Day 1Depart Manaus for Rio Negro

Sunset over deck of Amazon river cruise ship

This afternoon, embark on the Motor Yacht Tucano in Manaus. We sail along the Rio Negro and as the vessel glides upstream we will have our first talk about Amazonian environments. By late afternoon we enter one of the world’s largest river island systems, the Anavilhanas Archipelago. The boat will weave along a winding channel with rainforest on both sides in a riot of brilliant vegetation. Weather permitting, we will go for a launch excursion in the gnarled and dense flooded forest known as the Igapó. Along the river bank we may see Squirrel Monkeys and we may hear the other-worldly growls of Howler Monkeys echoing through the primitive rainforest. The Amazon has one of the greatest collection of birds in the world and we are sure to see some of these brightly colored jewels perched in the treetops.

We return to the M/Y Tucano for hors d’oeuvres on the observation deck and a toast to the rainforest sunset. Following dinner we will embark in our launches in search of nocturnal creatures such as the Caiman, the Amazon’s crocodilians. We may also see one of the large night birds such as a Potoo with its bulging eyes and large mouth adapted to swallow the huge Mariposa Moths.

7 Days / 6 Nights From 3150

Voyage to the Heart of the Amazon 6 Nights

Voyage to the Heart of the Amazon is different from all other cruises offered in the Amazon, it is an “expedition cruise”. Our small groups explore far into the forest where we are able to see creatures that are hidden to other visitors. We explore some of the most untouched rainforest in all of the Amazon. Our expedition cruise is the only one that explores far into the world’s largest Amazon reserve: The Central Amazon Conservation Complex. This reserve is a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site and encompasses tens of thousands of square miles of uninhabited wilderness. Within these trackless forests still live the creatures that have made the Amazon the object of myth and legend. Because of the exploratory nature, the small size of the groups, and especially our skilled guides, our expedition cruises enable travelers to experience the rainforest in the most detailed and authentic way possible.

This morning, board the Motor Yacht Tucano and glide upstream on the Rio Negro. Cruise towards the most extensive river island system in the world, the Anavilhanas Archipelago. From the observation deck, marvel at the lush vegetation at the edge of the water. In the afternoon, the vessel will have gone beyond the frontier of settlement and entered a wilderness area. Both shores are covered by dense rainforest. Take the opportunity to spot pink river dolphins swimming in the water and a large collection of exotic birds.
