The Amazon River Yacht Charter Guide

The Amazon River is the most famous and arguably most important river on our planet. As it snakes its way from east to west across South America, it traverses some of the most wildlife-enriched regions of the Amazon Rainforest, the world’s most biodiverse natural treasure. Inhabited by a colossal array of endemic, rare and downright spellbinding creatures, the Amazon River is a nature lover’s paradise, and river cruises to explore its deepest, darkest depths a bucket-list dream for any discerning and adventurous yachtie. 

Having said that, Amazon River yacht charters are also aimed at those who dream of an Amazon adventure but dread having to tackle waters infested with piranhas and caimans, and jungle floors brimming with a million exotic critters. For those who dream, albeit hesitantly, a more rewarding journey you could not find.

Luxury Amazon River Yacht Charters

Amazon yacht charter cruises are by far the most comfortable, enjoyable and rewarding way to explore this incredibly remote and impenetrable world. Even those who are aghast at the mere thought of diving deep into this enigmatic jungle can’t help but swoon with delight at the sheer simplicity and ease of it all. From air-conditioned comfortsto exceptional gastronomic delightsand a variety of land and river-based excursionsmake luxury Amazon River cruising an absolute treat for all the senses. The best of all worlds, one might say. Worlds where unspoilt wilderness and opulent comforts live in perfect symbiosis.

Amazon River Wildlife

Animal lovers will undoubtedly salivate at the mere thought of an Amazon River adventure. Rare pink dolphins, sloths, black caimans, anacondas, piranhas, countless monkeys and endless colonies of amazing birds. On an Amazon River yacht charter, that’s just what you’ll encounter on the first day. The immensely fertile wilderness is nurtured by a river so big and so pure that it supplies over 20% of our earth’s freshwater supply. More than one-third of all the animals and plants on earth are found right here and if immersing yourself in pristine nature is on your must-do list then you really shouldn’t consider any other destination. 

On a river cruise journey, you’ll get to explore the Amazon by boat and on foot, depending on the time of year you visit. High-water levels during the rainiest months offer unparalleled chances to explore by skiff. During the driest months, although you may not be able to explore deeply by river, you will have the option to trek on land to your heart’s content, enjoying closer wildlife encounters and learning more about the flora of this truly magnificent place.

Peru – The Best Amazon River Yacht Charter Destination 

The Amazon River crosses through 9 South American countries yet the only viable entry points for visitors are in Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru, the latter being exceptionally perfect for river cruise explorations. Through the Peruvian hub of Iquitos, a fascinating village that’s completely cut off from the rest of the world by road, you can access one of the most wildlife-enriched regions of the Amazon, namely the Pacaya Samiria Nature Reserve. Iquitos is easy to reach by plane, is located on the eastern end of the Amazon (the one side which boasts the most tributaries) and is developed enough to boast luxury lodgesand host of luxury charter yachts. If you wish to add the Amazon to your yachting repertoire and enjoy the opulent comforts you’re accustomed to, then you need not make any sacrifices at all. 

An Amazon River yacht charter in Peru combines all your wishes, offering a unique experience in one of the most sought-after destinations on earth.
