This fishing and sight seeing adventure was one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had traveling. Michael's Nomadic Waters is second to none when it comes to providing his clients with exceptional service. The food was outstanding, the fishing guides were the best I've ever known and the mother ship and crew went out of their way to make us as comfortable as possible. The Amazon is such a fabled place and to participate in all its nature wonder with Nomadic Waters is the ultimate.

Of all the places I have traveled, this was the best organized outfitter and trip I have experienced. My group was fully paid before Covid and delayed 2 years. Through that time we were updated regularly. When rescheduled, we were given great advice on preparation. We were greeted at the airport in Manaus when we arrived at 3am and everything was handled seamlessly. Michael has gathered an amazing crew of fishing guides, cooks, boat staff, and everyone else necessary to handle any contingency through the trip. Then there is the amazing fishery, Amazon jungle, and chance to spend time with the people of the river. Fantastic!

This was a perfectly excellent trip. We caught beautiful Amazon fish: Peacock Bass! The crew on the boat was very caring and took care of everything. They were happy and it showed in everything they did for us. The fishing guides were tops. The Williams family was also amazing making the travel as easy as possible and our stay on the boat comfortable and just plain fun. We are thinking of doing it again!

This is the fifth year I have fished with Michael Williams and the Nomadic family. I have fished both of the fisheries more than once. The fishing demands I hone my casting skills (or lack there of) on the first day. If I'm not careful I can spend the first day in the trees apologizing to my guide for all the trouble. However, not once does my guide make me feel like the amateur I know I am. If anything, he makes me feel like I am better than I know I am! For someone on a fishing vacation, your own cheerleading section is a huge motivator. The crew is top-shelf: very attentive, extremely encouraging, and they know where the fish are and how to get even me to find and hook the big ones. The accommodations are first class: rooms are comfortable, there is hot water for those of us that insist on a hot shower even in the tropics, your clothes are washed daily, and the Brazilian food is typically delicious with a good variety to choose from. Michael Williams leaves no details to chance. From the moment you land in Brazil, he has you covered at all levels. This year I fished with my son which, in and of itself, was priceless. We will definitely be back!

I have fished with Michael and the Nomadic crew 4 times now. After each trip I leave thinking that’s it, it can’t get better and each time I return to the Amazon I find more reasons to come back. While taking complete care of every step of your journey to and from Brazil, Michael finds a way to keep the same crew coming back season after season and despite the few words you share with them the bond is unbreakable. You will not find more professional or harder worker guides that will put you on fish day after day and quite possibly are more excited than you when you land them! The food is amazing and more options than you can believe could come from a small kitchen to feed as many people as it does! The boat itself is immaculate and comfortable and your room rivals most hotels you have stayed at. If you could have a complaint ( and you shouldn’t ) but it would be that you didn’t work hard enough for the opportunity and experience afforded to you by Nomadic Waters.
