After the explanation of the expedition and safety guidelines, carried out by the Costa Leste team, the participants continue in 4x4 transport to the place where the paddling starts, located in the village of Alazão, Pequenos Lençóis. The paddling follows the current of the river, and makes strategic stops along the way, the kayaks carry a box, with supplies and drinks for the participants.
The transfer of equipment is carried out by the team, as well as instructions for use and navigation safety.
As our kayaks are like small boats, that is, it allows us to access more isolated parts of the river away from the flow of boats for tours in the places. The same transport used to arrive is still waiting for us to return to the city of origin.
During our kayak expeditions, the absence of engines brings nature closer to the participants, facilitating the observation of animals in their natural habitats. Making the experience unforgettable, however, we didn't get close enough to intervene in their environments, we just watched the show of life.
The expedition has several strategic stops along the way, sometimes on freshwater beaches, completely isolated from people, sometimes in riverside communities.
In the communities, we are always welcomed and invited to try their seafood-based spices, a subsistence activity that sustains the people of Pequenos Lençóis Maranhenses.
Along the expedition, one of the strategic stops is Praia das Vassouras, where participants enjoy the lagoons, the dunes and enjoy a delicious typical lunch at Dona Graça's restaurant. After lunch, we develop a short paddle of 1mn to the meeting point with the East Coast EcoAventura transport.
