If you ever ask for Marlin in South America, almost every time you will hear someone speak of Ecuador. Whether it is at Salinas or Manta, fishing at this destination is a must for Marlin seekers.
Salinas is the #1 tourist destination in the country, with beautiful beaches and 5 star hotels, kind of like Cancun. It has been home for the biggest sport fishing fleet in the country since the 1950’s with several world records.
Regarding sport fishing, it is important to mention that Manta has always been an important place. We need just to mention Jorge “Pancho” Jurado and his 1,014, 17 years world record, blue marlin caught out in Manta on May 12, 1985.
The waters around “Isla de la Plata”, which is about 25 miles off Manta, had registered many world fishing records, including several billfishes, groupers and the current Makerel Pacific Sierra established on March 24, 1990.
We have opened the operation of a Sportfishing Center that provides exclusively Hatteras and Bertram, first class hotel and accommodations at affordable prices and a crew with more than 20 years of experience. All of our equipment is Penn International, and we also have some Finn Noors reels.
We have a daily Boeing 727/200 service to Manta, whose airport has been just optimized as part of an American- Ecuadorian Agreement and is technically able to operate every day during the 24 hours.
The United States Dollar is the Ecuadorian legal currency which gives the country a monetary stability while facilitate our visitors’ excursion who do not have to worry about exchange rates.
Our fishing schedule will begin at 05:00h, departing from the docks, start fishing at 06:30h and returning to shore at 17:00h.
We can also organize shared tours for Salinas and Manta, and all of the “Marlin Boulevard” which begins in Cabo Blanco, Perú up to the south of Colombia, and also organize excursions to cities in the Highlands, as Quito and Cuenca, both declared World Heritage by the UNESCO, to Guayaquil, the principal industrial and commercial center of Ecuador.
We have begun our activities from February 2002 an and we are sure that our fishing package (accommodation, boats, crew, travel fares) will be a sensation.
