Dawn on the Amazon Riverboats

Selva Viva
for Comfortable Custom Cruises
The Selva Viva is a casual, 65
foot long river boat. A mobile
exploration base camp for a
minimum of four scientists,
biologists, educators and
students, doctors and nurses,
missionaries, fishermen,
aquarium enthusiasts,
birdwatchers, entomologists,
nature lovers, film crews, or
people wanting to add a new
experience to their lives.
The observation deck is an open
shady area that is ideal for keeping
cool and watching life along the
river. You can watch the jungle
glide by, work on your tan, or enjoy
the southern hemisphere's
spectacular night sky.
Dawn on the Amazon is a 33 foot
long river boat powered by a quiet
60 HP 4-stroke Johnson outboard,
for affordable custom cruises. It is
more comfortable than camping and
more of an adventure.

We cook on a four burner propane
gas stove. There is no electricity,
and no refrigeration. We carry live
chickens, ducks, Suri Grubs, and
It has four cabins, sinks, showers,
flush toilets, with a modern kitchen,
bar, and dining room with a view. The
cabins are large, screened, and
comfortable.

Another boat in our small flotilla
Selva Viva is big enough to be comfortable, and small enough to access
the small tributaries where larger cruise ships can not go. We can slip
under the close canopy of the jungle in the small streams where our best
adventures await us.

My Amazon boat carpenters built
her of purple heart wood, with 23
artistic wood carvings of jungle
scenes. A thatch roof provides cool
shade and protection from the
elements. Heavy duty plastic
curtains can be rolled down to
protect against a big rain.

equipped with life jackets,
binoculars, bird books, and maps.
She is safe, comfortable, beautiful

The Ayapua was built in Germany in
1906 during the heart of the rubber
boom and was used to transport
rubber from remote rivers of the
Brazilian and Peruvian Amazon. The
Ayapua was restored from 2004 to
2006. Today the Ayapua looks like a
dream of the rubber barron
Fitzcarraldo’s boat, in the movie Fitzcarraldo.
