Ecuadorian Amazon cruise

Manatee Amazon Explorer

Journey by boat to the heart of the jungle, exploring the Amazon rainforest on a variety of land and water based excursions.

Few experiences have as much power to awe and humble us as the feeling of being utterly surrounded by the untamed wild beauty of the Amazon rainforest. Travelling down rivers you may once have traced with your finger in a school atlas, you can live out long-held dreams of jungle adventure on an unforgettable Amazon cruise.

Departing from Coca, 3-, 4- and 7-day river cruises on the luxurious MV Manatee and MV Anakonda take you deep into wild territory where every inch of land is smothered in an emerald mantle of vegetation.

Each day there is a programme of activities to offer insights into varied aspects of life in the jungle, from canoe trips and walks along rainforest trails in search of wildlife to visits to local indigenous communities. You'll discover how tribal peoples make harmonious use of natural resources within a fragile ecosystem, relying on medicinal plants and timeworn methods of hunting and fishing.
