Separating Copacabana and Ipanema is a point I think is called Arpoador (Harpooneer).  From that point, this is looking northeast toward the entrance to the harbor.

This small boat is passing between the point and Ilha Rasa.  It appears to have a large fish over the portside.

Here, as seen from the east end of Ipanema and looking between Ilhas Cagarras and Palmas is another view of the offshore rig.  I don’t see it identified on AIS.

xHere is one of many dozens on vessels seen from the Rio-Niteroi Bridge and looking north beyond Guanabara Bay toward the Serra dos Orgoas.

Among these vessels, I did spot a Candies and a Seacor boat, not shown here.

I’ve tried unsuccessfully to identify on non-OSV 1950s style passenger/cargo vessel, gray and in front and center.  Anyone know?  [Update:  it’s called Teknik Perdana, 1974, hydrographic research vessel.  see comment.]
