Cayo Cruz is located at the eastern end of the Gardens of the King archipelago bordering the north coast of Cuba. This whole area has long been pristine and protected. Some anglers in the know come here just for the great shots at Permit, often swimming in the company of rays. Others also know that the average Bonefish from this area is large.....many fish are between 5 and 7 pounds. And still others wait for the annual tarpon migration, when big fish fill the channels and cuts between the islands, and are susceptible to the fly.
Right now, anglers have 2 choices when fishing Cayo Cruz. They can, all through the year, stay at La Casona in the small town of Brasil, and make the daily hour long voyage to and from the flats. Or, through Spring and Summer, they can board the Avalon 1 yacht which anchors near some of the best tarpon channels.
All of that will change this Fall. New resorts have been under construction at Cayo Cruz, and will be open for business as of October 1, 2017. With five star ratings, guests will not only be comfortable, they will also be two minutes from the marina where they will board their flats skiffs each morning. With these new arrangements, the outfitter is offering promotional rates for Cayo Cruz that are very attractive. Contact me soon.....these weeks should fill quickly.
