There is sort of a Bermuda Triangle legend associated with the location. Spectacular phenomenon to actually witness. It would be better to do the tour in a smaller vessel so you can touch the waters to feel the difference .

Very nice experience. Do dip your hand on one river and when the boat crosses over you will see the temperature difference!

Incredible that these two rivers do not mix for 9 km. Aside from the colour, the temperature, depth and speed of the water is different in each river. Truly and interesting phenomenon to witness.

Part of the eight days that I spent on a medical mission boat in the Amazon region was on the Rio Negro. This was a most interesting stretch of water. The people we cared for were very gracious and welcoming and while we cared for some of their immediate medical needs, we learned a great deal about the culture, customs,... More

It is amazing to watch the gradual merging of the waters of the two rivers. This experience may be worth the entire trip to Amazonas.

As the pitch-black waters of the Rio Negro and the brownish clear waters of the faster Solimões rivers meet, the Amazon river is born. Being amidst the doubly colored cradle of the greatest river in the world is a beautiful and humbling experience.

The point in which the two rivers meet and the twirl they make looks like a dance, it is truly amazing. I went with a very dedicated guide who made us put our hands in the water with our eyes closed so we could feel the water temperature change as the boat zigzagged from one to the other. The experience... More

I had always heard about it, but seeing it was incredible. We went through that area quickly, so I almost missed it. A cool experience!

This is how I described this place. The Black river and the Solimoes meet and don't mix for quite a distance, A real amazing site. I visited back in 2005, a small tour of the river and some jungle experience. Must GO !
