Daily Expedition Reports

Daily reports from our days in the field


  • Supay Creek & Iricahua Creek & Piranha Creek

    Today is a day of creeks! There’re so many tributaries of the Amazon to visit, and we have limited time. We’ll try to see as much as we can so today we’ll see three of them. To make the most of our day we began early. Before breakfast we got into the water on our skiffs, under the expertise of our local drivers and guides. Every time we go out we feel like staying a little longer, though the food onboard the Delfin II is so fantastically good that we end up wiling to return.

  • Pacaya & Dorado Rivers

    On this day we explored the furthest points of Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. The places we visited are spectacular! This flooded jungle has its own mirror because the water that flows here is black and still and the clouds and trees reflected on the black still water produce a mirror effect. This jungle is very productive there is a lot of fruiting trees which produce food for fish and the amount of fish of the area sustains an enormous population of fish eating birds such as cormorants, egrets, king fishers, heron and many more.

  • Belluda Creek & Dorado River

    After sailing during part of yesterday afternoon and night, we woke up early this morning to explore before breakfast the Belluda Creek by skiff. The mornings fresh air was full of sounds, and the tops of the trees was full of active birds. Particularly interesting were a group of noisy red-bellied macaws, probably catching up on the previous days gossip.

  • Amazonas community & Clavero Lake

    We are enjoying an amazing weather that has allowed us to arrange outings before breakfast and our guests have enjoyed them so much. This morning we visited Marayali Creek which connects the Marañón and the Ucayali Rivers.  This place is one of the hotspots for birding as we have species of egrets, jacanas, screamer and many species of small song birds that live either on the forest or on floating vegetation.

  • Casual Trail / Nauta Creek

    We left the ship early this morning and before breakfast to explore one of the tributaries of the Amazon by skiff. It was cloudy and dark, but the weather started quickly to improve. We saw right away several individual sloths scattered each one of them on its own tree. All of them totally wet and already positioned on the highest branches of the trees, craving for the morning sun to dry and warm them up.

  • Amazon Natural Park & Yanayaquillo Creek

    This time the great Amazon rainforest received us with rain! It is warm anyway and it did not stop us from going out and exploring the forest. We had ponchos on hand and we headed to the prime rainforest. Here the trees are diverse, some are short and part of the under layer; others are more than a hundred feet tall! They are called the emergent layer.

  • Iricahua Creek & Flor de Castaña

    Our last full day was spent in a marvelous part of the Pacaya Samiria National Reserve. Iricahua Creek is an amazing greenery and flooded forest full of song birds. on the other hand, Flor De Castaña is the opposite, it is a dry forest home to parakeets, wood peckers and night hawks. A lush forest is the source of food for the wildlife and a dry forest is the place where the birds finds nesting sites.

  • Pacaya River & El Dorado River

    After several days sailing on the Amazon and many of its tributaries, this morning we visited the most remote area of our trip to the Papaya River. We left early morning the Delfin II and speeded down the river to try to reach into the heart of Pacaya for breakfast on the boats, but not just a simple breakfast…. A complete, full breakfast that we carried with us in our boats and with extra staff to serve it to us in our seats.

Tis morning we are looking for parrots form the smallest parakeets to large, loud and colorful macaws. The shore of the Ucayali River is also home to many types of raptors, egrets, and wood peckers. This morning we want all of them!

  • San Francisco Village & Clavero Lake

    Today we had the great opportunity to visit a small local community by the river’s edge called San Francisco. Under the tuff conditions these people live we were surprised on how well adapted they are to live from the river and forest that surrounds them, and how friendly and openly they welcomed us to their homes and lives.
