M/Y Tucano

The M/Y Tucano is designed for deep forest exploration. With a shallow draft, a fleet of exploration watercraft, and comfortable accommodations, it is the ideal way to discover the see and discover the wonder of the Amazon. Piloted by an expert crew, the M/Y Tucano charts through waterways so remote they are in many cases entirely uncharted. Between outbound excursions, sip a refreshment in the salon, relax on the large observation deck or find a seat on the forward mid-deck balcony.
