Delfin II Amazon Riverboat: Detailed Itinerary

Day 1
Arrive Iquitos & Embark Nauta

PM: Arrive Iquitos & Embark Nauta

After arriving at Iquitos International Airport, you will be assisted by Delfin II guides and transported by bus for about 1½ hours to Nauta. Nauta lies between Iquitos and the Marañon River, where the Delfin II is waiting for you. Upon boarding the Delfin II your experienced crew will help you settle into your stateroom, and introduce you to their extraordinary vessel. Upon embarking, it will soon be clear that you're traveling where few have gone before. You are now part of a select group of seasoned world travelers who visit remote Pacaya-Samiria Reserve, 5 million acres of protected, flooded forest, roughly the size of a small Central American country.

Dinner is served in the cozy dining room located at the back of the ship’s second deck. Because of its cultural diversity, Peruvian cuisine is considered one of the world’s finest, making the country an attractive culinary destination. Aside from providing you with a rainforest adventure, the Delfin II is also a unique culinary experience, offering the best of Amazonian - Peruvian cuisine in a cosmopolitan gourmet setting. Delfin's chef prides himself in serving dishes in different styles and seasoned with a wide variety of herbs and spices, as well as exotic fruits. After dinner, your guides will use charts and short videos to conduct a brief orientation outlining the details of your journey, including the places you will visit, the wildlife you will see, as well as a summary of the history and geography of the Amazon basin. Finally, fall under the spell of the beauty of an Amazonian night filled with hundreds of stars.

Day 4
Pacaya River / Zapote River

AM: Pacaya River

After breakfast you will have reached the Pacaya River at the very heart of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. This is Peru’s largest protected area with a mean annual rainfall of nearly 118 inches (3,000 millimeters) and by far the largest protected wetland reserve in the world. It is filled with lakes, palm swamps, and streams. The reserve becomes a flooded forest in the rainy season and is sure to be one of the most beautiful places you’ll ever visit. You will also have the chance to swim in one of the pristine Amazon lagoons in this wonderful region.

PM: Zapote River

The morning is a perfect time for kayaking along the calm and inspiring rainforest waters of Zapote River. Prehistoric-looking iguanas laze in the sun as you travel along the shoreline searching for whatever the jungle has to offer. Squirrel monkeys are very active at this time of the day, when they move in large groups at mid- to upper- levels of primary and secondary lowland forest. As you float and paddle down the river, see if you can spot some elusive creatures on your own.
