What to Expect
A tour combining piranha fishing and alligator spotting is a good option for those who want to enjoy an exciting and authentic Amazon experience. This adventure begins at the river terminal in Manaus, where you will board the boat bound for the coast of Iranduba. On the journey you will explore more of Manaus including the palafitas (stilt houses), the landscape, the local fishermen, and the ribeirinhos (native people).
Upon arrival in Iranduba, you will look for a good place to go piranha fishing. The Solimões River is much richer in fish that the Rio Negro and you are likely to catch various types of catfish. Here you can enjoy fishing with a rod made of bamboo and learn how the native Caboclos people fish.
When it starts to get dark, you will head off in search of alligator. The naturalist guide will do his best to capture an alligator with his bare hands so you can take a close look at the fascinating animal. After providing information about the alligator, the instructor will then return the animal back to its natural habitat.
