The Boat to Praia Vermelha

Arriving in Angra dos Reis, your next step is to board a boat to Praia Vermelha. The trip across the water takes about 60 mins and is quite enjoyable. Watch out for dolphins, whales, flying-fish or even a stray penguin.

You will find fishing boats to Praia Vermelha at the 'Cais dos Pescadores' or the 'Cais do Turismo'. You can view the pier on Google Maps. If you ask for the 'Trailler do Maguinho' (Maguinho's trailer), he will help you find your boat and if needed he can help with parking your car.

Note: Make sure NOT to ask for information about boats from the tourist centre as they will most likely send you to the wrong side of the island!
