Tofino Expeditions

Celebrating 35 Years of Award Winning Sea Kayaking Tours


Discover some of the many wonders of Brazil on one of our newest trips. We’ve paddled all over the world and “perfect” is not a word we use lightly, but 150 miles west of Rio de Janeiro on Brazil’s southern coast we’ve found an area that is very nearly perfect for sea kayaking. This is the Costa Verde, a verdant swath of Atlantic rainforest bordered by warm aquamarine water protected from the open Atlantic by Ilha Grande, literally “the Big Island.”
The journey starts with an exploration of the iconic sites and vibrant culture of Rio de Janeiro, one of the world’s great cities, and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Rio was the #1 destination on the New York Times’ ”46 Places to Go in 2013." You’ll have a special city tour that includes Rio’s most iconic sights and some of its hidden treasures. The lively and remarkable cuisine of Brazil is the product of Portuguese Colonial, Indigenous, and African elements influenced by successive waves of immigration, and on this trip, you’ll experience cuisine that will both surprise and delight you.

What Guests Are Saying

I had a wonderful time and I’m so glad I decided to go! All three of my kayak excursions with Tofino Expeditions have been more than vacations, they have been life enriching and educational. A joy, thank you!
