Supay Caño & Puerto Miguel, Ucayali River

Dec 16, 2017 - Delfin II

The storm had lasted the whole previous night and the morning looked very gray and bleak. That is exactly the kind of weather that brings wildlife to be active and the wetlands around Supay proved to be a superb place. In about an hour, under a bit of a drizzle, we had recorded some 50 species of birds without moving much than 300 meters from the Delfin II! If you add a few pink dolphins playing around us most of the time, it was a great way to start the day. We returned onboard for breakfast and continued sailing downriver to the little community of Puerto Miguel. In the afternoon we visited the town and a couple of other sites, including a hike to a pond with water lilies and a last skiff ride in a nearby tributary.
