Manaus: Piranha Fishing and Alligator Watch Evening Tour

1. Manaus: Piranha Fishing and Alligator Watch Evening Tour

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.

It’s amazing experience to piranha fishing , tour guide is full experience and full of patience . it’s not only piranha and crocodile , there have belonging beautiful star night and firefly surrounding beside the tree, if you lucky enough you can see the owl is standing on the tree . I’m so satisfied with half day alligator tour, highly recommended !

Very adventurous but also very safe. I was actually the only one on this experience and had a private experience pretty much, I appreciate the company not cancelling it. Beautiful trip down a side tributary of the amazon, caught a couple pirahnas, and got to see gators up close and personal.

They were picked up from the hotel as described, driven to the port and from there we went with 2 friendly gentlemen and a small passenger boat to the Amazon region. Language only Portuguese, but no problem for this activity. Great and exciting experience to see this area with your own eyes

Perfectly organized tour with professional Piranha fisherman and alligator hunter in tow who catches them with bare hands (obviously alligator cubs)

Unbelievable - 100% a must do! You may even see the dolphins!!!! (WE DID!)
