it's an amazing...that's the best part of Manaus. There're a lot of companies that offers the cruises.. They picked up around 8 am from the hotel to be at the port around 9:30 am , It went through river, cross to amazonas river, and then visit some part of amazonas (see old trees, etc) and lunch & shots of caipirinhas...

It is a must see----travel to Manaus just to see this. Most cruises will include this visit. There are short trips to it if time is critical.

The confluence of the Rio Negro and The Rio Solomoes is a natural Phenomenon that you cannot miss. Take a guided trip in a smaller speed boat and trail your hand through the meeting points of the two rivers to feel the temperature difference. and enjoy the cool respite from the oven like temperatures of Manaus.

I kept seeing comments posted about not going to the docks in the center of town. Yesterday my friend and me walked to the docks from our hotel in the center of town (8 minutes) saw a small boat, bargained for 40 Reals, and within 20 min. were at the meeting of the waters. There were other small boats willing... More

We did this on the way back from Tariri Lodge and glad we did. Once you get to the port, it really only took about half an hour to drive out on the boat, see the Meeting of the Waters and come back. Worth visiting because it's pretty unique - and there's not a whole lot else to do in... More

While in Manaus, we made an effort to see the meeting of the waters. It was worth it! Before we went, we learned that to get there may be a problem. Many chose the option of going with a tour. The problem is that most of the tours take 6 hours or so. We only had a few hours and... More

Manaus is far away, and i always read and learned about this. But to go and actually see the dolphins around the boat, put your hand in the water, feel the moist in the air was fantastic. Take a boat at CEASA for 50 reais per person, in two hours he will take you to the meeting of the waters,... More

Incredible! The biggest river of the world (Amazonas) is formed by other 2 rivers: Solimoes, with brown and hot waters and Negro with dark and cold waters. They do not mix until miles together and form a very beautiful scenario. You can feel the different temperatures clearly if you put your hands to the water!
