Tucano Amazon Cruise

The Most Authentic Cruise in Brazil's Amazon

Cruises aboard the Motor Yacht Tucano are thoughtful, active and above all exploratory. Every aspect of the cruise is designed to enable guests to observe the wonders of nature and to sample the vibrant culture that thrives in this remote corner of the earth.

With a devotion to nature and a spirit of exploration, the M/Y Tucano seeks out areas in the Brazilian Amazon often overlooked by other visitors and the clients are rewarded with a wider array of flora and fauna.

Though not a luxury vessel, the M/Y Tucano is comfortable and is designed to enable us to explore small tributaries and hidden channels where wildlife can be found, but where larger vessels cannot go. All aspects of the cruise are designed to help enjoy the best that the Amazon has to offer and to appeal to travelers who are looking for a fun, but also genuine experience.

With small group sizes, highly trained guides, a talented crew, a comfortable boat, and with more than 20 years of cruise operations' experience, the activities are thoughtful and detailed. Their latest addition, morning kayak excursions for an intimate rainforest experience, are proving very popular! All these features combined enable us to discover and enjoy an authentic Amazon that eludes almost all other travelers.

Please note that a pre-arranged visa is required by holders of US, Canadian and Australian passports, in order to enter Brazil. Contact us for more details.

What people are saying about the Tucano

The trip was absolutely incredible, and I want to thank you again for all of your help with booking it. The boat was also all that we had imagined, with comfortable beds and a cook that really knew how to cook up Brazilian fare! ... It was the cruise of a life time.
— Jon Bodansky & Julie Wilson; New York, NY
Every day was chock a block full of adventures starting very early in the morning ... The day ends with tired but happy folks crashing into bed and a sound sleep around 9:30 or so at night - no drunken evenings baying at the moon on this cruise!
