Arrive in Coca and transfer to the docks to embark on a motorized canoe. Navigate down the river for about 90 minutes before meeting the M/V Manatee.
Immediately after boarding the M/V Manatee, begin to navigate downstream. Settle in to your cabin and familiarize yourself with the ship as you sail. In the evening, disembark and take an evening walk to experience the forest's nocturnal activity.
Continue down the Panayacu River delta and stop to take a canoe trip up to experience the sights and sounds of this fascinating reserve. Seek out pink river dolphins and common squirrel monkeys. Pañacocha is an ecosystem which is flooded by white waters. The rivers and lakes are the perfect habitat for the infamous piranha, water monkey fish, and white caiman. Enjoy a delicious Amazon-style BBQ meal and refreshing beverages at a nearby camping site. In the afternoon, disembark and hike the trails that circle the area.
