What to Expect
We are the ultimate Big Game Fishing operation in the Galápagos Islands. We chase Marlin and Tuna action year-round in our 30’ John Allmand yacht exploring the sea mounts and drops that put this location on the international fishing map. The underwater topography of the Galapagos islands and the convergence of three major marine currents create tremendous upwellings of plankton. These ideal conditions attract sardines, ballyhoo and other baitfish, which makes the fishing spectacular. Striped, Blue and Black Marlin fishing is world renown. The ideal season for Marlin is between December and June when the seas are calm and warmer, however from April to June larger female bites are more common. In accordance with the national park regulations, all Marlin fishing in the Galapagos is strictly catch and release.

If you want to savor the fruits of your labors, topwater Tuna action and Mahi Mahi can be found all year as well as nearshore fishing for Amberjack and Wahoo. We also have all the gear for bottom fishing for Galapagos Grouper and Snapper. All of our Galapagos Fishing charters are custom designed for your group based on the season and your interests. Whether you want to hunt for big game like Marlin or troll for Tuna we have the gear and local knowledge to provide you with the best Galapagos fishing experience possible.

Our Galapagos Fishing charters include land and water transportation, high quality fishing gear including heavy tackle, outriggers, poppers and jigs, meals on board, a two person crew and a bilingual naturalist guide.

Book today and we will personalize your Galapagos fishing adventure specially for you!
