You will see it better from an air plane, but it is also interesting to watch from a boat. You can follow this for a long distance

In Manaus you can get other tours. You can probably get them in other ports as well. When I was there, I did not have any time to look for other excursions, otherwise I would taken some private tours. Good luck
