Maracá Ecological Station is located on the 2 islands Ilha: de Maracá do Norte and Ilha de Maracá do Sul. Ilha Jipioca lies about 2 miles S but is inaccessible as it is surrounded by shallow mud banks.
Warning: approach the anchorage from the NNE, giving the N part of the island a berth of at least 4 miles. The W end of the N part of the island are safe.
Anchor: 5.5 m in mud; the anchorage is sheltered from the tidal currents and the bore. Greater depths are to be found farther off the island, but the tidal currents are so strong that an anchorage there would be untenable at springs.
