Duration: 3 Days
Meet at the lobby of the Tropical Hotel at 14:00 hrs. From here you will board and depart towards the Amazon River while we enjoy a welcome drink and listen to the information about route and facilities. After a snack we meet in the leisure room for lectures about Amazon where we will get a good start on understanding Amazon ecology while the vessel takes us up the Amazon. Before dinner we enjoy a caipirinha on board, the national drink of Brazil. After dinner we will explore the river's edge with powerful searchlights spotting caiman, close relatives of crocodile,and possibly night-hawks, snakes, toro-rats, sloth and frogs.
This morning we will wake up in the Janauaca Lake and head out on an early exploration by canoe. Keep your eyes open for birds and Pink River Dolphins. Return to the boat for breakfast followed by a walk in the forest then head out on a walk in the forest where you will visit the inhabitants of the lake who live from manioc plantations, fishing, fruit trees, rubber, Brazil-nut trees, wood and other products. This afternoon you will have the chance to try your hand at piranha fishing before heading back to the boat for dinner then taking one final post-dinner outing to explore the forest in your canoes.
Enjoy your final exploration of the Amazon today , explore the mysterious flooded forest by canoe or walking along the walkways, observing wildlife in the trees and in the water. Enjoy breakfast back on board as the boat makes its way toward the "Meeting of the Waters", a unique spectacle where the bright colours of the Amazon and the dark water of the Negro River flow side-by-side. Finally you will return to Manaus passing by the floating docks, market, old custom house and the dome of the Opera House. You will disembark around 11.30am in Manaus.
