Up-Close Encounters with Amazonian Wildlife
One of the highlights of the Anakonda Amazon Cruise is the opportunity to witness the rich and diverse wildlife that calls the Amazon home. As you navigate freshwater rivers, including both whitewater and black water, you may encounter incredible creatures such as pink river dolphins, manatees, caimans, and piranhas. Keep your camera ready to capture these iconic Amazonian species, along with hundreds of native bird and monkey species.

The cruise also includes stops at observation towers strategically positioned high above the forest canopy, offering you unparalleled vistas of the expansive Amazon rainforest. It’s a photographer’s dream come true.

Meeting the Enigmatic Pink Dolphins
One of the most surprising revelations during your journey on the Anakonda Amazon Cruise is the visit to Yasuni National Park, a pristine section of the Ecuadorian Amazon untouched by human activity. Here, you’ll have the privilege of encountering the famous pink river dolphins, a true symbol of the Amazon’s unique biodiversity. In addition to pink dolphins, you may also spot anacondas, river turtles, and various primate species. Keep an eye out for the colorful hoatzin, a peculiar bird known locally as the “stinking turkey.” Your knowledgeable tour guides will provide fascinating insights not only about the national park but also about the incredible wildlife that inhabits this region.

Embracing the Secoya People’s Culture
While journeying through the Amazon aboard Anakonda amazon cruise, you’ll have the rare opportunity to meet the Secoya people, an 800-member minority residing along the Napo River. Their way of life is deeply intertwined with the rainforest, and they graciously welcome visitors into their world.

Our naturalist guides will introduce you to the community elders, offering you a unique and immersive encounter with this vibrant culture. Learn to say “gee-kay-hey” in the Secoya language as a sign of respect and appreciation for their hospitality.

The Secoya people’s traditions and customs are beautifully reflected in their oral storytelling, material culture, and clothing. Witness the males donning feather crowns as part of their traditional attire. Over the years, they have adapted to their surroundings, blending their culture with craft agriculture. Their sustenance is derived from fishing, hunting, and gathering fruits.

During your visit, you’ll also have the opportunity to participate in the preparation of “Casabe,” a staple dish made from “yuca” or cassava. Join the women of the community as they grate “yuca,” cleanse it in river water, and transform it into a crispy tortilla. This culinary experience provides a deep connection to the Secoya way of life and their reliance on the forest’s resources.

As you explore the community while cruising aboard the Anakonda amazon cruise, you’ll encounter stilt dwellings that adapt to changing river levels, providing a unique insight into the Secoya’s architectural ingenuity. Additionally, you can visit the Secoya school, a humble yet significant space where the next generation receives an education.

The Secoya people are known for their craftsmanship, and you’ll have the chance to admire and even purchase their handmade goods. From intricate weavings and ceramics by women to finely crafted hunting gear, including arrows, spears, boats, flutes, necklaces, and feather crowns by the men – these creations represent not just artistry but a way of life.

As a gesture of authenticity, the Secoya people may apply tribal red paint to your face, allowing you to truly immerse yourself in their culture. This shared experience fosters a sense of community and connection that you’ll carry with you long after your visit while cruising aboard Anakonda amazon cruise.

An Unforgettable Journey Awaits
