The tour I propose I Call it Floodplain Exploration and It is really, really good! Lots of wildlife, History and scenically unforgettable!!! If you want more details (and have any questions or concerns), please check reviews on Trip Advisor or Cruisecritic and never hesitate to write. My goal is to make your experience in the Amazon amazing and enriching.
Helping others learn about and appreciate the Amazon is my passion.
The tour, which is very different from what others offer, includes an authentic Amazon boat cruise to the extraordinary meeting of the Tapajos and Amazon rivers. We will also explore the Floodplain, where we will see many species of birds. And I guarantee that we will see Three-toed Sloths and Pink Dolphins!
Here is a link to my little e-book Essential Wildlife Cruiseship Passengers Amazon . When you buy one it guarantees you a printed copy on arrival. Very most of the wildlife you will see on my little book is observed during your cruise and our tour. It also contains a centerfold map.
This area was also explored by famous Victorian biologists like Bates, Wallace, and Spruce. The Canadian Charles Frederick Hartt with the Swiss Louis Agassiz. Several American Confederates moved here (you probably want to see this article http://www.sapiens.org/archaeology/american-confederates-amazon-basin/, as well as the infamous British 'rubber thief' Henry Wickham, who was hosted by The Riker family. Most of these people were acquainted to my Jewish grand-father Julio Serique, who moved from Morocco in 1850’s and became a merchant in the Tapajos River Valley.
If you like fishing we do have the time for it and we provide basic rods and fishing line. During the tour we serve Brazil nuts, cashew nuts, fish snacks, bottled drinks, the freshest lemonade, some beer, ice-cream and (I promise) the very best caipirinhas.
I would like to suggest you getting Joe Jackson’s The Thief at the End of the World. It is an amazing reading to have during your cruise. I also worked with Joe Jackson and Redmond O'Hanlon on the documentary you can access by the link below.
