Amazonas: Boat Ride with a Local Amazonian

1. Amazonas: Boat Ride with a Local Amazonian

See over a hundred houses floating on a lake, built on logs of a local tree that lasts for over 50 years in the water. Visit a "Pirarucu" fish farm, navigate through the flooded forest, known as "Igapó" and discover the phenomenon of two rivers meeting together. Enjoy beautiful scenery, while passing by boat at the same level of the canopy of some trees, with rivers reaching over 15 meters high. Visit a "Pirarucu" fish farm of the largest fish, reaching over two meters long and as heavy 250 kilos. Play with these river monsters with a fishing rod (without hook, so you don't harm them) and have fun, while feeling the power of their bite. Marvel at one of the most impressive and intriguing world phenomenons, when two rivers, so different in color, velocity, temperature and density run side by side without mixing their waters. Be invited to touch the waters, while passing from one river to the other and feel the clear difference of temperature. Return to your hotel after this great experience, with unforgettable memories.

Wilton is a great guide and has her own little boat. He knows and loves his city and the Amazon region. The tour with him is much better than with organized large groups. He knows people everywhere and shows the peculiarities. He is a professional, totally trustworthy guide. He also speaks English, I can't judge how well, because we spoke Portuguese.

It was a great trip. Very knowledgeable and experienced guides. Made me feel at home in Manaus.
