Life on an Amazon Ferry Boat

Ferry boats in the Amazon are a lifeline for the many villages and cities along the Amazon, Rio Negro and many of the other tributaries, both big and small.

Connecting Communities

These boats connect the communities with the outside world, deliver goods and materials as well as people and commerce through the Amazon region, which is about the size of the Lower 48 States in the US.

Many ferry boats run a weekly schedule up and down the rivers and getting from point A-B can be a multi-day or a week long trip.
