DELFIN II

Day 1:

AM: Arrive to the Amazon city of Iquitos:
Our crew will be expecting your arrival at the airport, then transfer all together by our comfortable private vehicle. We will start you off with a lunchbox as we begin a panoramic tour of Iquitos city. After the tour we will travel over paved road to the city of Nauta, 95 kilometers away. Nauta is literally the "end of the road" where you will embark on the Delfin. Along the way, you will see vibrant "terra firma" (nonflooded forest) and various aspects of daily jungle life

Arrive to Nauta port:
Nauta is a small riverside town on the banks of the Marañon River and was the first city founded in the department of Loreto. Once we reach Nauta, you will enjoy a VIP greeting at our private port along the shores of the Marañon River where the vessel awaits you.

Embarkation:
Aboard Delfin, you will be served by our qualified staff who will introduce you to your exquisite and cozy suite, specially equipped with all the amenities for the experienced traveler as ourself. Orthopedic beds, pure cotton sheets, pillows of 100% pure natural latex, cotton bathrobes, air conditioning, and private athroom with Spanish style hot water showers.

Orientation:
While the Delfin begins its initial navigation, you will enjoy the most fantastic panoramic views from the elegantly outfitted outdoor observation area located on our second 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 second deck also features an outdoor lounge area perfect for relaxing during your time in the Amazon with us. To one end, there is 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. At the other end is a library with extensive literature about the area (fauna, flora, etc.) is available for your perusal.

New to the Delfin II as well is an indoor lounge & presentation room which offers use for lectures by your natural guides and film presentations. Games are available for your enjoyment during your time on board, such as chess, checkers, and other popular contemporary pastimes. All decorative elements have been carefully and lovingly elected to reflect the aesthetics and soul of Amazonia.

PM: Yacapana Island the birthplace of the Amazon:
As we begin sailing downstream, we will pass by Yacapana Island. Here we can see the confluence of the Ucayali and Maranon, birthplace of the Amazon River.

Day 2:

AM: Belluda Caño Creek:
Early today, you will head for this spectacular tributary spot within the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve in our skiffs where you will also experience an unforgettable encounter with gray and pink river dolphins. As well, the day's birds will be out and active, flying gracefully across the Amazon skies.

PM: Dorado River:
On the river, you will see abundant wildlife and nature in all of its exuberance while we search for the Amazon River’s transitional forest specialties such as snail kites, festive parrots, endangered scarlet macaws, olive spotted hummingbirds, Amazonian parrots and wood creepers, among others. Try your hand at piranha fishing as well during sunset. When the night shift strikes, you’ll encounter a whole new world of adventure! As night approaches, your guide will take you on a night safari in search of caiman alligators and night birds.

Day 3:

AM: Yarapa River:
Never does nature seem more beautiful than in the tropics. In this opportunity you will have the chance to explore one of our main cores of the National Reserve. Wild life will be the one to greet you and biodiversity will be outstanding. On board our aluminum skiffs we will have the chance to get deep into the rainforest and its fantastic diversity of flora and fauna. You will have the chance to enjoy some of the myriad bird species, colorful butterflies and other diverse insects, noisy monkey troops and active pink and grey river dolphins. Enjoy the black river waters and discover this mysterious and bountiful destination.

Next, you will visit the community of Puerto Miguel to meet local villagers who have called Amazonia their home for generations. You may step into a typical schoolhouse where the children will be very happy to have visitors, and then stop by an area to see the women of this community who have a most amazing arts & craft market.

PM: Fundo Casual:
We start the afternoon in 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, we will explore Nauta Caño Creek and its various delights via skiff. Your guide will point out animals such as the slow moving sloths, various bird species, and perhaps even squealing monkeys! If you wish, you can also kayak through the calm waters this afternoon, skimming the riverbanks on your own to play your own game of “I spy”. As night falls, our guides will take you on another night safari

Day 4:

AM: Disembarkation:
With heavy hearts, the staff will wish you farewell as you begin your departure. At the port of Nauta, our ground crew will be waiting to take you by our private vehicle back to the city of Iquitos, about 95 kilometers journey by paved road.

The Rescue & Rehabilitation Center of River Mammals (ACOBIA):
On our way from Nauta back to Iquitos airport, you will visit the Rescue & Rehabilitation Center of River Mammals (ACOBIA) where you will have the chance to meet baby manatees and learn about these wonderful and docile creatures and why they are on the endangered species list. You will also have the chance to pet and feed these kind manatees. As well, there are also some other animals cared for by the center that have been rescued from capture for the intention of being turned into pets and other threatening conditions. We welcome you to donate to this ambitious organization and education center as you wish. Our land personnel will wait for you at the airport and give your boarding passes and help you check in.

Airport departure: Our staff will be on hand to help you with your luggage and check in at Crnl. FAP Francisco Secada Vignetta International Airport in Iquitos.
