Happy Hour and orientation:
While the Delfin begins its initial navigation, you will enjoy the most fantastic panoramic views from the elegantly outfitted observation area located on our third deck. Our bartender will be waiting to serve you with an exotic cocktail made with regional fruits and pisco, the beloved national brandy liquor of Peru. Then, your naturalist guide will give you an overview of your journey's schedule, activities, route, highlights, wildlife and vegetation to keep your eye out for, geographical and historical background, and other useful details.

The third deck features an entertainment center hich offers use for film presentations, as well as extensive literature about the area (fauna, flora, etc.) There is also a completely equipped bar so you can test any combination of regional and international liquors and aromas that the bartender will be happy to provide for you to enjoy under the spell of the beautiful Amazonian afternoons and night, and the sweet breeze of the rainforest.

Day 2:

AM: Fundo Casual:
This morning, we recommend getting up early to appreciate the wildlife. Early rising is always rewarding since animal are most abundant and active with the rising of the sun. This is one of the most important zones of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. The walk at Fundo Casual jungle trail will take you deep into the rainforest on terra firme (non-flooded forest) where your guide will point out the dynamic creatures and vegetation of the Amazon. Be sure to keep an attentive eye open for identifying surprises!

In the afternoon, you will start cruising through theYanayacu and Pucate Rivers, peeking into different creeks and lagoons. This isone of the best preserved and protected zones of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. Your guide will use his expert eye to pinpoint all the biodiversity of this region.

Begin your morning with an adventurous journey to visit to a private reserve complete with 8 hangingbridges high up in the rainforest canopy. To get there, you will walk through primary forest and paddle slowly through tranquil Tahuampa Lake, a black water lagoon with giant arapaima fishes (known locally as paiche) and with luck, you might hear them jumping up to breathe the crisp dawn air. The suspension bridges will give you a peek into the life and riches up in the treetops for many of the Amazon's animals. A symphony of sounds will surely enchant your ears.

PM: Nauta Caño Creek:
In the afternoon, continue exploring Nauta Caño Creek and itsvarious delights via skiff. Your guide will point out animals such as the slow moving sloths, various bird species, and perhaps even squealing monkeys!

As night approaches, your guide will take you on a night safari in search of caiman alligators and night birds.

Day 4:
