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

This experience started like a “different way to celebrate a birthday”. For my 30th birthday, I decided to take some of my friends kayaking, hoping they could appreciate the “river culture” the same way that I do. Being a rowing fan, I used to row in different clubs around the Tigre area. So when I was looking for a nature... More

A great day to the far outskirts of Buenos Aires! We had a great time paddling around with Juan and learning about the local habits and wildlife.

Tigre in general is a great escape from the busy lifestyle of Buenos Aires and a kayaking trip was the perfect way to explore the area. Our guide, Martin met us right at the train station and took us to the launch area by boat. We spent about an hour and a half exploring an amazing part of the Tigre... More

My mom and I had a great time tandem kayaking with El Dorado. Juan is a wonderful and informative guide who has a wealth of information about the local scenery. We would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for a relaxing, informative and fun kayak trip with beautiful scenery.

Juan was an awesome guide. We expected a typical tour guide full of random "facts" but Juan surprised us with knowledge that comes from genuine love and dedication to the area. It was inspiring to hear about his involvement with the community and fun to hang out with him during the tour. We highly recommend it!

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
