Brazil Amazon River Cruises
Brazil Amazon River cruises vary from small expedition style trips that go deep into the rainforest to larger vessels offering short two or three night cruises along the Brazilian Amazon. Brazil boasts the lion’s share of the Amazon Rainforest, and there are many cruise options here. The majority start in Manaus and include a visit to the Meeting of the Waters where the rivers Negro and Solimoes meet, which is where Brazilians consider the river becomes the Amazon. Typically on a Brazil Amazon River cruise, you’ll make regular trips into the forest. Hike through the rainforest, canoe down small tributaries, and visit indigenous villages. See trees draped in orchids and bromeliads. Go out at night in search of caiman. Sip a caipirinha while enjoying the natural beauty and tranquility of the Brazilian Amazon. A cruise is easily combined with other destinations in Brazil such as a tour of Rio de Janeiro, wildlife watching in the Pantanal and a trip to the Iguazu Falls. More River Amazon cruise options can be found in Ecuador and Peru.

As you’ll see in the list of Brazil Amazon River Cruises & Tours, we offer several options and trips, from small river boats to large cruise ships, and from luxury suites to budget cabins. One of the best Brazil Amazon River Cruises that we highly recommend is the Tucano Cruise boat. Starting in Manaus, this smaller sized boat makes it easier to access tiny tributaries and rivers where the wildlife is more abundant. Plus, the Tucano’s owner simply loves to show people the Amazon, and all of our guests who have taken a cruise on the Tucano just rave about it.
