The Tucano Amazon Cruise
Aboard the Tucano Amazon Cruise, you will explore the Amazon Rainforest from Manaus. And you will travel down the magnificent Rio Negro, the largest tributary of the Amazon River.
A marvellous and varied experience, very well organised, & sympathetic to the culture and nature of the region.
Aspects that were interesting and pleasurable: Swimming, the variety of small-boat trips, peacefully cruising. Excellent meals. Seeing so many animals. Very friendly crew and well-informed guides.”
Meals: Excellent. Dione did a superb job! How does she do that?
Crew members: Very helpful, always cheerful and adaptable. Cleaning our boots kept the boat clean, but it was an unexpected and welcome gesture. Thank you.
The guides: Extremely knowledgeable and with eyes like eagles. Thoroughly professional and with good sense of humour and ready to share personal and local history.”

You will explore some of the most untouched areas of this vast forest. Many of the tributaries and areas we visit are out of reach from other tours and cruises. And the Tucano is the only vessel capable of exploring one of the Amazon’s largest reserves, the Central Amazon Ecological Corridor.
Tucano Amazon Riverboat Expeditions
We will set off from Manaus, Brazil. This is the largest city in the Amazon Rainforest and a port of the Amazon RIver.
From the comfortable vessel, you will enjoy guided walks at various points in the rainforest to explore the Amazon with your naturalist guide. In this diverse tropical forest, you can find many different Amazon animals and plants. See different monkeys, colorful birds, river dolphins and towering rainforest trees.
Aboard the Tucano’s small excursion boats, you will also explore small streams and waterways. When evening comes, if we are not scouting the waterways for nocturnal animals, you can also join the discussions about Amazon wildlife seen during the day.
