Ever wanted to fish Cuba, but don’t know how to access this phenomenal fishery? Well now is the time to enjoy the expansive and relatively untouched Cuban flats. We are working with Cuba’s foremost fly fishing outfitter, Avalon, to ensure an unforgettable and smooth experience.
Located on the north shore of the eastern province of Camaguey, the Cayo Cruz fishery is an enormous system of flats, lagoons and pristine estuaries. The fishing area is virtually untouched and represents one of the cleanest and most biologically diverse ecosystems we’ve ever fished. This is one of the other reasons we have chosen this destination. It is still pretty much untouched and has only seen anglers for five seasons! The fish are plentiful and aggressive. Most other destinations are now heavily fished and have been fished that way for over 15 years.
Cayo Cruz demonstrates all the characteristics of a recently discovered, virgin fishing territory – large numbers of fish, good sizes and their evident lack of exposure to flies and leaders. Add to this the natural beauty of the cays and of the water and you have a truly memorable place to fish. There are very few places on earth where guests can fish for big bonefish each day and also get shots at tailing permit at the same time. This combination may take place in other locations but not with the consistency that is virtually guaranteed at Cayo Cruz. It is a rare day when you don’t encounter and get shots at permit. The permit will range in size between about 8 and 30 pounds. Cayo Cruz guides help land over 200 permit a year, which is the highest number in all of Cuba. Resident tarpon between 30 and 90 pounds are accessible every day of the year off of Cayo Cruz. In addition, barracuda, jacks, snapper, and sharks keep the anglers line tight and the excitement high.
The Albemarle Angler has access to the lowest pricing for Cayo Cruz offered anywhere in the industry.
Isla de la Juventud is a protected marine park and boasts some of the largest populations of eager, user friendly tarpon on the planet!
For nearly three decades Turneffe Flats has been known as one of the Caribbean’s finest saltwater fly fishing destinations.
