Delfin III

Delfin III - The Amazon Luxury Cruise with a Personal Touch

The Delfin III offers 22 suites with the highest levels of comfort for up to 43 passengers, making it the largest vessel in the Delfin fleet.

On the first deck there are 8 Suites complete with floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows as well as 2 spacious Corner Suites facing the front of the ship. The second deck is comprised of 10 Upper Suites and the largest of all, the Owner’s Suite. The top deck features beautiful indoor and outdoor lounge areas, a sundeck with plunge pool, a spa and gym, and of course the bar.

 

Excursions:

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, you will travel via skiff boats. Our skiffs are stable to ride and ready to navigate into the most hidden corners of the Amazon. Each skiff come with their own expert naturalist guide, captain, and features all safety regulations. Excursions and itineraries are dependent on natural and weather conditions and are thus subject to change.

 Trail Walks

The Pacaya Samiria National Reserve is best appreciated in the early hours of the morning, when wildlife is most abundant and active. Trail walks at destinations such as Fundo Casual will take you deep into the rainforest where your guide will point out amazing creatures and vegetation of the Amazon. A local native assistant may also accompany you in order to bring you closer to different animals such as frogs, snakes, and insects. These are light activities and we provide rubber boots and rain ponchos in case of inclement weather.

 Kayaking

Native 16” River Kayaks are available in all our vessels. These kayaks make for excellent opportunities to paddle smoothly and silently into small creeks, tributaries, and lagoons. They have been especially designed with durability and stability for fishing trips, meaning that in the calm waters of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve you are able to gently row downstream. Each kayak seats 2 persons.

 Paddleboarding

Paddleboarding, available on Delfin I & II, is an interactive and exciting way to discover the Amazon. And because of the calm, often ripple-less waters of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, it is an activity suitable for all ages. The coolness of the river water over your feet while you brush past the banks, eyeing wildlife, is an experience you do not want to miss.

 Fishing

Fishing was never more exciting as in the lagoons and creeks of the Upper Amazon jungle, where you can encounter the mighty peacock bass, the gigantic awe-inspiring Amazon catfish, and other exotic sporting species while enjoying the comfort, security, and style of a Delfin Amazon Cruises experience. As part of our commitment to the environment, we exercise a strict policy of catch and release.

 Swimming Near Pink River Dolphins

The pink river dolphin is a rare species found in the freshwater rivers of the Amazon near Iquitos, Peru. They are social, friendly and extremely intelligent creatures, and one of the highlights of a visit to the Amazon Basin. They also love the company of humans. Do not be afraid to go for a swim with these remarkable creatures. Make sure you bring your bathing suit and a waterproof camera. A snapshot of the pink river dolphin will definitely be one for your Amazon adventure scrapbook.

 Birdwatching

The Amazon is second to none when it comes to biodiversity, boasting over 1,500 species of birds —that is 20% of the total number of species on the planet! The Pacaya Samiria National Reserve is especially diverse having little human interference to disrupt the natural habitat. The expeditions set out early in the morning on the skiffs in order to see them at their best. Professional guides from the region and with a deep knowledge of wildlife will accompany you and answer your questions. Whether you bring your camera or just your memory, the experience will surely not disappoint.

 Night Safari

Exploring the jungle by day is only half the fun as the adventures continue past sundown. The sound of the jungle at night is intense, and unlike anything you have ever experienced. Looking up to the sky, the stars are so visible and dense, it is like peering through a window into outer space. The groups are led by our expert guides who will direct your attention to wildlife that often goes unseen. This is your chance to spot the black caimans, bats, frogs, and other nocturnal creatures. The night safaris are a very unique experience and one you will never forget.
