“Well worth seeing”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We went on the "Meeting of the Waters" tour on our way to the Amazon EcoPark Lodge which made it a long and slow boat ride, but well worth it.

Although it rained a couple of times (and they pulled down the tarps on each side of the boat to stop us from getting soaked), we still got to see a lot of the activity and scenery along the large wide river.

It was interesting to see the 2 rivers up close and how they never mix (due to the differing Ph acidity levels, different speed of the rivers, water densities, pollution [one by leaves from the rainforest and the other being silt from the mountains] and different temperatures).

We stopped for lunch at a "floating restaurant" which had a surprisingly nice buffet.

Well worth visiting this amazing aspect of nature

“What a meeting!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Close to Manaus,Amazon,Brazil,we can discover an amazing attraction,a natural one,where the Niger River (with its black waters) meets the Solimões River(with its brown ones),for their fisic peculiarities ,temperature,density and velocity,they don"t mix and it's very interesting to see .

“Day tour of the Amazon”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Great day spent touring the Amazon river from Manaus. Enjoyed being able to put hand in the black river and brown Amazon and feel the temperature change between the two. Had a great day.
