Amazon cruise in Ecuador on board the Manatee Explorer
The vibrant and plentiful animal and plant life found in the Amazon Jungle is fed by the rivers and lagoons that crisscross its vast landscape. So what better way to get to know the forest and its inhabitants than an Amazon cruise along Napo River, a tributary of the colossal Amazon River.
Manatee Amazon Explorer or Anakonda river cruise
Beginning near the jungle city of Coca, an Amazon cruise will take you on a journey through hidden lagoons, flooded forests and rivers where the water flows black.
You'll be able to catch wild piranhas, observe the stunning flora and fauna of the river systems and, if you're lucky, catch a glimpse of pink dolphins who live in these fresh jungle waters.
One of the highlights of the Amazon cruise is a trip to an indigenous community where you'll get to taste authentic cuisine in the company of locals before taking a refreshing dip in one of the region's most beautiful lakes.
All of our tours and excursions are led by native or expert guides, so you'll obtain a real understanding of the eco-system and landscape you're travelling through.
