The glory days of Amazon riverboat history are coming to an end. The two most historically important boats plying its waters the M/F Clavero and the M/F Ayapua are being retired in 2014. But for now, these beautifully restored reminders of the magnificent opulence of the Rubber Boom are still carrying passengers on the most unforgettable trip of a lifetime-deep into the remote regions of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve of Peru.

Steamboats in the late 19th century and early 20th century opened up the previously isolated upper Amazon.

The M/F Ayapua, named after Lake Ayapua in Brazil, was built in Hamburg, Germany in 1906 and transported rubber along the Purus, Japua, Jura, Putumayo and Yavari rivers in Brazil and Peru during the early part of the 20th century. Restoration work was undertaken from 2004 to 2006.

The M/F Clavero, is a historic naval boat of the Peruvian Amazon and is the oldest boat still traveling on the Amazon River. The Clavero was built in Paris, France, in 1878 and its original name was the Cahuapanas. The Peruvian Navy bought her in 1892 to be used on the Amazon. Restoration work has been on-going for several years.

In 2014 these two riverboats will become part of a maritime museum in Iquitos, Peru, preserving an important part of Amazon history for all to see.

Through the remainder of 2013 the Ayapua and the Clavero will continue to ply the upper Amazon with travelers interested in wildlife and adventure. Seeing the Amazon in all its magnificence the river, the rainforest, the wildlife, people and customs from the comfort of ships that have been such a part of the history of the Amazon Basin is an experience unlike any other. Surrounded by the trappings of a bygone era, one can actually feel what it was like to be traveling the Amazon in the early 1900's. It’s almost like starring in a movie! From the picturesque bar and dining room to the air-conditioned Victorian-style cabins, these riverboats evoke all the charm of a bygone era.
