The Boats

Extremo Sur - Boats

Rafts: our fleet is made up by modern and resistant standard or self bailing rafts. These boats consist of several air compartments, which make them unsinkable. We have well-known brands rafts, such as AIRE, NRS and H2O.

There are two choices for rafting: with paddles or with oars.

Paddle boats

Depending on the river difficulty, the boat has capacity for 8 or 10 people plus the guide. In this mode,
all the members of the group are involved: each person carries a paddle and participates actively as
part of a team, sometimes paddling softly and other times frantically.

Oar boats

In this case, the boat is maneuvered only by the guide, who rides it with a system of central oars secured to the raft through a frame. We usually use this system when there are many kids, or in cases in which passengers prefer not to paddle and but relax or take pictures instead.

Kayaks: We have two kinds of kayaks: rigid and inflatable.

Rigid Kayaks: They are made of rotomolded polyethylene. They are super resistant and agile.

Inflatable Kayaks or Duckies: They are inflatable boats for one or two people, with separate air chambers that make them unsinkable.

VEHICLES
