Meeting of the waters (Negro and Solimões/Amazonas rivers)
Tuesday to Sunday, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (Manaus Harbor) 5:00 p.m. (Tropical Pier) with lunch (except drinks).
On Mondays, it is possible to depart from Tropical Pier, but transfer to and from Tropical Pier is not included (Extra R$ 50 per person round trip in case you will not stay in Tropical, off course).
The excursion to the meeting of the waters between Rio Negro and Solimões leaves from the floating dock (Manaus floating harbor or Tropical Pier), navigating downstream the Rio Negro and observing at left bank the city of Manaus, some wooden houses - a typical building, the floating gas station, the Main Market and Educandos creek.
We proceed to the meeting of the waters where the muddy waters of the Solimões River run side by side with the dark ones of the Rio Negro without mixing. Having good luck, we can see some species of Boto Tucuxi (Sotalia Fluviatalis) and Boto rosa (Inia Geoffrensis), dolphin frolicking above the water.
After that, the boat take you across the Rio Negro to the Janauary Ecological Park which afford you a wonderful opportunity to canoe amidst creeks and flooded forests with their exotic fauna and flora, including the famous Victoria Regia water lilies.
During summer time, creeks draught with low level of the rivers in the region and the visit Janauary Park is replaced by a walking to the forests.
The tour can depart from Tropical Pier or Manaus Harbor. In case you will stay in Tropical Hotel and the tour departs from Harbor the transfer Tropical-harbor-Tropical is included. Although, the tour departing from Topical does not include transfer, so if you will stay in a different hotel, the transfer will be charged as informed above.
