Amazon by Motor Yacht

 

Louise’s Video on our trip 

We boarded the motor yacht in Manaus.   Manaus, on the banks of the Negro River in northwestern Brazil, is the capital of the vast state of Amazonas. It’s a major departure point for the surrounding Amazon Rainforest. Just east of the city, the dark Negro River converges with the brown, muddy Solimões River resulting in a striking visual phenomenon called the “Meeting of the Waters.” The combined tributaries form the Amazon River. We boarded the Tucano

it was a great boat with fine rooms below with private showers

With great fine dinning

During the early orange before breakfast  we would go kayaking from 6 Am to 8 Am
