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.

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.
