The boat is super clean and very spacious. The captain takes care of everything all you have to do is have fun. The captain took us to several different awesome areas to snorkel and just hangout. If you are in the Paraty area Paulo is definitely the boat captain to pick. He is very vigilant of his passengers and ensures everyone is safe and having a good time. This trip was with great friends but can't wait to go back out and take the family this time.

The beginning: After on-line reviewing some boat trip provides in Paraty, we contacted Captain Paulo using Whatsapp. He not only provided prompt replies but also clear information related to price, payment methods and overall package. He was very punctual and the meeting point is extremely convenient - in the canal at Pereque-Acu river. We literally almost parked the car on top of the boat. It make it easier to unload all the drinks (and little food) we had. The boat package included water and ice only. That was very convenient to us, so we could select the beer type and any spirit we would like to have on-board. We also had some snacks to go with as the plan was to find a beach to have lunch. The boat: It was in pristine condition (almost immaculate). You can tell the captain prides himself in taking very good care of the boat. Very comfortable it had more space than we need (group of 4 tall adults) but allows for more comfort. The boat has a head for your physiological necessities (additional comfort). Easy to get in the water and out of the water. The captain: Paulo is extremely easygoing and knowledgeable of the region. At any point in the tour we felt unsafe or in danger, quite the opposite. He customizes the spots to visit based on your likes, therefore, do some research beforehand if you want to maximize your experience. He took us to the 'hot spots' points and to some secluded places (where we had lots of fun). From cliff jumping to a hidden cave, Paulo was a great captain and 'tour guide'. The overall experience: We had a great time all together. From booking, to loading/unloading our stuff, car parking, picture-taking, places visit.... it all amounted for a memorable and fun day. I would recommend Xodo boat (Captain Paulo) without hesitation and WILL definitely go back. The above and beyond: His payment method was Brazilian Reais (cash) or Bank transfer - well-informed beforehand. By as Murphy's law predicts, wire transfer did not work and it took 04 banks until we were able to withdraw money. Needless to say that we did NOT have money when boarding the boat. After explaining the captain our ordeal, he said: No problem, you pay afterwards.... (we had just met him!). He is a great person.

Paulo, the owner of this private boat is the best person in Paraty to take you for a great day around all the islands and doing everything you want, whether it is just for sight seeing, diving into the the blue/green waters, snorkeling, eating ...basically just fantastic and whether there are just two or 9 of you no noise from the public boats.. Great seating areas all around the boat - outside in the sun or in the shade.. This boat and owner is by far the best in Paraty.. DAVID

Mr. Paulo and his boat Xodó are definitely the best part on the trip here in Paraty. An exclusive trip around the coast through the island with amazing stops to snorkeling. Despite the amazing views our guide gave us that extra feeling of being well received. Fair cost , water and ice for free (others use to tax it) and definitely the best of customer experience. Highly recommended for me and my lovely girlfriend. Tks , Paulo!
