Serena Winn-Darley shares five reasons why you ought to explore the Peruvian Amazon by boat. 


Delfin III Peru Amazon

1. Luxurious comfort

Comfort in the Amazon is hard to come by but is effortlessly achieved aboard Delfin III. Few places in the Amazon can offer the unique blend of untamed jungle immersion combined with the luxury of a floating sanctuary where you are welcomed with refreshing drinks, icy cold towels and your elegant, air-conditioned suite. 

2. Connection with the scenery

From rising in your suite with floor to ceiling glass views over the Maranon River to watching the sun descend behind the jungle, on a boat you move with the living pulse of the Amazon. Gaze at pink dolphins cruising through the water or catch a glimpse of monkeys swinging on the trees and feel part of the natural scenery of the Peruvian Amazon, all whilst enjoying the serene pace of a river cruise.

3. Intimate wildlife encounters

You can navigate to remote areas which can only be reached by boat, providing privileged access to pristine ecosystems where wildlife flourishes undisturbed with no other boat or tourist in sight. Revel in the solitude and hop aboard one of the skiffs to venture deeper into the shallow waters, keeping an eye out for a caiman.

4. Exceptional staff

Their knowledge, friendliness and passion for the Peruvian Amazon is unrivalled and their zest for life fills the decks of Delfin III. With most of the staff raised in the region, they have a real connection to the Peruvian Amazon, which makes for an amazing Amazonian adventure. You can also look forward to excellent meals showcasing some of the most delicious local produce!


5. Unique perspective

Contemplating the Peruvian Amazon rainforest by water on a luxury cruise is an experience that will stay with you forever. Delfin III is all about disconnecting; putting your phone aside, switching off from the outside world and drinking in a new environment. The splendour of the world’s largest river, its tantalizing sunrises and sunsets and all the life that surrounds the Peruvian Amazon is right there before your eyes.
