When Do You Want To Go?
Imagine yourself relaxing on the Delfin III, one of the Peruvian Amazon’s most luxurious cruises. Watch the sunset over the upper reaches of the planet’s mightiest river, swim with pink river dolphins, taste some of Peru’s finest delicacies, take skiff rides and hikes through the contrasting dense jungle and crystal blue waters of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve on the lookout for wildlife. What makes the ship special is that it is Peruvian owned and does a lot to support the local communities. The owners are on board the ships once a month, so you will have the chance to talk to them and share your experiences. Delfin III is also one of the first-ever Relais & Chateaux boats, bringing exceptional gastronomy to the pristine surrounds of the Amazon.
Along with its sister ships the Delfin I and Delfin II the Delfin III operates four, five- and seven-day itineraries sailing from Iquitos in the Peruvian Amazon. The ship has 22 suites (Owners Suite, 2 Corner Suites, 19 Standard Suites) and offers the highest levels of comfort with accommodation for 43 passengers. The Delfin III has a good-size massage room and gym with a running machine and cross trainer, as well as yoga mats and weights.
The ship explores the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve which is home to 269 different species of fish (including South America’s biggest freshwater, the paiche that can grow up to 2.5 meters in length, a local speciality that can be enjoyed onboard).
58 endemic species of amphibians, 450 varieties of bird species from the blue and yellow macaw to turkey vultures, black-collared hawks and 5 different types of kingfisher. 132 different species of mammals including the brown-throated sloth, pink river dolphins and 13 species of monkeys. 965 species of plants from the rubber tree to giant water lilies, and numerous palm trees.
Families with children aged 7 years and older are welcome on all departures. Children aged 11 or under are eligible for a 20% discount compared to the adult rate.
“Small-scale accommodation doesn’t get any more luxurious than this on an Amazon River Cruise. The personal service on the Delfin fleet and the outstanding facilities make an Amazon jungle experience especially memorable!”
