South America Amazon Cruise

Delfin II Amazon River Cruise

On this 4- or 5-day Delfin II Amazon River Cruise, explore flooded Peruvian Amazon forests, lakes and lagoons in search of fantastically diverse flora and fauna waiting around every bend. Daily excursions in aluminum skiffs or kayaks reveal a world of colorful wildlife and local communities that have been in the area for generations.

The 28-guest Delfin II is unique among Amazon small ships as being one of the first to have a full fleet of kayaks. Silently traversing flooded forests and waterways where pink and grey dolphins and piranhas swim is an Amazon cruise experience like no other. Overhead, during hikes and paddles, troops of monkeys and marmosets, colorful birds and insects fill the upper canopy. Nothing is missed between excursions thanks to Delfin’s panoramic windows in every suite and common area.

The Peruvian Amazon is not only a wildlife mecca, it is also home to communities that have endured centuries of high- and low-water seasons. Local villagers offer amazing arts and crafts and the opportunity to learn about their way of life. Connect with Amazonian people on this intimate and relaxing small ship cruise. Hike and partake in paddling activities with the Delfin II’s full fleet of kayaks.
