Saveiros Tour operates a cultural boat tour around Guanabara Bay, taking in major sights including Sugar Loaf Mountain, Niterói’s Contemporary Art Museum, the Rio-Niteroi bridge and Ilha Fiscal. The two-hour trip in a traditional schooner departs from the Gloria Marina daily at 0930. Tickets can be bought at the marina.
Other boat companies and ferries operate from the docks by Praca XV, offering daily trips to Niterói, Ilha Paquetá and other islands in the bay; or day cruises further afield, along the Costa Verde to Angra dos Reis, Ilha Grande and Paraty. Contact the Espaço Cultural da Marinha for details.
