Amazon River Cruise – Adventure Travel in Peru


Hello from the shores of the Amazon river. This is a pretty cool place to be wouldn’t
you say? Yeah, this is a bucketlist item for us definitely. So we are currently cruising down the Amazon
with Rainforest Cruises. We’re going to be spending four days and three
nights aboard the Delfin number one. Yeah, and it is a very luxurious boat. We’re doing this in style. It is awesome. We’re going to give you a tour of the boat
and we’d also like to show you some of the really cool excursions that we’re going to
be doing over these next three to four days. So come along. Let’s go. This feels like yet another episode of MTV
cribs. But come on in. We are staying in the Anaconda suite. Pretty cool. No anaconda sighted so far. But basically this is our little terrace. We have a nice balcony with views of the Amazon
river. And yeah we can just hang out here, have drinks,
read a book, it is pretty cool. I like it. Alright, and let’s check out the inside of
our room. Okay. So I have to admit we’ve already unpacked. So it is not quite as tidy as it was. Well are we ever tidy? Come on. Hahaha. Come on. So this is the room. This is where we are staying. You’ve got the bed, a little living area. My laptop is off there in the distance. Our electronics are scattered around. Yep. And the bathroom is just over this way. Tada. Hi. So I would say this is our favorite area. The common room. Yes. It doesn’t get much more relaxing than the
common area here. We’ve got all of these pillows and check out
the cool display of bananas and plantains. Some plantains. Yes. And the Amazon. The Amazon river is right there. And if you want to lounge like a lizard just
head over to the bar over there. Check that out. And this is a pretty swanky bar. But you know what, I think I’m in the mood
for a game of chess. So Sam, I challenge you. So right now I’m going to challenge Sam to
a game of chess. We’ve only played chess twice. And you’ve never won. I’ve never won. So let’s see if the third time is a charm. Team Audrey! Pwew. Yeah! Yeah! Well, it would appear Sam has emerged victorious. I only had one piece left. My King. That was it. That was my third win against Audrey. So if you’re placing bets on one of the two
of us you should probably go with me. Our first afternoon aboard our Amazon Cruise
was pretty relaxed. After settling into our rooms we had some
free time to enjoy the boat, and as the sun was beginning to make its way down, we made
our way up to the top deck where we got to witness one of the most spectacular sunsets
ever. The following morning called for an early
start with everyone ready to board the skiff by 6:30 a.m. Our guide had lured us with the promise of
wildlife and a delicious breakfast aboard the boat, and thankfully he delivered on both
of those. That morning we saw countless blue and yellow
macaws, a school of pink dolphins playfully breaking through the water, and sloths slowly
going about their day. As for breakfast, the captain took us to a
secluded lagoon covered in a blanket of water lettuce, where we parked the boat and enjoyed
a three course breakfast featuring: fruit-kebabs, chicken and avocado salad, and hot sandwiches. It was the perfect way to start off our day
on the Amazon. Woah! Hot? I am super sweaty. I’m sure you can probably tell. So I’m enjoying the fan, yeah. So we are back in the jungle. This afternoon we are doing a jungle walking
excursion. And we’re also going to be doing a canopy
walk across a series of suspension bridges. So we’re just on the trail. We’ve got our rubber boots back on. Rubber boots on and I think this walk. I think this walk should be around forty minutes
until we reach the bridge. So, yeah. Okay, so you’ve got your weightlifting gloves
on. What is this for Sam? Actually this is because of fire ants. And while we’re walking across the suspension
bridge we don’t want to get any on our hands. Protection. Protection. So we have reached the first of the series
of suspension bridges. Are you feeling ready? Ha! As ready as I can ever be. I mean I don’t love these but it should be
some awesome views. I hate heights. Let’s go. Bouncy. How are you feeling with all of the bounce? Not bad. Are you enjoying the bounce Sam? You know what, this one is not very high so
I’m not freaked out by it yet. Okay. Wait until the next one. Yeah. We are up in the canopy. It is pretty cool. We’ve gained quite a bit of height since the
first bridge. And now we are on bridge number three. Ooh. This one kind of swings from side to side
doesn’t it? So this appears to be the last bridge for
a while. And I have to say I’m pretty proud of Sam. He’s practically Tarzan. Practically Tarzan. He doesn’t even like heights. Awww. Hahaha. Yeah, you did well. The courage is all there. Meal times were another highlight of our cruise
aboard the Delfin I. They had an international menu sure to satisfy
every palate, but they also made sure to use Amazonian ingredients and feature Peruvian-inspired
dishes at every meal. Every meal was a delight to our foodie taste
buds. So good morning. It is another beautiful day on the Amazon
and we’ve just finished breakfast and we’re now heading out on our first excursion of
the day. We will be going piranha fishing and if you
watched our previous video we already did that at the treehouse; however, I was very
unsuccessful while Sam caught the biggest piraña yet. So we’re going to try it again and see if
maybe I can catch one this time. Okay Sam so we’re ready to fish some piranhas? Round two. So here is the rod, here is the bait, it is
just a little bit of meat. And so the whole idea here is to put your
rod in and make a splashing sound. Like something has just fell into the water. Like an insect or some creature. And that is going to attract the pirañas. And you just wait until you feel a bit of
a tug. So 0 for 1 so far today. But I still like my odds because the last
time we tried this, when we were doing the fishing with the treehouse, it took me about
twenty times to finally catch something so I’m going to be patient again. Okay Sam, so attempt number five at least. This is five or six. Yeah, and you know what, these piranhas appear
to be a little smarter over here. Either that or our hooks aren’t quite as sharp
because I haven’t even felt many tugs. They’re just coming and gracefully. Oh, I feel something here. Oh, no nothing. Nothing yet. Kind of gracefully. False alarm! False alarm, they’re kind of just gracefully
taking it off the hook. Oh. Look at that. Look at that. It’s gone. It is gone. They ate the bait. Again. Oh. Womp. Womp, womp. Womp. So I’ve been fired and I’ve been replaced
by wife-y. Wife-y. Hahaha. Let’s see if I fare any better. See how wife-y does. Oh. I felt a tug. Oh, no it is gone. My goodness. What! The skill of these piranhas is legendary. Okay Sam, so tell us about the one who got
away. So I actually caught it and I was about to
bring it in and it got away. But it wasn’t a piraña. No it wasn’t. It was a little sardine. It was but it was a big fish. It was much bigger than the piranha I caught
the other day. So yeah, more fishing failures over here. So we officially ran out of bait for our piranha
fishing so we kind of gave up on that activity. But right now we’re trying kayaking down one
of the smaller tributaries of the Amazon. So this should be fun. Excited? With the fear that if we go overboard that
piranhas are going to eat use. Wobble, wobble, wobble. Sam, crap. Just like in Finland. Sam! Hahaha. Gosh. Lead the way brave one. Lead the way. Well I just sit in the back chill out and
film, right? Hahaha. Is that how we roll? Apparently when you’re in the back and no
one is keeping an eye on you. Things just don’t happen. Don’t get done. So it is super peaceful out here on the water. And I have to say I think this is one of my
favorite activities we’ve done so far. I know, we’ve kind of really taken to kayaking
over the years haven’t we? Yeah. Since we first tried it in was it Vietnam
or Finland? Vietnam. And then Finland. Now we’ve done it in Finland, we’ve also done
it in Fredericton. We’ve done it in Canada. So yeah. Cool. This is something that we’re not the most
adventurous travelers but this is something we can both do. Hahaha. Right? I’m the captain of this ship. And that is a scary thought. Cruising down the Amazon. So we are about to reach the point where the
Ucayali River and the Marañón River meet together to form the Amazon. So that moment calls for a toast. So here is a toast to travels in the Amazon. Salut! Wait, not salud. It is Arriba. Arriba. Abajo. Abajo. Al Centro. Al Centro. Y adentro. Y adentro. Hmmmm. And that is how you do it in the Amazon. Yeah. Alright Sam, do you want to tell us about
this afternoon’s excursion? Yeah, so we’re visiting this cool kind of
little local village. It is called Sanfrancisco. San Francisco. And it has only been around since 1974 so
it is just over 40 years old. So it is going to be cool to check it out. Uh, we’re just going to walk around and see
what we find. Yeah. So apparently this village, the reason they
started it, is because they were looking for higher ground since the previous village used
to flood during the rainy season. So what are you going to do Audrey? Apparently help squeeze sugarcane. I’m going to help squeeze sugarcane. Let’s see if I’ve got talent. Rain sounds. Spanish Peruvian music.

  15. You guys are so so cute! I have already been doing research for an Amazon River cruise. including the Tree House Lodge with Rainforest Cruise. I am afraid of heights . I wanted to do the Tree house as a surprise to my husband. So I thought I would check out videos of people walking around the Treehouse vicinity so I can soften my fear of heights…. finding out recently it really is a fear of falling!.     This is how I found you guys.  I told the owner of Rainforest Cruises how adorable, but professional your video is!!!!  Im looking forward going. We will be cruising on  the Cattleya!  PS  gloves for the fire ants …great tip!!Looking forward to watching you channel for future references!!

  16. you tap the water with the bait, not the rod, they are surface feeders; don't let the bait sink

  17. The kids in the end of the video have Nadia
      Comăneci's balance skills…

  18. I love your blogs other than the high-pitched voice "yay"ing every 2 minutes. extremely irritating such that I get stressed watching the video, thinking you're gonna do it again.

  19. Wonderful look at the Amazon from an adventure point of view. Mild adventure that is!

  20. I think you are the only guys who could and should do a tour of Antartica next!

  21. Lol at your fashion statement outfit on the bridge there, Sam.

  22. Hey Guys,
    Which cruise company did you use? and what was the name of your boat? We're looking to do this soon too!

  23. Amazon is from Brazil, you are in the Amazon forest, Amazon is a Brazilian state what and where is the greater part of the amazon

  24. AMAZING boat you are stayin at ! the journey is beatiful but i looked at the prices of that, and it really is like 2 or 5,000 $ for a few daysss ?!! naaah you dont need to pay that much to enjoy the forest and cruise safely on a River, even the amazon …..
    Speaking spanish and browsin im sure i can find some 400$ for a nice week eat good and being safe with nice confort though.

    PERUANOS por favor decid me que baratos viajes existen en AMAZONAS !!

  25. When u vlog, every aspect of trip ingredients must be added , narrated and displayed at every stage like…name of the place, location map, travel route, cost of trip etc. will help the viewers…. ultimately that's what the whole vlog video all abt….. without these basic infos, u have done nothing great..
