Carpe Diem Natal - Fishing & Nature

Carpe Diem Natal takes you fishing around the brackish waters of Natal, Brazil where you can land iconic fish such as Tarpon, Snook, Mangrove Snapper, Jack Crevalle, and more. These fisheries are teeming with fish year round, and the crew will work hard to make sure your trip is worthwhile.

Most of the time, your guide will pick you up at your hotel, free of charge and will take you to one of the hot spots. Once onboard it doesn’t take long before you get the lines in the water, usually about 20 minutes. There are several guides on this team, so both local anglers and fishermen arriving from abroad are welcome.

Trips aboard 15’ Metalglass aluminum fishing boat run year round, with the season peaking from October to May. Boats are powered by 15 HP Mercury engines, and may be fitted with a fish finder. There is an ice box onboard as well as a live bait well. We carry an assortment of international fishing gear. Boats can carry up to two anglers on fly fishing trips and three/four anglers on standard fishing trips. Kids are welcome to join and preferably be 6 or older. The crew will provide the vests.

You will fish around rivers, salt water marshes, lagoons, and the coastline of Rio Grande do Norte, in close proximity of cities such as Natal, João Pessoa and Pipa. You can try jigging, spinning, trolling, and salt water fly fishing. All trips are catch and release.

The crew will provide sandwiches, tropical fruit, as well as mineral water, soda, and fresh squeezed juice. You don’t need to purchase a fishing license and the crew will supply bug repellent. Bring a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses. You can pay with cash, in local currency, euros, and dollars. And if you’re from abroad, the crew speaks English, Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese. Feel free to contact the captain to arrange lodging and extended stays after you book.

Get your friends, grab your camera, and as the crew says ‘seize the day!’
