Marañon River, Peru

Jan 15, 2019 - Delfin II


For many, wildlife sightings are the main reason to come to the Amazon.  Today, we saw an incredible amount of wildlife, from monkeys to the tiniest poison dart frogs.  Dolphins were around the ship for much of the day, sloths were spotted actually moving around, and parrots and parakeets swarmed overhead.   As well, the weather cooperated perfectly with gorgeous excursions in the morning and afternoon and a mid-day thunderstorm to drop the temperature.

Mike learned early on that the best way to escape Ohio was to become a marine biologist.  During college at Wittenberg University he attended a semester at Duke University's Marine Lab — that time only confirmed his love for all things oceanic and maritime.  After graduation, Mike promptly moved to Catalina Island in California where he taught marine biology to school kids.  Since 1999, Mike has been working and traveling chasing his three loves: marine critters, photography, and birds.
