Route from Island of Santiago to Fernando the Noronha
1315 nautical miles , approximate 10 days crossing trough the North hemisphere trade winds , the calm and flat seas of the equator doldrums and the new south hemisphere trade winds .
ernando de Noronha lies in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 220 miles off the Brazilian coast. This archipelago consists of 21 islands, including one main island that is 7 sq. miles, with a population of just over 3,000. Fernando de Noronha has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Since the islands are so small and fragile a maximum of only 460 tourists are allowed at a time. There is also an Environmental Preservation Tax that is more expensive the longer you stay.
This island used to be covered by a large forest but the trees were removed to keep prisoners from building escape rafts. Most of the island is now covered by shrubs. There are two birds native to the island as well as an indigenous rodent that is now considered extinct.
The main attraction at this island is the sea life including dolphins, manta rays, sharks, eels, giant groupers and sea turtles. There are reefs surrounding the islands with indigenous fish found no where else in the world.
The water currents coming from Africa keep the waters sparkling and clear. Visibility is up to 50 meters and the waters are quite warm. This archipelago is also home to major sea bird colonies including the albatross.
