The 130-foot-long, M/V Aqua is the first true luxury cruise ship on the northern Amazon River in Peru and was custom built for Aqua Expeditions by Peruvian architect Jordi Puig in 2007 to offer an extraordinary level of comfort for all guests.
Aqua Expeditions has assembled a talented and experienced team of naturalist and interpretive Amazon River guides and professional crew who are the most important and essential ingredient in our luxury class cruise service on Peru's Amazon River. Their expert knowledge of the M/V Aqua cruise ship, the Amazon's wildlife, plants and birdlife and the history of this part of Peru will be the difference between a visit to Peru and an unforgettable life experience on Peru's Amazon River.
M/V Aqua Naturalist Guides
Three highly trained interpreter Amazon River guides, who know all the flora and fauna of the Amazon, will take you on as many as three expeditions a day, aboard comfortable motorized skiffs. Your English-speaking Amazon guides will give you both the big picture of life on the Amazon, and will point out the multitude of small details that make the region special--a howler monkey hidden in a tree, a vivid butterfly resting on a leaf, a bird, such as the endangered harpy eagle, enjoying the tranquility of the Amazon basin.
