English translation:River Pilots Office
Explanation:
Each of the major rivers in Brazil, including the main tributaries of the Amazon, has an assigned team of vessel captains who are especially experienced with the navigational peculiarities of each river. These river pilots are directly analogous to the harbor pilots at major international seaports, who are ferried out to incoming vessels and who steer those freighters, tankers, and cruise ships into port.
