After pick up at the hotels, we will continue the ride by van until we reach the Pier where we will board the Schooner. Departure is around 9 am. The Schooner trip until the first stop takes around 1:30h. Enjoy the views of All Saints Bay to the sound of live music and cool off with tasty drinks (not included) from the onboard service. Upon arriving at Ilha dos Frades, you will understand why it has the blue flag seal, which is assigned to places that have crystal clear water! Entering the island and its village (about 100 inhabitants), you will probably hear the pleasant sound of the saxophone played by a former resident of the island who receives visitors playing music.

The beach has tables and parasols, as well as service and vendors. Enjoy a sea bath in the warm waters of Ilha dos Frades, as well as optional activities (not included) such as snorkel rentals, SUP ... take the opportunity to climb the stairs and visit the Church of Nossa Senhora do Guadalupe, and enjoy the most beautiful views in the region. You will have around 2 hours to enjoy this paradise.

Next up is the largest and most famous island in the Bay: Itaparica Island. After a 45-minute Schooner ride, you will be able to enjoy a relaxing sea bath with calm and transparent waters and still venture into optional activities (not included) such as kayaking, stand up paddle, among others. You can also enjoy a buffet lunch (not included) with different flavors from the region. You will have around 2 hours to get enchanted with the second part of the tour until you return to the Schooner that will take passengers to the Pier of Salvador.
