Isle of Youth , Cuba

Stunning fishing for multi flats species as well as large Tarpon with excellent accommodation.

The Isle of Youth is perhaps best known for its extraordinary tarpon fishing and there are very few places in the world where you will have more chances to cast to big tarpon on the fly. The bonefish and permit fishing are worth the visit on their own.

A Maximum of 14 rods have exclusive rights to fish this entire pristine and most importantly, protected and remote, Marine Park in the Canarreos Archipelago.

Bonefish are of an excellent average size of around 4lbs, with tarpon frequently tipping the scales at 100lbs plus and the guides’ vast knowledge of permit, an incredibly pernickety fish, mean that Grand Slams are certainly achievable.

As well as the wonderful array of flats that one can either wade or pole, there is an amazingly productive reef with a range of species; grouper, bonito, barracuda, jacks and snapper will all come readily to a well-presented fly. The trolling can also provide some extraordinary fishing with yellowfin tuna, kingfish, wahoo and shark being just some of the fish that will test your tackle to its limit.


Avalon Fleet I accommodates up to eight guests in eight deluxe king cabins offering queen sized beds with seven private bathrooms.  Each cabin has air-conditioning, electricity points and storage as well as breathtaking views of the Caribbean sea and beaches. 

There is a spacious and comfortable open plan lounge complete with audio and visual equipment, dining room and bar area on the boat deck.  The majority of your meals will be served in the dining room.

The menu has an Italian and Cuban influence and is accompanied by international wines, cocktails and of course, Cuban cigars.  This really is an excellent space for relaxing and enjoying a few sundowners after a day on the flats.
