Spent the day with Fontur tours, boating up the Rio Negra to see the meeting with the Amazon river. Breathtaking view as you see the 2 rivers meet as far as the eye can see. Once in a lifetime experience that our family will never forget.

I had the fortune too see the Encontro das Aguas a few time during my stay in Manaus. I didn't get tired of it and it always looks special and different every other day or every other hour, wether by a boat, a canoe or another way of transport.

Absolutely worth it. So interesting to see how the 2 rivers don't mix. Different speed, acidity, temperatures and colors in the same body of water but completely separated.

I expected to have to go on a journey to see the two rivers meet but you don't even realize that it is literally right outside the harbor of Manaus! You might even be able to see it from the harbor with binoculars. I'm sure if you go on a trip you will pass over where the rivers meet but... More

I know it's pretty amazing but… Don't go out of your way to see it, hopefully you'll be on your way home from a wonderful few days in the Amazon and this will cap it beautifully.

Very nice seeing the two rivers getting together- Rio Negro and Solimões. The waters don't mix, and the colors are different, so we can see it quite well

This is the most important site to visit in Manaus. It is spectacular, and even if you are not a geography expert, you will have to see this. The boat trips are excellent, and we saw dolphins too.

Sandy yellow water and dark chocolate coloured water flow side by side for 4KM. All due to differing temperatures, speed and density. An amazing sight!

This is another amazing sight. Two waters of different colours meeting but never mixing. It's a sight to behold.
