Capt Peacock’s Journal: Macaws

Sometimes our trips go to the birds.

And that’s a good thing.

Today I’m referring to Kita.

She fished all day with her husband Hunter and although they caught tons of Peacock Bass – the biggest of which was pretty close to twenty pounds – she was most excited about the macaws she saw.

And she saw a lot of them.

She told me that she and her husband had just pulled into a cove to tackle some Peacock when, “The jungle just exploded in blue!” Kita continued saying that a flock over 70 blue macaws flew upward from the green void and that the sight left her breathless. She shared the experience with all the other guests and new friends that evening and was still talking about it the next day at breakfast.

Brazil’s Amazon is a very special and unique place and it’s experiences like the one Kita shared that keep people coming here.

I know this because I know Amazônia.

I’m Capt Peacock.

Capt Peacock Helps Raise $1,000,000 To Promote The Outdoors

Capt Peacock Yachts & Expeditions helped raise $1,000,000 on October 12 at the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation’s Wine, Wheels & Wildlife event in North Carolina.

The CSF’s mission is to work with United States Congress, governors, and state legislatures to protect and advance hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping.

Capt Peacock’s CEO Leonardo Leao said of the event, “We couldn’t be more pleased to do our part to promote the great sport of angling and are honored to assist the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation in their mission.”

Capt Peacock’s donation of a Signature Package for two to Brazil’s Amazon aboard the Rio Negro Queen sold for a record amount at the auction and the winner wasted no time in making plans head south for the Trip of a Lifetime.

“The winner and his wife are ecstatic about their purchase,” Leao says. “And can’t wait to venture to Brazil to cast a line for a World Record Peacock Bass.”

Capt Peacock will next assist the CSF at the annual California Wine, Wings & Wildlife event in July.

Capt Peacock To Raise Money For Young Life Ministry

Leonardo said of the event, “Ever since the formation of Capt Peacock, it is been important to us to give back to, not only the Amazon and the people that reside there through our MARIA program but also to, Texas where our offices are located. We are a Texas entity and give like proud Texans do!”

Capt Peacock’s Journal: The World Loves Brazil!

The World Cup.

The Summer Olympics.

And now the Rio 2016 Paralympics.

It seems as though all eyes – literally, the world’s – have been on Brazil.

And that’s a good thing.

Because as much as our guests over the years have associated us with the best Peacock Bass fishing on the planet, truth is that Brazil offers a whole lot more.

Especially where Capt Peacock operates, in the state of Amazonas.

The largest state in Brazil, Amazonas is roughly twice the size of Texas yet holds only four million people.

Half of these live in Manaus, a city known as the Paris of the Tropics.

And for good reason.

Manaus is home to some of the best and most impressive museums in all of South America, offers upscale shopping and exciting nightlife, and is known throughout the world for its warm and friendly people. Not only that but Manaus manufactures electronics, chemical products, and has a thriving shipping industry. Manaus also exports Brazil nuts, rubber, jute, and rosewood oil.

The best way to experience this metropolitan delight?

Let me show you.

Let me tailor an adventure for you and yours that shows you the sights and sounds of Manaus, the ones that only a local knows about.

I can fly you over the city in a private helicopter, take you shopping, or carry your bags while you shop the city out.

The world is watching Brazil.

But only I and my team can show you what the world only has gotten a hint of!

I know this because I know Amazônia.

I’m Capt Peacock.
