Day 1 – Sailing out

In Sao Luis (Maranhao State, northeastern Brazil) I met with the team from SISBIOTA Project to start our 24 hour journey onboard the catamaran Acqua 2 to Parcel Manuel Luis, one of the most remote coral reefs in the South Atlantic.

The waters were murky nearshore as this area is influenced by very large rivers, but we were a long ways off our destination.

After almost 24 hours sailing we arrive at our destination and get ready for our first dive.
