    Additional information

    Tucupita Expeditions C.A.

    Is a family run operation specialized in nature and adventure travel in The Orinoco Delta Region in Venezuela with offices in Tucupita and Margarita Island.
    The idea of building the lodge was born in 1991 with the actual construction starting on September,12,1992. The camp (Orinoco Delta Lodge) grew from a couple of Warao Indian style houses, one for eating and one for sleeping with shared bathrooms to an attractive complex of 37 individual comfortable cabins with a huge dinning and bar area overlooking the river.
    The Orinoco Atlantic Lodge is the latest addition to our lodges and camps in the Orinoco Delta region. The Orinoco Delta Lodge and Simoina Camp have been operating since 1992 . The lodge is strategically situated for circuits between the 3 locations, sports fishing specially Tarpon, and a fantastic stop for sailing boats.

    During our 15 years in the area we managed to develop and maintain excellent relations with the Warao Indians by providing employment, medical assistance and educational support. Our mission is to maintain a low impact operation and work in harmony with nature in this beautiful but fragile part of the world, the Orinoco River Delta.
    We offer a wide range of excursions and expeditions in various areas; scientific, bird watching, film and documentaries production. Our record includes BBC, Belgium and German Television and a major French TV station CINETEVE.

    Our resources feature:

    37 cabins with beds and private bathroom.
    A rustic but comfortable deep jungle camp: Simoina Camp in Waranoco, for the adventure type 3, 4 and 5 nights expeditions.
    A fleet of canoes and strong powerful fast boats capable of transporting up to 120 passengers.
    Top of the line guides, both Warao Indians and local.
    Thank you for your support and Think Earth.

    The Orinoco Delta has a substantial tarpon population, and the recently opened Orinoco Delta Lodge is the first camp established in a prime location for excellent sports fishing. Our camp is located at the NE point of the delta, in the brackish waters of the Orinoco and Atlantic and is moments away from the Caribbean sea; Grid Reference: 09.57’N, 62.16’W.

    An hour from the camp by boat and we are inside the calmer waters of the delta, where we have locations for fly fishing and you can cast a line for small tarpon. If you wish to venture into deeper waters, then we have opportunities for offshore fishing; where you can find the tarpon (Megalops atlanticus).

    The Silver king tarpon is considered one of the great saltwater game fishes, not only because of its colossal size, but because of its fighting spirit when hooked; it is very strong, making spectacular leaps into the air and a real challenge for the sports fisherman.

    The OAL exists to provide accommodation, food and refreshments, English and French speaking guides and the means of transportation necessary for the excursion. We can provide kit for the more simple fishing experience however, we suggest that you bring your own fishing gear. We can arrange excursions for a single day fishing or we can organize a more varied expedition that stretches over several day’s.
