Escola de Navegação


Terra Incógnita® develops navigation courses in order that all students can be able to practice their nautical activities, safely.  

Terra Incógnita® TI is certificated by the Instituto Portuário e dos Transportes Maritimos (IPTM), from who it has been assigned as an official training entity.

Our Trainers

Ours trainers are highly qualified, with a wide experience in navigation. All trainers, beyond the qualifications requested by IPTM, have a large number of navigation miles, including boat transports, a large number of national and international regattas, and had the experience of several real hazardous situations at sea. Therefore they have the required knowledge and cold blood to get over them! Most of the trainers, had previously a full and specific training of all themes, because of their merchant marine background.
