The two-mile wide channel of São Sebastião is known for its strong winds and currents, with many calling it the capital of Brazilian sailing. Have your camera ready for spectacular photographs as you cross waters known for their international sailing competitions. Enjoy fresh fruit as you feel the fresh sea breezes on your skin. Make your way to Jabaquara Beach while learning about the history of Ilhabela, which was once a popular hideaway for pirates and buccaneers, who used the bays and canals to count their treasure and repair their ships.
