The best speedboats to Ilha Grande

Our service uses the best boats to Ilha Grande! The crossing is made in FlexBoats, which are known for their:

  • stability;
  • safety;
  • speed;

FlexBoats have inflatable tubes along the sides of the boat and a solid fiberglass hull. The hydrodynamics of this combination allows us to offer fast boat crossings to Ilha Grande while at the same time a smooth ride.


Serious Safety

Because of their high levels of buoyancy and low center of gravity Flex boats are virtually impossible to capsize. Even a puncture of the inflatable sides would not sink a FlexBoat because the hulls float unassisted. Our sailors have years of experience and the boats have life jackets for every passenger.
