You brought up a VERY good point that some people don't consider. The rivers over there are very dependent on the rain. Often times there can be too much rain and river boats cannot navigate under...

First, it sounds to me like your agent is not all that familiar with international airfare, nor how booking airfare with AMA Waterways works.
