How on time / dependable are the ferries to Colonia, Uruguay?
We regularly are asked by our clients how dependable and on time the ferries between Buenos Aires and Colonia, Uruguay are since they have flights or plans to coordinate.
In our experience the ferries are very dependable and in general depart and arrive on time, which isn’t always the norm with transportation in South America! The most common reason for delays and/or cancellation is extremely stormy weather which causes large waves on the water. The ferries aren’t effected by normal rain, but in the case of very bad weather ferries to sometimes get delayed until it calms down or in the worst case cancelled all together. This almost exclusively happens in the winter months (June-September) when few tourists visit, so you probably don’t even have to think about this possibility!
