The Galapagos Islands is known as one of the top destinations to target Striped Marlin

Over the last two years boats have had Double-digit marlin raises from January thru July. The off season has also been productive despite the cold weather and big seas.

Fishing in San Cristobal, Galapagos (the fishing capital of the Archipelago) is World Class not only because of the high number of Striped Marlin that you can raise in a day but because these pristine waters are also home to Blue and Black Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo and Mahi Mahi.

We provide a variety of fishing options such as: pitch baiting, trolling, popping and jigging inshore and offshore.
Our packages include all fishing licenses, lunch, drinks (beer and soft drinks), Alutecnos rods and reels, other high-end gear, bait, and a bilingual crew who have a vast knowledge of the area. Our focus is to ensure that every guest will experience that ultimate fishing adventure that everyone talks about. Memories that will last a lifetime.

Our boats are outfitted with Alutecnos 50’s and 20’s as well as Penn Slammer III spinning gear. We also welcome anglers to bring their own gear if they prefer.

Do you think you have what it takes to go toe to toe with 500+ Blue and Black Marlin? 3 major currents move bait fish and other marine life into the area and leave it filled with one of the highest concentrations of Striped Marlin in the South Pacific.

Theses islands truly offer you our guest an adventure of a lifetime.


My first visit was in February of 2017.  We had so much fun we went back again this year.  The fishing and snorkeling is off the hook.  The hotel staff, fishing captains and crew were all wonderful and fun to be with.  The experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity.  Catch monster Marlin, Grouper, Tuna or Wahoo, then visit the giant Tortoises or go see a blue footed Booby and an array of other exotic seabirds all in the same day.   There just is not another place like the Galapagos on earth and if you like to fish, dive, hike and explore, this is your bucket list trip.
