Traveling more than 600 miles along the Amazon River, International Expeditions’ Aquamarina is preparing to take two lucky groups of voyagers on a river safari with savings of more than 25 percent.
The tours, each a 10-day Amazon Voyage, depart on June 1 and 22. During their tour, guests will enjoy rainforest hikes, piranha fishing, and exploring the rivers of the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, where they might see pink and grey river dolphins, sloths, giant otters and 100+ bird species. Passengers will also interact with the Ribereños—native people of Amazon’s remote villages—passing out school supplies to children, participating in a blessing ceremony, and learning about local agriculture and crafts.
The Aquamarina riverboat accommodates up to 24 guests and a staff of 16, promising excellent guest service. Discounted rates for June 1 and 22 Amazon Voyage sailings start at $2,898 pp, including accommodations, excursions, complimentary laundry, most meals, guides, transfers, and tips for porters and waiters.
