Brazil Amazon Cruise

Voyage to the Heart of the Amazon - An Amazon Cruise to the Greatest Wilderness on Earth!

This Amazon river journey explores some of the most untouched rainforest in all of the Amazon.  We venture far up the least inhabited river in the Amazon Basin on our expedition vessel, the Motor Yacht Tucano. Weaving in and out of small channels on the Rio Negro, we explore areas very rarely visited and seek out the mysterious life of the wilderness that stirs in the forest and in the heart of wild nature.

Voyage to the Heart of the Amazon is the most thorough, detailed, and sophisticated trip offered in the entire Amazon.  Our guides are accomplished naturalists and we see creatures almost never seen by other visitors. The trip is rather like being on a time machine, in that we are able to visit places that have not changed for millions of years


Days 1-3

In the well equipped expedition boat, The Motor Yacht Tucano, we explore far up the least inhabited river in the Amazon, The Rio Negro.  We explore the forest by foot or in our launches, go for swims in the cleanest water in the world, visit with local settlers that live deep in the forest, and spend a great deal of time hunting for and observing the greatest collection of wildlife on earth.

Day 4  

We arrive at extraordinary river called the Rio Jauaperi and spend the day in this unspoiled and lovely rainforest area.

Days 5

Today we proceed down the south western bank of the Rio Negro observing the different wildlife found on this side of the river.  Our walks and explorations of the forest continue and our list of creatures observed gets larger and larger.

Day 6

Today we visit the village of Novo Airão. We will walk through the streets and marvel at how the 19th Century thrives in this remote corner of the globe.  We travel through the night to the confluence of the Amazon and Negro Rivers.

Day 7

This morning we visit the Lago Janauari Ecological Park, where the thick brown water of the Amazon flows swiftly through the forest.  This area is thick with life and we are almost guaranteed to see monkeys.  We then travel to the “Encontra das Aguas” the stark several mile long line where the world’s two largest rivers, the Amazon and the Negro, join in a turbulent maelstrom.  In the evening we will return to Manaus and overnight on the boat.

Day 8

After breakfast passengers will disembark from The Tucano and in the afternoon or evening, transfer to the International Airport.
