Amazon Clipper

Amazon Clipper

Know also the Clipper Premium boats

For more than twenty years, "Amazon Clipper Cruises" has been a leader in operating boat cruises in the Amazon River system departing from Manaus. Being the pioneer in Amazon boat cruises gives us a unique knowledge in logistics and knowledge about locations rarely shown to any other visitors. We offer cruises with weekly regular departure with three different itineraries; the "Amazon River Cruise", the "Negro River Cruise" and the "Amazon and Negro River Cruise". Each one is a complete experience to the Amazon, including a visit to the "Meeting of the Waters". You enjoy several side trips into the rain forest by canoe and walking, you will get a good understanding in Amazon ecology and learn about the natives surviving, health and education situations. The cruises are available in two categories of distinctly Amazonian boats. The Traditional Fleet contains "Amazon Clipper", an Amazon riverboat with traditional lines with basic comfort and facilities, such as air-conditioned cabins with private toilet, covered dining room with bar and library and a 360° view sundeck.

Both categories were designed exclusively for cruising on the Amazon River and its tributaries. Using years of experience on other tour boats we made several design innovations to make them as comfortable as possible and still offer a perfect interaction with nature. The shallow draught allows us to visit locations inaccessible to many other boats and the outboard powered canoes that we carry are used for trips in lagoons, narrow channels, creeks and flooded forest.
