Amazon clipper

The Amazon

We have always liked cruising the Amazon rather than remaining in a lodge as by boat you are slightly higher up enabling you to see out across the canopy and marvel at the constantly changing skyline.  This is one of the best ways to relax and take in the this vast wilderness

Why we recommend it:

  • One of the best ways to see the Amazon
  • Cabins with en-suite facilities
  • Motorised canoes to access smaller tributaries
  • On board naturalists and guides



The Amazon Clipper gives you one of the best ways to enjoy the Amazon: on the water, integrated with the environment. The Amazon Clipper cruises are perfect for those wanting to experience the Amazon up-close and in comfort.
They offer three packages, with itineraries ranging from three to six days. Destinations include the Amazon River, Rio Negro, and a longer tour combining both rivers. All tours include buffet-style meals, day trips for fishing and exploring, and specialised information from the boat’s guide.

You can choose from two categories of boats: traditional and premium. Differing in size and facilities, both offer air-conditioned cabins with private bathrooms, a covered dining room with bar, and a sundeck. Boats are large enough to offer spacious cabins, but small enough to dock at remote spots and cruise to hidden locations. The boats also come equipped with electrical power in 120 V (AC) and 12 V (DC), and two outboard-motor canoes for side-trips and fishing.

The Amazon Clipper program has 3 boats – Amazon Clipper Cruise, Selly Clipper, Selly Clipper II. Programs are conducted on one of the three boats without previous confirmation – depending on the number of people for each departure. The difference between the boats is mainly number of cabins. They all have the same facilities and amenities.
