Full-day cruise around the canals and reserves of the Tigre Delta
Captain Alex was amazing. He picked us at the apartment where we were staying and drove us to his boat on the river. Along the way he gave us a nice overview of the city. Upon arriving at his boat club he quickly prepared the boat and we were on our way. We explored various parts of the Delta and he was quite happy to take us down interesting tributaries to see what was there. Around lunch time he pulled in to a mooring in the shade and left us a lovely lunch of meats, salads, wine cheese, etc. He left my wife and I to enjoy the meal and he kayaked off to visit a friend. we were free to stroll along the river after lunch or use the the kayaks or paddleboards. After lunch we had a leisurely motor back to his boat club passing lots of wildlife along the way. After docking Alex took us on a side trip for a quick visit to the charming village of San Isidro that has a beautiful cathedral and charming old construction. While this trip is more expensive than some of the other options, it is well worth it. First off, it is private--you have the boat to yourself. Secondly, you can choose your itinerary with Captain Alex's expert advice and enjoy a day on the river at your leisure. He picks you up, feeds you and drops you off. It could not be easier. I highly recommend this tour
What a fantastic trip this is. Captain Alex gave us a great insight into the beautiful city of Buenos Aires and the Tigre Delta. Everything in the itinerary was provided and one of our highlights was catching a fish. Great boat and the memory of this trip will last us a lifetime. Thanks Captain Alex
This was a great trip, and really affordable. Captain Alex picked us up at our apartment in Buenos Aires and drove us about 45 minute away to where his boat was docked. We spent several hours getting a private tour of the river delta, we kayaked, then Alex prepared a wonderful traditional Argentine lunch empanadas!, including wine, then left the two of us alone so we could enjoy our lunch privately. At the end of the day, he returned us to our place in B.A. He was a great tour guide, very knowledgable, and fun to hang out with for the day. It was money well spent.
Our day with Captain Alex was perfect from beginning to end - he met us promptly at our hotel and drove us through the city to the marina where his well-kept boat await. My girlfriend and I enjoyed a private boat ride for over six hours, including a break to kayak and fish. Captain Alex was extremely accommodating - providing drinks, a full lunch empanadas, fresh fruit, a cheese and crackers platter and even offered coffee and tea with cookies for an afternoon snack! Captain Alex was knowledgable and fun and our trip out on the water and through El Tigre was a highlight of our trip to Argentina! Thank you Captain Alex!
