San Cristobal Island Fishing Testimonials

I wanted to shoot some of the amazing wild life of the Galapagos islands, Braden and his team made sure that I was able to get all the images and more of what I needed on my shoot with them. I highly recommend them if you are planing a trip to the Galapagos islands or any South American destination.

Just letting you know we made it back to the states with no trouble. I need a day or two to get my ducks back in a row but I plan to put together a more detailed email to you with some thoughts on the trip. Quickly I will say, we all had an absolute blast. I was very impressed with your operation, your professionalism and will be proud to promote your business through our Ocean Isle Fishing Center. I have a few thoughts on some details that may improve some aspects but overall I can say we were all extremely satisfied with our experience.

By the way, whatever you are paying Julio Rosas is not enough. That guy is a superstar and in my opinion an extremely important part of the experience. He is an impressive and entertaining guy that went above and beyond anything we could have ever asked for.

I enjoyed our trip to the beautiful Galapagos Islands. My fishing was very successful as I caught 5 Marlin including a record (for me) of 4 in one day. I enjoyed Ronnie as my Captain and also was pleased with the mate.

I very much appreciated having someone take care of me every step of the way. This was especially helpful since my Spanish is not very good! The tours and tour guides were all very nice. The Iguana Crossing Hotel was lovely and I especially enjoyed our time there.

I have only two recommendations. The Hotel Miconia was very convenient for the fishing but it was very noisy most of the nights I was there. I understand that there were celebrations and political things going on that week, but the music kept us awake most nights until 1, 3 and even 5 in the morning! Not very good if you are getting up at 6 to go fishing. Maybe another hotel would be better.
Also, the snorkeling/boat trip on Isabela the first day was with a large group and the boat was very crowded. I much preferred the private tours.

Thank you again for all your help and we will definitely recommend your company to anyone we know that would be considering the Galapagos for a future vacation.

Thank you very much for a wonderful experience in the Galapagos. For Patrick and me it was one of our best fly-fishing trips yet!

I am currently working on an article that I will have published in a local fly-fishing magazine and I will also have the trips on our website as soon as I finish the info doc.

I took my family to the Galapagos Islands on a vacation of a lifetime. We fished, dived and explored San Cristobal and Isabela Islands. This was one of the most amazing experiences that we have done as a family. I recommend not only fishing but take enough time to enjoy the ample snorkeling, diving, exploring and island hopping that this company provides. Ecuagringo also provided tours to the Andes Mountains, Quito and the Middle of the World on mainland Ecuador. This is my outfitter of choice for everything in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.

I enjoyed my fishing trip to the Galapagos with you and was well looked after during my stay. I would recommend Ecuagringo to anyone contemplating fishing.

I want to thank you for your kind hospitality and the truly professional ability which you demonstrated throughout our entire stay.

Needless to say the fishing was great and I thought your crew did an excellent job. Your ability to take command was at the highest level throughout our stay with you. I commend you for your efforts.

Thanks again and stay in touch.

I don’t really know where to begin praising you for the OUTSTANDING package you put together for my father and I. From arrival to departure everything was “top shelf”!! I’m not sure which part of the adventure we enjoyed the most. It was ALL very exciting!! Thank you again for making this father and son trip so very special.

Hey Braden,
It was my pleasure and I wanted to thank you for all your efforts on our behalf. We had an amazing time regardless of the of the hurdles we faced. I am confident that we are going to have two great shows out of it. I have looked through most of the footage and we have some amazing stuff in there!

I am looking forward to coming back and spending some more time there…

Howard is doing good and I saw him just before I left for Panama…

All the best Braden,

Jose Wejebe

We had a great trip and are back safely. Braden, Ronnie and the mates were on the ball. Also, Fernando was very professional and helped us tremendously on the mainland. Please feel free to use me as a reference. I will be gald to talk to anyone you wish about our experience. Also, please send us T-shirts as soon as you have some made. Braden said you ran out… I think the cost for a few shirts is good advertising… I’ll be glad to pay for the shirts and shipping.

Thanks again for all your efforts.

Isabela Island Fishing Testimonials

I lost count of how many blue marlin we raised during out trip. If you want to catch giant blue marlin Isabela Island is the place to go.
Rick Riggle

I caught my first grander blue marlin out of Isabela Island in the Galapagos. Fishing for large fish is my passion and I cannot think of a better place to try than the Galapagos. Ecuagringo makes it enjoyable and that is why I plan to return every year.
