For fly and conventional fishers, mobility and the capability to bypass low water and natural barriers is the key to untapped peacock bass fishing in the most remote reaches of Brazil's Amazon Basin. Drawing from only 4-inches of water, River Plate’s floating cabins can comfortably navigate these barriers and reposition daily to unfished areas throughout their exclusive privately leased fishing grounds on multiple waterways north and south of the equator.
Using a unique fly-in floating cabin system, RPA offers fly fishing only and conventional angling departures in the clear and black water systems of the Brazilian Amazon. Superb access to secluded rivers, massive lagoons and forgotten oxbow lakes keep anglers in solid numbers of big aggressive fish.
Comfortably appointed double occupancy ultra-shallow draft live-aboard guest cabins with full amenities and dining/bar barge host anglers deep in the amazon jungle. Stunning white sand beaches become one’s scenic front porch and tropical social gathering area.
