Departing from Manaus, the Iracema is a traditional wooden-hulled riverboat with 12 bunk rooms. This lovely boat is exclusively available for private charters of up to 24 guests with bespoke itineraries.
Welcome Aboard The Iracema
The 12 air-conditioned bunks with en-suite bathrooms are just the tip of the amenities available aboard the Iracema. The 26.39-meter boat features an upper deck with a large observation deck. Spend a relaxing afternoon sunbathing here and return in the evening for stargazing or a dinner grilled on the barbeque.
The observation deck is also a prime spot for getting a bird’s-eye view of the ‘Meeting of the Waters’. Near Manaus, the dark water of the River Negro and the tan water of the Solimões River flow side by side within mixing, creating a breathtaking scene of multi-hued water.
On the second deck, you will find the dining area, bar, and library. This cozy space will quickly become your favorite for lingering over delicious meals, settling down to read out of the sun, and sipping a cocktail while recounting the day’s adventures.
Tailormade Itineraries For Your Group
The beauty of a private Iracema Amazon cruise is the ability to select the length of your stay and the activities that fill your days. Wildlife lovers will enjoy a canoe trip along the Xiboreninha Channel to spot rare birds and caimans among the Victoria Regia water lilies. A favorite among many guests is a visit to Novo Airão. This area, also known as ‘Dolphin City,’ is home to large numbers of Amazonian pink dolphins with which you can take a once-in-a-lifetime swim.
You will also have the opportunity to sail through the Anavilhanas Archipelago. This labyrinth of 300 islands is made of flooded forests and is home to a wide range of exotic wildlife. Other highlights include fishing for piranha, late-night safaris under a canopy of millions of stars, and visits to indigenous riverside communities.
Travel With The Pioneers Of Adventure Tourism
In 1980, Moacir Fortes, a native of the Copeá region of the Amazon, began sharing his knowledge and passion for the area with small groups of visitors. In the 40 years since, Captain Mo continued welcoming guests with stories, legends, and expert-level knowledge of the river and the area’s flora and fauna. Today, Captain Mo’s family continues his legacy.
The team can design itineraries for both first-time visitors and those looking to delve deeper into botany and primatology. In keeping with Captain Mo’s charismatic attitude, the focus is always on embracing the Amazonian people’s casualness and warmth.
If you are planning an extended family getaway, a corporate retreat, or a holiday for a close-knit group of friends, an Iracema Amazon cruise is a chance to make memories in one of the earth’s most unique environments.
