Friends and I having fun before the departure.

Fortaleza’s boat trip is one of my favorites sightseeings in Fortaleza. It takes place in Beira Mar Avenue, the most famous tourist area in our beloved city with daily departures. From Monday to Friday: depart at 4 pm, return at 6 pm; From Saturday to Sunday:  depart at 10 am, return 12am and depart at 4 pm, return at 6 pm.

View from the boat

It runs for two hours in the stunning Fortaleza coastline. That’s really beautiful to see the city from that angle.

I have had both experiences, in the morning and in the late afternoon. Both of them have their peculiarities. I can’t say which one is better. It’s up to you.

I’m going to point out the pros and cons of them:

Morning: pros it’s cheaper (about 30%), cons you can’t see the sunset.

Late afternoon: pros the weather is cool, after the boat trip, you can walk along the busy Beira Mar Avenue sidewalk and visit other free attractions like “Feirinha da Beira Mar.”


Relaxing day

In both of those periods of the day, you will spend a lovely, relaxing day.

An hour later, the boat stops for who wants to swim or bathe in the sea for about 20 minutes. They let available float if you wish to get one (for free).

During the trip, you can buy soda, beer, water or coconut water.

Bathing in the sea

This is an amazing entertainment, where a local will explain some historical sunken vessel that you’ll find during the way. There is also funny music in the background, to let your energy up. At the end of the excursion, they ask for money contribution. It’s optional, though.


You can book the tickets with Filomeno by the phone number +55 85 9 9985-5003, calling or messaging on WhatsApp.

You also can buy the tickets directly at 4293 Beira Mar Avenue. It’s in the same place as the departure.

So, why not come along for a relaxing day and enjoy Cearense hospitality at it’s best!
