Adventurous Anglers
The Ultimate Exotic Amazon Fishing Experience
paper texture
Fishing the waters of the Amazon basin is one of the most exciting and interesting angling experiences available today, with trophy peacock bass, payara, piranha, pacu, arowana, and numerous other exotic species found throughout the region. While both of the Brazilian operations that we work with and represent offer excellent accommodations and amenities in beautiful areas that are both isolated and protected, River Plate takes things to an entirely different level when it comes to a “remote” location. Utilizing a system of shallow-draft floating cabins, this operation allows anglers to access fishing areas that are completely unreachable by all other operations. If you’re looking for a true adventure in the Amazon, then this is the operation to consider.

Lodging Details
River Plate’s “Fly-In Floating Cabins” are the ultimate solution for optimizing shallow drafting mobility, comfort, and luxury in the most remote areas of the Amazon. Upon arrival, you will travel about one to two hours via an eight-passenger Cessna Caravan turbo-prop floatplane, followed by a one to a two-hour boat ride to one of six different Floating Cabin Camps. These mobile cabin camps cruise the headwaters of small tributaries and countless fish-filled, secluded lagoons. The location is normally too long of a run for standard bass boats in the areas where most of the competing houseboats and lodges are operating. The River Plate mobile cabins move daily to fresh, unfished river segments. Each night you are then overnighting along new and different white-sand Amazonian beaches. Also, this feature allows you to walk in at any time to comfort from the nearby secluded, prehistoric-looking lagoons to your 10×15-foot private cabin that is outfitted with air conditioning and a full bathroom. These cabins are tastefully decorated and every detail has been carefully considered.

Food and Beverages
Each floating cabin “chain” of boats features a main dining cabin. Breakfast is served each morning by 6:00 AM and your guide will be ready to leave by 6:30 AM. At mid-day, you may return for lunch in the dining room and a “siesta” in your air-conditioned cabin or you may take a packed lunch in the boat with you. Appetizers and dinner are served each evening in the main dining area after all guests return.

Typical Length of Stay
A standard package is eight (8) nights / six and a half (6.5) fishing days (Friday to Friday), leaving from and returning to Manaus, Brazil (MAO).

Non-Angling Activities and Options
Non-angling activities with River Plate are limited, as this is primarily a trip that focuses on fishing. There are a number of non-angling sights and tours available in Mabaus.

Internet / Communications
Wi-Fi is available at all hotels in Manaus, but not on the river. There is a satellite phone on the boat that can be used by guests for a charge of $5.00 per minute.
