The Most Authentic Cruise in Brazil's Amazon that Travels to a UNESCO World Heritage Site
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, all while exploring in a sustainable way.
Though not a luxury vessel, the M/Y Tucano is of a superior comfort level to many other boats in the Brazilian Amazon 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 (the cruise often departs with only 14 passengers, meaning a 7-to-1 passenger-guide ratio), highly trained guides, a talented crew, a comfortable boat, more than 20 years of cruise operations' experience, and thoughtful and detailed activities, a cruise on board the Tucano is one of the most popular Brazilian Amazon cruises around. Their latest addition, morning kayak excursions for an intimate rainforest experience, are proving very popular!
Another great selling point is that there are triple and dedicated single cabins on board, and even a great money-saving option to share a bunk cabin, making this cruise ideal for both single travelers and families alike.
Amazon rainforest sustainability is of utmost importance for the Tucano Amazon cruise. From the earliest design stages, the Motor Yacht Tucano incorporated equipment and design features intended to reduce our carbon footprint. One of the most important of these is to enable all of the basic functions of the vessel to operate without the need of diesel generators continuously producing electricity. On the M/Y Tucano the shower and toilet water systems, illumination, cooking, refrigeration, drinking water cooling, ice making, and the propulsion of our launches all work without diesel generators functioning. This is accomplished partly through ship design and through extensive solar-electric and solar-thermal arrays. Overall, you will enjoy a much quieter cruise and exploration experience, allowing you to get closer to wildlife. You can rest assured knowing that there won't be much noise to scare away birds, monkeys and other Amazonian wildlife.
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.
