Decide which boat service you will take, then buy your ticket for Conceicao or Angra (R$ 41 pp).
Step 3 - Boat Services to Ilha Grande
My best advice is to get a bus from Rio - Jacarei as the trip is shorter and qthe crossing quicker.
Tell the driver that you wish to get off in Jacarei, to ensure your bags are put on last and easy to retrieve in Jacarei.
