Amazon Clipper Premium

For anyone who enjoys the comfort of a luxury boat, the "Amazon Clipper Cruises" offers PREMIUM fleet. With Premium and Otter boats offer the best for boat cruises on the Amazon. In the Premium category, all passengers are hosted in spacious apartments with two beds side by side or one queen size bed, air conditioning and safety deposit box, all feature a spacious bathroom with hot water. An air-conditioned restaurant with a buffet. A complete deck just for fun, a large room for meetings and lectures air-conditioned with TV and DVD, bar, hot tubs and showers to freshen up and relax. A sun deck with panoramic views of 360 °. 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.
