Overview
Vessel Type: River Vessel Length: 169 feet / 51.5 meters Passenger Capacity: 42 Built / Reimaged: 2015 / 2017 Our newest vessel, the Delfin III, offers guests an immersive rainforest experience while simultaneously treating them to the highest levels of luxury. This brand new vessel with capacity for up to 42 passengers. The ship has been beautifully finished with the finest details, hardwood floors, designer furniture, and handmade Peruvian artifacts. The itineraries have been carefully planned and are set to offer an unforgettable experience. Guests will have no shortage of up close rainforest experience and gourmet food to compliment. Guests have the option of four room classes. On the first deck there are 8 Suites complete with floor to ceiling panoramic windows as well as 2 spacious Corner Suites facing the front of the ship. The second deck is comprised of 10 Upper Suites and the largest of all, the Owner's Suite. The top deck features beautiful indoor and outdoor lounge, a sundeck with plunge pool, a spa and gym, and of course the bar. CANOPY LOUNGE In the heat of the Amazonian afternoons, the air-conditioned Canopy Lounge keeps you connected to the rainforest with floor-to-ceiling, panoramic windows and locally inspired decor. Here, cultural performances, lively discussions with expert naturalists, Peruvian cooking classes, and nightly entertainment around the bar enrich and delight as the ship’s staff cater to your every whim. DELFIN III SUITES When not enjoying the comforts of the social areas, if you are on board, chances are you'll be relaxing in your equally comfortable suite or stateroom. Both spacious and well-appointed, her on board accommodations all offer individual climate control, daily housekeeping with turndown service, the finest bed linens and duvets as well as a pillow menu, luxuriously soft robes and slippers, all natural therapeutic bath amenities, copious amounts of storage space, telescopes for star-gazing, and much more. ANDES DINING ROOM In the Andes Dining Room, the ship’s expert culinary team will present you with dazzling creations prepared from local ingredients, each dish infused with flavors and inspiration from the rainforest around you. As you take in the passing scenery, you’ll delight in menus featuring roasted meats, lightly grilled fish, fresh vegetables, sun-ripened tropical fruits, and decadent desserts. BOUTIQUE This vessel features artwork by Peru’s leading contemporary artists as well as authentic and locally driven craftwork - from the wood carved furniture to the hand woven palm leaf ceilings. If any artwork strikes your fancy, you may purchase it and we will have it shipped to the comforts of your home. RAINFOREST SPA Since ancient times, the Amazon rainforest has been the ultimate source of mystique-filled cures and exotic elixirs. In the serene Rainforest Spa, this tradition continues with indulgent remedies. Yucamani stone massages, soothing avocado wraps, invigorating coffee-cacao scrubs that promote wellness and rejuvenation for the mind and body. For those that prefer to relax with a good work out, never fear, there is also an on board gym. SUN DECK The open-air Sun Deck is the hub of activity on the Delfin III. Here you can practice yoga or savor a rich Peruvian coffee as you watch the sunrise. Curl up with a book on a cushioned chaise or go for a dip in the sparkling plunge pool. And in the evening, gather in the shaded lounge to sip Pisco Sours as you revel in the sounds of the jungle coming to life. GYM To compliment your daily excursions in the rainforest, we welcome you to enrich your body while on board by making use of our exercise space. Whether you enjoy aerobic exercises or cardio, our Gym resources are available at your disposal. Better yet, the floor to ceiling window allows so you never miss a second of the vibrant jungle scenery outside. SHORE EXCURSIONS For all short transport (such as from the vessel to land for hiking) and wildlife seeking excursions, you will travel via skiff boats. Our skiffs are quick to launch, stable to ride, and ready to navigate into the most hidden corners of the Amazon. Each skiff seats 15 passengers and come with their own expert naturalist guide, captain, and features all safety regulations.
