This is simply the most exciting trip we have ever hosted! Fishing for Peacock Bass at it's finest! You get yourself to Manuas, Brazil on the first date listed (we'll help with this).......and we'll do the rest. Manaus is only a 4.5 hour flight from Miami and is in the same time zone! Easy!
We are convinced that this is the best, and most unique "system" for chasing Peacock Bass in the Amazon! The floating cabin system that moves you up and down these rivers is the most effective, and the most unique way to fish these incredible waters. On top of that, River Plate now features "Exclusive" private waters.......we are the only ones allowed to fish the waters that we do. Nobody else in the Amazon can offer this.....
Our hosted trips are limited to 7 anglers, plus a representative from Mad River Outfitters. We are there to assist and to make sure that you have the trip that we promised you. If you can't make our scheduled trip dates, Mad River Outfitters can put together a trip with these folks for you at any time! Our prices are always the same as the outfitter.....our booking services are FREE.
Fly, Spin and Bait Casters all Welcome on these trips!
Each two-angler bedroom barge has a steel structure 8' X 15' room, fully carpeted wooden platforms, 4-ply insulated roof, fully screened walls and aluminum entry door, shower bathroom, standard sized beds, air conditioning, 220 volt electricity etc. The caravan consists of 9 barges: Five bedrooms, One 18' X 10' dining/sitting lounge, One host quarters, One kitchen and One staff bedroom.
Below is an what is and what is not included in the trip.
