No single supplement will be charged if the passenger is willing to share with another same sex passenger. Guests may request single occupancy with a fare supplement of 40% of the cruise cost. Single accommodations on the cruise may not always be available. The single cabins on the boat are not as large as the double cabins.
Some of the cabins on the M/Y Tucano can accept three travelers. This is helpful for families. In cabins "3" and "4" a third narrow bed can be placed between the single beds. Cabin "0" has a queen size bed and also a single bed. There is no discount for triple occupancy; passengers pay the double rate.
Unless specific cabins are reserved when passengers sign up for a trip, cabin assignments are made at our discretion. Subject to availability, the larger cabins on board the vessel are assigned without additional charge. If however, two passengers would like to guarantee a particular cabin, there is a reservation fee of $300 per cabin. Cabin reservations are on a first come/ first serve basis and are subject to availability. All of the cabins on Tucano are outside cabins with windows, private baths, air conditioning, and hot water showers. Four of the cabins are larger than the others and have single size beds side by side. These are cabins numbered 3, 4, 5 and 6. In order to accommodate parties of three travelers, we are able to insert a third narrow bed. Cabin "0", has a queen size bed beside a single bed. Four cabins have a single size mattress above and a single sized mattress below. These are cabins numbered 1, 2, 7 and 8. Please note that passengers that have chosen single accommodations and pay the single supplement will be assigned one of the smaller cabins. Passengers that travel as singles and are willing to share accommodations may not reserve a particular cabin.
Discounts for Children
On regular departures children 14 years and under who share a room with an adult are eligible for a discount of 20% off the Cruise Rate, subject to cabin availability.
All of our trips are family friendly, but the scheduled "Family Departures" include some additional activities suitable for children. On these departures children 14 years and younger can travel at a discount of 50% from the Rate.
Airport Transfers in Manaus
Airport transfers are included in the cruise cost no matter when the passengers arrive. All airport transfers are to and from the international airport and the Hotel Tropical, Manaus.

Optional tour of Manaus
A three hour early morning tour of Manaus is available at the end of the trip for the cost of $60. The tour consists of a visit to the boisterous Mercado Municipal of Manaus and the Teatro da Amazonas, the famed opera house of the Amazon. Included are the services of an English speaking guide, entrance fees, and transportation to and from the Hotel Tropical. Please note that most museums are closed on Sundays and Holidays.
Please contact us regarding chartering the vessel. A charter is when your family or your group plans a trip on the Tucano for yourselves alone. It is perfect for a family trip, a group special, or for a company retreat. The vessel is available for charter throughout the year. An itinerary customized to your interests and also budget is feasible. Since there are countless interesting places to go in the Amazon we can be assured of operating an interesting itinerary.
