The City of São Sebastião is preparing to launch a public-private partnership to build a home port structure to receive cruise ships soon. São Sebastião also offers top quality ship agents making it the ideal port as an option for a cruise ship stop destination using the existing port infrastructure. The city offers a full range of tourist services to support a turnaround operation for guests and crew members. São Sebastião and the entire North Shore region which includes other three cities, Ilhabela, Caraguatatuba and Ubatuba, constitute one of the most beautiful regions in the country with an extensive array of tourist attractions. The home port project will include check in facilities, waiting lounge area, luggage handing systems, buses and vehicles parking area and port security.
