South America Amazon Cruise

Manatee Amazon Explorer Cruise

The 4-, 5- and 8-day Amazon River cruises aboard the 30-guest Manatee Amazon Explorer offer incredible, active, eco-friendly journeys to the Amazon rainforest, with itineraries that include an impressive diversity in the most pristine areas of the Ecuadorian Amazon. The M/V Manatee Amazon Explorer allows guests to experience unparalleled adventures in total comfort with active off-ship adventures. Journey down freshwater rivers, both whitewater and blackwater, and encounter different Amazonian ecosystems, including the possibility to observe fascinating animals such as pink river dolphins, manatees, caimans and piranhas, as well as hundreds of native bird and primate species while kayaking and walking in the rainforest.

The Manatee Amazon Explorer Cruise is a sustainable travel option in the Amazon as the vessel is certified by Smart Voyager and Rainforest Alliance, entities that ensure the ship meets rigorous environmental, social and security norms to decrease the negative impacts of tourism on the local environment and communities. The Manatee also delegates some proceeds from cruises to community conservation programs. The environmental focus of the Manatee Amazon Explorer Cruises ensures guests are immersed in the environment and cultures of the Amazon on this exciting Ecuador rainforest cruise. This vessel is an AdventureSmith favorite for private charter cruises due to her modern feel and ideal size.
