Amazon Explorer

Postby bmxpert99 » Thu Mar 22, 2007 12:45 am

Some friends and i are exremely interested in booking the Amazon Explorer trip (PVIIL). However, i noticed there are no dates available in June, July, Aug, or Sept. Is this because of seasonal weather, or availability? We were hoping to take a trip in June to the Amazon. I would appreciate any input. thank you...

Hello!

We are not offering the Amazon Explorer tour in the summer as the rainiest months in the Amazon Basin are June through August with the driest months being October - December. We hope that you will be able to join us on one of our Fall Departures or if time permits, we'd love to see you on our May 12 - May 20 departure!

Happy Trails,

Jodi

I just got back from this trip and let me tell you, it was AMAZING.

The food was great on the ship, we had tons of excursions, saw tons of wildlife and got to interact with the locals in the villages.

The cabins were very comfortable and the staff were very nice too.

I would only say that the night walk was not long enough, but I guess the amount of insects bothered some of the group.

I think my favorite part of the trip was fishing for Piranhas.

Yellow Vulture,
Thank you for answering. How was the weather? What would you recommend as far as clothing for the trip? Did people use flashlights or headlamps for the night walks? How long where they?

I am so excited to hear everything.
