Nice and interesting to see, but after 5 mins time to continue your trip. The temparature and color difference is very noticeable. We did this as as part of a tour with Amazon Eco Adventures and they use a speedboat, so you can dip your legs in the water to feel the difference.

Went on a speed boat from Manaus. Yes the waters are different colours and do meet but the river is busy and no very beautiful here and the traffic to get to the dock was terrible. On balance I would not bother again.

It is certainly worth seeing but once you've seen it you're ready to move on! Go if you get the chance.

Don't miss this ... where the Rio Negro and the Solimoes Rivers merge but do not mix for 6km due to their respective densities, speed and temperature, finally being forced to mix when they encounter whitewater. Put your hand in the water to feel the temperature difference as you cross between the rivers. Unique experience, highly recommended!

A must do. It is one of the most incredible natural phenomena i have ever seen!!! Where the 2 rivers meet one truly gets some understanding of the scale and sheer size of the Amazonian River.

beautiful day trip, our boat had plenty of drinks and we stopped for a fantastic lunch on the way back, the day was jam packed with seeing animals, meeting indigenous people and even dancing. if you only do one trip in the Amazon, this should be it.

The meeting of the waters is a strange and facisnating thing. Two waters which can not get mixed make your imagination go far! The answer is given from the guide. It has something to do with the density, velocity and acidity levels (for better information go on tour! They will explain you everything). If you're on Manaus you should for... More
