We took a boat ride out to see where the two rivers meet from Manaus in Brazil. It's a must see. The Amazon River is a sandy colour due to the silt and the Rio negro is black. The two definitely don't mix. We took a smaller boat ride up one of the estuaries afterwards to see the giant lily... More

The meeting of the two rivers is just an amazing site not to be missed. It is an incredible experience to ride on the Amazon river!

We found the "Meeting of the Waters" to be fascinating. This is where the Negro and Amazon Rivers meet. They travel side by side as two separate rivers for several miles before combining. This is a great spot to observe the Pink Dolphins because this converging point is a good source of where they find their food supply. If you... More

It goes against everything you think should happen when these two rivers meet, but perfectly side by side for MILES before any mixing!

Absolutely amazing, words can't describe how fantastic it is to experience the meeting of the waters. You just have to go yourself. The waters don't mix, one side is brown and the other black and there is this definite line, with slight swirls but they don't mix. It is just amazing. Well worth visiting

When people reach this place they should be ready for the unexpected. It is not just the colors of the water or the smell, or the silence. ... It is nature in its most pure and wild way! It is amazing!

This visit was part of a very nice day trip in Rio Negro waters... It is a natural wonder for everyone to see: how 2 rivers that seem like two oceans meet together and how the waters take time to mix... Unbelievable!!! It is another Manaus "Must see"!!

There are (allegedly) 17 tributaries of the Amazon, and those which come from the mountains carry water which is black and which doesn't easily mix with the muddy waters of the Amazon itself (different acidity, different temperatures, and different density). An interesting sight, best seen from a boat and in an organised group (as that's much cheaper than trying to... More

If you are in Manaus you should book an adventure in the Rio Negro to watch its waters meet the Solimões river. Their chemical differences make their waters difficult to mix, so you can enjoy the view of both waters having trouble getting along. You can visit other places while on the river, some agencies will pick you up in... More
