On January the 1st of 1502 a Portuguese squad, commanded by Goncalves, discovered the Guanabara Bay and, judging it to be a great river, and that time being January, he gave it the name of Rio de Janeiro. Guanabara Bay is the largest bay in the world based on volume of water, has several islands such as the Governor's Island, Fundao and Snakes Island. In the west, you will see Rio de Janeiro, and facing east - the municipal district of Niteroi. A city vision is discovered as you leave "Marina da Gloria" by saveiro (schooner), neighborhoods of Botafogo, Flamengo, Urca, Sugar Loaf, Fort Sao Joao, Flagstone Island, Santa Cruz Fortress, Rio-Niteroi Bridge and more.
