Explore the Amazon in the utmost comfort with Aqua Expeditions! Unlike other commercial cruise ships, the Aqua Amazon can host up to 24 guests plus the crew and feel spacious and indulgent but completely intimate at the same time. Large windows face the Amazon River, boasting the most incredible views. One of Latin America’s most acclaimed young chefs, Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, will provide you with delicious Amazonia gourmet dining. Aqua Amazon has 7, 4 or 3 night excursions available to suite your needs.
Question: Why should I book with Aqua Expeditions?
Answer: Aqua Expeditions pioneered the concept of ultra-luxurious small ship cruises on the Peruvian stretch of the Amazon River. Our first ship, the Aqua Amazon immediately began to sell out, as word spread about the possibility to enjoy supremely luxurious accommodations and fine dining while exploring some of the most remote, wildlife rich areas of the Amazon River. Beyond building this stylish and safe cruising vessel, founder Francesco Galli Zugaro identified local guides who knew every animal, bird and tree of the Amazon jungle—most had grown up there. These Aqua Expeditions guides provide life changing travel and educational experiences for our guests. His success was so great that almost immediately he began construction on a second boat, the Aria Amazon, which also sails the Amazon.
“Nature takes care of the lighting on our generous outdoor deck on the Aqua Amazon, with plenty of invigorating sunshine for those who wish to soak it up on cushioned loungers during the day, to after dusk when stars fill the Peruvian sky. Guests seeking fresh Amazonia air without sun exposure will find plenty of space and comfortable seating under our expansive awning.”
