View From Above: Brazil's Amazon By Floatplane

Float Plane

We at Rainforest Cruises have often wondered why you are given life jackets on a plane and not parachutes? It's not as if you are given a parachute on any of our Amazon cruise ships (despite their commitment to comprehensive health and safety)!

However, with a new product we are offering in Manaus - floatplane tours of 30 minutes to three hours' duration -  the reasoning is easier to see.

If you are heading to Brazil on your Amazon Rainforest adventure, Manaus is your likely starting point. Before or after your cruise, be sure not to miss out on a floatplane tour which is the only way to get a bird’s-eye view of the sheer scale and splendor of this newly voted natural wonder of the world. And, of course, being a floatplane, there is the chance to land on the wide Amazon tributaries, and see the flora and fauna up close. Highlights include: 

Victoria Water Lilies

Victoria Water Lilies

- Crossing the edges of the Negro River and heading to the flooded forest area where, season permitting, you will see the famous giant water lilies

- Witnessing the spectacular and iconic Meeting of the Waters, where the light and dark waters of the Solimões and Negro Rivers collide. From on high is the best way to appreciate this remarkable phenomenon.

- Overflying the Anavilhanas, one of the biggest riverine archipelagos on the planet, where the Rio Negro transforms into a great labyrinth of tree-covered islands and inviting beaches.

Swimming with Prink River Dolphins
