Just had the schoolboys atlas out. Tubarao and Vitoria are several hundred miles apart. Tubarao is about 150 miles north of Porto Alegre. Vitoria is about 150-200miles north of Rio.
Maybe the second mates can confirm?

That's a different Tubarao, Les (in the state of Santa Catarina, I just found out). I think it is called that because of being the birth place of potatoes.

Tubarão means shark.

There is one port in the city of Vitória. Tubarão is a pier at short distance of the city, especially for loading ore. It belongs to the firm Vale (Formerly Vale do Rio Doce).

There is a city in the southeren Brazilian state of Santa Catarina named Tubarão.

Felix is right.
Gentleman's, Tubarão Port come from long time ago at place calling "Ponta do Tubarão" it means sharks point's, in that place they choose to built a ocean deep water port, its not a city like Tubarão - so far from sea in Santa Catarina State.
Vitória is one of main ports for iron ore in the world, they built Tubarão port only for iron ore in 60's, because CVRD wants supply in large scale iron ore to Japan and Europe.
