La Reina Lifeaboard Cruise

The perfect yacht for smaller groups

La Reina is a comfortable yacht, fully refurbished at the end of the 2005 season. It is sixty-nine feet in length, fully air conditioned, with 4 double rooms and 4 bathrooms. The large upper deck, where meals are usually served, makes a fine place to relax before diner with a cocktail or a good Cuban Cigar. There is  a new water maker that allows  to hava unlimited amount of fresh water each day. The showers now have plenty of hot water to make the accommodations as comfortable as possible .

The chef on La Reina,  goes all out to provide delicious fare for guests. Dinners are seafood oriented with fresh mutton snapper and grouper being readily available. Other traditional Cuban entrees like chicken and pork are also part of the regular weekly menu. It is very easy to prepare vegetarian meals on request and the chef serves a variety of salads and fruits each day. Everyone looks forward to the desserts like our famous Cuban flan, and delicious rum cake.

The guides live aboard the La Reina along with the guests, giving  the flexibility to travel around this huge island system in order to find the absolute best fishing.  The ideal group of anglers is four, with two guides and two flats skiffs available at all times. For those guests that are keen to try all kinds of fishing techniques, from fly fishing to spin fishing, trolling along the reef, or bottom fishing for snapper and grouper, the La Reina is a superb choice and is the ideal setting for a smaller groups of anglers.

Daily Routine:

Unlike many of the traditional lodges, the fishing hours on board La Reina are totally at the discretion of the clients. Fishing day normally begins with breakfast at 7:00am, and  guides will be ready to depart for fishing from 7:45 am on. Most of the flats to be fished are within fifteen minutes of the yacht, and it is always nice to take a lunch break in the comfort and shade, back on board the boat. Relaxing for an hour or so before fishing the long afternoons, especially during the warm summer season, is always a good idea.

Many of the more remote flats can produce outstanding fishing and  guides will suggest the evening before that you pack a lunch and stay out all day in order to access some of the more distant flats and estuaries .

Clients can fish late into the evening if they like, since it is usually only a short run to get back to the La Reina. At Jardines, the morning winds often calm down in the afternoons, and fishing in the late afternoon can be superb, especially for bonefish. There is never a daily gasoline limitation for guides, so you can run longer distances to fish remote flats, especially on those days when you opt to stay out all day.

The fishing weeks on board the yachts run from Saturday to the following Friday. The season in the Jardines de la Reina is from mid-October to end of August. A normal week includes five full days of fishing and one to two half days depending on your schedule and mode of transportation to Jucaro. Jucaro is the port town where clients will board the La Reina for the trip to the Jardines de la Reina.
