​The Xeruini River Expedition is our most exclusive trip for anglers interested in fighting the biggest Peacock Bass of them all, the Açu (Cichla Temensis). We will start our expedition on a Saturday morning, and it will take us the entire day to reach the mouth of the Xeruini River, which in the located in heart of the Brazilian rainforest, approximately 320 miles NW of Manaus. Saturday is the day to enjoy the journey, get rigged, meet your partners, have your guide assigned, enjoy a caipirinha on the boat, and most importantly, have a good rest.

Once we arrive to our starting point, we will have exclusive access to about 60 miles of river. No other angler will be seen for the next 6 days. During the trip you will likely hear the howling monkeys, see a giant otter, spot some huge alligators, hear the sound of exotic birds and other creatures, and have lots of fishing tales to share.

We will fish in pairs out of Jon boats and our mothership will move upstream daily; meaning we will always be fishing different areas. We can fish from Sunrise to Sunset, but each group will decide their on schedule each day. 


All meals are served on the Mothership, except in occasions that the anglers prefer to take sandwiches for lunch, for a longer ride.  Weather permitting we will try to make a beach lunch for the group during one of the days and a Luau during one of the nights.


On the afternoon of Friday we will start to head back to Manaus, with ETA around 10am of Saturday. We will then drop off the anglers at the airport or at the hotel, depending on their needs.
