Nautical Tourism in Brazil

September 12, 2008 | By More

The Brazilian Ministry of Tourism has a website devoted to Nautical Tourism in Brazil. It has an English version.


The website has a beautiful layout and tons of information on the Brazilian coastline, the weather, tide charts and other useful information for sailors.

It also contains complete information on the marinas at Baía de Todos os Santos, Fernando de Noronha, Fortaleza, Ilha Grande, Ilhabela, João Pessoa, Morro de São Paulo, Natal, Paraty, Recife, Río de Janeiro and Ubatuba.

The initiative is part of the declared policy of the Brazilian Authorities to promote tourism in Brazil abroad almost exclusively among the upper-class markets. Foreign currency, rather than number of visitors, is the force behind the promotion of Brazil as a tourist destination. The website Golf in Brazil is also part of that initiative.

    No mention can be made about Joao Pessoa without mentioning that other mine of nautical information
    all about Joao Pessoa.
    Dock forget to dock at Jacare for competitive rates. PP also has some good info on diving and wrecks.

    Andy, could you give us a few links to nautical information on your site? I haven’t been able to find any information.

  3. Andy Knowsyt says:

    Hope this helps but if it doesnt just go to Paraiba paradise and go to “Articles” then “Joao Pessoa; capital of sport” and read down the page. There are a lot of fishermen, sialers, divers and nautical sorts on the forum so you can leave a comment and leave a message on the forum. Heres the link. Good luck.

    Surprise, surprise, it works and takes you straight to the page. I do know that at the get togethers in Joao Pessoa (142 people at the last one) fishing, diving and wrecks comes up regularly. Send PMs to London Lad or Kiteflyer fishing gurus to a man 🙂
