Boat Trips - Boating Puerto Iguazú - Argentina

Puerto Iguazú lies precisely where the Río Iguazú flows into the Paraná. Boating is a great way to explore the tri-national character of these two mighty rivers coursing through Paranaense jungle. Several excursions depart from the city port into the impressive landscape. All companies have their offices at the port.

Catamarán Crucero Alto Paraná does a two-hour trip on the lower Río Iguazú and Upper Paraná, making a stop near a Guaraní village to experience their music and dance (5:30 p.m., weather permitting, $27, Tel: 54-3757-421-111).

Navegación Tres Fronteras is a one-hour journey offered by Iguazú Water Sports. It passes by the border obelisks of all three countries and sails beneath Puente Internacional Tancredo Neves to the Tamanduá waterfall (hourly 9 a.m.-7 p.m. $17, children under 10 years old, free). Iguazú Water Sports also does waterboarding (not the torture treatment), canoeing, waterskiing, fishing excursions and other adventures.
