- A Few Things - 

Twice each day guests leave the main boat for excursions on 12 foot skiffs. Activities include viewing pink dolphins, Piranha fishing, and observing macaws, parrots, monkeys, snakes and more. Guests also embark on a nature walk and travel to meet villagers that live without any tangible possessions to observe their way of life. Highlights include visiting a floating city, seeing snakes and poisonous frogs and other species that you never even knew existed. An experience aboard the Aqua Expeditions Aria is one that you and your family will never forget.
