Cruise down the Rio Negro to view the 'Meeting of the Waters', where the black Rio Negro and the muddy brown Amazon converge, on this full-day excursion from Manaus. This stretch of water, where the two differently colored rivers flow separately for a few miles, makes for spectacular photographs. Eat lunch at a floating restaurant and stop to see the Victoria regia water plant at an ecological park.
  • 8-hour cruise on the Rio Negro from Manaus
  • Experience the Amazon Rainforest and see the Meeting of the Waters, where the Rio Negro joins the Amazon River
  • Admire panoramic views of Manaus from the boat
  • Visit January Ecological Park, where you'll see the native Amazon flower, Victoria regia
  • Lunch and hotel pickup and drop-off included
Following pickup from your hotel in Manaus, transfer to a boat for your day on the river.
Glide out of the Port of Manaus, heading toward the convergence of the Rio Negro and the Amazon. As you leave the port behind you, observe the traditional riverboats bearing local goods from upriver, bound for Manaus' markets. Admire views of this city on the river from your watery vantage point.
When you reach the 'Meeting of the Waters', observe how the dark water of the Rio Negro and the muddy water of the Amazon refuse to mix and instead flow alongside each other for more than 3 miles (5km).
Continue up the Rio Negro to January Ecological Park, home to the Victoria regia, the famous Amazon water plant. Stop at a floating restaurant for a traditional Brazilian lunch.

Nice but you spend most of the time riding on a boat. The meal was great but everything was in Portuguese or Spanish not English so I don't know what was being said other than what the guide would come tell me (which would be a few words) but hours of telling everyone else things in their language

The whole experience is very good. The guide is very knowledgable. We are the only 2 people in our tour that don't speak portuguese. The tour guide has no problem use English to explain the tour to us. The boat is safe and clean and comfortable don't expect A/C. We have seen lot of places and had a chance to motor boat into the flooded florest. There is not much animal to see besides birds and Monkey and a small gator. Its understandable because we are not far deep into the jungle. The lunch is average, it eatable but don't expect too much as they are prepared by the local village people. All in all, its a taste of Amazon in a day comfortably without paying too much and too hard core.

This is a great tour if you only have time for one day on the rivers. You have ample time to sense the immensity of the river systems and the natural beauty of the river because we tour the Januari ecological park adjacent to the Amazon. The staff was very knowledgeable. Great trip for seniors.
