The Blue Quill Angler and Nomadic Waters have teamed up for a trip of a lifetime to the Brazilian Amazon. A Nomadic Waters Expedition to the Rio Negro River is one of the most unique adventures in the world. This world-class experience includes living aboard one of the finest motherships in the Amazon, eating delicious Brazilian food, and being guided by a top notch group of Nomadic Waters professional guides.
A trip to the Amazon is a life-changing experience! The accommodations are aboard the incredible yacht Umuarama. 23' wide and 122' long, she holds everything you could possibly want from a mothership. 3 levels include multiple bars, inside dining, an entertainment room with TV, and an observation deck. It has 6 standard cabins, 2 small cabins and 2 double occupancy cabins. All staterooms have A/C, private bath and WI-FI.
Guests have the opportunity to fish for some of the jungle's most exotic fish, including multiple species of peacock bass, arowana, wolf fish, and more. Each morning two guests and a guide head into the jungle for the day, then return to the Mothership at night for appetizers and dinner. Expect to see (and hear) Macaws every day. In the Rio Negro you will literally see a dozen or more a day migrating between their roosts. Green Parrots are everywhere, as are Caiman, Spider Monkeys and Howler Monkeys. If you stop fishing and look closely, you can see Toucans almost every day, but they are silent and can hide extremely well.
