AQUA Luxury Cruise Vessel | From US$ 161,000 /wk
Luxury yacht AQUA is a Custom built 2007 motor vessel that is based in the amazing area of Iquitos, Peru, South America. She can accommodate 24 guests and her caring crew of 14 is complemented by three skilled guides.
A privilege few guests will ever have the opportunity to charter M/V AQUA in a voyage of a lifetime, sailing the earth’s mightiest river — the Amazon. The first luxury vessel in the region, the motor vessel Aqua caters to the most discerning and adventurous of world travelers, providing an unforgettable journey into some of the worlds most unique areas.
You will start your journey through the wild Amazon region in Iquitos, so remote that it can be reached only by air or water (just a one hour and 40 minute flight from Lima). As your ship docks along the river, knowledgeable and experienced naturalists will take you, via small launches, into remote estuaries in the Peruvian rain forest and the Pacaya Samiria Reserve. As you explore these pristine wilderness areas teeming with wildlife and amazing plant life, you will also encounter local people living in villages as they have for centuries. And when the day’s sightseeing is over, the comforts of your luxurious floating hotel will await you.
The yachts communal areas include a dinning room, Indoor Bar-Lounge, Observation Deck and Outside Lounge.
Aqua’s Dining room has panoramic views into the great wilderness. Fine china and crystal and superb service are part of the experience, similar to what you would expect from a fine dining restaurant in Lima. Executive chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, one of Lima’s culinary stars, has created a menu that draws on both Peruvian and European influence.
Luxury Motor vessel Aqua also has an air-conditioned indoor bar where you can relax between Amazon adventures, or enjoy a pre- or post-dinner cocktail.
There is also plenty of outdoor space on M/V AQUA. The generous top-level Observation Deck offers sunbathing, space for reading a good book, enjoying some down time after an excursion, or simply watching the river go by.
