The arrival of the group in Manaus varies according to the cities of origin of the fishermen.
Manaus has an international airport that serves as the base for numerous flights to Brazil and to the world. The arrival time in Manaus should be adjusted with the group leader so that the next morning (Friday) everybody is ready for boarding in a chartered flight at 6am at the Aerodrome / Eduardinho de Manaus.

1st Day (Friday): Presentation of the group at the Aerodrome / Eduardinho de Manaus early in the morning (currently all ready at 6am) to board Manaus / SIRN (duration of two hours and a half).

The boat hotel goes to SIRN to be cleaned and restocked for the group the next day.
