December is the start of the marling season in the Galapagos Islands as waters warm up and seas calm down. Blue, black and striped marlin arrive and congregate on the sea mounts and island drop offs in good numbers. Most blue and black marlin in Galapagos average 400 to 800 lbs. Striped marlin average 150 to 200 lbs so there is no shortage of large fish. The tuna fishing and wahoo bite is spectacular on light tackle. Flat seas make it easier to deep drop for group and soon for swordfish in the daytime.
Site seeing, swimming and photographing the wildlife is terrific as seas are very comfortable to be in. Ecuagringo produces custom vacations for the whole family to enjoy. Even if fishing is not your game there are plenty of alternate activities from diving, snorkeling, beaches, hiking, horseback riding, exploring tunnels, island hopping, camping and much more. The Galapagos are one of the safest destinations in the world with virtually no crime.
