Summary of The Day: After we pick you up from your hotel, we'll head over to the dock to meet the crew and break the ice with a refreshing drink. Your captain will then steer the boat into the river towards the Meeting of the Waters, a spectacular natural phenomenon at the confluence of two very different rivers: the opaque Rio Negro and the cafe-au-lait Solimões, whose waters don't mix yet together form the mighty Amazon River. Next we'll visit Lake January to see the legendary floating houses that rise with the floodwaters.
We'll visit a local craft fair, followed by a canoe ride through the flooded forest. There you will see many wild animals: monkeys, sloths, tropical birds, water lilies ... even anacondas. Experience a local tradition as we fish for piranhas!
More thrills await us on the night tour, as we capture a black caiman using flashlights. After gaining a better understanding of, and appreciation for, this incredible Amazon predator we will return it to its natural habitat.
We will conclude Day 1 with dinner and a well-earned rest, staying overnight on the boat.
