Blue Marlin Charters Of Ecuador 28'

Take a trip with Blue Marlin Charters on a legendary fishing spot. Since the catch of the “Great Marlin” in 1953, in which the 1.560 pound Black Marlin was caught in Cabo Blanco, North of Perú, the “Marlin Boulevard” became known among anglers world wide. Now you can join the race and try to break the record. Captain Gene Tatum will take you on this adventure any time of year.

You’ll be fishing from a custom 28’ flybridge boat. This spacious fishing machine accommodates up to 6 anglers but it’s best if only 2 fish at the same time, so your lines don’t get tangled. She’s suitable for long trips, since it has everything you need for a comfortable day out – a private bathroom, a bed, a fighting chair, and access for disabled anglers.

Targeted species on these trips are what every angler dreams of! Closer to the shore, you can target Roosterfish and Yellowfin Tuna, but a few miles further you can encounter Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Swordfish, Sailfish, and different types of Marlin. Landing any of these fish is an unforgettable experience and an achievement to be proud of.

The main fishing techniques are bottom fishing and trolling but you can also try out spearfishing from June–August. Make sure to request this in advance, so the equipment can be prepared on time. This type of fishing is available only on multiday trips.

Your fishing equipment is fully covered. Your snacks and drinks can be prepared for an extra charge or you can bring your own.

Spend a day with Blue Marlin Charters and see why so many anglers choose this fishing spot year after year!
