Join us in Cuba December 5-12 2020
This isn't just an ordinary flats trip! Cuba's management and conservation is one of the best in the saltwater world. Their Fly Fishing Sanctuary keeps impact on the fish and ecosystem low while giving anglers an experience of a lifetime. This means fishing unpressured fish and not seeing other anglers through your days. Imagine fishing the flats for bonefish and permit and being the only boat out there!
We will be based south of the mainland on a mothership/yacht that's more a floating hotel than a boat with cabins! The yacht is brand new for 2020 (see brochure below for details) and has all the comforts of a high end lodge, the main difference is that you'll be surrounded by nature (and not other travelers) and you get to step directly onto your skiff in the morning and head out fishing!
The cost of the trip is $3300 (including all alcohol, license and conservation fees etc) based on double occupancy. This price includes all guided fishing, lodging, food, alcohol, transfers to and from airports. The only things not included in the price are airfare to Cuba, flies leader and tippet (we will be putting together packages) and gratuity for guides and staff.
December 5 - Fly from Toronto to Cayo Coco (CCC)- Transfer to Jucaro port (included as group transfer)- 2pm departure to Jardines de la Reina- Dinner and overnight on board, shared room
December 6-10 Sunday - Thursday- Full days fishing shared skiff- All meals and beverages included- Overnight on board JA4
December 11 - Friday- 3/4 day fishing- Overnight on board JA4
December 12- Morning transfer for Jucaro port from JDR- Disembark 9am- Transfer to Cayo Coco airport for flight home
Logistics and flights can be adjusted as needed, but I would HIGHLY suggest using Toronto as your port city to Cuba for ease of travel.
Optional: Mat & Geri will be transferring to Havana on the morning of the 12th. We will explore Havana for the afternoon and evening, spend the night in Havana and depart from there on the 13th. If anyone is interested in joining us please reach out and we will make the necessary accommodations for this add on to the trip (additional cost). More info on this coming soon.
