The Boat

Safety and comfort exploring the wild

A great 34-meter three-masted sailing ship, providing the highest standard service available in exploring the Amazon with privacy, comfort and the unique intimacy of sharing the experience of a lifetime with a handful of new-found friends.

Comfort

M/V Desafio offers the comfort of a pre-arranged group program and the joy of personal discovery. Small enough for everyone to be on a first-name basis; our passengers feel at home in the heart of the Amazon.

Safety

Our specialized hosts are glad to tell the travelers every single detail of the wild life, the flora, the flooding and the torrential rainfalls from November to March as well as the low water level of the Amazon during the rest of the year.
