Daily Expedition Reports

Daily reports from our days in the field


  • Supay, Iricahua, Yarapa River

    On our last day exploring the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, we started by exploring Supay River. We cruised on the skiffs along this river, before breakfast. A cool breeze was felt as we began spotting green iguanas taking advantage of the first sun rays. Different species of birds, such as white-headed marsh tyrants, black-crown night herons and a big flock of migratory purple martins were seen along the marsh area of this small tributary.

  • Pacaya River and Magdalena Creek

    We woke up at the crack of dawn and loaded the skiffs. During the night we had arrived close to the mouth of the Pacaya River. The sun rays began to reveal a lush forest covered with snowy egrets. As they took off from their perch, the sky was painted with white.

    Today we visited the small community of San Francisco, on the river’s edge. It’s always an eye-opening experience to get to see how people make a living in these remote areas.

  • Yanayacu, Pucate & Amazon Natural Park

    Early this morning, we explored one of the tributaries of the Amazon by skiff. Before venturing into the very vast network of lakes, canals and tributaries of the Amazon, we stopped at the park-ranger station to check in. As we waited a little for everyone to sign the visitors book, an older gentleman in his tiny dugout canoe went by, stopping briefly to proudly show us his catch. In the floor of his little canoe lay a good number of small, and still alive fish. Considering how early in the morning it was, and that the fish very much still alive, one of our guests asked how long it had taken him to catch all this fish, and he responded about one hour. The Amazon is truly teeming with life.

  • Casual & Nauta Caño

    On our first day in the Upper Amazon, we started our adventure very early morning by exploring one of the many tributaries of the upper Amazon River by skiff. The skiffs truly make the experience a very enjoyable one, especially with the aid of our experienced drivers and naturalists. With our skiffs, we can really get up close and personal with the flooded forest. The drivers maneuver the long skiffs with ease, and our local naturalists can make the invisible wildlife visible to us.

  • Supay, Iricahua, and Yarapa River

    Our final day exploring the Upper Amazon began with a lovely sunrise. Delfin II spent the night near the mouth of the Supay River. We could hear the call of birds, so we loaded onto watercraft to go and explore this river before breakfast.

  • Pacaya River and Magdalena Lagoon

    Our day began with a gentle rain. It didn’t discourage us to go out and explore the Pacaya Samiria Wildlife Reserve. Our plan was to leave just at sunrise and go deep inside the reserve.

  • Belluda Creek and Dorado River

    Our day began with a pre-breakfast exploring session along the Ucayali River. Several species of birds were getting ready to take off from their evening perch. A myriad of calls from the surrounding wildlife filled the air. It was a fitting way to start another great morning in the Amazon.

  • Marañon Ucayalli Rivers & San Jorge Community

    Today we had the special opportunity to visit a small community adjacent to the San Jorge River. It is an eye-opening experience to get to visit the people who live in such remote areas. It is fascinating to see how closely they have learned to live with their environment, and how little they need to be happy. They received us with open arms and big smiles. We got the chance to see their homes, the school, and to learn about what they are doing to improve their living through a local organization called Minga Peru.
