House boat trip

Day 1) Pick up from your hotel at 8:00am to go to Ceasa Port where you will get to see the Amazon freshwater fish market. Then we will take our houseboat to the famous ‘Meeting of the Waters’ where the Rio Negro and the Solimôes meet to form the Amazon River, where you will have an opportunity to take photos and hear an explanation of the phenomenon.

We continue upriver to the Janauary Ecological Park, where we will take a catwalk through the jungle to see the famous giant water lilies, take photos and hear about the ecology. We will see one of the biggest trees in the rainforest, the Samaura, before returning to the houseboat for lunch. After lunch we will go piranha fishing and then return to the houseboat to start moving upriver to Cachoeiro do Castanha village, where we will stay overnight.

On the way upriver, you can enjoy a beautiful sunset dinner. After dinner we will go out for a nocturnal canoe ride to explore the area and spot nocturnal wildlife. Maybe a snake, or another animal - whatever nature has in store for us. We will return to spend the night on the houseboat.

Day 2) At 5:30am the houseboat will start to move upriver to Jaraqui, which is one of the tributaries of the Rio Negro. On the way, you will have a great opportunity to witness a spectacular sunrise, enjoy breakfast and then go on a jungle trek for about 3 to 4 hours with an explanation of medicinal plants, survival techniques and fauna and flora.

We will return to the houseboat and start moving upriver to the Anavilhanas Archipelago, having lunch on the way. After arriving at the Three Mouths we will go along the island to explore by motorised canoe . We can spot monkeys, macaws, toucans, and parrots too. We will return for dinner, then at night go caiman spotting before returning to spend the night on the houseboat.

Day 3) Before breakfast, we will go to explore to see more macaws and toucans. After breakfast we will canoe around the island to spot wildlife, then back for lunch. After lunch, we will move downriver to Acajatuba Lake where you will swim with the pink dolphins, then it’s back to the houseboat for dinner and to spend the night.

Day 4) After breakfast we will visit one of the Amazon tributaries by motorised canoe to spot wildlife; monkeys, birds, and sloths. It’s back to the houseboat for lunch, and then we go downriver to Tatuzinho village where you will have the opportunity to see members of the Barrasana tribe perform rituals for about 40 minutes and you will be able to dance with them. We then go back to the houseboat and start our return to Manaus to arrive at about 5:00pm
