Cruise the Amazon River
Take a cruise on the Amazon River, the world’s largest river system, to experience the ambience of the Amazon Jungle. Leave the boat for a closer look on jungle treks through the rainforest and canoe trips through the creeks. Take night-time expeditions to see caimans and other nocturnal creatures. Visit Amazon communities and learn how they adapt to life in the world’s largest rainforest. Awaken early to be staggered by the dawn chorus that makes every morning special in the Amazon. Feast on fruits and fish found only in the Amazon, and enjoy the sights and sounds of the jungle at night from the deck of your boat as you Cruise the Amazon with Brazil Adventure Tours.
The Amazon Clipper Cruise
The Amazon Clipper Cruise is a wonderful shorter Amazon cruise, with two levels of boat - the Premium and Traditional types - along with three possible lengths, being the 2 night Rio Solimoes or 3 night Rio Negro cruises, or the 5 night combination of both tributaries of the Amazon River. This 5 night cruise takes you out of Manaus on Monday to travel up the Rio Solimoes to the Xiborena region of rubber trees and giant water lilies. Canoe trips on Lake Janauaca and the Lake Januario Ecological Park bring you closer to flocks of egrets and cormorants, with piranha fishing and night safaris. The second half of the cruise travels up the Rio Negro to the Anavilhanas Archipelago and Novo Airao, where the Amazon River Dolphins like to stay. The Amazon Clipper cruises depart from Manaus most weeks, on Monday and Wednesday. The boats are in the traditional low-berth Amazon style, allowing passage through shallow waters and giving close access to jungle and wildlife. The fleet consists of the three-deck Traditional with 8 air-conditioned cabins with bunk beds, all on the outside of the boat. The four-deck Premium boats have 16 air-conditioned cabins with lower beds, again all facing the river and the rainforest. Both have covered outdoor viewing areas and comfortable common areas.
