Travel down the world’s greatest rivers with Aqua Expeditions
Embark on the voyage of a lifetime, sailing the earth’s mightiest river. Imagine gliding through the Amazon jungle aboard a 24-passenger luxury vessel. Walk to a remote native village and spend an afternoon on a skiff, spotting monkeys and piranhas and the endangered scarlet macaw. After a gourmet dinner designed by one of Peru’s superstar chefs, sit out on the observation deck to watch the jungle pass in slow motion.
The Aqua Amazon is the first boutique expedition vessel to cruise the northern Amazon. Its 12 oversized guest suites all feature en-suite sitting areas and generous outward-facing panoramic windows. Aqua Expeditions is entirely unique to the Peruvian Amazon, exploring the more remote and pristine areas of the Pacaya Samiria Reserve in the upper Amazon River and its tributaries. Each day guests set out with guides in three launches to explore the small inlets and winding river systems that make up the flooded Amazon forest. Visitors will have the opportunity to see hundreds of species, including the endangered pink Amazon dolphin, black alligator and three toed sloth.
Since 2014, guests are also invited to travel up and down the Mekong River between the historically and culturally rich countries of Vietnam and Cambodia in Southeast Asia. Here, between the thriving cultures of the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam and Cambodia’s ancient ruins and colonial charms, Aqua Expeditions delivers unprecedented international luxury and local intelligence to guests as they travel on the Aqua Mekong from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh, to the Tonle Sap River to Vietnam’s capital of Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon.
