If you Google search “Amazon cruises”, you find Dawn on the Amazon ranks second, (May 1st 2008) and that Dawn on the Amazon Tours and Cruises is the only company on the first search page that owns the Amazon River boats used on the cruises. We build our own boats.

If you Google search “Amazon tours and cruises”, or “Amazon Cruise”, you will find Dawn on the Amazon ranks 3rd and 6th and is the only company listed on the first search page that owns the Amazon River boats used on those cruises. We build our own boats.

We build our own web sites. We take our own photographs. We write our own articles.

We are not a travel agency. We are responsible for our own Amazon Tours and Cruises. We are unique. Choose Dawn on the Amazon for your Amazon tours and cruises.

Not like other companies, we run our own cruises, we build our own boats.

Hey guys, welcome to the Captains blog, for me it is a pleasure to have the opportunity to make a comment about DAWN ON THE AMAZON TOURS AND CRUISES. I studied to be a Computer Professor for 05 years, I couldn`t get a job in my profession because it is very hard to get one in Iquitos, but I got a job with DAWN ON THE AMAZON. I have been with them for 04 months. Since I came here I noticed how superior the services and safety are on our boats. All our boats are insured, and we care about our guests. We try to make you feel at home. Our cruises are personalized, and you get a lot of benefits. I recommend you to join our adventure and enjoy the best way to see our jungle.

Very attractive cruise boats! My son David is a licensed Captain (small boats) and owns business in FLA as Shipwright.
Friends in Belem (missionaries) have asked help in designing and BUILDING a small river boat. Can’t afford the luxurious type that you build, show, and use!

Wish to correspond with someone re: designs, materials, local labor, etc. Thanks much for ANY suggestions. BB.

Hi Basil, thanks for the compliment and the comment. Iquitos, surrounded by water, no roads. Lots of boat builders. I kept my best boat builders in my company, and keep them busy. I know a good dependable, honest boat builder named Irvin, that might be persuaded to build a simple wooden boat, local colectivo style, with a palm thatch roof, 35 feet long for $3000-$3,500, depending on details, finishing touches, type of seating, lock boxes, trim, etc. He works in Belen, speaks great English, French, and Spanish. Doesn’t need supervising. Good guy. Lots of boat builders here, plenty will do it cheaper, but not many can build a better boat.
