O Verde Eco & Adventure Tours is a company specialized in outdoors and personalized trips on Ilha Grande. We deal with our clients directly and arrange customized tours based on their needs. We also offer tourist packages, including transportation and accommodation on the island, along with guided snorkeling, diving and hiking tours, customized and private trips. If you are staying in Rio for example, and want to visit the island in just one day, we have our excursion "One Day Trip" in which case our driver will pick you from your hotel door at 6:00 am and drop you off back at around 9pm. For nature lovers, we do a Hiking Expedition Around the Island in 5-7 days, visiting the most pristine beaches and camping in some of the most preserved areas of the Ilha Grande State Park. Our goal is to turn your stay into unforgettable experiences! Not only by visiting beautiful places, but interacting with locals and feeling nature under your skin...

Very friendly and outgoing staff! We went snorkeling for a day. There was organized snorkeling for a few hours, and then a number of beach visits where you could continue snorkeling on your own or do other beach activities. I recommend them.
