On the outskirts of Buenos Aires is the Parana Delta, a magnificent maze of rivers and streams wrapped with flora and fauna. We invite you to spend a unique day with us on the Delta. We meet at Tigre, where we then take you to our island base where we start kayaking from the calm and quiet of the inner rivers of the Delta.

Went with a friend in a group of 6 on the morning kayak tour with Martín. Don't have too high expectations of the amenities at the restaurant/house where the tour begins; the bathroom is functional but far from lavish and you can leave your belongings in the bedroom of the family that owns the restaurant where the tour begins. The... More

Went kayaking recently with Martin Crovetto during a vacation to Buenos Aires, Argentina. We were in BA for most of the time and wanted to venture to Tigre for one of the days. We found Martin through a recommendation and we were not disappointed. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and it was a great trip down the river. Recommended.

We took a half day kayak tour with El Dorado during our visit to Buenos Aires and absolutely fell in love with the Tigre area! Martin gave us specific directions and meeting him in Tigre was easy. We took the train from Retiro - about 1 hour and only 24 pesos each (about $1.50 USD) round trip. We had been... More

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! My best friend came to visit and we did a half-day tour on the delta with Martin! He was easy to get in touch with, logistics worked out well, and we LOVED learning all about the history of the area as well as about the plants and animals around the delta. This tour is special because you go... More

Great opportunity to get out of BA and do something relaxing...Martin is a great guide and provides great perspective on the country, river and ecology of the area. Also met some nice people on the tour too!

Do this! This kayaking trip was one of the best kayaking day trips I have taken. You feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires. Our guide, Martin, was great, I am not the strongest or most agile kayaker in the world and he was super patient with me and made me feel really at... More

After spending some time in Buenos Aires the Afternoon Kayak Tour with El Dorado Kayak was just what I needed. Our guide Martin picked us up at the train station in Tigre and took us to their base in the Delta. From there we took off with our kayaks into one of the small rivers where at times all you...

We booked the half day tour and it was great! We were picked up in Tigre station by our relaxed guide Martin, who knows a lot about the flora, fauna and general development of the delta. He brought us by motor boat to the canu station more inside the delta. We had a nice paddle into a more calm area... More

We took the train ride out from Buenos Aires (easy to do) and met Martin in the train station (on time). Martin took us to his boat that would bring us to the beautiful spot where the kayaks are stored. We had a place to change if needed and to store our items. After making sure we knew how to... More

We had a booking w/El Dorado Kayak for an unusually cold spring day in Argentina; we didn't realize the Santa Rosa storm would be making an appearance this year, but were determined to explore La Tigre Delta. When Martin brought us out to Amarran Sancho (where the kayaks are kept, we had a booking for that same night), it looked... More
