Ribeira Adventure Club (Sao Paulo Brazil)
Although the channel leading up to this mini-marina is not sufficiently ...
It is best to proceed up the river to Jacare, but beware of the many shoals and strong currents. It is advisable not to use a "danforth" type anchor as it can more easily be tripped when the tide turns. Beware of the unlit fishing nets strung across the river.
At Jacare, yachts can anchor in front of the "yacht club". Although this is no longer a "club", dinghies can be left here during the week.
Jacare Yacht Village (or Marina Jacare Village) have much-improved facilities for cruising yachts. You can independently anchor close to the marina or tie up to one of their mooring buoys or docks.
What was once a fishing village has now become a busy resort, popular with the Brazilian jet-set and notorious for its all-night music. Everywhere in Jacare noise can be a problem.
40 berth marina with water and electricity - inner docks are shallow,
outer docks depth 4.5m. Clean showers, laundry, wifi, small swimming

Tout est dit ci-dessus, sauf que l'électricité n'est pas facturée en plus.
La police fédérale est dans un bâtiment "proche" de Jacaré (taxi...), les douanes et affaires maritimes sont au port de Cabedello (encore taxi, le même...) mais on peut revenir en train, folklorique, à faire absolument.
On peut aussi aller en train jusqu'à Joao Pessoa.
Bien le bonjour à Philippe et Francis qui vous aideront dans tous vos besoins.
