Although expedition cruising by its very nature is characterized as adventurous, the safety of our staff and passengers is of paramount importance to us. The Manatee Amazon Explorer is fully equipped and maintained in order to handle the most challenging conditions and circumstances, and is manned by experienced and conscientious expedition staff and crew. The canoes used for daily shore landings are rugged and versatile and are operated responsibly by experienced personnel. Onboard you will be fully briefed on all pertinent safety issues and concerns, as well as our environmental policy; passengers also receive appropriate and detailed briefings before each landing.
The vessel features three decks:
- The MAIN DECK features a dining area, kitchen, the crew’s cabins, and the engine room.
- The UPPER DECK has 10 cabins including crew cabins.
- The SUN DECK houses the bridge, 4 cabins, the bar and lounge, and an outdoor dining area.

Each cabin is equipped with air conditioning, closets, a private bathroom complete with a special shower massage, hot and cold water, 24-hour electricity and 110-voltage outlets and switches.
