Manatees are loose now, the probability of seeing them being 75% at low tide (the other 25% occur when they go at the source of the river to drink fresh water). The Boat rides are done only at low tide.
Manatee and marine Turtles boat Tour
In the Potiguara village, with the pajé Antonio
Located 92 km from João Pessoa, Baia da Traição received its name because when the Portuguese arrived, the Potiguaras attracted them to the beach with signs of friendship, to later kill and eat them.
Those who stayed on the boat watched this without being able to do anything. The Indians practiced exo-cannibalism, eating enemies to appropriate their strength.
Until the appearance of the Portuguese in 1500, the Potiguara population reached + -90,000 people. In the 16th and 17th centuries, the natives resisted the Portuguese colonization project. They allied themselves with the French, and then with the Dutch. After the Dutch undone in 1654, the Potiguaras were decimated.
The Potiguaras (Tupi term meaning shrimp eaters) had Tupi Guarani as their language, living on the coast of Paraíba, Rio Grande do Norte, Ceará and Maranhão. The survivors remained on the North Coast of Paraíba between the Camaratuba and Mamanguape rivers.
