WHY THIS TRIP
A river cruise is one of the best ways to experience the Amazon, and the Manatee Amazon Explorer can access remote and rarely visited places in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest! Due to the inherent mobility of a cruise, you experience more regions and diverse wildlife and landscapes than you could by staying in a sedentary jungle lodge.
Over the course of an itinerary the Amazon Manatee Explorer visits as many as four protected areas: Yasuni National Park, the Cuyabeno Reserve, Limoncocha and Pañacocha biological corridor. While shorter cruises don’t visit all of these areas, they still see new sites and regions every day.
Sustainable travel is at the core of the Amazon Manatee Explorer, and the boat is both Smart Voyager Certified and Rainforest Alliance Verified. The entire operation is based on sustainability, and it works to make sure 15 local communities and indigenous groups benefit from your trip to the Amazon. Passengers have the opportunity to connect with the destination and generate memorable experiences by interacting with both local people and wildlife on the same trip.
The itineraries are carefully designed to allow you to interact with the unique wildlife of the region and have the perfect combination of day and night excursions, on board events, and recreational activities.
On board the Manatee, you will wake up to entirely new Amazonian scenery every day. You will enjoy the great comforts of the Manatee Amazon Explorer: Cabins fully equipped with Air Conditioning, private bathrooms with hot water and 24-hour electricity. The ample social Areas include inside and al fresco dining areas, a sun deck, library and Satellite TV and Internet access.
