Floating Dock, Manaus

2.1
The geography of the Amazonian region is rife with obstacles, so many locals travel between cities by boat. Floating docks are a common stopping point for supplies and connections to cities for these local transport boats, and Floating Dock is one of these docks with access to Manaus. Although, there are some cafes and some shopping nearby, its value is as a slice of life experience for the visitor. Here, you will see local fisherman stocking and unloading, cruise ships taking a breather, and transport boats almost completely covering the surface of the water. The hustle and bustle harkens docks of old and you may recall stories about of jungle stopping points from Conrad, or Marquez.

On the shore you'll see colonial architecture being reclaimed by nature with vines protruding from windows and the a pastel paint taking on a magical air. These are a popular image for photographs and  a truly original moment to send the folks back home. Plan my trip to Manaus with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • The port of Manaus is a Brazilian river port located on the West coast of the Black River in the Centre of the city of Manaus. Is the world's largest floating Harbour. Meets the States of Amazonas, Roraima, Rondônia, Acre and North areas of Mato Grosso. Located on the left bank of the Rio Negro, 13 km distant from the confluence with the rio Solimões, the port of Manaus is the main entrance to the State of Amazonas.

  • Needs a lot of reform to be a pleasant place. A jumble of boats without much organization. I don't recommend the tour.

  • The port is floating, soon it is possible to use it throughout the year. There is a place where you can observe the level of all the floods of the rio negro.
