Pick-up locations in Araçatiba and Praia Vermelha

The boat collects passengers from safe piers along the coast of the Araçatiba & Praia Vermelha.

It is possible to board directly from your pousada or hotel if it has a pier and is also listed below. If not, you will need to go to the nearest public pier.

You will find below a list of pick-up points. When booking, please make sure you choose the correct pick-up location, or there is a chance you may not be found.

IMPORTANT: There may be people travelling from Praia Vermelha or Araçatiba to the airport, therefore there is no tolerance for delays!

Unless passengers are at the designated pick-up point when the crew passes for them, the vessel will continue on to the next pick-up point without them.

The booking will be considered a “No show” in these cases and no refund will apply, or changes to new dates or time allowed.
