Package Itinerary

For saltwater fishing there are two main spots in Ecuador: Galapagos and Ecuador´s mainland coastline

The Galapagos Islands are the perfect getaway for those looking to bring family or have a good time with friends. World famous for the extensive migrations of all types of pelagic fish, Galapagos is a true billfish destination promising good shots at blue, black and striped marlin. Complete vacation packages are available for all budgets and all group sizes. The small town of Puerto Ayora, home to all our anglers is the economic center of the archipelago, with the highest population and greatest number of tourist facilities.

Best Seasons:
Striped marlin: January, February, March, April, May, June, October, November
Blue marlin: January, February, March, April, May, June, September, October, November, December
Tuna & wahoo: January, February, March, April, May, June, September, October, November, December

In the coastline Salinas (Guayas Province) and Manta (Manabi province) on the pacific coast are the main centers for deep-sea fishing. The cool and nourishing waters of the Humboldt current providing a constant supply of baitfish are the outstanding ground for hooking dolphinfish (coryphaena hippurus), barracuda (sphyraena indiastes), blue and black marlin, yellow-finned and long-finnned tuna (thunnus albacares, thunnus alalunga) and a lot of other species.

Most hotels and tour agencies in the following resorts offer fishing tours. Salinas, Playas, Manta, Puerto López and Bahía de Caráquez.
