A private charter cruise aboard the Spondias ensures you and seven of your nearest and dearest are at the center of attention during a four-, five-, or eight-day cruise through the Amazon. With four staterooms, the 73.5-foot Spondias is a boutique boat offering luxury service.
Life Aboard The Spondias Cruise Ship
As you step aboard the Spondias, the first thing you will notice is the number of crew members ready and waiting to assist you. Eight crew members, for a 1:1 passenger-to-crew ratio, provide unparalleled service. Everywhere you look, modern style will remind you that you are on an upscale cruise, even while traversing the remote regions of the Amazon.
On the upper desk’s outdoor lounge, breath in the fresh air and feel the breeze on your skin while the oversized canopy protects you from the sun. In the dining room, cutlery and glass imported from Europe complement gourmet meals. And, of course, you will still have spectacular views of the river from your comfortable seat at the table.
Excursions from your Spondias cruise
The Spondias sails a variety of four-, five-, and eight-day cruises, so there is something to fit every group, schedule, and season. There is even an option for an eight-day birdwatching cruise, which offers unique opportunities to observe the Amazon’s feathery inhabitants, such as the Yellow-rumped Cacique, the Scarlet Macaw, and the Ringed Kingfisher.
Other itineraries feature chances to explore the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve by small boat and on foot. During the four-day cruise, enjoy an evening picnic in the jungle before taking a night trek to search for poison dart frogs, bats, and other nocturnal animals. On the five-day route, explore the Nauta Caño Creek, either by skiff boat or canoe, before visiting a local village to learn about the local people’s farming and fishing traditions.
The eight-day itinerary provides a rare opportunity to see a rainforest village and meet a local Shaman to learn about shamanic out-of-body travels to the spirit world. Depending on the schedule you select, you may enjoy other highlights, such as fishing for piranha, camping in the jungle, and spotlighting for caimans. Whatever the route, expert naturalist guides will lead the way and provide in-depth information on local cultures and the area’s flora and fauna.
