Supay Creek, Iricahua Creek, & Yarapa River

Feb 09, 2019 - Delfin II


It was a splendid last day on Delfin II, sailing down the Ucayali River, and then back up the Marañon to Nauta.  We made the most of the floating forest, and partook in no fewer than three skiff excursions, observing woolly monkeys and hoatzins, along with a village visit to San José de Paranapura.  While onboard, we had plenty of entertainment as well – including a pisco sour class, guest slideshow, and live music at the farewell dinner.
