Casual & Nauta Caño

  • Aboard the Delfin II
  • Amazon
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. For sure the most exciting find today was the night monkeys. These cute, large-eyed primates are great fun to watch, and it’s reciprocal, because as we watch them, they watch us. I’m pretty sure that with their humongous eyes, mostly suited for the night, they see us better than we see them.
