See the black, coffee-colored waters of the Rio Negro and the milky brown, sentiment-filled waters of Rio Solimões on a full-day excursion to the meeting of the waters. Spend a day taking in the beauty and wonder of the natural area surrounding Amazonas.
What to Expect
See one of the most beautiful places on earth in the Amazonas as you take a full-day tour to the meeting of the waters.
The excursion to the meeting of the waters between Rio Negro and Solimões leaves from the floating dock, navigating downstream the Rio Negro. On the left bank you will observe the city of Manaus, which has many typical wooden houses, a floating gas station, the Main Market and Educandos creek.
Here you will proceed to the meeting of the waters where the muddy waters of the Rio Solimões run side by side with the dark ones of the Rio Negro, all without mixing. With some luck, you can see some species of Boto Tucuxi (Sotalia Fluviatalis) and Boto rosa (Inia Geoffrensis): dolphins frolicking through the water.
After that, the boat will take you across the Rio Negro to the Janauary Ecological Park, which affords you with a wonderful opportunity to canoe amidst creeks and flooded forests with their exotic fauna and flora, including the famous Victoria Regia water lilies.
In summer time, creeks disappear because of the low level of the rivers, so instead of going to Janauary Park you will visit Terra Nova island where you will see cocoa plantations and natives extracting latex from trees.
