Riding a boat into a waterfall

At Iguazu, we rode a boat into the waterfalls. Like this….


It was more expensive and far shorter than the ecological tour I’d wanted to take (not running due to water levels being too low), but it was definitely worth it.


Not only did we ride into this impressive cascade, we also rode into the second biggest section of the waterfalls. Twice!


See that huge cloud of white spray? That’s where the boat took us. Those few seconds we spent surrounded by water were a tumult of noise, whiteness, and great pressure as the torrent gushed down on top of us. It was amazing. Everyone was grinning and dripping with water as we left the boat.

I was trying to photograph one of these birds from afar, as it briefly touched down on a branch before flying off just as I had it in focus. But within five minutes there were more than enough, squawking and sticking their tail feathers in the air.
