What You Can Expect
Following pickup at your Salvador hotel, transfer to a schooner and set off into the Baía de Todos os Santos, or All Saints Bay.
Find a spot on the deck of the boat to relax and listen to music, or sidle up to the bar for a drink. During the scenic ride to your first stop, get to know your knowledgable guide and ask any questions you may have about Salvador.
Stop at Ilha dos Frades, a small uninhabited island populated by lush vegetation and pristine beaches. Dive off the boat or wade in from the shore to enjoy the crystal-clear clear water and the island sunshine.
Climb back aboard the boat and head to Itaparica, Baía de Todos os Santos' most well-known island. Go snorkeling or diving right off the beaches or explore the shallow tide pools that are home to a rich variety of marine life. Hike the island's nature trails or opt for a horseback riding adventure or any of the other leisure activities on offer.
On the way back to Salvador, enjoy views of both the Upper and Lower Cities as the schooner approaches. When you return to dry land, enjoy drop-off back at your hotel.
if it is sunny day then it is just perfect
Amazing trip. Worth every penny spent. At frames had the fresh prawns cooked as you swim on the beach.The buffet at Itaparika island was tasty then did a quick tour of the Island for 15 Rias each with the local tour van that takes about an hour. The scenery is out of this world.

A fun day from Salvador. The drinks and snacks on board are pricey. Great live band to entertain us. First beach was a nice swimming beach, tour operator reserved chairs and tables for the group include in price of cruise. Second stop was Itaparica island. Buffet lunch at a hotel was very good. A group of locals came and did a Capoeira performance for tips. They were very good. We were offered a very quick tour of the island for $15, not included in the price of the cruise. Very interesting and worth the small investment.
I had a great day on this tour. It was a beautiful day.
Nice boat, nice people, nice beach and very exotic lunch place. Hotel pick-up also worked also fine although prior information could have been better.
goo dtrip. lively and friendly atmosphere. unfortunately the boat broke up afper 45 minutes but they maneged to get us around anyway. it is a relaxed day. you are on the water and on some beaches. good weather, nice views.
Staff were friendly and english speaking. Be careful with the drinks on the boat ride because they are not free and you could end up with a big bill at the end of the tour. Otherwise great trip.
The trip was ok. Too much time on the boat and not enough on the beaches.
I'd advise against buying this tour. This turned out to be nothing more than an expensive boat ticket. Arrived at the island after 2 hours on a boat, only to find that there where no activities available other than a tour of the town on the island (1 hour drive). Really disappointed with this tour!
