Blackwater Explorer - Amazon

Peacock Bass Fishing - Amazon Explorer

Location: Remote Rio Madeira, Negro and Branco tributaries, Brazil
Type:  Boat

Peacock bass fishing - Amazon AnglerOur 6 years young "Blackwater Explorer" yacht is one of the most comfortable and attractive vessels sailing the Amazon basin.  Roomy cabins with private bathrooms and individual air-conditioning provide all the comforts of home. The spacious dining and lounge areas are furnished in beautiful Amazon hardwoods and the meals and service are exceptional. 

But even more importantly, she was designed for fishermen and built to fish.  Her proportions were selected to maximize interior space while optimizing maneuverability, letting us safely and easily penetrate into previously inaccessible headwaters streams. The yacht's unusually shallow draft allows her to readily pass shallow sandbars and obstructions that would keep less efficiently designed boats back in port. The well organized debarkation deck and waterline exit lets anglers get started on their fishing day quickly, without crowding, fuss or ladders to climb. 

Our September and October trips operate in the Igapo Acu region in the Rio Madeira.  Enclosed within a giant Indian reservation, this pristine region is an exclusive sport fishery, closed to commercial fishing by negotiated agreement.  Including four productive peacock bass rivers and a giant flooded forest, this region boasts some of the most exciting fishing waters in the Amazon. The Blackwater Explorer, concentrating on the most productive waters, will cruise throughout this immense, protected region, known for its great numbers of fish. As the dry season moves northward, so does the Explorer, heading for the Rio Negro basin and its world-record size peacock bass.

Finally, as the Rio Negro basin's season winds down, the Explorer will follow the best water levels to tributaries and lake systems of the Rio Branco. These exclusive fisheries produce superb numbers of peacocks, as well as plenty of fish into the 20-pound class. Their relatively clear waters makes them great fly fisheries. This region produces excellent results until well into March.
