The boats dimensions allow a deep discovery of the delta, its numerous canals and arroyos. Exclusive cruise itineraries have been designed away from touristic areas, and permitt an intimate approach of the authentic inhabitants life style and ancestral activities. While some meals are served onboard, others are catered at ancient houses along the river allowing cultural exchanges and priviledged contacts with the locals.

For those looking for a more active way to penetrate the delta, bicycles and a small rowing boat are also available.

On each sampan boat, a crew of 4 including an english or french speaking guide is pampering the guests. Exotic fruits, mineral water, green tea, and fresh towels are served on complimentary basis.
