The Delfin I is a one of a kind expedition vessel in the Peruvian Amazon catering to a maximum of twelve passengers in style and luxury. Delfin Amazon Cruises was dreamt up and eventually founded in 2006 by Peruvian financier and travel enthusiast Aldo Machiavello and his wife Lissy. The couple used their enthusiasm for their beloved country, creative mind-set and fine taste to build this flourishing project, which they continue to oversee. The company takes great pride in the unique environment they are educating their guests on and works closely with the native communities that they come into regular contact with along the way.
The Delfin I has four well-appointed and spacious cabins, divided into two Master Suites and two Deluxe Suites each with spectacular floor to ceiling windows, giving guests panoramic views of the Amazon river and jungle. All four suites feature King beds, private bathrooms, air-conditioning, fine Peruvian cotton linens and a private terrace of 320 square feet. The Deluxe Suites are located on the main deck and boast their own private whirlpool. Dining on the Delfin I is a rich gourmet affair, with the chef conjuring up contemporary Creole plates that set taste buds alive.
Programmes offered are 3 or 4 nights in length, exploring the Pacara Samiria National Reserve from Iquitos in the Peruvian Amazon. Included excursions on-board the Delfin vessels include trail walks, kayaking, fishing, canopy walkways, visits to an animal rehabilitation centre and local communities among other activities. The English-speaking guides are experts on the local area and will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
