Boating On The Río Paraná - Boating Rosario - Argentina

On sunny days, the Río Paraná is brightly colored with all sorts of watercrafts. Some are heading over to the Islas Alto Delta beaches, where daytrippers will pass the day swimming and sunbathing.

Others just are cruising the swift, silty waters on weekends and holidays. The major boat offering two-hour guided tours year-round is Ciudad de Rosario (Av Belgrano and Pasaje Domínguez, Tel: 449-8688 / 156-184-334, URL: www.barcocr1.com). Del Paraná also sets out (La Fluvial, Tel: 155-014-242 / 155-023-500). Boteros del Paraná does trips through the islands to observe flora and fauna, and to learn about islero life (Tel: 155-484-460, E-mail: malvas@arnet.com.ar). Rosario Sail takes small groups out in its sailboat to explore the river (Tel: 156-289-287, E-mail: rosariosail@hotmail.com, URL: www.rosariosail.com.ar).

Traversing the river on one’s own is a big sport in Rosario. Up near Playa Florida are several kayak and canoe storage places. But none have canoes or kayaks to rent. Bike and Kayak Tours Rosario offers kayaking expeditions on the river and through its islands (Calle Zeballos 327, Phone: 155-713-812, E-mail: dosruedasunahuella@hotmail.com, URL: www.bikerosario.com.ar). For travelers looking for an adrenaline high, kite boarding on the river should fit the bill just right. Big Jump offers one-hour classes ($43 per session; three sessions $100) (Av Carrasco 2469, Tel: 156-008-989 / 155-043-856, E-mail: bigjumprosario@hotmail.com, URL: www.big-jump.com.ar).
