If you are a one of the several new visitors to the Dawn on the Amazon Captains Blog, welcome, I am Bill Grimes, writer, photographer, naturalist, and jungle guide. I live and work in Iquitos Peru, on the rivers, and in the rainforests. I am also the owner and president of Dawn on the Amazon Tours and Cruises, a small but cozy adventure outfitter for independent travelers.
The Captains Blog focuses on the charming port town of Iquitos, and my expeditions on the upper Amazon watershed of Peru. You will find travel planning strategies designed to help you save money and time.
I have recently been to Pacaya Samiria National Reserve, Allpahuayo Mishana National Reserve, the newly enlarged Tamshiyacu Tahuayo Reserve, Pevas, Nauta, the Triple Frontier, and many other exciting river and rainforest destinations. Soon I will be posting more details of those travels, and will offer advice that will be valuable to help you build your own Amazon Adventure.
On Oct 22-27, 2007 we will cruise up the Nanay River through Allpahuayo Mishana National Reserve with a small group in my riverboat, Dawn on the Amazon III. I will be posting about the behind the scenes work that goes into a successful major expedition into the jungle.
