Caribbean Current

The Caribbean Current is a warm water current that flows into the Caribbean Sea from the east along the coast of South America. The current results from the flow of the Atlantic South Equatorial Current as it flows north along the coast of Brazil.

As the current turns north through the Yucatan Channel, it is renamed the Yucatan Current.
