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.
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.
Excellent boat tour from Salvador. We stopped off at 2 islands, both beautiful however the 2nd island where we had lunch was paradise. The music and staff on the boat were very nice. The only areas I'd watch out for were 1) Viator tours include lunch and this wasn't always noted by the tour guide. 2) keep an eye on your drinks bill, the welcome drink is not free! Otherwise definitely recommend this
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!
