Details of Amazon Jungle Luxury Cruise - Delfin I

DAY ONE

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 to the city of Nauta, 95 kilometers away.  Nauta is a small riverside town on the banks of the Marañon River, you will enjoy a VIP greeting at our private port along the shores of the Marañon River where the vessel awaits you.

PM: Embarkation: Aboard Delfin I, you will be served by our qualified staff who will introduce you to your exquisite and cozy suite. Happy Hour and orientation: While the Delfin begins its initial navigation, you will enjoy the most fantastic panoramic views. 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.

PM Pauhuachiro: Our first excursion will be done by skiff where we visit our first location populated by sloths, iguanas, and recently a new favorite location for anteaters. Birdwatchers are likely to check off their bucket list, the yellow caciques and the very elegant egrets.


DAY TWO

AM: Fundo Casual: This morning, we recommend getting up early to appreciate the wildlife, since animals 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. 

PM: Yanayacu Pucate: In the afternoon, you will start cruising 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. Your guide will use his expert eye to pinpoint all the biodiversity of this region. You will even have the opportunity to swim in the jungle river along with the famous pink dolphins!


DAY THREE

AM: Amazon Park: Begin your morning with an adventurous journey to visit to a private reserve complete with 8 hanging bridges 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. 

PM: Nauta Caño Creek: In the afternoon, continue exploring 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 approaches, your guide will take you on
a night safari in search of caiman alligators and night birds.


DAY FOUR

AM: San Francisco: On board skiffs, you will visit the community of San Francisco 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. Then stop by an area to see the women of this community and their amazing arts and crafts market. We return to our vessel to continue our sailing downstream to the final destination, passing by Yacapana Island. Here we can see the confluence of the Ucayali and Maranon, birthplace of the Amazon River

Disembarkation: 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.
