We follow responsible ecotourism practices including:
We support the Manatees Rescue Center (CREA) in Iquitos, in the rehabilitation of orphan Amazonic Manatees. We are active colaborators of the Amazon Forever organization, commited to the preservation of flora and fauna as to the education of young generations on sustainable tourism responsible practices. Our boats are equipped with silencers to minimize noise pollution which affects wild life in the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve. It's strictly forbidden to touch wild life during the outings.
Our suppliers of handcrafts are the inhabitants of the Amazon communities and their products are displayed in all our cruises to support local economy. 80% of our employees come from the community of Iquitos and its surroundings.
In an effort to eliminate the use of plastic, we give all our passengers with a metal reusable water bottle. On our cruise ships, we carefully sort waste for recycling (plastics, organic waste, cardboard, paper, batteries).
We have a wastewater treatment system on our cruise ships. All waste is treated with a smart sanitation system and storage tanks (PETARD) that meet IMO and US Coast Guard standards. The result is 100% clean and sterile water that can be safely discharged into rivers. All the remaining waste is collected during the trip and recycled or responsibly disposed of upon disembarkation. On all our cruises, we only use biodegradable, non-toxic cleaning products (ECOLAB).
We encourage all passengers to request changing their towels only when necessary to reduce energy consumption aboard our cruises.

We had a wonderful time in the Amazon! We especially enjoyed the walk through the jungle and the night time cruise.
We really enjoyed meeting and visiting the local village. However, we felt that the dance by the women was too sexualized and made us uncomfortable.
Angela, Danny, Uber, Charlie, Jimmy were all outstanding and provided excellent service at all time.
Thank you so much ¡Gracias!
