Choose from two different excursions:
Undertake a full-day excursion along the Pacaya River. Observe and explore the flooded forest of this vast region. Sail among a wide variety of wildlife, birds including large parrots, macaws, herons and storks, and many species of primates. Visit some of the most beautiful lakes in the protected reserve and meet some of the friendly local people who take care of the reserve’s natural resources. Your nature guide discusses the ship operator's involvement in the natural resource management of Amazonia. En route back to the Aqua Amazon, see the famous Ceiba tree, the highest in the Amazon.
Board your comfortable boat to sail and explore the Pacaya black water river. Life jackets, ponchos, rubber boots, and fresh water are always available in your boats. As you sail, the occasional fisherman paddles past in their homemade canoes. Keep your binoculars ready to spot terns, tropical songbirds, black hawks, monkeys, and sloths. Try to catch some of the ferocious piranhas of the Amazon. As you fish, your naturalist guide tells the story of the lake and its inhabitants.
Keep your eyes out for two different kinds of freshwater dolphins, but especially the unusual pink dolphins found in the Amazon River. Spot arboreal lizards, iguanas, and look up to catch a glimpse of some of the area’s 200 bird species.
