Ilha Grande Transfers the Easy Way!
The Green Toad Bus has direct transfers to Ilha Grande from Rio de Janeiro and Paraty using 10 seat passenger transport vehicles. Of course Ilha Grande is an island and you need a boat to get there, but don't worry, we will include your boat trip to Ilha Grande as well. From Rio the van makes pick-ups around the city, while at the same time a van picks-up from around the town of Paraty before both vehicles meet a private boat docked at the coastal town of Conceicao de Jacarei. The boat trip across to Ilha Grande takes about 40 minutes and allows you great views as you aproach the tropical Island.
Save the stress of figuring out how to get to Ilha Grande from Rio de Janeiro on your own by local transport. The Rio bus terminal is a little far from where most people stay in the Southern Zone of Rio (Copacbana, Ipanema & Botafogo). A taxi there alone will cost you at least $15 USD, and then you have to hope there is availability on your bus. When you arrive at the other end you then have to take another taxi from the bus terminal in Angra dos Reis to the docks hoping you are in time for the daily ferry. Instead, let us pick you up from Rio on our daily backpacker transfer service which collects you from your door and transfers you to an included boat to Ilha Grande. You also usually arrive before 3pm which is earlier than the daily local ferry to Ilha Grande from Angra dos Reis!
Similarly, our transfer from Paraty to Ilha Grande makes life easier. The transfer sets out each morning picking people up from their hostels or pousadas. You will then make the trip 2.5 hours north to meet the boat to Ilha Grande.
Boat trip to the island is included with the transfer!
From Rio the pick-up from the Southern Zone (Ipanema, Copacabana, Leblon, Leme) will be between 11:00 & 12:00 midday at your accommodation, if your accommodation is located in Botafogo, Flamengo, Catete, Gloria and the areas of Central, Lapa and Santa Teresa expect pick-up to be from 10:30 to 11:30 am.
Pick-ups from the airport, Barra da Tijuca, and accommodation located out of the tourist areas of Rio are not included in these transfers, and you will be asked to meet the van in a more central area.
The boat first arrives to Ilha Grande at the Aquario Hostel dock then makes its way to the Abraao central dock for the second drop off. The Aquario Hostel dock is located on the far left when facing the village. The Abraao dock is located more towards the centre of town and is the principle port of the island. Walking to your accommodation on Ilha Grande is not suitable for baggage on wheels due to the sandy trails.
These transfers also run in reverse from Ilha Grande to Rio de Janeiro departing daily from the same previously mentioned docks. There are 2 return transfers to Rio per day, the first departs at 10am and arrives to Rio at 13:30pm approximately. The second return transfer departs the same docks at 13:00pm and the usual arrival time is 17:00pm depending on traffic. The departure for the transfer to Paraty is only at 13:00pm.
It is also possible to transfer from Ilha Grande to the Rio airports, but if you require this make sure the above estimated arrival times are long before your flights departure in case there are delays. You only need to inform the driver of your drop-off address on the day of return!
