CUBA - Canarreos Archipelago Live Aboard Trip

Join Ryan Heitz and Tim Arsenault on an all inclusive fly fishing trip to the Canarreoa Archipelago in Cuba. We are going to board a small live aboard yacht, travel amongst the islands and use fly fishing flats boats to access the fishing. This trip is 6 full days fishing and 7 nights onboard the Avalon I (our boat). Rates include reception in Havana, transfers from and to Havana, all meals, and an open bar with beer, wine, rum and soft drinks.   

The Jardines Avalon I has exceptional cruising capabilities allowing you to access the most remote areas of the Canarreos archipelago during you week fishing the Cayo Largo program. This very spacious 110 foot live aboard yacht has a total of 10 rooms with 2 being convertible queen size cabins featuring side by side beds and 8 deluxe state rooms each with single side by side beds. Each state room is equipped with its own private bathroom, toilet, shower, individual climate controls and a safe.

There is an air conditioned lounge featuring a large screen TV and DVD system for unwinding and watching those amazing fishing videos from your day out on the flats. The lounge is also equipped with a complete digital and photo editing computer if you would like to use it during your stay. The shaded upper sun deck and cushioned chairs and couches are waiting for you to take a siesta in the afternoon or enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning. The yacht is also equipped with a jacuzzi, which is the perfect place to enjoy a mojito after a long day of fishing.

The food aboard the Jardines Avalon I is a wonderful selection of Cuban cuisine, grilled fresh seafood and vegetables along with many international delights. The chef is well versed in many different styles and will be sure to amaze you during your stay aboard this boat. In addition there is a full bar with a selection of Cuban beers and rum, international wines, and a variety of spirits. Our attentive crew will be there to take care of your every need and make sure you have a wonderful trip.

Cayo Largo, one of our favorite destinations and most exclusive fisheries, is getting a serious upgrade! Starting in the 2020 season, we will be utilizing a 10 room mother boat, the new Jardines Avalon I, to accommodate our anglers for this amazing program. Spending a week aboard a mothership yacht will create a luxurious and exclusive experience with the highest quality of food, lodging, and service. With a maximum of 6 skiffs booked in the entire area for the week, this will also prove to be Cuba's most exclusive and innovative fishing destination.

Even better, we are going to be able to offer this program as a Saturday to Saturday week. Clients will board the yacht in the Zapesca area 3 hours south of Havana on Saturday and navigate to Cayo Largo and fish full days Sunday through Friday. On the following Saturday the mother boat will return to Zapesca where clients will disembark to make an afternoon flight out from the Havana airport. This program will require no additional nights in Havana and remove the early morning air transfers that have been characteristic of the Cayo Largo program in the past.

Life on the live aboard is relaxed and completely customizable. You can fish much longer hours on the skiff every day if you wish. Whenever you're finished and ready to unwind, the yacht will be a close run away so you may enjoy all the aspects of our luxury service. You'll be greeted by a welcoming crew, a cold mojito, and then a lobster dinner. With Cayo Largo being our top destination for Grand Slams, this will allow clients more hours on the water chasing the fish of their dreams. This is sure to be an incredible upgrade and experience for all those that choose to fish with us in Cayo Largo for 2020 and the years to come. We look forward to hosting you!
