Dinner is served in our 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 your first rainforest adventure, the Delfin I is also a unique culinary experience, offering the best of Amazonian-Peruvian cuisine in a cosmopolitan gourmet setting.

Delfin Amazon Cruises

Day 2  San Isidro flooded forest hike & Yanayacu/Pucate River (breakfast – lunch – dinner)

07:00 am. Breakfast – Buffet

08:00 am. Hiking at San Isidro:

Today we will hike through this pristine and unique flooded ecosystem, passing through a classic tropical rainforest with emergent trees and canopy trees reaching up to 55 meters in height. Many trees have buttress roots which often extend high up the trunks while palms are abundant and many of them have stilt roots. Biologically, this kind of forest is probably one of the richest habitats on earth, supporting the most species of plants and animals per unit area. Our target is the giant ceiba or kapok tree with its large diameter. We also find local medicinal plants and encounter them while hiking. This forest is also very good for spotting birds such as the bluish-fronted jacamar seen in pairs in middle and lower parts of forest edges, or collared trogons, red capped cardinals, etc.

11:00 am. Back aboard the Delfin I
We will continue upstream towards our next destination.

12:30 pm. Lunch
After emerging from the depths of the forest, you will be treated to a world-class gourmet meal.

On board of our aluminum skiff 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.

Delfin Amazon Cruises Program

 

Day 3 Canopy walk/ primary forest hike, Tawampa Lake /Nauta Caño exploration (breakfast – lunch – dinner)

07:00 am. Breakfast – Buffet
You will get used to our wonderful breakfast festival, with all natural juices and really exotic fresh food that our kitchen personnel will point you, we are sure that you have never tasted some of them.

08:00 am. Private Reserve “La Posada” canopy walk.

This is a unique opportunity; you will get to the only Canopy Walkway in this area, an experience unequaled in the rainforest! At a height of over 25 meters (85 feet) and extending for 500 meters (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. The Canopy Walkway is accessible to all and requires no special skills or equipment. The suspended walkway is spread between 14 of the area's largest rainforest trees and is one of the longest canopy walkways in the world. You´ll enjoy “terra firma” forest and you will be able to see the differences between your previous hike and this one. We will be canoeing back through the Tawampa Lake where you will possibly be able to observe giant arapaima, the largest fresh water fish in the world.

10:30. Back aboard the Delfin I
We will continue our upstream navigation towards the formation of the Amazon River.


01:00 pm. Lunch

To continue with your unique adventure, our creative chef will continue to amaze you with the innovative creations he has designed for you. While explaining every detail of the local food, you will learn more and more about life in this pristine and unique area.

 

04:00 pm. Nauta Caño Exploration, fishing experience & night safari
At this time we will have the chance to explore this small creek, its lagoons, and its wonderful dynamic and stunning panoramas. Cruising is the best way to experience the diversity of the wildlife that populates the rivers and their neighboring habitats. We will sail quietly near shore, exploring marshes, streams and oxbows. On board our excursion skiffs, we will head to a beautiful lake for a spectacular fishing spot, where we expect to catch some fish; the target again, will be “piranhas”. During the rainier season, river flood and low forest have more than 1 meter (3 ft.) of water standing at the base of the trees. Flowering and fruiting time coincide with this flooding, fish including piranhas swim in among the base of the trees to devour the fruit or chew at their outer coverings. So the undeserved “super-carnivore” reputation of piranhas as a bloody thirsty fish is really exaggerated. There are 25 different species of piranha in the Amazon basin, black, white, red bellied. They are so smart and fun to catch.


06:00 pm. Back aboard the Delfin I

We will continue to our next destination.

08:00 pm. Dinner
We will continue to surprise you with the variety of our menu.
