Day Description
May 19, 2018 – Lima, Peru

Today, you’ll arrive in Lima and spend the night at the Costa del Sol Ramada Hotel.

May 20, 2018 – Lima/Iquitos/Nauta/Embark

This morning, you’ll fly to Iquitos and drive by bus to the riverside town of Nauta, where you will embark on the beautiful Delphin II. You’ll be greeted by enthusiastic naturalists who will introduce you to the flora and fauna of the Peruvian Amazon.

May 21, 2018 – Pucate River

The Pucate River is one of the three main rivers in the reserve. Aboard the skiffs and kayaks, you’ll explore this black water stream, looking for parrots, macaws and perhaps monkeys, such as the monk saki with its gray and black body, naked face and long shaggy tail. You might also see the saddle-back tamarin whose high chirping notes can easily be confused with those of a flock of birds.  

May 22, 2018 – Amazon River and Sapuena Village

Today, you’ll see terra firma, a distinct ecosystem within the Amazon. Hike, or travel by skiff, to see the vegetation and wildlife noticeably different from the seasonally flooded forests. Reaching an important junction of the Amazon headwaters, you’ll see where the Ucayali & Marañon rivers merge to form the mighty Amazon River. You’ll also visit the Sapuena Village to learn about the life of the ribereños—those who live on the riverbanks. 

May 23, 2018 – El Dorado River

Explore the river to find the giant Amazonian water lily Victoria regia. This beautiful aquatic plant grows in small lagoons known as cochas. Hike a trail with excellent bird watching, and learn about caciques and oropendolas. At the junction of the El Dorado River, look for dolphins, see abundant birdlife or look for iguanas lazing in the sun and sloths hanging in the upper canopy. Tonight, return to the boat after sunset and explore nocturnal wildlife with a spotlight!

A watch is also kept for squirrel monkeys. We return to Delfin II after sunset in order to see nocturnal life along the river. We will be prepared with a spotlight! 

May 24, 2018 – Atun Poza

Today, explore Atun Poza by skiff, looking for lagoon birds such as egrets, herons, jacamars, ringed kingfishers and various raptors. Continue up the Pacaya River to Yanayacu lagoon, where the waters of this lake originate in the very heart of the Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve. This rainforest is home to red howler and capuchin monkeys, three-toed sloths and numerous species of parrots. Today, with luck, you may swim in the vicinity of Amazonian pink river dolphins! 

May 25, 2018 – Yabauacu Lagoon

You’ll continue exploring by kayak and skiff today, seeing the flowering and fruiting of plants and trees that coincides with the floods of standing water. This is a great time to see the many fish, including piranhas, swim around the trees to feed on the fallen fruit!

May 26, 2018 – Puerto Miguel Village

Today, you’ll stop—by skiff—in Puerto Miguel Village to learn about its culture, traditions and folklore. Back on board, you’ll be delighted with some live music.

May 27, 2018 – Disembark/Nauta/Iquitos/Lima

After lunch today, you’ll disembark and return to Iquitos by bus. If we have time, we will visit the manatee rehabilitation center before flying to Lima, where you will stay at the Costa del Sol Ramada Hotel for the night.
