During our visit to Salvador in late October, we had the pleasure of spending a wonderful day touring the bay with Eric. We met Eric and his crew early in the morning and sailed to a nearby island where, after wading ashore, we were treated to a wonderful muqueca lunch, local drinks and a beautiful view. We were lucky to... More

Exploring Salvador's bay on a catamaran with Eric is a must! After visiting the city it is a great thing to do : sailing an entire afternoon in the bay, diving from the boat, sipping the best caipirinha you have ever drunk, at coming back with the sunset.... fantastic! Strongly recommended.

Our choice to travel with Eric was a good one! On our first day in Salvador we met with Eric in the morning, he was on time and friendly. Take hats and sunblock, the only shadow is on the way back. Two hours under the sun can be tiring but the reward is worth it! Praia das Neves and the... More

Sailing with Eric was excellent! He's very knowledgable and extremely nice. The food was all fresh caught and grilled right in front of you and the beers and cocktails were always ice cold! The sunset from the boat is to die for, I'd highly suggest this tour, especially if you're looking for something fun to do that won't wipe you... More

A boat trip off of Salvador is a must when you visit the city. The beaches on islands off of Salvador are beautiful. Some are extremely crowded with tourists, but ERIC does an amazing job taking you and a small group of people to a beautiful and isolated island off the coastline of Salvador. Delicious lobster and crabs, caipirinhas, and... More
