Thanks very much in advance
Hi Michelle, I'm from Brazil. Fernando de Noronha is a beautiful island with a small harbour to anchor
. The island is a national park and has just one harbour that you can anchor
. You won't find facilities for your boat but is possible to board fresh water
with your dinghy
. It's a terrific place to dive, the best in Brazil.
Salvador has a very good marina. Be careful in Itaparica (an island close to Salvador in Todos os Santos bay) because some time ago friends from Salvador reported piracy
activities there. Recife is a huge city. The marina in Salvador is much better than the Cabanga Iate Clube In Recife.
In the south of Brazil you must go to Angra dos Reis and Paraty, close to Rio de Janeiro.
In general terms that's it. Feel free to contact me if you need some help!
Have a Nice trip!
