The river negro and the river solimões are so different (temperature, ph and color) before they form the amazonas river that they don't mix and stay like together without mixing for more than 10 km....definitely worth to see!

Even you are not so forest friend, if you are at Amazonia, you must take a boat and you have to go to see it. It is very interesting to see and, mainly, to understand how the Amazonia River flows and how it begins.

I went on a day trip from Manaus harbour. The boat was called Hellen Soares II. It was modern, reasonable confortable and had a toilet. It was a full day excursion, which also included seeing the dolphins and an Indian tribe. The meeting of the waters is very unusual and worth seeing

It's hard to get a good photo of this, but it was interesting to learn about the waters. Dip your hand in as they pass through the waters feel the difference!

Just o interesting to see this natural phenomena, we went by a small river boat, and got to feed an enormous river fish from a long pole. We also had a lovely meal on a floating pontoon.

We took a speed boat with amazongerotours.com It was well worth visiting the meeting of the waters. There is a definite line showing the 2 rivers flowing next to each other. They do not mix due to a different density and composition plus temperature.

A must see as you can distinctly see the difference in color between the Amazon which is brown with sediments and the Rio Negro which has clear water. We saw the place and continued further in our canoe to see caimans.

Apparently the difference in alkalinity and acidity accounts for the clear demarcation of the muddy water and the acidic black water of the Rio Negro. The nice thing about the Rio Negro is that the level of acidity stops mosquitoes from living and breeding in it - so insect repellents are not necessary.

Definitely worth getting in a boat and seeing. You can distinctly see the merging of the rivers and feel the temperature difference of both bodies of waters. If lucky, may even see some pink dolphins swimming in the rivers. This is the main attraction in Manaus.
