguesia de Santana, home to a quaint beach housing the first church of Angra dos Reis, erected in 1843.

Continue your exploration with a visit to Praia do Japariz, where you can relish a delectable lunch at a local restaurant and take a refreshing swim in the sea.

Upon disembarking at the pier, return comfortably to Rio de Janeiro.
