Hear what some of our clients have to say about their latest trip with Amazon River Adventures:

TRIP WEEK: JANUARY 4 - 11, 2014
How do I start. First I want to thank Marc and all his staff for putting a trip together that Sheretta and I will never stop thinking about. Folks this was as top notch a trip that you will ever go on. The boat was nice the staff was nice and the guides and fishing boats were top notch. These pictures I have up is just a little glimmer of what we saw and caught. the total experience I really can not explain to how good it was. It was not just the fishing even though it was a big part of it , it sure was not all of it. Just to get to see and experience Amazon was a treat. I have already made plans to return next year and I am planning on taking a bunch of friends and clients with me . Some of you know and some do not know that I had a chance to go last year on a different boat with a different outfitter and after talking to a good friend and client that has been 24 times , that I needed to go with him and with this group with this outfitter. Amazon River Adventures. Did I ever make the right choice. 

If you have never been, just know there is a difference. I am already putting two 12 people groups together to go next Jan back to back weeks and Mark and I are going to go with both groups. This would be your very best bet to go with someone that has been and is prepared with all the right stuff, In fact we left all the tackle in Brazil that Mark furnished , and let me tell you it made a big difference to have the options. No other boat in the Amazon will have that. The rods and reel are great as well and we have plans to take more. So If you want to talk about the trip with any questions I will be happy to share what I experanced. Make plans now for next year as we plan on having this filled up by March and everything in place ,where we can book our flights early at a better cost. I will post more later and I am still working on a video. Last but not least thanks to my guide Coco he was as good as they come. Been a guide for 17 years started when he was 11 years old. He knows it like you can not believe.

TRIP WEEK: OCTOBER 4 - 11, 2013
I would like to thank Pamelah of Amazon River Adventures, the wonderful staff and knowledgeable Guides of the Amazon Santana for a wonderful trip. In over thirty weeks in the Amazon fishing, I can honestly say this is one of the best, well-organized trips I have ever been on. Thanks for making Bobby Bash 2013 a huge success and a lasting memory!!!

“I wanted to thank Amazon River Adventures for an exciting Amazon Peacock Bass fishing trip. The fishing was exciting and the staff on the Amazon Santana was first class all the way. Having been Peacock Bass fishing on numerous occasions and with many Outfitters, I can say the Guides on the Amazon Santana have no peers when it comes to knowledge and dedication to getting you the Trophy of a Lifetime.“

“My trip with Amazon River Adventures was a terrific week fun and gourmet food. Even though the fishing was a bit slower than normal this time of year, I did manager to land a 14 lb’er. I even caught two speckled Peacocks on one Woodchopper! I really appreciated the free use of top of the line fishing gear. It’s nice not to have to lug fishing gear through the airports. The Guides are some of the most knowledgeable and safest ones on the river. The crew was outstanding, having true daily laundry service and working hard to help me locate my lost carry-on bags. They were also kind enough to give me a T-shirt and hat because all my clothes were in my carry-on bags. The housekeeping staff arranged for my shorts and T-shirt to be picked up at bedtime returning them each morning at wake-up knock. I was able to survive the entire week with only having the clothes on my back.  I‘m looking forward to setting up my next fishing adventure with this fine outfitter at one of the Safari shows in Dallas or Reno.“

“AMAZON RIVER ADVENTURES ~ The name says it all! For those who are looking to land a big one in the Amazon there is only one choice.My trip was flawless from start to finish. We were met in Manaus by the local representative “Paula”, who arranged a luxury shuttle (along with luggage) to the local airport for the hour charter flight to Barcelos.We were then transferred to the Mother Ship, “Amazon Santana”, where we were greeted by the friendly staff.I was amazed how organized it all was, right down to the orientation meeting, and before I knew it, I was on the Amazon River fishing! The Guides were amazing! It’s like they have an internal GPS for finding fish.They know the river systems and take care of you right down to pre-ordered refreshments and shore lunches.They Guides trained me on how to “tune” into the river and how to look for signs of Peacock Bass.I caught a 16 pounder and WOW what a fight!They carry a camera to record your catch too! You know what was really great?Your Guide was at your disposal to fish whenever you wanted! Even at night to catch the Monster Catfish. As far as the food and drink goes…..well it’s the Ritz Carlton on the Amazon! They even had dinner on a sandbar complete with candle light and BBQ buffet. There was one thing I found negative about the trip, however, and that was “leaving”.When the trip was over we went back to Manaus for our flights home, again without a hitch! I had such a great time and can’t wait to go back!“

Mr. Mike Leech, "Honoree, IGFA Fishing Hall Of Fame" has this to say about his recent visit to the Amazon with us:

“Every angler needs to have a Brazilian Peacock Bass trip on their “Bucket List”. I have been fortunate to have been there several times. My most recent trip was with Amazon River Adventures aboard the Amazon Santana. It is, without a doubt, the most comfortable of all the river boats, (the Santana is more of a yacht than a river boat) departing from Barcelos. The Guides are amazing in their knowledge of the area, the crew bends over backwards to see that all our needs are met, the special theme dinners are over the top, and the overall organization is exceptional. Move this adventure to the top of your list!“
