Ferries On Rio De La Plata


Last week I was with a media friend in Buenos Aires, which was of course an opportunity to test the ferry service to Uruguay. With the much-appreciated help of Direct Ferries we booked a one-day ticket to Colonia.

Before, I hadn’t realised the size of the operations. Seeing the sheer size of the terminal and the number of ferries changed my mind.

Also, something which surprised me was the immigration procedures. After all, in the European Union we are so spoiled with easy border access.

We sailed on SILVIA ANA L, the Spanish, 1996-built monohull fast ferry which had a part of her life on the Color Line route between Hirtshals and Kristiansand.
