Peacock bass fishing 2

Fishing Brazil Adventures, a fishing tour operator, offers you:

A full 6-day fishing package, 7 nights on board at a very comfortable floating hotel that accommodates up to 12 anglers in double suites all equipped with air conditioning and a private bathroom. The floating hotel has a comfortable dinner room and also a superior deck where you can enjoy the time you spend in the main boat. 

The floating hotel starts its journey in the city of Barcelos and all fishing spots are on the Rio Negro, its tributaries, and surroundings lakes. Rio Negro is the second largest tributary of the Amazon River. It’s an amazing place with excellent fishing spots both for fly and bait casting with countless lakes too.

In this area, you will be able to catch the beautiful peacock bass and also the giant Amazon catfish like Piraiba and Pirarara (redtail catfish) along with other several local fish.

One of the nights of fishing, a barbecue is offered on board the floating hotel or on the river bank. 

This package has transfers from Manaus to Barcelos City round trip on a private charter. The private flight leaves Manaus on Fridays, early in the morning, and returns on the following  Friday also in the morning. Please pay attention to the maximum weight allowed on the private plane: 15 kg + 3 kg carry-on baggage + fishing rods.

The crew and the fishing guides stay in a second floating hotel that goes with the main one during the whole week giving more space, comfort, and silence to the anglers during the time they are at the main boat.

We suggest anglers schedule their arrival in Manaus two days in advance to avoid delays in the departure of the connecting flights. 

On the last day return flights home should be scheduled with departure not before 3:00 PM. Manaus time. 

An English–Portuguese translator will be available from your arrival to your departure.

Full-time WhatsApp support before and during the fishing days.
