Do you have a passion for sailing classic wooden ships? Interested to learn more about Darwin and his work in Brazil? I do and I am, and like Charles Darwin when he boarded the Beagle, I came on board the Tocorime not knowing what to expect but ready for an adventure. Well, I found it, and eleven months later I find myself in the adventure of traveling with the Darwin exposition on board. Talking with Brazilians and international visitors, school children and elders, grizzled fishermen to city officials, people of all sorts are drawn to the Tocorime and the Darwin exposition.
If you plan on visiting, take caution! Tocorime Pamatojari – meaning Adventurous Spirit, is a spirit that has taken ahold of me and is burning fiercely. My hope is that when you stop by for a visit, that spirit will reach out and grab you too, make you want to go out and make a difference. So what´re you waiting for? You are already in Paraty, so come over and listen to the creak of the Amazonian timbers, explore a replica of an age long past, and enjoy the unique Darwin experience that Tocorime has to offer.
