The Delfin II is an elegant small expedition vessel in the Peruvian Amazon catering to a maximum of thirty 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 educate their guests on and continues to work closely with the native communities that they come into regular contact with along the way.
The Delfin II has fourteen well-appointed and spacious cabins, divided into four Master Suites and ten Suites. Each Suite has a large window similar in size to a cinema-screen, allowing guests the opportunity to wake up to the breath-taking sunrises of the majestic Amazon river. Located at the front of the vessel, the Master Suites have panoramic windows for the most impressive cabin views. All suites feature King beds, private bathrooms, air-conditioning and fine Peruvian cotton linens. Communal spaces on board the ship include a large observation deck and lounge, dining room, gymnasium, spa room, library and lecture lounge. Dining on the Delfin II 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.
