Sailing Brazil: A cruise down the country’s east coast

  • December 16, 2021

Often skipped by cruisers, Floris van Hees and Ivar Smits discover tropical anchorages, majestic animals and bustling cities while sailing Brazil and share their tips for cruising the east coast

The bright green vegetation of the Fernando de Noronha was the perfect backdrop as we took our first morning swim in a fortnight, writes Ivar Smits .

It extended from the top of the striking Morro do Pico peak to the golden beaches below.

As if on cue, a dolphin pirouetted out of the water close to us before another decided to take a closer look at the volcanic archipelago’s newest residents.

In the distance, a turtle came to the surface to breathe. Elegant frigate birds and acrobatic gannets flew around our Buchanan 47 ketch, Lucipara 2 .

Our first encounter with Brazil was nothing short of magical.

The island was in stark contrast to what we had seen while sailing the 1,400 miles from Cape Verde across the Atlantic Ocean.

Flora and fauna were limited to fields of seaweed, a single bird and the two fish we caught.

The only proof that we were not alone were symbols of ships on our plotter. At night, we could follow the starry sky all the way to the horizon.

The weather was anything but constant; the northeast trade wind decreased the further south we got, until leaving us altogether in the Doldrums.

There, showers would come and go and just as we wondered how long we would be stuck in this windless zone, a tropical wave brought relief.

Its strong wind pushed us out of the Doldrums and into the area where the southeast trade wind blows. It made the remainder of our first ocean crossing a breeze.

Still, the longer the trip took, the more we longed for land.

Fernando de Noronha, about 217 miles off mainland Brazil, was ideally situated on our route to Salvador de Bahía; it felt like an oasis in a blue desert.

After our morning swim we kayaked to the beach to check in with the harbourmaster, Marcos.

He barely spoke English, so Floris’ Portuguese lessons came in handy. The costs for anchoring and visiting the island were steep, so we decided to limit our stay to two days.

Not wanting to lose a minute, we immediately went for a hike as soon as the paperwork was settled.

Past a small settlement we found a viewpoint from where we could look down on a pristine, golden beach.

Rarely had we seen such an idyllic beach. Coconut-laden palm trees completed the picture of a tropical paradise.

Sailing Brazil: Two sides to Salvador

The second leg of our maiden ocean crossing took another week, but it felt shorter as the weather was fair and our pantry was full of tropical fruit and fresh vegetables.

When we approached Salvador de Bahía, a whale breached not far from the boat as if to welcome us.

Full of excitement, we sailed into a large bay lined by high-rise apartment buildings, which made the metropolis seem like a tropical version of Manhattan.

Our mood changed as we walked through the city. The historic centre boasts colourful colonial buildings, monumental churches, and museums, but heavily-armed military policemen on every corner revealed a darker side.

‘Don’t go outside the centre on foot,’ harbourmaster Dominique advised, so to visit a supermarket, we took a taxi.

We drove past dilapidated buildings, where homeless people lay on cardboard mattresses. At a set of traffic lights, a one-legged woman tried to earn some money by cleaning car windows.

Down the road an expensive SUV drove through the automatic gates of a luxury, camera-protected apartment complex. The city’s dichotomies were unmistakable.

We saw another face of Brazil when we explored Salvador’s large bay.

We dropped anchor at Ilha de Itaparica amid a dozen other cruisers. It’s well sheltered and known to be safe. There is even a marina , which we only used to leave our kayak to go ashore.

In the small village there are supermarkets, restaurants and even a public standpipe where locals and cruisers alike could fill their bottles and jerry cans.

The city across the bay felt like a world away.

After an easy day sail further south, we anchored at the friendly hamlet of Gamboa, and made our way on winding paths to the village of Morro de São Paulo.

A small yacht sailing offshore

Offshore sailing skills: All you need to know

Will Bruton finds out what coastal cruisers should consider before taking their small yacht on an offshore adventure

After a few hours of sweating, climbing, and clambering, we found an ideal resting place on a fairy tale beach. A refreshing sip from a coconut made it all worth it.

The water taxi back to our boat was a bonus. Further south, in the bay of Camamu, we found another idyllic anchorage at Ilha de Goio.

We were surrounded by coconut trees and managed to pick some ourselves; the coconut water was refreshing and delicious and we eked it out as we made our way towards Rio de Janeiro.

Sailing past the Abrolhos Islands, a screeching sound had us fearful that we had a sudden mechanical problem.

Our panic subsided when a humpback whale fin suddenly appeared close to Lucipara 2 , followed by a second.

During half an hour we were treated to a whale song-and-dance performance. Their sounds resonated in the cabin. Occasionally they showed themselves, flapping their fins or revealing their tails.

The spectacle reached its pinnacle when two whales jumped out of the water in unison. What a show while sailing Brazil!

The animal watching continued past Cape Frio, where we saw large seabirds. ‘Yes, they are definitely albatrosses!’ Floris shouted after consulting our bird guidebook.

Without moving their wings, these impressive birds hovered just above the water and stayed with us for hours.

Like us, they made use of the steady trade winds that made sailing Brazil and along the coast quite comfortable.

Urban delights

Just as we approached Rio de Janeiro, the sun disappeared behind Sugarloaf Mountain.

The large, iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer, brightly lit, looked down on us from afar as we sailed into Niteroi, just across the bay from Rio.

We moored in the upmarket yacht club, Charitas, and after checking in took a dip in the huge pool.

We could have floated and swam all day but we still had to formally check-in, so we took a ferry across the bay to the centre of Rio to visit the Capitania for the necessary stamps – a must in every town.

Not much later, we strolled through the hip residential area of Santa Teresa, admired gigantic trees in the botanical garden and visited Christ the Redeemer to get a good view of the city, bay and beaches.

Back at sea level, we immersed ourselves in Brazilian beach culture, sipping caipirinhas on Ipanema beach.

At the same time, the many favelas on the outskirts of the city reminded us of the staggering social inequality that has become so characteristic of Brazilian urban life.

From Rio, it is a full day’s bus ride through rolling hills to Viçosa. We were there to meet Professor Irene Cardoso at a conference on agro-ecology.

Large-scale deforestation in Brazil is mainly due to livestock and industrial agriculture, including the growing of animal feed and other monoculture crops.

‘The typical approach is to cut down the valuable wood first, burn the remaining vegetation and sell the land to farmers. Where monoculture crops are planted, they deplete the soil and leave behind barren land. Agro-ecology, on the other hand, is based on cooperation with nature,’ she told us.

We saw the importance of agro-ecology when Irene took us to a coffee farm in Araponga. Between and around coffee bushes a variety of plants and trees ensured a healthy ecosystem.

Yet the coffee forest offered more than ecological benefits.

‘Farmers pooled their savings to buy this land. Using natural methods, they made the land fertile again after the former landlords had exhausted it. Besides coffee, which they sell for income, they grow various crops for their own use. It works well; more and more people are joining the cooperative. People are even coming back from the slums to farm here!’ Irene explained.

Back on board we chose our next destination: Ilha Grande.

Literally a large island, which, thanks to numerous bays, beaches, and surrounding islands, is one of the most beautiful sailing areas in Brazil.

We would have liked to have explored here longer, but the clock was against us.

Time to clear out

Of the 90 days we were allowed to stay in Brazil, we only had two weeks left, and we still had to sail 1,000 miles to Uruguay.

The further south we sailed, the less predictable the weather became.

‘Where are the stable winds that brought us here?’ Ivar sighed. Hardly any wind was expected for the next 10 days.

Thanks to our light-wind sail we managed to reach Parati, a picturesque town dotted with colonial buildings.

While we enjoyed the atmosphere there, we also constantly checked the weather reports to see if we could sail on.

With the slightest of breezes and a lot of patience we sailed to Florianópolis. There, the zone of calm wind ended abruptly.

A cold front with strong southerly winds was forecast and we didn’t want to be at sea when it arrived.

Meanwhile, our 90-day visa had run out, so we visited the authorities to formally clear out.

But rather than leave, we anchored in another bay and waited a week for northerly winds to take us to Rio Grande, Brazil’s most southerly port.

In the dark, we sailed up the river to the pontoon belonging to the Museo Oceanographic, which we knew to be free and informal.

Since we were already cleared out, it felt like sneaking in. It worked: no one asked for our papers.

On our way out, we held our breath as we sailed past the Capitania and an incoming navy ship.

They both left us alone, so with a sigh of relief we said goodbye to a magnificent country.

Sailing Brazil made an unforgettable impression on us.

In a fantastic cruising area, tropical islands, fascinating sea creatures, and bustling cities alternated at a pleasant pace.

The security situation in some places had us worried beforehand, but did not cause any problems.

We were, however, shocked by the scale of social inequality. The contrasts between the elite and the homeless poor were enormous.

Fortunately, we met inspiring people who were and are working on solutions to tackle deforestation and poverty.

If only we could have stayed longer than three months to sail this large, absolutely breathtaking country.

The security situation in Brazil raises questions among sailors. There are many reports of crime and violence, especially in the cities.

Some anchorages and bays have a bad reputation because of past incidents. These are often known to harbourmasters and other sailors.

Noonsite ( www.noonsite.com ) can provide an up-to-date overview. We had no problems.

The marinas and yacht clubs we visited were secure and we followed the advice of local people and fellow cruisers. We always locked our boat properly when we went ashore.

On hikes, we only took a limited amount of cash with us. The coastal towns we visited are heavily dependent on tourism, so the authorities have an interest in making sure visitors are safe.

We saw many police officers in all the places we visited and did not feel unsafe anywhere. As far as we are concerned, safety is therefore no reason to avoid this part of Brazil.

Upon arrival and departure in Brazil, a visit to the Immigration Service (Policia Federal/ NEPOM) and Customs (Receita Federal) is required.

In addition, check-in and check-out with the Port Police (Capitania) is mandatory in each port.

The order in which the authorities should be visited (Immigration, Customs, Port Police) is important. Most officials often only speak Portuguese. Some basic skills in that language proved useful.

As Dutch citizens, Brazil granted us a 90-day stay as a tourist.

In principle, an extension is not possible as you have to spend at least 90 days outside of Brazil before being allowed to enter for another 90 days.

Rules may differ depending on your nationality.

Brazil: Discover the fifth biggest country in the World

Brazil is both large in area as well as in population. It is the fifth biggest country in the World and with 200 million inhabitants; it is the most populated country in South America. Brazil shares borders with every South American country besides Chile and Ecuador and is adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean in the east. The country’s name derives from the Portuguese word ,,Brasa’’ which means “glow,” referring to the Brazil wood tree and its color. During the Colonial period, this wood was widely found in the wilderness along the Atlantic coast, as well as an important commercial product of the region, since it was used for dyeing fabrics. Brazil has an area of 8.5 million kilometers, the currency is called the “Real” and the official language is Portuguese. Due to the high rate of immigration, there are also a number of minority languages spoken in Brazil. Over one million Brazilians speak German. In addition, many people speak English, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese. This country embodies 62 National Parks. Brazil is the most species-rich country in the world although due to the deforestation of the Brazilian Rainforest, these animals and plant species are increasingly at risk. The southeast coastal regions of Brazil are the most densely populated areas, where the São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro metropolitan-regions are dominated by the coffee plantation landscape.

Brazil Yacht Charter

Brazil yacht charter.

Brazil provides a wide range of cultures, evergreen national parks, refreshing caipirinhas, paradise bays, and sailing areas for beginners and advanced sailors. Thanks to these tropical climates and the steady trade winds, this area provides a year-round yacht charter opportunity.

Some reasons, why Brasil is a good sailing destination:

  • Strong infrastructure
  • Optimum Wind Conditions
  • Advanced Navigation
  • A broad range of wildlife
  • Variety of conditions of weather

Brazil is broad both in terms of area and population. It is the fifth-largest country globally and has a population of around 200 million; Brazil is the most populous country in South America, is adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean, and shares its borders with every South American country other than Chile Ecuador. The country’s name derives from the Portuguese word ‘Brasa,’ which means ‘gloss,’ referring to Brazil’s woods and color. During the Colonial era, this wood was commonly found in the wilderness along the Atlantic coast, providing an essential commercial commodity for the area used for dyeing fabrics. Brazil has an area of 8.5 million kilometers, the currency is called Real, and the official language is Portuguese. Owing to the high immigration rate, there are also a variety of minority languages spoken in Brazil. Some Brazilians speak English, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. Brazil’s southern coastal regions are the most heavily populated areas where the coffee plantation landscape dominates the metropolitan regions of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Brazil, with its 62 national parks, is the most species-rich country in the world. However, due to the Brazilian Rainforest’s deforestation, these animals and plant species are increasingly at risk.

Brazil’s Environment & Weather

In the summer, the climate in the charter region of the east coast of Brazil is characterized by moderate winds and high temperatures. Average temperatures in the months between April and October are around 25 ° Celsius (77 ° Fahrenheit); however, temperatures are frequently above 30 ° Celsius (86 ° Fahrenheit) between November and March. The best time to sail in Brazil is April – May, and September through to the beginning of November. The water temperatures increase to a tropical climate of 28 ° Celsius (82 ° Fahrenheit). Sailing records carry evidence of a persistent sea-breeze, where the winds blow at around 19 knots, causing swelling infrequently. However, rain showers are expected in Brazil, and weather changes are likely all the time. Heavy rain is expected from time to time during the summer.

Navigating Conditions

It is possible to navigate Brazil all year round. However, Brazil’s navigation conditions are best in the summer, although some boaters prefer to sail in the spring and autumn. The sea temperature is around 28 degrees Celsius on average during the summer, but in the south of the country, temperatures will fall below 16 degrees during the winter.

During the summer in Brazil, winds from the north blow daily at a speed of 12 knots. The wind is always low between Rio de Janeiro and Florianópolis. In winter, look out for the “pampeiros,” a violent wind with speeds of up to 60 knots.

Boat rental is starting to grow more in Brazil. Still, motor boating is the main activity (apart from fishing). 80 percent of the Brazilian fleet is made up of motorboats .

Getting around

The local language is Brazilian Portuguese (not Spanish, not European Portuguese).

Timekeeping in Brazil is very versatile. It is typical and socially acceptable to arrive 30 minutes later than expected.

Buses operate daily between the city of Rio de Janeiro and Angra dos Reis. The bus arrives at the main entrance of Marina Verolme, and from there, it’s about 500m to the docks. The bus company from Rio de Janeiro to Angra dos Reis and Paraty is Costa Verde Transport. To get off at the marina bus stop, tell the driver in advance. It is not recommended to rent a car in Brazil.

Between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro

The new Marina Verolme is the ideal starting point for a more extended charter cruise. By car, it’s just thirty minutes away from Rio de Janeiro and roughly two hours away from Rio de Janeiro airport. With either a catamaran or a sailboat, going alone or sailing with an accomplished captain and crew, Brazil’s east coast is flexibly sculpted. The town of Paraty is the favorite stop among many sailors. Partay has 37,000 residents and is situated on the stunning Costa Verde. This small town has a charming old colonial atmosphere that has become a national monument. Besides, regular traffic in the city is blocked, so a calming walk through the old town with its music festivals and art exhibitions is strongly recommended.

On the other side, the multicultural São Paulo is waiting with its 11 million inhabitants. São Paulo has a lot of excitement and nightlife, so it is also compared to New York City. The best view of the skyline of São Paulo is definitely at the top of the 168-meter-high “Edificio Italia” hotel, which also contains an excellent Italian restaurant with panoramic views of the city. Boredom does not occur here, mainly when the annual Rios City Carnival occurs. During the carnival, the town is transformed into a single, vast, colorful group.

There are many fascinating stopovers and sights in Brazil: Salvador de Bahia, Fortaleza, Ocean Island, Rio de Janeiro, Ilha Grande, Vitória, the Amazon, Rio Grande do Sul, Santiago do Iguape … Tropical plants, sparkling waters, and sandy dune-lined beaches guarantee a memorable trip to Brazil.

Brazil: Floods continue to wreak havoc in southern Brazil, force evacuation of residents

Posted: May 17, 2024 | Last updated: May 17, 2024

Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil - Recent Storyline: Severe floods are continuing to wreak havoc in southern Brazil, with several thousands of residents displaced after buildings were submerged. Residents of Eldorado do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul, one of the areas hardest hit by the floods, are in limbo as they have been forced to evacuate their homes, unsure of when they'll be able to return. Valdinei de Borba and his family chose to stay put, guarding their remaining belongings against potential looters. However, the rising floodwaters paint a grim picture. Once the water recedes, they say Eldorado do Sul will no longer be home as the floods have shattered their sense of security. With Rio Grande do Sul reeling from the latest floods, geographers are using drones to create highly precise maps of the inundated areas, aiding critical rescue and relief efforts. Porto Alegre, another Rio Grande do Sul city, is striving for carbon neutrality by 2050. But officials recognize that global decarbonization efforts might not fully prevent the consequences of climate change already underway. According to a recent government report, nearly nine million people living in nearly 2,000 Brazilian cities face a high risk of flooding and landslides. And there are growing concerns about the safety of these populations as climate change makes extreme weather events more frequent and severe. Shotlist: Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil - Recent: 1.

I think it will happen because the river passes here, it goes all around. It's not the river that is off its course; it's us who are in the river, so the situation is going to get worse. We believe this is happening because of the climate situation. We are preparing to leave. We will not stay." [SHOTS OVERLAYING SOUNDBITE] 4. Reporter; 5.

In this regard, we are trying to improve this, the flood area, to facilitate their work. What we empirically observe, and studies have proven, is that we will increasingly have a sequence of events with greater intensity and frequency." [SHOT OVERLAYING SOUNDBITE] 10.

Because we are indeed going to have more and more extreme events, with intense heat, landslides, storms and rains. And unfortunately, this is what we have been experiencing here in Porto Alegre, in Rio Grande do Sul." 13. Aerial shots of flooded buildings. [Restrictions : No access Chinese mainland]

Sailing in Portugal: Tips for Navigating Local Customs

Discover essential tips and guidelines for sailing in Portugal, from entry requirements and marina etiquette to local customs and must-visit destinations. Ensure a smooth and enjoyable journey with this comprehensive guide.

Portugal is a dream destination for many sailors, with its stunning coastline, rich history, and vibrant culture. As you set sail to explore this beautiful country, it’s essential to be aware of local customs and regulations to ensure a smooth and enjoyable journey. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about sailing in Portugal, from entry requirements and marina etiquette to local customs and must-visit destinations.

Table of Contents

Entry requirements and documentation, navigating portuguese waters, marina etiquette and local customs, weather and sailing conditions, must-visit destinations, safety tips and emergency contacts.

Before setting sail for Portugal, it’s crucial to ensure that you have all the necessary documentation and meet the entry requirements. Here’s a list of the essential documents and regulations you should be aware of:

  • Passport: All crew members must have a valid passport, with at least six months remaining before expiration.
  • Visa: Depending on your nationality, you may need a visa to enter Portugal. Check the Portuguese Immigration and Borders Service website for the latest information on visa requirements.
  • Boat Registration: Your boat must be registered in your home country, and you should carry the original registration documents on board.
  • Insurance: You must have valid third-party liability insurance for your boat, covering at least €1,500,000.
  • VHF Radio License: If you have a VHF radio on board, you must have a valid radio operator’s license.
  • International Certificate of Competence (ICC): Although not mandatory, it’s highly recommended to have an ICC or an equivalent qualification to prove your competence as a skipper.

Upon arrival in Portugal, you must clear customs and immigration at your first port of call. You’ll need to present your passports, boat registration, and insurance documents. If you’re arriving from a non-EU country, you’ll also need to complete a Temporary Importation form, allowing you to keep your boat in Portugal for up to 18 months without paying import duties.

Portugal offers a diverse range of sailing experiences, from the rugged Atlantic coast to the tranquil waters of the Algarve. To help you navigate these waters safely and efficiently, here are some essential tips and guidelines:

  • Charts and Pilot Books: Make sure you have up-to-date charts and pilot books for the areas you plan to sail. These will provide invaluable information on local navigation hazards, tides, and currents.
  • Tides and Currents: Portugal’s Atlantic coast is subject to strong tidal currents, particularly around river estuaries and headlands. Be sure to consult your charts and tide tables to plan your passages accordingly.
  • Fishing Gear: Portuguese waters are home to a thriving fishing industry, and you may encounter fishing gear such as nets, pots, and longlines. Keep a sharp lookout and maintain a safe distance to avoid entanglement.
  • Anchoring: While there are many beautiful anchorages along the Portuguese coast, be aware that some areas have restrictions on anchoring due to environmental concerns or maritime traffic. Always check your pilot book or consult local authorities before dropping anchor.

When visiting marinas and harbors in Portugal, it’s essential to be aware of local customs and etiquette to ensure a pleasant stay. Here are some key points to keep in mind:

  • Reserving a Berth: During the busy summer months, it’s a good idea to reserve a berth in advance, particularly in popular destinations like the Algarve. Contact the marina directly or use an online booking platform to secure your spot.
  • Arrival and Departure: When arriving at a marina, contact the harbor master on VHF channel 9 or 16 for instructions on where to berth. Be prepared to provide your boat’s dimensions, registration, and insurance details. When departing, ensure you’ve settled any outstanding fees and notify the harbor master of your departure.
  • Mooring Lines and Fenders: Have your mooring lines and fenders ready before entering the marina, and be prepared to use a Mediterranean mooring technique (stern-to) in some locations.
  • Noise and Privacy: Be respectful of your neighbors by keeping noise levels down, particularly during the evening and early morning hours. Also, be mindful of privacy when using your cockpit shower or changing clothes on deck.
  • Waste Disposal: Dispose of your waste responsibly by using the marina’s designated waste disposal facilities. Never throw rubbish overboard or leave it on the dock.

Portugal’s climate varies from north to south, with the Atlantic coast experiencing cooler temperatures and more frequent rain, while the Algarve enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild winters. Here’s an overview of the typical sailing conditions in Portugal:

  • Wind: The prevailing wind along the Portuguese coast is the northwesterly “Nortada,” which can reach force 6-7 during the summer months. In the Algarve, the wind is generally lighter and more variable, with sea breezes developing during the afternoon.
  • Sea State: The Atlantic swell can be significant, particularly on the exposed western coast. In contrast, the Algarve’s south coast offers more sheltered sailing conditions, with calmer seas and numerous protected anchorages.
  • Fog: Fog can be a hazard along the Portuguese coast, particularly during the spring and autumn months. Keep a close eye on the weather forecast and be prepared to use your radar or AIS if visibility is reduced.

Portugal’s diverse coastline offers a wealth of sailing destinations to suit all tastes and interests. Here are some must-visit locations to add to your itinerary:

  • Lisbon: Portugal’s vibrant capital city is a must-visit destination, with its historic architecture, lively nightlife, and delicious cuisine. Moor in one of the city’s marinas and explore the charming neighborhoods of Alfama, Bairro Alto, and Belém.
  • Cascais: Just west of Lisbon, Cascais is a picturesque coastal town with a bustling marina, beautiful beaches, and a charming old town. It’s also a great base for exploring the nearby Sintra-Cascais Natural Park.
  • Porto: Famous for its port wine, Porto is a UNESCO World Heritage site with a rich history and stunning architecture. The Douro Marina is an excellent base for exploring the city and the beautiful Douro Valley.
  • Lagos: Located in the western Algarve, Lagos is a popular sailing destination with a modern marina, stunning beaches, and dramatic cliffs. Don’t miss a visit to the nearby Ponta da Piedade, a spectacular rock formation best explored by boat.
  • Madeira and the Azores: For a more adventurous sailing experience, consider a trip to Portugal’s Atlantic islands. Madeira offers lush landscapes, dramatic cliffs, and excellent hiking, while the Azores are a haven for wildlife, with opportunities for whale watching and swimming with dolphins.

Finally, it’s essential to prioritize safety while sailing in Portugal. Here are some tips and emergency contacts to keep in mind:

  • Lifejackets: Ensure that all crew members wear lifejackets while on deck, particularly in rough weather or when sailing at night.
  • Safety Equipment: Regularly check and maintain your boat’s safety equipment, including flares, fire extinguishers, and life raft.
  • Communications: Keep your VHF radio tuned to channel 16 to receive safety information and weather updates from the Portuguese Coast Guard.
  • Emergency Contacts: In case of emergency, dial 112 for the Portuguese emergency services or contact the Coast Guard on VHF channel 16.

With its stunning coastline, rich history, and vibrant culture, Portugal is a fantastic destination for sailors seeking adventure and relaxation. By following the tips and guidelines in this guide, you’ll be well-prepared to navigate local customs and regulations, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable journey. So hoist your sails and set a course for the beautiful waters of Portugal!
