Rio International Airport to Ilha Grande Transfer

Rio International Airport to Ilha Grande Transfer

Shared transfers from the Rio International airport (GIG) to Abraao on Ilha Grande, including boat ticket.

Flights Arriving Between 08:30am & 14:30pm Only!

There is a minimum of 2 needed to confirm this transfer. If you are only one, please contact us with your arrival time to see if we already have the minimum. 

If your flight is arriving between the hours of 07:00am & 14:30pm, you will be met as you exit the airport baggage claim area by our representative, who will have your name on a sign.  You will be escorted to the next available van departing for the tiny seaside town of Conceição de Jacarei, located 2 hours south. 

Important - This is a shared transfer, and you may have to wait of up to a 1.5 hours before departing, while waiting for the other passengers who are scheduled to arrive at a similar time. e.g. if you arrive at 09:30am you maybe departing the airport around 11:00am or earlier.

Once you arrive to Conceição de Jacarei, you will have a support vehicle to help take your bags the short distance through narrow streets to an oceanfront office. Here you will wait for the next speed boat departing for Abraao on Ilha Grande.  The included boat crossing takes about 20 minutes in good weather.

Please note - from the oceanfront office, you will be responsible for carrying your own luggage about 50 meters to the pier. There are no cars on Ilha Grande, and you will also need to make your own way to your accommodation.  There are porters with carts you can contract to help once you arrive.

* Flight Delays:  After making your booking, you will need to supply us with your scheduled arrival time and flight number. If your flight is delayed, you will have to wait until another vehicle with spare seats is scheduled to depart.  Most of the time there are other departures within an hour and a half, but this is not guaranteed and we assume no responsibility if you have to wait longer.  If you wish to reserve a private transfer to avoid extended waiting times, you will find the link below to make the booking.

* Last Regular Boat:  The speed boats depart often until the last boat at 18:30pm.  If your flight delay causes you to miss this final boat, you will be required to pay for a private boat service directly to the fisherman of the Conceição de Jacarei village, or stay the night and take the first boat at 08:30am the next morning.
