Galapagos Marlin Fishing Report
The Galapagos Islands are a true year round fishery for striped marlin. Seas do tend to get rougher come June to November. However, for those willing to fish the summers they are often rewarded with being the only boat on the water and a decent amount of fish. This summer is extra special with waters staying warm with El Niño event happening. We are also running a summer special with 20% OFF from now until August 31, 2023 for any complete package to fish or tour the Galapagos.

June 4, 2023– Stephan Nave and family headed for West side of San Cristobal and bottom fished catching smaller reef fish and 3 nice wahoo 40 to 60 pounds along with a tuna and mahi mahi. It was a fun day with kids getting the better part of the action
