The Amazon is wide, slow and winding, with large areas of seasonally flooded forest. The river itself forms the triple borders of Brazil, Colombia and Peru. Flooded by blackwater tributaries with sediments from the Andes, it carries nutrients to support an amazing diversity of plant and animal life. Explore this incredible place rarely seen by the outside world, encounter indigenous populations, and learn how the rise and fall of the river relates to the rise and fall of fortunes. Possible wildlife encounters include sloths, monkeys, birds, pink dolphins and more.
Aside from offering personalized service and exceptional amenities that guests have come to expect for over 30 years, Seabourn offers unforgettable expeditions to some of the world’s most remote, awe- inspiring locations. Explore places few people will ever see — in a style that you’ve never imagined.

This cruise is best for guests who’d like the Amazon experience and then to enjoy time aboard the ship while at sea.
Both itineraries offer a mix of discovering local cultures in some of the ports as well as some excellent zodiac and kayak tours to more remote tributaries looking for natural history, sloths, monkeys, pink dolphins and all the bird life. The Amazon is half of each voyage and the time here will all be expedition: Zodiacs, kayaks, cultural interaction, wildlife searching and even a night-time Zodiac ride, if conditions and timing allow.
Seabourn provides a wide range of expedition activities, operated and escorted by a knowledgeable, world-class 26-person expedition team of scientists, scholars, naturalists and more.

We look forward to hearing from you and recommend a booking is made as soon as possible to secure your 1st choice of accommodation as well as the best prices, as the Amazon cruises are popular and sell out far in advance.
We have a number of choices for the Amazon, so let us know if you’d prefer something different including a smaller river cruise.
