Why should I start an Amazon cruise in Manaus?
Beginning your cruise in the heart of the Amazon rain forest is an amazing start. Witnessing the confluence of the two biggest rivers on earth, the Amazon River and the Negro River, at the “Meeting of the Waters” is a lifetime journey.
Also enjoy unique activities as cruising on the Negro River, visiting the Anavilhanas archipelago, observing big water lilies, delightful pink dolphins, swimming at white beaches and discovering the magnificent flooded forest.
