We invite you to spend a unique day with us on the Delta. We meet at Tigre Station, where we then take you to our island home where we start kayaking from the calm and quiet of a gentle stream. And of course upon our return to the island a traditional asado, will be waiting for us. « less

Juan and Martin are awesome local guides, and they will take you out of the buzz of the city, and into the nice quite delta. From the little local walking tour, to the beautiful sights and fun kayaking experience. I recommend it 100%

The kayak trip was quite mild yet beautiful. While the Delta is made up of multiple islands, they are each quite large, and our half day booking included 1.5 hours of kayaking up a river and back again. We enjoyed the outing, but didn't find the landscape particularly diverse or exciting. Our guide Martin was great, he was clearly a... More

El Dorado Kayak was an incredible way to explore the narrower byways of Tigre. A very professional, high-end operation: Juan and his partner picked us up at the train station and shepherded us out to the nature preserve where they are based. We received a tour of the preserve and a little training in technique, and then had a wonderful... More

We spent a fabulous afternoon with Juan, who was an excellent guide and instructor for those of us who were new to kayaking. The half-day option was a good way to do some kayaking, see some sites and feel like we'd gotten out of the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires. We ended our paddling at a newly opened eco... More

Although the trip to get to El Dorado Kayak is an adventure in itself (subte to the train, train to the river boat), it was worth it. Our guide, Juan, met us at the train station to escort us to the new camp site for the business. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area. When we arrived at the new... More

Avoid the touristy boat options in Tigre and see the real, natural side of the delta with this great kayak tour. My boyfriend and I did the half-day tour with Juan, and we happened to be the only two people on the tour that day. After Juan met us at the train station, we took the public water taxi to... More

We had a great day on the canals in the Tigre delta. We booked the half-day tour, and had around 2hours of kayaking itself, plus some more time in the delta for chilling, swimming and looking around in the nature. If you want to get away from the typical touristic atmosphere of Tigre, it is highly recommended to do such... More

Had a relaxing day away from the city paddling around the canals in the Delta of Paraná looking at birds, boats and holiday homes for a couple of hours (or three). There was time for a nice swim to cool off before a good lunch at a local place & to hang out in an adirondack chair back at the... More
