Lors de la croisière Manatee Amazon, nous serons rejoints par des guides naturalistes locaux experts, qui nous donneront une brève introduction informative sur l'Amazonie équatorienne.

Le parc abrite plus de 200 espèces de papillons, 596 espèces d'oiseaux, 150 espèces d'amphibiens, 121 espèces de reptiles et 200 espèces de mammifères, dont le nombre est en constante augmentation. En fait, certains naturalistes affirment que le niveau de biodiversité du parc est si élevé que chaque voyage dans la forêt tropicale peut aboutir à la découverte d'une nouvelle espèce.

La forêt amazonienne équatorienne est située à la base de la cordillère des Andes.

Il y a des millions d'années, le fleuve Amazone coulait d'est en ouest, se jetant dans l'océan Pacifique. Lorsque la cordillère des Andes s'est élevée le long du côté est du continent sud-américain, il y a environ 20 millions d'années, la masse émergente a bloqué l'écoulement de l'Amazone. Des lacs d'eau douce se sont alors formés et le cours du fleuve s'est progressivement inversé pour reprendre son cours actuel vers l'est. Environ 10 millions d'années plus tard, le fleuve a atteint l'océan Atlantique. Les plantes et les animaux ont toujours prospéré dans les forêts tropicales qui poussent aux alentours de ses rives.

Jour 01
Arrival at Manatee

Our adventure begins in Quito, the capital of Ecuador. After a 30-minute flight from Quito to the Amazonian city of Coca, we will transfer to the dock and board our motorized canoe for a 90-minute journey down the river, taking in the beauty of the Amazon, until we reach the Manatee Amazon Cruise and receive our warm welcome aboard. On the Manatee, we will be joined by expert local naturalist guides, who will provide us with a brief, informative introduction to the Ecuadorian Amazon; and afterwards guests will have the opportunity to explore our cruise ship and admire the rainforest landscape as we glide down the Napo River. After a delicious dinner, we will take a nighttime forest walk to hear the sounds of the rainforest and observe the nocturnal wildlife.

Jour 02
Pink river dolphins and Secoya community
 In the morning we will explore the lower part of the Napo River, where we will spot different bird species such as eagles, oropendolas, and the celebrated woodpeckers. In the afternoon, we will visit Yasuni National Park, one of the most biodiverse places on the planet and home to the legendary pink dolphin. This is the perfect opportunity to participate in our pink dolphin conservation program, which we are involved in together with the Martinica community in the Cocaya area, providing a safe haven where these dolphins can live and feed without the risk of being hunted. The Secoyas people, a minority ancestral culture, live near Yasuni and will show us how to prepare traditional cassava bread during our visit.
Jour 03
Kichwa family trip

We will begin the day by visiting an authentic Kichwa family on the banks of the Napo River, where we will have the opportunity to learn directly from members of the local community about their lifestyle. We will then board the Manatee and participate in a cooking class with our expert chef, who will show us how to prepare exquisite traditional Ecuadorian fare. Guests are also invited to try their hand at traditional handcrafting or to take in the magnificent Amazon environment from our open-air hot tub, enjoy cocktails at our Bar and Lounge, or delight in some nighttime stargazing from our Observation Deck. Our more active guests will have the opportunity to explore nature in this area by kayak.

Jour 04
Forest Adventure

We start the day by visiting an observation tower built in a giant millenary kapok tree, where guests can marvel at the impressive 360° view from the top overlooking the treetops of the forest canopy and contemplate the sheer vastness of the Amazon. In the afternoon, we will explore the primary forest and spot the different plant and wildlife species endemic to this ecosystem. We can also find the strange and unique bird known as the hoatzin, or as it’s known locally, the “stink bird”.

Jour 05
Return trip

This is where our adventure ends! But first, we will enjoy our return to Puerto Providencia, where we will disembark the Manatee Amazon Cruise and ride back to the city of Coca in the motorized canoe.
