Dive Into Adventure

Welcome to Aqua Expeditions

What Our Guests are Saying

From the delicious local cuisine, to the beautiful accommodations onboard Aria Amazon, to the rich culture of the remaining indigenous people; my journey into the heart of the Peruvian flooded forest, an enormous river system converging into vast flooded plains and forest, is truly a hidden emerald green treasure. This exploration with Aqua reminded me there are still untouched areas of significant biodiversity in the Amazon rainforest, where we need to be the beacons of hope protecting these special places for a more sustainable future. After journeys like this, I am inspired with the greatest sense of hope that we will continue to all work together and keep in motion the many solutions already in place for keeping this magnificent, vital river system alive and thriving.”

“It’s the end of only my first day out on the longest river in the world, as part of a cruise that sails from the town of Iquitos, Peru – known as the gateway to the Amazon, a two-hour flight north of the country’s capital, Lima – with a mission responsibly to introduce visitors to the flora and fauna that popular not only its depths, but also the acres of lush, rolling rainforest and jungle through which the river flows.”
