Dias' ship was piloted by Pêro de Alenquer. A second caravel, the São Pantaleão, was commanded by João Infante and piloted by Álvaro Martins. Dias' brother Pêro Dias was the captain of the square-rigged support ship with João de Santiago as pilot.
The expedition sailed south along the West coast of Africa.
The discovery of the passage around southern Africa was significant because, for the first time, Europeans realized they could trade directly with India and the other parts of Asia.
Bartolomeu Dias originally named the Cape of Good Hope the "Cape of Storms" . It was later renamed the Cape of Good Hope because it represented the opening of a route to the east.
