Access deeper parts of Ecuador’s Amazon, uncover wildlife and cultures seen by only the few, and go on a journey in the company of unrivalled understanding and expertise.
Anakonda Amazon Cruises was founded by Raul Garcia, who has explored these territories for over 40 years, and wants to introduce visitors to a world that is completely out of the ordinary. This is a family-owned venture with a sole purpose of bringing light to the wonderful wildlife of the Amazon at maximum biodiversity.
Anakonda Amazon Cruises operate two impressive vessels, Anakonda and Manatee, and this is the only cruise operator in Ecuadorian Amazonia. Journeys depart from a remote dock, accessed by motorised canoe from Coca, and the tours range from 4 to 8 days.
Expect to uncover four protected rainforest areas on the 8-day itinerary. Yasuni, Cuyabeno Reserve, Limoncocha, and Panacocha Biological Corridor are rarely visited by other tourists, and experiences of nature and the local communities are unparalleled.
Floor to ceiling windows with views of the passing river, and verdant rainforest make an early morning rise far from difficult on-board. Explore the Napo River as no others have seen it, and spot eagles, oropendolas and celebrated woodpeckers fly towards the canopies that fringe the water’s edge.
Get involved with pink dolphin conservation projects, and meet with the communities in the area that provide a safe haven where they can live and feed without the risk of being poached. Take off for the day on a non-motorised canoe to meander through the flooded forests, or trek on paths towards towering canopy towers or claylicks abundant with species.
An extensive menu of cultural and wildlife-viewing opportunities are joined by unparalleled luxury on-board. Sink into the vibrations of rainforest life, and relax in the evenings with drinks or a recline in the jacuzzi out on deck.
