The tour begins at a pier in the Barra da Tijuca Lagoon exit to the sea where we departure on a safe boat to a gorgeous tour in the best spot to the Planasurf towing experience around the local islands (Tijuca islands archipelago). This will be an amazing experience where you can either practice Planasurf or stay on the boat and contemplate the huge nature of the mountains like Pedra da Gávea and Pedra Bonita (hanggliding point) with a manificent scenario of Rio de Janeiro from the sea.
Planasurf was founded by me in April/2019 to develop a brazilian invention known for more than 20 years to visitors at the paradisiac Fernando de Noronha island in the northeast of Brazil. It brings a unique and fantastic experience of snorkeling using towing ropes and boards. This invention was hidden there until new sophisticated boards began to appear in other places around the world. I decided to offer it out of Fernando de Noronha island using even more innovating towing experiences such as new boards invented and the Planafloater buoys. Being a professional water-polo player, diver, surfer and passionate by outdoor and sea sports I decided to offer this experience to delight people in a innovative way to enjoy a boat tour maximizing the sense of freedom with total safety professionalism acquired in 20 yrs of corporate industries.
