Day One: Travel to Manaus Brazil from wherever you live. This portion of the trip can take two days depending if you have a layover somewhere and where you start from.
Note: It is a really good idea to get to Manaus a day early. You can relax by the pool and get used to the weather and the time change if any. This also give you a buffer day in case of delays with airlines. A meal at the famous Buffalo’s restaurant is also a highlight for anglers with an extra day in Manaus. A city tour is also a highlight and can be arranged in advance.
Day Two: Transfer from Manaus to the fishing operation. Usually you will get to camp in time to fish for a few hours in the afternoon. Be ready to travel early if needed. You will be informed the day before when your group is leaving the hotel so be ready to go.
Day Three-Eight: A full 6 days fishing while you are staying on the River
Day Nine: Transfer back to Manaus Brazil. Once in Manaus there should be enough time to catch a commercial flight back home or at least to the States.
Day 10: You should be getting back home to brag about your trip!
7:30 AM Guide awaiting you on boat to head out fishing
Lunch Lunch is packed by the anglers in the morning in the dinning area during breakfast. It is put in your cooler on your boat to have with you during your fishing day.
5 PM Anglers and guides return back to camp, greeted by freshly-prepared appetizers & drinks
Dinner Dinner is served after dark around 7:00 giving you plenty of time to relax or go for a swim, take a shower and brag to the rest of the anglers about your day.
The Guides you will be spending your days with are experienced Amazon jungle guides. They take pride in the number of fish you catch and are always ensuring that you are having the best possible day on the water. Many of the guides are long-time employees with over 15 years of experience fishing for Peacock Bass. Pay attention to them and their body language while fishing.
The boats used for fishing each day are flat-bottom, aluminum boats and carry 2 anglers plus one guide. They are spacious enough for a comfortable day fishing and small enough to provide the agility required to navigate some of the more remote, narrow waterways. They have gas motors and Poling Platforms, trolling motors and enough room so both anglers can fish at the same time.
Dining and Drinks
Breakfast and dinner are served in the dining cabin. They are both full-service buffet style. The meals represent continental and regional dishes. Fresh breads and pastries are baked each day. Wine, cold beer, soft drinks, and Brazilian-style margaritas are included and always available.
Lunch is packed and brought with you if you want to stay on the water all day, a nice sandy beach in the shade is typically chosen for a relaxing meal. Or, you may choose to head back to camp for lunch and perhaps, even choose to include a nap in the air-conditioned cabin. It’s your choice.
