Buenos Aires Delta Aventura

Rio de la Plata, or the “River Plate,” has earned the impressive title of being the widest river in the world, and forms part of the border between Argentina and Uruguay. It’s also a hotbed of top angling action! For some, the idea of fishing such a vast body of water might be intimidating – not so for Captain Mauricio Oñate. He warmly invites you to join him aboard Buenos Aires Delta Aventura, where you’ll get a first-class introduction to this fantastic fishery!

Capt. Mauricio is a true lifelong fisherman. He’s been wielding a rod since he was 3 years old, and has over 35 years of experience when it comes to these waters. As well as providing trips targeting the river’s hottest spots, he also loves teaching people all about the different species that call Rio de la Plata home, such as the picture-perfect Golden Dorado and tasty Pejerrey. This includes the best ways to catch them, of course!

You’ll be traveling on board your captain’s 22’ Silver Boat center console, newly built in 2018 and ready to transport up to 5 guests out onto the river. She’s rigged with top-of-the-line fishing amenities, including GPS and fishfinder, life jackets for ages 12 and up, and a full toilet located in the center console. You’ll be navigating these waters in plenty of comfort and safety.

As well as the famous Golden Dorado, huge Catfish like to call these waters home. You’ll have the chance to hook local varieties such as Bagre Amarillo (Yellow Catfish) and Bagre Blanco (White Catfish) – these fish can reach up to 20 kilos here! In addition, Tararira (Wolf Fish) and tasty Pejerrey (Silverside) are also on offer. Capt. Mauricio will show you the best techniques to use, from bottom fishing to spinning when the waters are clear.

As well as providing top-notch rods and reels, bait, and tackle, your captain will pick you up at your hotel and escort you to the dock in San Fernando. Come aboard Buenos Aires Delta Aventura for an incredible adventure in a location like no other!

I've been fishing since I was 3 years old, and sailing since I was 18 – now I'm over 50 years of age, and I have fished and sailed in waters all over the world! I practice almost all types of fishing. I manage and direct my own fishing, nautical and tourism services, and graduated in Social Communication and Counseling. During part of my working life I worked in corporate companies, managing the commercialization of services with global clients, which has led to me becoming fluent in 3 languages. When I go on vacation, I choose destinations where I can combine my free time and plenty of rest and relaxation with...fishing!
