ITINERARY / ALQUIMISTA’s boat
Morning and afternoon trips, departing at 8:30 am and 1:00 pm, respectively, with a 3-hour duration. Departing from Porto Santo Antonio, on the main island (Fernando de Noronha), through MAR DE DENTRO (APA AND PARNAMAR), we travel around the archipelago’s secondary islands (Rasa, São José, Sela Gineta, do Meio and Rata islands). Then, we sail towards Ponta da Sapata, where you can sight the map of Brazil and a dolphin’s figure, carved in the rocks, among other carved images your imagination might glimpse. During the trip, we travel along the Cachorro, Meio, Conceição, Boldró, Americano, Bode, Quixabinha, Cacimba do Padre (Morro Dois Irmãos), Baía dos Porcos, Praia do Sancho beaches, and the fantastic Baía dos Golfinhos beach, where the dolphins rest after a late-night hunting trip. During the return trip, we stop for a swim at Praia do Sancho, considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. At the end of the trip, if we are lucky, we can hear the “roaring of the lion” at Forte dos Remédios.

Trail walking is recommended for those who love walking. All routes include strategic stops for resting or/and diving. Tips: - Avoid carrying excessive weight. During the walk, the excessive weight could bother you very much. - Follow the main trail and don’t take shortcuts. Always leave the flora and fauna undisturbed, in the same way it was before your arrival. - All litter must be bagged and taken to the appropriate site. If possible, bring back the litter left behind by less considerate people. Don’t leave cans, bottles and plastic containers behind. - Try to wear comfortable clothes, more suitable for the activity. - Upon your arrival, bear in mind that: You are the visitor. Try to befriend the locals and respect their customs. They can give you good tips about places to visit, eat, and about something very important: about what you should not do. It is advisable to ask people’s permission before taking their pictures. Fernando de Noronha is one of the best places in Brazil to practice water sports, and also offers the best surfing and body boarding conditions, with waves that attract the greatest surfers in the whole world, every year. Follow a trail with stunning views, get to know the native fauna and flora, learn about the local history, dive into crystal clear waters, and get a closer look at one of the places where Nature is still alive and untouched.
