The boat ride was fun and it was very interesting to see something as simple as two rivers running into each other. You could clearly see the differences between the rivers due to the colors. It was just really cool to see.

As part of a cruise ship excursion, we sailed to the wedding of the waters and up through tributaries of the Amazon. Spotted iguanas, monkeys, sloths...even went piranha fishing! Just an amazing view into daily life in the Amazon.

In Manaus you can get other tours. You can probably get them in other ports as well. When I was there, I did not have any time to look for other excursions, otherwise I would taken some private tours. Good luck
