Ilha Grande Private Transfers

On this page you can make instant bookings for your private transfers between Ilha Grande and Rio de Janeiro.  Please read about each transfer before making a reservation to understand how they work!

Private Transfers are the quickest and easiest way to get between Rio de Janeiro and Ilha Grande, but if you are looking for regular shuttles click here.

Your driver will meet you at your accommodation, the airport, or from the ferry from Ilha Grande, at a time of your choosing. There are two types of private transfers; one which uses regular shared boats for the crossing to the island, and the other which uses private boats for the crossing.


Below you can read about the two types of transfers, then book and pay instantly! 

Private Transfers from Rio to Ilha Grande


Pick ups between 5:00 am & 15:00pm only!

You will drive about 2 hours south of Rio and then have passage provided on the next regular speed boat which takes around 20 minutes to reach the main pier of Abraao on the island.

The regular speed boats depart daily between 08:30am & 18:30pm,  which requires you to depart Rio by at least 15:00pm in order to have no problems making one of the boats in time.  

If you need to depart later than this, see the full private options further down the page!


These transfer can depart at any time of the day.  You will be picked up at your preferred time and travel a couple of hours south to where you will have a private boat just for your group waiting to take you to Ilha Grande.

This is for people who want the quickest way to the island, without waiting for scheduled boats.  An especially good option if your flight is arriving later than 15:00pm to one of the Rio airports.

Boats used are for groups up to 5 people, so if your party is larger than that, please consult us for a quote!


Private Transfers from Ilha Grande to Rio de Janeiro


The share boats from Ilha Grande have scheduled departures from the main pier of Abraao village.  You select your time of boat departure while making your reservation, and then pick up your tickets from an agency once on Ilha Grande.  The driver will be waiting on the mainland for your boat to arrive, and then you drive to the airport if taking a flight, or to your accommodation in Rio city.


If you need to depart the island outside the hours of the regular boats, then this transfer is for you.  You let us know during the reservation process when you want to depart, and we will confirm where you meet your private boat in the Abraao township of Ilha Grande.

Once you arrive to the mainland your driver will be waiting to take you the rest of the way to one of the Rio airports, or to your accommodation in the city of Rio.
