Speedboat Adventure at the Iguazu Falls

  • Get ready for a unique, close-up view of the mighty Iguazu Falls!

Get ready for an adventurous speedboat ride while enjoying a unique, close-up perspective of the Iguazu Falls different from what you’ll see from the panoramic boardwalks. Our speedboat will ride the waters of the Iguazu River to approach the falls, getting right inside the mist formed by them. You’ll be thoroughly splashed by the mist of falls while listening to the water’s imposing roar. The ride provides a unique and extremely close-up view of the San Martin and the Three Musketeers falls. The climax of this experience is “showering” under the mist of the San Martin falls, the second strongest fall in the Iguazu system.

The starting point for this tour starts at a dock located in the middle of the Lower Circuit. After climbing down quite a long and steep staircase, we’ll arrive at the dock and be handed our life vests and a waterproof bag for storing cameras, cell phones, and anything else you may want to protect from getting wet. Our navigation will take place on a triple-engine speedboat, providing plenty of power and safety to take on the falls.

Now it’s time to hop on board and begin our waterfall adventure!
