Due to the large amount of interest John will be hosting trips to in Cuba in April 2023. We will be fishing Isla de la Juventud from the live aboard yacht Jardines Avalon F I. The trip will include overnights in Havana on either side of your fishing trip. Contact John to reserve your spot, there is only a few left!
In March 2022 John will be hosting a trip back to the Seychelles. This trip is fully booked. Stay tuned for a trip summary blog and lot of pictures!
In February of 2020 John will be hosting a trip back to Cayo Largo Cuba. The first visit in February 2018 was such a fun experience that John vowed to go back (read about that trip and see the pictures in the blog recap). Discovering Havana, the Cuban people, the amazing group that came with, and the stellar fishery made for an unforgettable adventure.
We’ve had so much excitement about this trip, that this time John will be hosting two weeks; Feb 22 – 29 and Feb 29 – Mar 5.
The permit capital of Cuba! Cayo Largo is in the South Central region of the Cuban Archipelago, and it’s one of the finest permit fishing destinations anywhere in the Caribbean. When you finally arrive in Cayo Largo you will be surprised to find a natural flats environment that has scarcely changed over the last 1000 years. The incredible Cayo Largo (Long Key) fishery came under the management of Avalon Fishing Center in 2008, and has since developed into a great overall permit and bonefish destination (with SOME tarpon in the area as well). The fishing season on Cayo Largo runs from November until August. The beginning of the season from November to January is very good, with plenty of bonefish (especially big ones) on the flats and mangrove areas. Fishing for tarpon and other species can also be good. This is a great time to plan a trip to Cayo Largo, as the weather is much warmer in Cuba than in Europe or Northern America. Peak fishing season is from February to June, when all species are present in the area. The typical week when fishing Cayo Largo is a 7 night / 6 fishing day week starting Saturday and ending the following Saturday. Additional days in Havana or on other parts of the island can easily be arranged and itineraries can be fully customized.
The 2018 trip, hosted by John Holman, was a pretty epic adventure! A week in the Seychelles followed by a week in Zambia, with a day fishing in Dubai on the way. To get all of the details read the blog post.
