Allow the legendary Amazon River time to slowly unveil her majesty and wonders in nature over seven fascinating days. Kayak, canoe or swim in these unspoiled waters, keeping your eyes peeled for the Amazon’s legendary pink dolphins. Be witness to one of the great spectacles of the Southern Hemisphere, the birth of the
Amazon River and see the unforgettable giant waterlilies. Seek out wildlife including three-toed sloths, toucans, and macaws, fish for piranhas, and meet taricaya turtles in their natural habitat. Enjoy a breakfast picnic accompanied by the jungle symphony and fish along the black waters of the Pacaya River. As the Aqua Nera journeys towards the union of the Ucayali and the Maranon Rivers, considered the birthplace of the Amazon, learn from the ship's experienced, expert naturalist guides about the diverse Amazon wildlife and birds of the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve.
