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.
