Zapata Peninsula, Cuba w/ The Gig Harbor Fly Shop & Blake Merwin
March 10th – 17th, 2018

The Zapata Peninsula is located on the south-central coast of Cuba. Most of the peninsula is a national park and makes up the largest protected wildlife area in the entire Caribbean. Noted as one of the best bird-watching destinations in the world, it is home to 175 bird species, 900 species of plants, and 31 reptile species including the Cuban Crocodile. The landscape of this area is very similar to Everglades National Park in Florida.
The Georgiana is ideal for groups of 6 – 8 anglers. There are 6 cabins on board, so many anglers will enjoy private accommodations. At 100′ in total length, the Georgiana has very comfortable cabins and well appointed bathrooms and showers. Georgiana is anchored in the deeper water adjoining the western edge of the San Lazaro flats. From the live-aboard, anglers will travel to different fishing zones each day, always seeing a variety of habitat and fish species.
