Delfin Cruises are pioneers in the Peruvian Amazon operating three classic luxury river boats – the Delfin I, Delfin II and Delfin III deep inside one of the world’s largest protected flooded forests. Known as the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, this alluring region is mind-blowingly biodiverse, harbouring iconic species ranging from anaconda, spider monkey and tree frogs to rare pink river dolphin and manatee.
The Delfin I is the most intimate of the vessels with just 12 passengers in 4 oversized suites, two with private outdoor whirlpools. The Delfin II has 14 suites, four which are interconnecting, with generous shared spaces including a spa, gym and handicraft boutique. The tri-level Delfin III is the largest and newest in the fleet, carrying 44 passengers in utmost comfort, with access to a central plunge pool, fitness centre and sundeck.
Guests on a voyage aboard any of the Delfin river boats can expect to explore the area on foot, by motorised skiff or in kayaks, led by expert guides. You may also have a chance to enjoy canopy walks, visit an animal rescue centre and scour the jungle at night in search of nocturnal creatures such as caiman, bats and frogs.
