Are you in doubt about what to do on the Island of Magic?
We have an incredible option for you!
Tourism is knowing a certain place through new experiences that generate fun, knowledge and good memories.
They are pleasurable experiences that you can have alone or with the people you love, that make you remember the good times for the rest of your life.
There are several ways to do tourism: it can be done by private car, in groups via van or bus, or even walking (the famous “Walking Tours”).
Florianópolis has innumerable activities and walks, but what do you NEED to do as a tourist while you are here?
In cities surrounded by water, like Floripa, the best option is, without doubt, tourism via navigation, mainly aboard the Pirate Ship!
There are several reasons to choose this option, let’s see:
- Absence of traffic and TYPICAL traffic jams of the big cities;
- Comfort during the ride: spacious boat, in which you can walk and dance during the trip;
- Visual beautiful and different from the beaches, nature and landscapes;
- Possibility of sighting the GOLFINOS;
Unusual experience, after you probably do not walk by boat every day, is not it?
- Opportunity to socialize with other people, from different cultures and different countries who also came to have fun with us;
- History and culture in the Fort of Santa Cruz, located on the Island of Anhatomirim;
- Opportunity to appreciate the cuisine of Santa Catarina on the Costeira da Armação Beach;
- Fun and animation guaranteed by the crew and pirates during the tour.
Are you curious? We will explain each point better and there will be no doubt about embarking on this pirate adventure.
Absence of Traffic and TYPICAL Emblems of the big cities
Florianópolis is a wonderful city, with many beaches, beautiful people and security, and many people came to live here.
Unfortunately, the population growth has not been accompanied by an efficient urban mobility, which leads, mainly in the summer when several tourists come to take advantage of the Island, rows and traffic jams, mainly in the hours held as “rush”.
However, when the Pirate Ship ride is done, there is no need to talk about stress in transit, after all, there are no rows at sea and few boats are authorized to make the itinerary of our trip (for ecological reasons and preservation of nature).
Unforeseen events are rare and the schedule is followed as planned.
The pirate ship ride is the perfect activity for those who want to disconnect from the daily affairs and enjoy the breeze and the relaxing landscapes of our Island.
Comfort during the trip
Walking in car and van is not an experience of the most comfortable, is not it? even more if it is for a long period of time. After all, you do not want to spend your vacation inside a car in traffic jams.
You will not have this problem on our trip.
Just the fact of navigating and admiring the landscape already makes you forget the world out there and live the moment.
The boats are large, with an approximate capacity for 150 people, bathrooms, bar, music, guide, in addition to the animation of the pirates and the crew always ready to help, all following the rules of the Captaincy of the Ports of Santa Catarina and ICMBio.
Florianópolis has more than 40 beautiful beaches, being a true paradise for anyone who appreciates nature.
During our boat trip, you will have a panoramic view of the beaches of the north of the Island, such as:
- Canasvieiras beach;
- Beaches of Jurerê Nacional and Internacional;
- Playa del Fuerte;
- Beach of Daniela.
- In addition to stopping for lunch at the Beach of the Costera da Armação, which is located in the municipality of Governador Celso Ramos.
Who knows by looking at the beaches you do not choose the next beach you want to enjoy.
During the whole trip you will see a lot of nature, however, nothing calls more attention than the dolphins that inhabit the waters of Florianópolis!
When they appear, they steal the party, even stopping the boat to admire them.
They are about 30 dolphins that live in the region, more precisely in the Bay of the Dolphins, central point of all our walk, although they can be sighted anywhere, since they are free in nature. Unfortunately, for that reason, we do not guarantee that we will see them in all the trips.
One thing is certain, they are not alone, that is, when we see one, we will probably see more.
All boats are accompanied by an environmental driver duly accredited by ICMBio to ensure that all environmental regulations are respected, guaranteeing the preservation of nature and that dolphins continue to live in the region for many years.
Is not something you do everyday
Well, I think there’s no more doubt that it’s a unique experience, is not it?
Unless you reside in cities with a lot of water like Amsterdam and Venice, you rarely take a boat trip.
It is a different experience from your day to day, something new and that can be very fun.
After all, that’s the reason why tourism is done, right?
The Pirate Ship Promenade provides that experience, as well as being perfect to take photos as a souvenir and fun to tell people to ask how their vacations were.
Meet New People
There are thousands of people who know that the pirate ship ride is the best option and they do that activity every year.
The vast majority of people are tourists who come from all over the world to enjoy and enjoy the magic of Florianópolis, they are good people who are here to have fun and socialize with their families and friends, also wanting to know the city, allying fun and culture
As previously mentioned, the boats have a capacity for about 150 people, who stayed together during the entire ride, which can last three or five hours.
Therefore, it is an excellent opportunity to exchange experiences and advice, get to know new cultures and make lasting friendships.
In the end, tourism is also done by the people you know on the trip and who can make everything even more special.
Santa Cruz Fort in the Island of Anhatomirim
For many, Anhatomirim Island is the main point of the whole trip, its name is in the Tupi language and means “Little Devil Island”.
It is a place full of history and nature that was the scene of important moments of Santa Catarina and Brazil.
They are about 4.5 hectares of island and with 3 small beaches rich in biodiversity.
The Fortress of Santa Cruz is located there, the first fortress created to protect Santa Catarina from invasions from other countries, in addition to other functions such as:
