The Delfin II is built in the style of a classic 19th-century Amazon River vessel. On four- or five-day sailings, the vessel visits the pristine Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve, one of the best areas for wildlife viewing in Peru's northern Amazon region. Here you’ll find a healthy population of sloths, among many other species.

The boat’s observation deck and lounge is very spacious with a wooden floor, comfortable reclining chairs, a fully stocked bar, and TV with DVD and video. The cozy dining room is air-conditioned with large panoramic windows and you can see through to the kitchen where you can watch the resident chef in action. There’s also a gym, massage room, and lecture room.

When not cruising the quiet tributaries of the reserve, you can choose from a variety of shore landings and water-themed activities, including kayaking, paddleboarding, and guided wildlife walks.


There are 14 suite cabins in total, spread over two decks, each with a private bathroom, shower, and air-conditioning. The standard Suites are side-facing with panoramic windows. At the front of each deck there are two Master Suites with panoramic windows giving you side and forward views from the boat.
