Sail in tropical style and comfort with a small band of explorers
Delfin II, our base for daily explorations to which we happily return, has a distinct advantage over any land-based camp—she moves, giving you an ever-varied experience of the Amazon’s multiple landscapes and wonders. Her iron exterior is clad in tropical hardwoods, and her interior gleams with wood floors and lacquered palm ceilings. Wood stairs float between decks, and lazily turning ceiling fans add the right tropical notes, while the air-conditioning invisibly cools and dehumidifies. Relais & Châteaux inducted Delfin II into its prestigious hotel group, recognizing her commitment to sustainability, service, local nature, and culture.
