Silversea Luxury Cruises A Rio Curua Una

Rio Curua Una

A large open flood plain extends from Río Curuá-Una behind riverside trees. Nearby are hills which are an unusual feature this close to the Amazon. Exploring in Zodiacs allows us to approach floating vegetation to see how these remarkable plants survive without attaching to the riverbed. We can get close to birds from the convenience of the boats. Watch as the birds seek insects amongst the plants or aquatic life below the water surface. Water buffalo have been added to cattle as sources of red meat for local consumption. View more

Originating in Asia the water buffalos are well-adapted to wet conditions and are faster at putting on weight than cattle. They can damage the wetlands so they still must be moved to higher ground during the wettest times of the year. If favorable conditions allow, we will offer an outing after sunset. The ‘orchestra of the night’ created by insects, frogs and other wildlife is an experience on its own. Perhaps an owl or a pottoo will appear, as they hunt for large insects, frogs, and small birds and mammals. We will look for caimans as they search for prey near banks or floating vegetation. We spot the eye shine— the red reflection from their eyes in the beams of light. From the eyes we can then focus in on the floating caimans themselves. Two types of these relatives of the crocodile and alligator are found in the Amazon. The Black Caiman is smaller than the Spectacled Caiman which is named after a white ring around each eye and has nothing to do with the reflective eye shine.

Zodiac Cruise with Silversea Expedition team

This large open area near some hills is a rather unusual feature along the Amazon. We will do an afternoon outing in the floodplain just behind the river mouth, where we will find a lot of floating plants. On some of those floating islands of vegetation we will find various birds which are looking for food here.

In case of favorable conditions we attempt to offer another outing after sunset here. Beside that we may find some caimans, the "Orchestra of the Night" created by insects, frogs and other inhabitants of the area will be an experience on its own.
