Season

The Anakonda Amazon River Cruise operates year round. Each departure trip is unique, based on the changing seasons. During the high water seasson, when the water levels of rivers and inlets grow, launch boats are able to venture deeper into the flooded forest.
During the low water season, the river recedes to form beautiful sandy river beaches.
