Itinerary of Our Brazil Cruises
Our cruises set off from Manaus in the Amazon and Porto Jofre in the Pantanal.
We organize the entire itinerary for your Brazil cruise, so you can just sit back and enjoy the ride. This of course includes hotel accommodation before and after the cruise, as well as all transfers and additional excursions. On board, you can expect full board and an exciting excursion program with experienced, English-speaking guides.
You can choose from a packed schedule of Amazon excursions to suit your interests and the weather conditions. These include canoe tours, rainforest hikes, piranha fishing, or a visit to an local village. Pantanal cruises on the other hand are most famous for their jaguar observation expeditions. Jaguar safaris always take place in smaller boats to try to spot the big cats on the river banks or even swimming in the water.
The Best Seasons for Brazil Cruises
We recommended that you plan your Pantanal cruise for between May and October. This time of year is especially suitable for jaguar spotting, meaning you will have the best chance to spot the big cats in their natural habitat.
The best time for an Amazon cruise is from December to August. Due to the high water levels, you can enter deep into flooded areas in motorized canoes to explore the Amazon’s flora and fauna up close.
Highlights of Our Amazon Cruises
One of the highlights of an Amazon cruise is the breathtaking natural scenery that you will experience every day. Discover the flora and fauna of the Amazon through a varied schedule of excursions and learn about the culture and daily life of the indigenous people. Let the life in the Amazon pass you by while you relax on deck and soak up the unforgettable landscape.
Highlights of Our Pantanal Cruises
Enjoy several days of adventure in the Pantanal wilderness, which is one of the largest inland wetlands on earth. On these cruises, you will enjoy daily animal observation expeditions, and with luck, you could spot giant otters, tapirs, capybaras, and various bird species. Of course, the main highlight is jaguar observation, and you may be lucky enough to meet this magnificent big cat in its natural habitat.
