Do I need experience to do Canyoning, Rafting, Ducking, Tubbing, Kayak or Surf?
Absolutly not! Our mission is to initiate lay people into adventure sports. Before each activity, there is a theoretical and practical training that teaches the basics of the sport. Of course you should not go for the first time in a high water level rafting or surf on a beach with big waves. You need to not be afraid of water and for Canyoning is a desirable experience in abseiling or climbing, but if you do not have any, we can give you a pratice the day before.
Do I have to know how to swim to do Canyoning, Rafting, Tubbing, Kayak or Surf?
It's good to know how to swim, but is not essential. In training before the activity we will show the safety procedures and the instructors will give special attention to you.
Is it posible to do watersports in the winter?
Yes, it is. Brazil has great wheather even in the winter. We have wetsuites to provide in cold days.

How do I recognize a professional company?
Check how old the company is and if it is registred legaly. Ask about the gear and if they offer insurance. Ask about safety and if they have first aid courses. Clarify all your doubts before, your safety is more important that a few dollars. Brazil has great adventure tourism companies but be aware to companies that offer prices way lower than others.
