For exciting angling, exotic settings, and luxurious shipboard accommodations, few can rival the experience provided by our Peacock Bass Fishing outfitters in Brazil.
They have every base covered—from their top-notch equipment to the friendly staff and incredible food—to ensure that each moment of your stay is as enjoyable as possible.
Day One (Thursday): Begin your journey to the Amazon by flying to Miami, Florida, where you’ll spend the night. Please note that the flight and hotel costs are not included in the package.
Day Two: Check in for your TAM Airlines flight well before dawn—typically between 2:30 and 3:30 AM. This check-in is crucial and the company enforces it strictly. Make sure that you don’t sleep through it!
Depending on when you’re traveling, you’ll take to the skies anywhere from 5:40 to 7:40 AM and reach Manaus, Brazil at approximately 12:00 PM. You’ll be greeted by the outfitters at customs. They’ll then take you to your preregistered room in the Park Suites Hotel, and you’ll be given the rest of the day to relax and explore the city. ATMs and a currency exchange are positioned right next to the hotel, and there are plenty of shops to visit, including a jewelry shop for which you’ll receive a discount. Places of interest include the local fish market, opera house, and zoo, and tourist guides can be hired to provide you with transportation and save you the trouble of finding your way around the city.
Day Three: You’ll be provided with a hot breakfast at the hotel. After eating, you’ll meet up with everyone else who’s going on the trip in the lobby, then head out to the airport for the charter flight. Please keep in mind that there will be a strict weight limit of 35 to 38 pounds for luggage, so be sure to pack light. The daily laundry service at the lodge means you’ll only need to bring a couple changes of clothes. The outfitter also provides anglers with standard tackle packages worth well over $1,000 each for use during their trip at no additional cost. Unless you were planning on fly fishing (in which case you’ll need to bring your own equipment), just pack your lucky lure and you’ll be all set.
Depending on your destination, the charter flight will last either an hour or a mere 20 minutes. After that you’ll finally reach the yacht! The staff will assist with your luggage and let you know where you’ll be staying. Once that’s taken care of, you can recover from your trip with the help of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and then unpack and rest—or jump on a TRACKER boat and get straight to fishing!
Days Four through Nine: You’ll be fishing all day, every day for this part of your trip. Your boat will be stocked with a cooler containing lunch, water, soda, and, most importantly, beer. If you’d prefer to enjoy your lunch onboard the yacht, simply let the management know and they’ll make sure one is ready for your return. You can come back in and head out again at any point during the day, whenever you feel like it, or you can spend every daylight hour enjoying nonstop Amazon peacock bass fishing.
The staff has a few traditions for the trip: they generally prepare a lunch onshore at one point, and close to the end of your stay, if conditions permit, they’ll throw a nighttime luau on the beach—something they look forward to on every trip.
Day Ten: The journey home begins. After your charter flight back to Manaus, the staff will lead you back to the international airport and see you off for the flight back to Miami. From there it’s a simple matter of retracing your steps.
If you’re flying back with American Airlines, you’ll be leaving late at night and won’t need to get to the airport until 9:30 PM. You can leave your luggage with the Park Suites Hotel and go see the sights you didn’t have time for on Day Two.
The outfitter offers two custom-designed shallow-draft luxury yachts. They are capable of traversing even extremely shallow water and are equipped with state-of-the-art communications and navigation technology.
They provide an unbeatable combination of safety, comfort, and mobility.
You’ll be fishing in truly wild rainforest. Civilization has had little to no impact on the region, and you’ll be immersed in the incredible sights and sounds of the Amazon every day.
Go hand fishing for piranha, spot caimans at night, or add an eco tour to your trip and experience the jungle firsthand. You can even visit the villages of the indigenous peoples who’ve always called this land their home.
While the incredible Amazon peacock bass fishing is, without a doubt, the most exciting part of the trip, nobody should pass up the opportunity to adventure out on these unforgettable side trips.
The menu encompasses everything from Brazilian beef and fresh local fish to gourmet international cuisine, all made by the outfitter’s professional chef.
Fresh fruit and bread hot from the ovens complement the meals, and desserts are prepared from scratch. Everything is made according to each person’s wants and needs.
Beer is served all day, any day, and wine is the alcoholic beverage that is served only with dinner. Cocktails are always served too!
Depending on which ship you’ll be sailing on, the price will be either $4,950 per person or $5,250 per person. It’s possible to charter a private yacht just for your group; contact us for more information.
A relatively modest deposit of $50% is required to book your spot, and the rest of the payment is due a minimum of 75 days before your departure date. Discounts are available for active military and law enforcement personnel.
