Galapagos Islands are closer to the anglers from North America than one may think!

Getting to the Galapagos Islands is as easy as a 4 hour direct flight from Fort Lauderdale or Miami to Guayaquil, Ecuador and then a 1 hour and 40 minute flight to the islands.

The best months for calmest seas to fish are December to June in which you will fin 3 foot to flat calm most days. The weather tends to range from 69 to 85 F most days.

San Cristobal Island is the most popular marlin destination in all of South America offering more year-round shots at striped marlin than anywhere on the planet.
