Delfin I Amazon River Cruise

The 8-guest Delfin I is one of the most intimate, luxurious and active vessels from which to experience Amazon Peru. Cruise in splendid harmony through the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve on this 4- or 5-day Amazon cruise aboard the Delfin I, which boasts only 4 suites, each with floor-to-ceiling windows and private balconies—a truly unique Amazon small ship experience.

The rich rainforest ecosystem permeates every aspect of the vessel and operations: irapay leaves (typically seen on residential huts) form the Delfin I’s waterproof roof, lamps made from paiche fish scales adorn common areas, quality woods from the forest form the very boat and suites, and custom-made repellants and lotions made of natural jungle ingredients serve every guest. Itineraries are carefully crafted to showcase the best flora and fauna of the Marañon and Ucayali Rivers in the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve.

Unique to the Delfin I Amazon River Cruise is the opportunity to enjoy a canopy walk, high above the jungle floor. Additional highlights of the Delfin I Amazon River Cruise include added adventure options like stand-up paddleboarding and a fleet of double kayaks, as well as the chance to visit various ribereños, or local residents. Travel past inhabitants of the Amazon and learn how the ribereños are an important part of this complex bionetwork. Hike the Fundo Casual jungle trail on terra firma (non-flooded forest) with guides pointing out Amazon rainforest animals and vegetation. A visit to the Rescue & Rehabilitation Center of River Mammals (ACOBIA) in Iquitos to meet baby manatees and other animals perfectly rounds out this Amazon small ship cruise.

Travel aboard the luxurious 8-guest river vessel Delfin I for comfort, panoramic windows and suites with private terraces, two with cold-water whirlpool baths. This vessel is an AdventureSmith favorite for private charter cruises due to her mix of luxury and her intimate size.

Day 1
THU - Arrive Iquitos, Embark Nauta, Pahuachiro & Nauta Cano

Arrive to Iquitos and be met at the airport then transferred in a comfortable private vehicle to Nauta. Enjoy a boxed lunch on the way. Nauta is a small riverside town on the banks of the Marañon River and was the first city founded in the department of Loreto. Enjoy a VIP greeting at the private port along the shores of the Marañon River where the vessel awaits you.

Aboard Delfin I, qualified staff members introduce you to your exquisite and cozy suite, specially equipped with all the best amenities: orthopedic beds, pure cotton sheets, pillows of 100% pure natural latex, cotton bathrobes, air conditioning and private bathroom with Spanish style hot water showers all framed with a spacious private terrace. Fantastic panoramic views from the third deck observation area are complemented by exotic cocktails made with regional fruits and pisco, the beloved national brandy liquor of Peru. The naturalist guide outlines the journey’s schedule, activities, route, highlights, wildlife and vegetation, geographical and historical background and other useful details to prepare you for your Amazon cruise.

Head down the Marañon River to a location known as Pahuachiro. Spend some time in search of birds and playful monkeys. The naturalist guide spots various creatures. Enjoy great photo opportunities while witnessing the first Amazon Rainforest sunset.

Day 2
FRI - Las Palmas, Yanayacu Pucate, Amazon Natural Park & Yachay

This morning, consider getting up early to appreciate one of the most important zones of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. The early morning hours are the best time of day to watch birds. Jump on the skiffs and head to this area with large trees and old palm trees, watching for several parrot species and a number of other birds. Look for the famous hoatzins nesting a few feet above water, and perhaps a sloth or two of the three-toed kind.

After lunch, cruise through the Yanayacu and Pucate Rivers, peeking into different creeks and lagoons. This is one of the best preserved and protected zones of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. The guide pinpoints all the biodiversity of this region. Consider interacting directly with the waters of the Amazon by going out on a kayak or stand-up paddleboard. Watch for the famous pink river dolphins!

Next, experience the unique opportunity of walking the only canopy walkway in the area—an experience unequaled in the rainforest. At a height of over 85 feet and extending for one-third of a mile, the Canopy Walkway provides a view of the rainforest from the treetops, the best vantage point for observing Amazon wildlife and vegetation. Spread between 14 of the area’s largest rainforest trees, the suspended walkway is one of the longest in the world and is accessible to all, requiring no special skills or equipment. Next, enjoy the terra firma forest and note the differences between your previous hike and this one.

After dinner, visit the village of Yachay, which receives few outside visitors; even fewer come to seek out the Shaman, Carola, healer and spiritual guide to hundreds of jungle dwellers. Pay a visit to Carola for a shaman ceremony.

Next, venture along the Yarapa River and explore the tributary in the kayaks, listening closely for the sounds from within the mysterious jungle. Arrive at the wide creek of Cumaceba that leads to an attractive hidden lagoon. Absorb the beauty of the landscape and reflect on the wildlife. Notice many more inhabitants of the Amazon, the rivereños, who are an important part of this complex bionetwork. Look out for specific types of monkeys like the pygmy marmoset, squirrel monkey and monk saki; a medium-sized monkey with thick fur and bushy tail that looks more like he is dressed for the Arctic than the Amazon.

Activities

Kayaking

Each day, check with your naturalist guide about the day’s weather conditions for the use of kayaks. Water level and weather forecast permitting, you are welcome to register, at your discretion, for the kayak sessions. These sessions will be conducted in calm waters where you can paddle in a very relaxed manner in kayaks ideal for 2 passengers. The kayaking group will always be accompanied by an experienced naturalist guide for the entire duration.

Paddleboarding

Because of the calm, often ripple-less waters of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, paddleboarding is a great activity for all ages. The coolness of the river water over your feet while you paddle past the banks searching for wildlife is an experience you won’t want to miss.

Explorations

All excursions are included with your cruise rate. For all short transport (such as from the vessel to land for hiking) and wildlife seeking excursions, travel is via skiff boats. Skiffs are quick to launch, stable to ride and ready to navigate into the most hidden corners of the Amazon. Each skiff seats 8 passengers and comes with its own expert naturalist guide and captain and abides by all safety regulations.

Nature Walks

Due to the conditions of the wet and humid rainforest, you will be outfitted with waterproof rubber boot rentals (included) for your comfort and convenience. Before each outing, the boots will be provided for you; after each outing, they will be returned to the staff for cleaning. Rain ponchos are also provided for your use.

Fishing

In the depths of the Amazon jungle, deep inside lagoons and creeks, pursue the fierce fishes of the Peruvian Amazon while enjoying the comfort, security and style of a Delfin Amazon Cruise experience. Encounter the ubiquitous piranha, gigantic awe-inspiring Amazon catfish and other exotic sporting species. As a commitment to the environment, there is a strict policy of catch and release.

Community Visits

It is possible to create very intimate experiences with the local native community people. For example, there are many young children and families in communities who have various needs in the absence of their own resources, so any help will be very useful. Kids love t-shirts, pencils, notebooks and toys.

Room Configuration

Single travelers wishing to book a double-occupancy cabin may do so at a 75% in 2020 & 2021 of the per-person listed rate in select cabins upon availability. Triple occupancy may be arranged if needed with a futon bed for a child or adult.

Families & Children

Kids 7 years and older are welcomed aboard all departure dates. Children aged 11 or under at time of departure are eligible for a 20% discount from the adult rate. A third guest on an extra bed is also eligible for a 20% discount (non-cumulative).
