Just a short 8 mile run from the port town of Puerto Villamil you will find a drop-off that goes from 600 to 6000 feet. This incredible wall will help push squid and a whole food chain of bait near the surface. On a common day of fishing you will witness many birds, seas lions, sharks and other predators picking off smaller baitfish.

Unlike the famous shallower banks where we fish for striped marlin in the Galapagos, the blue marlin tend to prefer the deeper drops near Isabela Island. On a typical day of fishing anglers will usually average 1 to 3 bites of blue marlin but days with 5 to 10 bites are not uncommon. The average fish from Isabela Island is 600 to 900 pounds with granders often in the mix.
