Re: Hi from Brazil
The truth is I'm kind of new on this and I don't sail 1/10th of what I wanted to.
Paranaguá bay and north of Paraná is amazing. Beautiful natural scenery but not much of sailing - most of it is inner and dangerously shallow waters. Anyway, Ilha do Cardoso, Canal do Varadouro, Superagüi, Ilha das Peças and Ilha do Mel is one of the best cruising trip you could do.
Beyond Babitonga bay, I haven't been in Santa Catarina in years, but Porto Belo and around is beautiful. Clear, warm waters and very good spots to anchor. Totally different than Paranaguá, SC has an exciting night life, good restaurants... Specially Balneário Camboriú and Florianópolis.
You should join the ABVC. There is always someone happy to give you local tips for a good cruise.
