Isla de la Juventud

Cuba’s hidden treasure, Isla de la Juventud or the ‘Isle of Youth’ is the second-largest Cuban island lying approximately 145 km south-west of the mainland where the Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean meet. Quite simply, it is renowned for its Tarpon fishery which rivals the best in the world, with the ability to sight cast to fish between fifteen to over one hundred pounds on the flats and open water, with big numbers of shots had each day.

Accessible by plane, helicopter or boat, the remote Isle of Youth is also believed to be the location of the well known Robert Louis Stevenson novel, Treasure Island. Consisting of around one third National Park, there are also protected Marine Park areas in the Caribbean Sea nearby that help to foster a rich biodiversity and marine environment for both resident and migratory Tarpon.

Including schools of Bonefish, Permit, Snapper, Jacks and Snook, the varied habitat is also beyond the reach of any land-based operations or boats, making it a very unique and remote fly fishing destination.

Fly Odyssey has been hosting trips to the Isle of Youth every year since 2014 from the comfort of a variety of motherships including the 110ft Avalon One, experiencing the amazing saltwater fly fishing on offer. With extensive sand cays, flats, islands and mangrove channels, this amazing location is also complemented by time spent in vibrant and soulful Havana.
