With airy staterooms and an expansive, open top deck, Delfin II is more than comfortable as our base for exploring the Amazon.
Delfin II is a stately riverboat, recently built for the express purpose of exploring deep into the Peruvian Amazon at the headwaters of this mighty river—and doing so in modern tropical style.
A gracious riverboat with gorgeous suites
Delfin II comfortably accommodates 28 guests in 10 suites and four master suites. At 120 feet, she is perfectly sized to sail along the upper Amazon River. Her top deck offers an open-air observation lounge with a bar and comfy chairs ideal for relaxing at the day’s end and watching the jungle scenery glide past. The top deck’s air-conditioned presentation room at the stern with large picture windows on three sides is where photo talks and daily Recaps are held. With board games, computer stations, and comfortable seating with a contemporary flair, this room is also perfect for relaxing.
Her public spaces are luxurious and well-appointed, and offer sweeping views of the river and rain forest. Furnishings are made of sustainably harvested local rain forest wood, and the ship is decorated with handicrafts from the ribereños, native people of the wildlife preserve we explore. A gracious hotel staff makes an art of providing impeccable shipboard services.
Skiffs & kayaks for up close exploration
We search for the Amazon’s rare birdlife and mammals, and explore the tributaries that feed these rivers aboard 10-person skiffs that feature individual seats with cushions and plenty of legroom. Our local naturalists, expert in spotting wildlife, join us in the skiffs. Kayaks offer a quiet way to explore remote, seldom-visited side streams.
Dining aboard is an extraordinary event daily. Meals are artfully prepared, and all food served aboard, except for olive oil and balsamic vinegar, is sourced locally. The dining room accommodates all guests at once for a single seating.
