Join Jon Covich on his 25th trip to Cuba

Join Jon Covich on his 25th trip to Cuba, fishing Cuba’s Canarreos Archipelago. This chain of islands stretches from the Island of the Youth in the west all the way to Cayo Largo in the east. Our live-aboard yacht will make several anchorages during the fishing week, starting in the west, where we will largely target resident Tarpon. During the second half of the week, the yacht will move to the east, where the flats are expansive and host some of the best Permit and Bonefish habitats in the Caribbean.

Our group will stay aboard the Avalon Fleet 1 yacht. At 110’ feet in length and with nine cabins, we will live in comfort during our stay. Price includes transport to and from Havana to the port, conservation and fishing licenses, six days of guided fishing in double skiffs, and all meals and most drinks aboard the boat.

Most of Cuba’s limited fishing spots are sold out for 2024. The outfitter, celebrating its 30th anniversary of doing business there, offered significant discounts for 2024 trips. This is a rare opportunity at a very fair price.

  1. I am a US citizen and yes, we can travel to Cuba now (Biden administration quietly changed the rules this summer). Flew United down via Newark and the plane wasn’t even full and looked to mainly be people visiting relatives over tourists. The trick for independent travel is you need to travel under the “support the Cuban people” reason (as opposed to say journalism, conference, etc), which is defined by the State Department in detail but in practice means don’t stay in government hotels/ sit on a beach all week, which we weren’t going to do anyway. Instead we stayed in the homes of Cuban people (“casa particulares”) and did things like going to art galleries, tours of Havana led by a Cuban, ate in great Cuban restaurants, etc. (That said if you want to do the illegal for Americans stuff I don’t see how anyone would know or stop you, and no one’s been prosecuted for doing something in Cuba and it’s probably unenforceable. No point in flying via Mexico etc btw, Cuba doesn’t care what you do, it’s the USA that has the rules for its citizens and residents.)
