Once again, our guests aboard Delfin II set off to explore the Amazon. Today’s journey led us to the vibrant Amazonas Community along the Maranon River. Here, we were graciously welcomed by the community's women leaders, who proudly shared their groundbreaking initiatives in healthcare, entrepreneurship, leadership, and sustainability. As we strolled through the community, the spirited voices of its youth resonated, sharing their projects and dreams. This visit highlighted the profound impact that the Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic Fund has on these thriving communities.

In the warm glow of the afternoon, our expedition took an exciting turn. Departing at 4:00 p.m. in skiffs, we delved into Piranha Creek, a slender tributary overflowing with nature's wonders. Our journey led to the Great Confluence, where we gathered in our skiffs on the vast waters. Amid the serene flow of the mighty Amazon River, bottles of sparkling wine were opened. We toasted to our exceptional expedition, savoring the moment as we drifted, marking the end of an unforgettable day.
