Luciano Zinn, local Brazilian (who are cruiser themselve), opened the small marina Ribeira Adventure Club in April 2010 on the other side of Stuart Island, intended for low-budget cruisers. Prices are reported to be 40% cheaper than those in Jacare and facilities basic but adequate. Check Ribeira's site to get the waypoints to arrive there or call Luciano is piloting for you.
