Reasons to Charter a Yacht to Brazil

Endless Ecosystems

From pink dolphins skimming the waters of the Amazon to whale watching off the coast, long billed toucans tilting their head to watch you pass beneath the canopy, and sea turtles drifting serenely through the coral reef – Brazil boasts one of the most diverse eco-systems on earth. The Amazon is a must see for those wanting to lose themselves in the lush jungle. Yachts can charter the sweeping river, hitting the hot spots of Alta do Chao, Parintins, and Manaus.

Buzzing Cityscapes

Samba beats, sassy cocktail bars, lively restaurants, and an unbeatable joie de vivre for life – there’s a thousand and one reasons to fall hard for Brazil’s colourful cities. Rio tops the charts as a city that strikes up the soul, with its gorgeous backdrop of mountains and blue waters, its iconic statue, and its harbour brimming with sailboats and yachts. San Paulo too is all cosmo charm and offers some incredible dining options and plenty of late nights waxing lyrical with the locals.

Breathtaking Beaches

Caipirinha in hand and visions of sugar white sands and waters so clear and warm you can see every single shell on the seabed - Brazil is a beach lovers dream. With so much coastline to explore and a wealth of scattered islands, you can soak up the sun on the shores of Isla Grande, snorkel through the Blue Lagoon, float and fish along the islands west of Abraao, and find secret spots as you sail the fjords of Saco de Mamangua.
