For navigation, there’s a modern GPS, fishfinder, and radio technology that will keep you on the right track. The onboard facilities include a kitchen, toilet, and flybridge. The boat’s equipped with outriggers, snorkeling equipment, a fighting chair, livewell, and an ice-box. A first mate will also be on board.

Some of the intriguing species you’ll target include Scorpionfish, Tuna, Marlin, and Black Seabass. Using light and heavy tackle, you’ll be trolling, jigging, and popping in order to catch them. Both you and the crew will be keeping your respective catch, but you’re absolutely free to release yours if you wish so. Kids are more than welcome to join the trip and there can be no smoking while on board.

Captain Fernando covers you for rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures, as well as snacks, drinks, and lunch. Just bring your fishing license and you’re set to go.

    Marlins can be a rare catch in North and Central, but not in South America. They can be found in Galapagos Islands and weigh 150 lbs on average, so they are fun to chase on light tackle, fly, and spinning rods. The captain, boat, tackle, and crew are all tournament class. The trip is suitable for both novice and experienced anglers. You'll get San Cristóbal airport transfer, lodging (6 nights in the best hotels), breakfast, and 8 hours of fishing per day.
