Each unique, and each has a story and a history to share with you and your family. Learn how sugar is extracted, how coffee is roasted and how to get your kids not to giggle when someone says blue-footed boobie. It's scientifically proven to make them do that.

Please note: Due to the multiple stateroom options available on this trip, reservations can only be made by contacting one of our Trip Consultants at 800-462-2848 or via email.
In contrast to our usual land-only based trips, which have similar room categories, the Anakonda Amazon Ship offers two different suite stateroom categories; Deluxe and Standard. The 4 top-tier Deluxe Suites often fill fast so book as early as possible if this is important to you.Also note that beginning July 22, 2018, Ecuador requires all visitors to provide proof of health insurance covering the duration of their stay in Ecuador, including the Galápagos Islands. To meet this requirement, we recommend you have proof of travel insurance that includes medical coverage throughout your time in Ecuador. Please contact your Trip Consultant with any questions.
The earlier you book, the more choice you'll have and the lower your price. And you can always change your mind — you won't be charged to transfer to a different trip before your final payment is due. View cancellation policy.
