Tropical Island Boat Trip to Itaparica and Frades

The Bay of All Saints is the second largest bay in the world (after the Bay of Bengal) and the largest in Brazil, a region that was called by the Tupinambás indigenous group Kirimurê, which means "great inland sea." Once it was mapped by Portuguese in the Catholic holiday of All Saints Day, it also named the captaincy, then the province and also then the state of Bahia. Formed by a coastal boundary of 300 km, it was the epicenter of the Portuguese colonial civilization in the Americas.In this itinerary, during the schooner ride, a typical vessel of the region, our client will be delighted in the exuberant beauty of the bay, by the spectacular view of the city of Salvador of Bahia, the nostalgic sound of a samba, and will be inspired by a delicious caipirinha drink with tropical fruit ...The tropical island tour provide many great moments, We will disembark in one of the 56 islands that surround the bay, the island Paradise of Friars which provides us with a beautiful scenery, beaches, lakes, waterfalls, mountains, palm trees, and native trees including Pau-Brazil.You will have a relaxing time by the seashore and sample some snacks and drinks as well.
