Just when we were beginning to relax at sea and forget about pirates, a new band of “bandits” are out there!

Aqua Expeditions has captured the Amazon River Bandits.  The CEO of the company, Francesco Galli-Zurgaro through Peruvian news agencies, announced the capture of six armed “bandits” who robbed passengers on July 26th on the river vessel cruising the Amazon in Peru.

All of the crew and passengers involved were not harmed, and passegers continued with their Peruvian travel.

The Aqua riverboat accommodates twenty-four passengers, and cruises are continuing as planned reports travel publication Travel Pulse.

Mr. Galli-Zurgaro’s company has instigated measures to prevent any further incidents which includes the “discreet stationing of security personnel on board”.

Aqua Expeditions feels the quick action in apprehending the “Amazon pirates” will bring a close to any future situations.
