Pororoca Endless Wave ~ Swim With the Dolphins

When I visited the Amazon the guide told me about the Pororoca or Endless Wave that comes each morning up the Amazon river early in the year. I was intrigued by the phenomenon called a tidal bore, so I looked it up on the internet when I got home. I forgot about until recently when I saw a documentary about some surfers who surfed it. The record is 12.5 km (he surfed for 37 minutes!) ~ it is said to be very lucky if you get dolphins swimming along side you.

 

Sorry about the bad photos, they came from the mint.
