Island Schooner Cruise Tour
Five years ago I proudly assisted Anthony Bourdain's crew with logistics when Tony filmed a Parts Unknown segment here in Salvador 2013. I will never forget when we filmed that awesome island cruise off Salvador 's coast in the gigantic Bay of Saints. On this island tour, you'll experience the lovely beaches of Frades and Itaparica islands, which are just two of the 56 islands of All Saints Bay. The panoramic view of Salvador's cityscape from your ship on the Bay of Saints is spectacular!
Refreshing warm waters around the Frades island make for an exciting start to this awesome excursion. Our next stop is a visit to the most famous of the bay’s islands: Itaparica, whose beaches feature calm tide pools. Chance for light trekking, horse riding, and brief city tour possible.
We'll enjoy a buffet lunch at a local restaurant facing the beach. This tour will allow you to have an outstanding view of the Upper and Lower Cities and other islands in the bay. We arrive back in Salvador by day's end.
We leave the city harbor on a safe and comfortable schooner with a professional pilot, private bilingual guide, bartenders, servers, plus live samba music. Our guests are welcome to enjoy tropical drinks while they bathe in the wonderful Bahian sun. We recommend the Caipirinha cocktail to all our guest who loves exotic, tropical spirits.
The first stop on your Island Schooner Cruise Tour will be Priest Island, a stunning tropical paradise where one can swim, snorkel, sunbathe, stroll along the sandy beaches, or purchase shells, coral, or other handicrafts made by local merchants.
After two hours at Priest Island, we board our schooner, set sail for Itaparica Island, and enjoy a delicious lunch of salads, beans & rice, fish, meats, desserts, and coffee. Following lunch, our guests may take a short tour featuring a stop at the original "Fountain of Youth", or simply relax on the beach.
