About
Get to know all the points of the famous Rio Negro (Black River) on board a safe and comfortable speed boat. On a boat trip across the Negro River towards the floating platform for interaction with the porpoises, you will have the opportunity to swim with these docile animals and observe them when fed by a native. The trip continues to an indigenous community to participate in a presentation ritual and learn a little bit about their culture. Then, enjoy a tasty regional lunch and watch the phenomenal Meeting of the Waters!

Additional information

  • Infants must sit on laps

  • Porpoises are sensitive animals and aiming at the safety of visitors and the welfare of the animals, some care is necessary:
  • Do not feed them;
  • Do not scream;
  • Do not intentionally touch them;
  • Do not use sunscreen, repellent, body cream or oil. When in contact with certain products, porpoises have their eyes and smell attacked.
  • In the period of ebb there is a phenomenon in the rivers called Piracema (fish migratory movement) which influences, in some cases, the porpoises to follow a shoal that is passing through, and for that reason does not appear as usual in the lakes where visitors are taken for this interaction; that is, there are possibilities of not interacting with these animals, a fact that we can only conclude on the spot on the day of the tour.
  • Regardless of weather conditions, Tours will take place normally. The above schedules may change due to weather, access, or other factors that the company believes may interfere with the safety or well-being of passengers.
  • Wear light clothes; bring a towel and swimwear. Bring sunscreen and insect repellent (remember the warning regarding contact with animals)
  • In the period of the ebb (September to December) according to the level of the rivers, the visit to the water lilies lake is likely to be suspended, being replaced by a walk in the jungle glimpsing species of plants of the Amazon.
  • We suggest you taking cash in local currency in case of personal expenses with handicrafts and consumption at the bar
  • Most travellers can participate
  • Attention: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no interaction with the porpoises in the water for an indefinite period.
