Why We Love It
If you are ready to go on a true adventure fishing for peacock bass this is the trip for you! Peacock bass are very aggressive and will attack anything that invades their territory making it an exciting “FISH ON” experience.
When I hear “The Amazon” it conjures up all kinds of exotic feelings in my mind. Rightfully so, the topic of many books and movies this mysterious place has a huge variety of plants and animals. Named by the Spanish after the women warriors they encountered on the river, the Amazon is a unique place to fish and visit.
Your eleven-day adventure includes 6 and half days of fishing and an air conditioned suite on a first class yacht—yes you actually stay on the Amazon.
All-inclusive peacock bass fishing trips are $4,950 on the Santana I yacht and $5,250 on the Amazon Santa. Trip includes 6 and a half days of guided fishing, hotel in Manaus on your arrival day, transfer by air to the yacht, lodging and meals on the yacht, and much more.
Below is the eleven-day fishing package starting with flying to Miami. We will customize your package and can add activities before and after your stay on the yacht.
Your trip starts with getting to Miami on Thursday of your ten day itinerary. You need to stay in Miami at a hotel of your choice.
Check in early for your flight with TAM airlines to Manaus, Brazil at Miami International Airport. Your early flight will depart sometime between 5:40 and 8:40 a.m. You will get to Manaus around noon local time and Adventures staff will be there to great you, help with luggage, and take you to your hotel. The night in the hotel is included in the trip.
After check in, you will have a chance to see some of the sites. Adventure staff will give you information about local activities.
You awake early and after breakfast, meet in the lobby for your charter flight by float plane to the yacht. When you arrive, the crew will help you with luggage and room assignments. Refreshing drinks and hors d’oeuvres will served. After lunch, you can unpack and relax or for those that just cannot wait, get on the river and fish a half day
Days Four Through Ten-Sunday through Friday
Six full days of fishing on the Amazon River. Daily lunches and beverages are on the boat. You can also return to the yacht for lunch. Depending upon water levels and other conditions, you have may lunch on shore and the staff will plan special dinner for the last night so everyone can hear the best fish stories. Friday night you will want to prepare for your flight the next morning back to Manaus.
On Saturday morning, the staff will transport your luggage to the airport and onto the plane and say their good byes. Once you land in Manaus, you will be transported directly to the Manaus International Airport to check in for your trip back to your homeland—probably first stop Miami. Depending upon your connections, you may need to spend the night in Miami and fly home the next day.
Peacock bass fishing runs from early August through early February. There is no “perfect” time to fish as peacock bass are in the River this entire period. River fishing depends upon the complex eco system which includes large rains over thousands of square miles. As waters recede at the start of the dry season, the bass come downstream and after a few weeks of feeding, start to spawn. Fishing is best during this period which occurs at different times in places on the river. The yacht will move each day to the best fishing area.
The Rio Solimoes flows into Manaus where it meets the Rio Negro to form the Amazon river. The rivers of Brazil are different in each area. Your guides and yacht captain will take you to the best spots for fishing at the time you are there.
The Santana I has eight air conditioned suites with private en-suite showers. There are two master suites (king beds) and six double occupancy suites (one double and one single bed).
The Amazon Santana has twelve air conditioned suites with private en-suite showers. There are two master suites (king beds) and ten double occupancy suites (one double and one single bed).
The Top Deck is an observation/sunbathing deck with an amazing view. You can snap pictures of the exotic wildlife during the day and remarkable night sky after dark. The Captains Command Room is on the Upper Deck, along with a covered lounge and outside entertainment bar. The Main Deck is where you will find the dining room and kitchen, along with a conveniently located restroom for guests. The menu offers international and regional cuisine that includes fresh fruits, juices, fresh baked breads, Amazon fish and Brazilian beef. The chef can tailor your meal to your specific needs.
There are some options for eco tours on the river. You can also add days before or after the trip in Manaus. Fishing is really what this trip is all about while you are staying on the yacht.
