Anglers fly to Manaus, Brazil, arriving on Friday and overnight, then travel to the fishing area Saturday morning via air charter and fast boats. Anglers are returned to Manaus the following Saturday. Departing flights from Manaus should be scheduled for any time after 2:30 PM on Saturday. (Keep in mind that any charter delays could cause missed flights.) The safe bet would be to plan on staying in Manaus Saturday evening and depart Manaus at any time on Sunday.
