New Cuban fishing trips for Americans ready to book

Posted: 20-May-16 14:43

American travellers in search of a unique way to see Cuba now have another choice. Fly-fishing trips are now ready to be booked, with excursions launching later this year. This new option marks just one more way that travellers have to experience the island nation, while still conforming to U.S. travel regulations.

New Cuban fishing trips for Americans ready to book

The Cuban tourism and travel market just received another boost, thanks to a new and interesting trip being marketed towards those in search of outdoor recreation in what’s considered one of the world’s most pristine fishing areas. The fly-fishing and mail-order outfitter Orvis recently revealed it plans to offer adventurous fly-fishing trips to Cuba starting in October.

As described in an article published on NOLA.com, writer Todd Masson outlines details of what those fly-fishing trips will entail. According to Masson, the package starts at $6,150 for a four-day guided fishing trip near the Cienaga de Zapata National Park. The package will also include bilingual anglers that are local to the area.

It goes on to reveal that Orvis promises to take anglers to “wild landscapes and saltwater flats that have been protected for decades, creating a haven for bonefish, tarpon, permit, snook and snapper.” The author notes that the pristine fishing areas of today may be due to long-standing regulations that prevent many Cubans from owning boats.

He promises that the fishing will be incredible for those who choose to go on the trips and he predicts that plenty of anglers will book fishing trips to Cuba in the near future. According to the Orvis website, visitors will experience fishing in“expansive, rarely-fished saltwater flats.”

While Masson reveals Cuba has maintained its status as a desirable location for cay-hopping anglers to visit for some time, it’s been against the law for U.S. residents to go there for more than 50 years. Regulations began to be ease starting in late 2014, allowing for Americans to currently travel to Cuba with trips categorised as people-to-people tours.

The author writes that Orvis maintains its fly-fishing trips will comply fully with American and Cuban regulations. According to the company website, the trip will include time to interact in Havana with local artists, conservationists, entrepreneurs and musicians, allowing for the exchange of ideas and education.

Cuba is one of the best places in the Caribbean to sports fishing lovers. More popular excursions for travellers, staying in coastal resorts such as Varadero and Cuban cays with the aim of going fishing, are available by different tour operators. Check Cuba Holiday's excursion here.
