Fishin' with a Mission®

This pre-Thanksgiving vacation is a prime week for peacock bass and is first come first serve. This special trip will be full of prizes, give-aways, and the best fishing and adventure around.

Let's go catch the world record peacock bass - 28 lbs of top water explosion.


During your trip, you will meet and sponsor a native family with a small micro-enterprise loan.  Our goal (with your help and others) is to help 100 families in the Amazon achieve economic self-reliance through simple $150 micro-loans by 2011. 

It will change their lives.  It will change yours. 

You could be part of it.  If you and the other 1 million anglers traveling to international fishing destinations every year added a $150 micro-lending mission to your fishig expedition, the $150 million impact would be world-changing - and would help lift 215 million people out of absolute poverty by 2015.


This trip is a private and fully accommodated 9-day fishing and adventure excursions in the middle of the Amazon rainforest jungle. Guests stay on a chartered houseboat and go out day-to-day on smaller tributary boats.

Our itinerary is as follows:

Day 1 (Saturday): Fly from your home airport to Manaus, Brazil with one layover in Atlanta.

Day 2 (Sunday): Fly to Barcelos near the equator and board "Julyana" or "Karen" (luxury houseboats with double occupancy rooms, AC, private bathrooms, and catered Brazilian cuisine). Head off into the jungle tributaries of the Amazon.

Day 3 (Monday) - Day 8 (Saturday): Fish for world-record peacock bass and catch up to 15 other species of exotic fish (one boat and guide for every two anglers). Other daily options may include: Trekking through he rainforest jungle, visiting native villages, bird watching, and spotting caiman at midnight.

Day 8 (Saturday): Fly from jungle tributaries back to Manaus. Relax in Five Star Tropical Hotel, tour city sites, buy souvenirs, eat at fine Brazilian restaurant.

Day 9 (Sunday): Depart Manaus on int'l flight back home (or extend trip to partnering Brazil destinations). Arrive home Sunday morning and share stories of your exotic peacock bass adventure in the Amazon.

After registering, you need to purchase international airfare. We help you get the best flight possible.

Depending on where you are located in the country, you'll want to make sure you catch the Delta flight out of Atlanta that flies direct to Manaus. Be sure to allow at least a 4 hour layover in Atlanta to mitigate potential flight delay problems.
