Have you tried contacting the Brazilian consulate or the state of Pernambuco tourism office directly? The latter should have the answer at their fingertips.
It seems that the tax for head is now R$ 45,60. Besides the additional 130 reais for 10 days (if that value was not also increased in 5.5%) it seems that you have to pay also a tax for anchoring, for day. For a small 5m boat is R$ 45,60. I imagine that a cruising boat will pay several times more.

I guess that instead of ruling the environmental impact with sensible demands (like paid fixed buoys, mandatory black water tanks, restricted number of cruising boats) they are just running cruising boats out with very expensive prices while they continue to allow mass tourism in cruise ships (600 persons allowed for boat).
