Guama River Exploration
Experience what life is like along the Guama River and become acquainted with some of northern Brazil's flora and fauna. The Guama River is a branch of the Amazon with myriad channels lined by lush tropical forest. Right after the yacht's clearance, you will be tendered to the "EstacU£o das Docas", a local floating dock. Here, a typical riverboat awaits you for a leisurely trip along the river and through a number of smaller waterways and natural creeks. The cruise will allow you to have a closer look at equatorial vegetation and luckily with bird life. As your boat circles the island, you will see vast plantations and cabbage palm trees, such at the Combu Island which is also known for the small blackberries used in ice cream and for making wine. Boa Vista do Acara: A stop at that Island provides the opportunity to visit with native Caboclo residents, known as Ribeirinhos. Their homes stand on stilts above the river. During a approx 45-minutes of a guided walk, you will venture into the forest to see some of the local flora and fauna, such as Brazil nut and rubber trees, and perhaps a parakeet or macaw. Next, return to the local boat for the ride back to Belem port and your SeaDream yacht.
Notes: We recommend wearing comfortable, lightweight clothing and rubber-soled shoes. Please bring a hat and sunscreen. Tour involves some walking on uneven ground and dirt paths. Getting in and out of the boat makes this tour unsuitable for anyone with limited mobility.
