Jacaré-Tinga Amazon Cruise

Intimate, Action-Packed Cruising in Brazil's Remote Amazon

The Jacaré-Tinga combines adventure, ecology and comfort. With special authorization to operate in some of the most remote parts of the Brazilian Amazon.

With a well-trained and very experienced crew, she is able to undertake thrilling itineraries of up to ten days, that offer incredible scenery, wonderful wildlife-spotting opportunities, and constant adventure activities.

The Jacaré-Tinga - which means Spectacled Caiman in Portuguese -  has been inspired by the traditional charm of caboclo culture - the European-Indian racial mix that has arisen along the Amazon, and developed a distinct set of customs and practices. So the boat draws on their boat-building tradition, the cuisine is rich in local ingredients and influence, and the itinerary visits and supports Amazon riverside communities. A great plus is that these cruises are all-inclusive, with fruit juices, soft drinks, mineral water, beer, fruit caipirinhas and caipiroskas to keep you hydrated (or not)!

The three-cabin boat is rustic and cosy, with room for only eight passengers, but still boasts all modern amenities. So, all cabins are air-conditioned and with private facilities; and there are three inviting public areas for relaxation and socialising ... and meal times!

And if you wish to include a dose of adventure amongst all the beautiful scenery and wildlife, then the Jacaré-Tinga can offer tree climbing, jungle hikes, parasailing, inflatable tubes and piranha fishing.

Please note that the Jacaré-Tinga is the sister ship of the larger Jacaré-Açu. For regular (non-charter) rates and itineraries of the Jacaré-Tinga, please see the Jacaré-Açu.

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 Jacaré-Tinga

jacare-tinga cruise testimonial
The boat trip on the Jacaré-Tinga was very good – excellent crew and guide, good food and they modified the activities to align with our particular interests (more wildlife and less local people contact).

If you remember we were concerned about going on the smaller Jacaré-Tinga but after we were on board we could not have been happier ... We have been to many interesting places but Ann and I both agree that this is the best trip we have ever taken.
