Meeting of the Waters Tour Description:
Discover the Rio Negro and the Amazon region by boat on this Half Day City Cruise to the Meeting of the Waters tour from Manaus. After pickup from your Manaus hotel, your cruise begins as you float past the Port of Manaus.
Observe typical Amazon boats filled with goods to be delivered to the local market, and admire gorgeous views of the city from the water. Travel along the river, making your way to the meeting point of the Negro and Amazon rivers, known as the Meeting of the Waters.
Stop briefly at this spot to witness this amazing natural sight, where the two distinct rivers flow side-by-side. The contrasting colors of the rivers – black and brown – do not mix for more than 3 miles (5 km).
Continue along the Rio Negro to January Ecological Park, located about 45 minutes by boat from Manaus. See the famous Amazon water plant Victoria Regia, and then enjoy lunch at a floating restaurant.
After lunch, explore even more of the Rio Negro on a motorized canoe ride along the small creeks of the river. Ride through a maze of submerged trees, vines, and flowers with your knowledgeable guide before hopping back on your boat for the return trip to Manaus.
