Blue Marlin Lodge is the pioneer and leader of Sport Fishing charters in Ecuador. Our customer can choose from two internationally known and legendary fishing destinations for world records such as Manta and Salinas. Salinas is the #1 beach resort of the country with all the infrastructure to satisfy every angler's needs, and it was the pioneer sport fishing destination of Ecuador with several World Records of Stripped Marlin, Tuna, Grouper and Wahoo (#1 Wahoo spot in the World).
90 miles north of Salinas is Manta. It is important to state that it has always been an important angling destination. We only need 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 been succesfully running the operation of a Sportfishing Center that provides exclusively Hatteras and Bertram, first class hotels 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 practice Tag & Release with all billfish.
