Blue Marlin Charters Ecuador

Make an adventure out of your next trip to Bahía de Caráquez and go fishing withSouthern Star Cruises and Puerto Amistad Yacht Club. With experienced Captains at the helm, you’re in knowledgeable and experienced hands.

These waters are known for Mahi Mahi, Goliath Grouper, Black Marlin, White Marlin, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Sailfish, Longbill Spearfish, Swordfish, Albacore Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, Wahoo, and more. You’re likely to troll and bottom fish using light or heavy tackle. For the more adventurous among you, there’s spearfishing.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 30’ Cruiser with a capacity for 4 passengers. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. Rods, reels, and tackle are covered by the charter, as well as lures. Live bait is on offer, but it’s good to ask about this so you know if you’ll be catching it yourself. Looking to get the whole family outdoors? Kids are welcome! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available.
our Fleet of 5 boats are at your service.

A First Mate will be there to make sure everything is running smoothly. A 10–20% tip is customary to show your appreciation for their hard work. There’s no need to buy a fishing license, just show up ready for a good time! Some fish have special regulations, including when you can keep them. If you don’t know what to expect, ask the captain.

It’s never a bad idea to bring bottled water, sunblock (non-spray), and sunglasses. There will be some drinks and snacks on offer, but let the captain know if you wish to bring your own. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, just be sure to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Now and then the fish might get away, but a day on the water never should. Time to make it happen, with Puerto Amistad Yacht Club!
