Come Fish in The Galapagos Islands For These Species:

Striped Marlin

Striped marlin can be a rare welcomed catch in North and Central America. Not in South America. They are the most numerous and common marlin in Ecuador, Galapagos Islands and Peru. Most striped marlin average 150 to 200 lbs so they are fun on light tackle, fly and spinning rods.

Blue Marlin

Choose from the best exotic destinations in South America to fish for this incredible marlin. We have a destination that is just right anytime of the year. Looking for big blues, high numbers or fish of a lifetime?

Black Marlin

The rarest of the Pacific Ocean marlin species is found throughout the Galapagos Islands. San Cristobal Island has black marlin 300 to 800 pounds caught every year from December to May. Isabela Island is a good option for possible shots at the largest of black marlin in the Galapagos Islands from January to May.

Bigeye Tuna

One of the most delicious tuna species found abundantly in South America. Hands down the Galapagos Islands has the best big eye tuna fishing in the world. Fish the spawing and nursery waters of the Pacific for this vibrant and strong tuna. It’s popularity on poppers and light tackle is growing by the day.

Yellowfin Tuna

Yellowfin tuna are one of the Pacific Ocean’s most common tuna. Incredibly agile, strong and deep diving when hooked. These tuna unlike their big eye cousins tend to spend most of their life above the thermocline and prefer warmer waters.

Wahoo

Part of the scombridae family of fish, wahoo are know for their fast runs and high jumps. The white flesh and high fat content make it an excellent table fair. Wahoo hunt in packs usually and getting double, triple and quadruple bites is not uncommon. Most fish average 20 to 50 lb but can grow in excess of 120 lb.

The Galapagos Islands have some of the best fishing on the planet for marlin, tuna, wahoo and grouper.

Pioneering The Incredible Billfishing In The Galapagos Islands:

Ecuagringo was the first company to research and offer custom fishing packages in the Galapagos. Braden Escobar started his research by fishing the waters in 1998 looking for the best areas.

Our first boat started chartering in 2000. Since our first anglers we have continued to lead the way with thousands of billfish releases. More marlin have been caught by anglers fishing with Ecuagringo boats than anyone else in the Galapagos.
