Purpose-built, luxury Amazon cruise vessel offering exciting on-shore excursions and a warm Ecuadorian welcome.

Purpose-built for cruises in the Ecuadorian rainforest, the Manatee Amazon Explorer is a luxury vessel welcoming up to 30 guests in cosy, wood-panelled cabins each with private bathroom, hot water and air-conditioning. There is a restaurant and lounge area, and a panoramic terrace from which to watch the natural world float by. Hospitality has a warm Ecuadorian flavour.

Relax as you float down the river or join on-shore excursions that delve into the dense forest, including hikes and nocturnal jungle walks, canoe trips into the Yasuni National Park, swimming, piranha fishing and visiting local families to gain an insight into the customs of indigenous peoples.
