One of the most amazing things I've ever done

Such a well thought out eco experience. If you do anything in Bonito do this. Well worth every penny!

This flotation-snorkling tour is simply a must-do, when in Bonito. Crystal clear water, lots of fish and English-speaking guides. Bring a go-pro camera or rent it at the location (smartphones are of no use..) Beware, even though you are wearing a wet suit, it gets a bit cold after spending 2-3 hours in the water.

I read below various reviews of experienced divers /snorkellers who say this snorkelling trip is not that interesting. But as for me this snorkeling trip in the small river was a fantastic and totally new experience that cannot be compared to any of my regular diving or snorkelling experiences in the sea/oceans all over the world. The snorkelling is done... More

Rio da Prata is my favorite at Bonito!! It all starts at their farm, from where you get equipped (mascara, snorkel, wetsuit and water boots) then groups of max 9 people are transported to their RPPN. A 20 mins walk and the magic begins at Rio Olho D'Água - where you can literally see where the river "borns", Just gushing... More

This is a must-do activity. Floating in this river was an unforgettable experience. You'll have to wear wetsuit and a snorkel for this. The river is crystal clear and has lots of fishes.

Why not float down a river for 3 hours swimming along side fish and sighting hot springs along the way. The visibility was superb as you can see from most photos.. the water is so refreshing and you feel so relaxed floating down the river along side different species of fish and river grass. The tour was well structured, informative... More

This activity lasts about 3 hours and involves wearing a 3/4 length wet suit and boots and snorkeling down a crystal clear warm river with hundreds of fish. There are flotation devices to wear for non-swimmers or those unsure of their skill level. The group of approximately 10 receive a thorough orientation and trial swim with gear. There is assistance... More

There are so many trips in Bonito that it's almost impossible to make your choice. This one was recommended to us by Echoes agency and we enjoyed it a lot. In the morning you are taken from your pousada by van (if you purchased a shared transport at the agency) to the fazenda where this trip starts. Then, a group... More

Very organized tours in a natural sanctuary of springs with clean and crystal clear waters with several different species of fish. Flotation takes approximately 3 hours. It is not necessary to make efforts or swim well. Just let the body go and follow the river flow. Do not miss it! It is an unforgettable experience.
