Wildlife advocate Ron Magill last joined International Expeditions' Amazon River cruise in 2012. As he prepares to lead our September 6 departure aboard IE's new riverboat, he took a few minutes to tell us about some of his favorite moments along the river.

"This is my favorite image of the Amazon cruise taken just before sunrise showing the jungle and a village under construction in the background with the morning mist rising as fishermen start to bring in their nets to collect their bounty. Out of pure luck, you can also see the dorsal fin of a river dolphin coming out of the water to the right of the fishermen as it tries to capitalize on catching some of the fish escaping the nets!"

Join Ron for a live chat about all things Amazon on Wednesday, July 24.
