We will leave Alter do Chao, sailing on the Tapajos River towards the north and we will pass by Piranhas Lake, make our first stop at Cururu beach, we will enjoy Moça beach and make a short stop at the Crocodile Lake which is home to turtles and alligators. We will continue to the Rock tips beach, where we will stop for a swim and also enjoy some snacks, then proceed to the Tapari Lake.

We will continue our adventure by having lunch at the Saulo`s House, which is a reference in relation to regional restaurants due to its structure, organization and, mainly, the taste it offers visitors.

After lunch, we continue seeing the beaches and beauties until Santarem and, suddenly, surprise!!! The motorboat or boat that we are on will be positioned exactly on top of the famous Meeting of the Waters in Santarem. We will appreciate the beauty of the place, observe the city of Santarem, maybe witness porpoises (which are the freshwater dolphins, in pink and gray colors) swimming side by side.

Then, for a few more kilometers ahead of the meeting of the waters, we enter the fascinating Maica Lake, where you will certainly have a peculiar moment in your life, with a chance to observe alligators on the riverside, iguanas climbing trees, birds, monkeys, sloth in addition to the flora of the region that gives an artistic touch to the landscape of the place.

We will return to Alter do Chao, witnessing a beautiful sunset directly on the horizon in front of our vessel.
