We sail every day, weather conditions permitting. Late mornings and mid-afternoons. 

We sail in-bay towards Rio's sister city of Niteroi, the harbor and historic sites of Rio. Conditions permitting, we will also visit open ocean waters and nearby beaches.​


Private Groups Only

Our marvelous boat tour in Rio de Janeiro is sought after by sailing enthusiasts or private groups looking for an extended stay on the water​. Here, you can plan celebrations and special meals for your onboard adventure. 

Conditions permitting, it may include a visit to the outer islands at the Cagarras Archipelago, two miles from the coast.

The archipelago is home to seabirds such as the frigates and atobás. It may occasionally be visited by dolphins and whales, the second half of the year.



The Sailboat

Sail in Rio's "Kamehameha" is a 39.5-foot cruising/ racing sailboat designed by German Frers and constructed by Fast Yachts. The sailboat is well known for her strength and seaworthiness. She is a blue water vessel equipped for coastal trips and fitted out with two cabins, two heads (bathrooms), a kitchen and a large saloon (living room).

The team


Cassio Gurjão

Captain and Owner

Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1956, Captain Gurjão is a sportsman who has enjoyed ocean-related activities since very young.

His career as a financial executive in the corporate world evolved parallel to his passion for the seas and sailing and financed the acquisition of Kamehameha in January 2008. Sail in Rio was founded as a consequence of this passion and of the increasing interest in sailing in Rio de Janeiro. 


Licensed Captain by the Brazilian Navy, Captain Gurjão accumulates significant sailing mileage from his trips north and south of the Brazilian coast.
