The mighty Rio Negro is world-famous for its giant peacock bass.  Guests on this trip enjoy an incredible fishery that will test the strongest of equipment.  Guests enjoy full days on the water and jaw-dropping scenery and abundant wildlife. 


Accommodations: The stunning Umuarama yacht is 130 feet long and was built with classic Brazilian luxury in mind. With beautiful Brazilian hardwood inlays throughout the ship, this 3 level yacht offers extreme comfort and class with plenty of room to roam.

What makes this location unique:

  • Size: In 6 days of fishing, we will cover an area that is 10 miles long and 7 miles wide (70 square miles).  Guests will never see the same water twice.

  • Variety:  This part of the Rio Negro comprises rivers/streams/lakes/ponds/lagoons/sandbars/submerged jungle combined.  The variety that our guests experience here is mind-boggling.

  • Expected catch rates: We aim for 1,100 fish landed per week with 10 guests, with 10% of those fish being double-digit in pounds. 

  • Lunches aboard our mothership and afternoon siestas in your own air-conditioned cabins. Note: other outfitters here do "all dayers" to conserve fuel, meaning that lunches are served in the jungle without an opportunity to rest.

  • Guests will experience opportunities to cast to multiple double-digit peacock bass every day.  

  • Live aboard our beautiful mothership adorned with stunning Brazilian hardwoods throughout the interior.  Originally designed to hold 23 Guests, we've customized the staterooms to be single-occupancy!  That's right, enjoy your own private cabin with a private hot water bath for the same price that others are charging for double occupancy with a shared bathroom.

For the fourth consecutive year, we are proud to announce that we've been presented with TripAdvisor's Traveler's Choice Award, placing Nomadic Waters in their top 10% highest-rated companies.  See what our Guests have to say about our experience.
