Arrival & Departure
The Delfin III Amazon River Cruise begins and ends in Iquitos, Peru (IQT). Group transfers to/from Iquitos airport to embarkation/disembarkation points are included for travelers arriving and departing on scheduled arrival/departure days and recommended LAN flights. If you would like assistance with international flights, please visit our Booking Flights resource page.
All excursions are included with your cruise rate. For all short transport (such as from the vessel to land for hiking) and wildlife seeking excursions, travel is via skiff boats. Skiffs are quick to launch, stable to ride and ready to navigate into the most hidden corners of the Amazon. Each skiff seats eight passengers and comes with its own expert naturalist guide and captain and abides by all safety regulations.
Due to the conditions of the wet and humid rainforest, you will be outfitted with waterproof rubber boot rentals (included) for your comfort and convenience. Before each outing, the boots will be provided for you; after each outing, they will be returned to the staff for cleaning. Rain ponchos are also provided for your use.
It is possible to create very intimate experiences with the local native community people. For example, there are many young children and families in communities who have various needs in the absence of their own resources, so any help will be very useful. Kids love t-shirts, pencils, notebooks and toys.
Single travelers wishing to book a double-occupancy cabin may do so at a 50% (75% for Owner & Corner Suites) supplement of the per-person listed rate in select cabins upon availability.
Families & Children
Kids 7 years and older are welcomed aboard all departure dates. Children aged 11 or under at time of departure are eligible for a 20% discount from the adult rate. There are four suites interconnected to cater to families’ needs.

Use the itinerary as a guide only. Itineraries may be altered due to weather, season, wildlife, National Park regulation or at the captain’s discretion. Itineraries in the Amazon may vary based on the high water season of November to May and low water season of June to October. The ability to be flexible makes this type of small ship cruising unique.
