Kayaking the Delta

Kayaking the Delta

"Recommended. This program follows a group of five people kayaking the Orinoco Delta, a labyrinth of waterways through the Venezuelan jungle that ultimately leads to the Atlantic Ocean and the coast of Trinidad. The film is a day-by-day depiction of the group, who averages 30 miles a day on their arduous journey. Local wildlife, such as capuchin and howler monkeys, scarlet ibis, toucans, jaguars, otters and dolphins are shown in their habitats. Warao Indians are willing and accommodating hosts for the travelers, playing music for the kayakers on their homemade instruments and demonstrating their handmade toys. The scenery is quite lush and beautiful throughout. The final sixty miles are a challenge as weather conditions, difficult channels of the waterways, sore muscles, and general fatigue take their toll on the weary travelers before they reach their destination." -EMRO Review
This program documents the adventure of five daring people, Chris, Phil, Brenden, Alexandra, and PiƱa, a Warao guide, who test their limits in a never-before-made journey to kayak 200 miles across the Orinoco Delta to the coast in front of the island of Trinidad. Bringing minimum luggage and just enough support gear to fight the elements, they visit and stay in Warao houses, share the native people's lifestyle, enjoy the nature and wildlife, eat the local food, listen to little-known music, and sleep in hammocks; accomplishing their kayaking goal and learn more about life and themselves than they ever could have imagined. 05/10DE JSCA 30 min.
