THE COMPANY

Palombeta’s concept was born in 2012 with our first speed boat together with the will of showing and providing our customers what we want for ourselves when we go out at the Bay of Paraty: speed to go further and far from the other boats, explore new places and leave the common places where everybody stops.

We can proudly state that in Paraty our company is the one with more boats to offer (3 speedboats), the widest variety of itineraries and also the one with more activities to do in a boat tour, besides being the only company in Paraty with a trained, skilled and fixed team. Our team is ready to show you the best of the Bay of Paraty from different angles and perspectives. The tour on a Palombeta speedboat will not be just a regular tour with any given sailor, it will be a proper experience guided by one of our skilled sailors which together with you wants to find out what is your prefered angle.

We are all licensed by the Brazilian Navy to work with passengers transport and all the boats are fully licensed according to local agencies.  We have all the rescue equipment required such as floating vests, floating devices, GPS and VHF radio. The boats are all up to date to all requirements made by the Navy of Brazil.

Our boats undergo periodical maintenance to keep the motors and all other system running perfectly, ensuring a safe tour and providing you with an unforgettable experience.

ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

We are all surfers, sailors, guides, fathers, teachers, students and travellers who are here to take you out on a trip you will not forget.

On our days off we often go out with our close ones to do exactly the same trips we take you on: see the wildlife, snorkel, explore the beaches and have a freshly caught fish for lunch. Or if you feel like getting active we can go hiking, waterskiing, kayaking, visit waterfalls or cruise around on our new stand up paddle board.

We genuinely believe that what we offer you is an experience that can't be topped in Paraty, having a fast boat to go around, explain you the peculiarities about this corner of the world, and visiting the areas of our coastline that are still untouched for the very same reason why you come on our boat: it is the only way to get there.

I lived the first years of my life in a remote fishing village on the Paraty coast, then my parents moved to the city in Paraty so our family could get a better education. Today I am a husband and the father of Nicholas, my 2 year old son from who I learn more and more each day. It will be a pleasure to have you on the boat so we can discover and experience the Paraty bay together!
