Sustainability Efforts

Local Guides: Our selected guides appreciate and promote diversity, respecting different traditions, beliefs and practices. Showcasing genuine expressions of culture, only sharing these, and not reproducing or faking similar experiences for travelers. Encouraging interactions with ethnic groups, communities, personalities, and interesting people.  Supporting local wisdom and practices by purchasing and partnering with locals who are authentic even if more expensive. And other endeavors to protect and promote local culture and nature.

Delfin Cruise: Right from the start, Delfin Amazon Cruises has had a continuous commitment to practicing and promoting responsible tourism. They realized they could produce a significant positive impact on the riverine communities to which they have access. For this reason, they created a small program with the local women, to develop handicrafts that would allow them to benefit from our visits. About 5 women were committed to this effort at the beginning, but now there are at least 45 working women in each community. The proceeds of the handicrafts sold onboard help fund an annual program that provides school supplies for children and first aid kits to all the communities along the way. They also work permanently with local guides, who are in charge of cleaning the hiking paths and give support to on board guides, helping them to identify and find plants, insects and other fauna during excursions in the rainforest. Last but not least, the Amazonian fruits and fish served on board are often provided by riverine communities.
