Upon receiving the invitation to visit San Cristobal, Galápagos from Juan Kayser and his Galapwonder Excursions, I immediately started to formulate a plan to include my son Zachary, who would turn ten just days before our departure. The trip took place February 25-March 2, 2020. With a little scheduling and a plan for school work, we were all set for our big adventure. Zachary certainly didn’t mind missing four days of class either. The trip would consist of flying just over four hours from Miami to Guayaquil, Ecuador. A one-night hotel stay in Guayaquil before we boarded a 1 hour 30 minute flight the following morning from Guayaquil to San Cristobal in the Galápagos. Elliott Stark, the editor of InTheBite, was along for the ride, too. The big plan was sightseeing day one, then two full days of fishing and one inshore day of snorkeling and bottom fishing.
From this point, I’ll share plenty of images on what turned out to a very rewarding and amazing trip. Zachary was able to reel in a couple of nice striped marlin, see a variety of plants and animals and discover a skate park on San Cristbal. Thanks again to everyone who made our trip one to remember. We saw a bunch of cool stuff- Darwin’s first island, animals and a skate park, now that’s evolution.
In the evening, Zachary learns to make pizza, (from scratch) – The Lobster Shack. Chef Willie was very helpful.
On behalf of Zachary, Elliott and myself, I’d like to say thanks again to Juan Kayser and the entire Galapwonder staff. Great times!
That’s all for now folks!

The latest creation is the Marlin Release Ruler belt. “They are just another way to show one’s passion for marlin fishing. In addition to a useful true-to-scale ruler, which captains and mates are always needing, the belts also contain the formula for estimating marlin weight and some useful identification tips. We also included the HUGE section at 20 inches – the holy grail for a grander measurement at the base of the marlins tail,” says Wills. MSRP $34.99

TAMPA, FLA. – October 28, 2019 — Iconic American boat builder Bertram Yachts is delighted to announce today that the company is planning to expand its range of offshore fishing boats to include a comprehensive lineup of outboard powered products.

A Captain’s Testimonial
“Like clockwork, I would clean my a/c strainer every Tuesday for years until we installed the ElectroSea Clearline System,” says Captain Harry Schafer of the 66′ Viking Sea Wolf. “Based in Jupiter, Florida, the water around our dock can get really warm, especially in summer, and the barnacles, sludge and sea critters would thrive in our a/c system. After installing the ElectroSea system, I only check on my a/c system about every five weeks now. When I do check it, I hardly clean anything, no barnacles or gunk. I’ve had the system installed for about six months and can honestly say this will change how the industry thinks about descaling saltwater systems. I haven’t had to call for a/c service since we installed it. I’m also a veteran captain, and in my opinion, this is one of three major improvements to boating in recent years. The Sea Keeper, the Spot Free water rinsing systems and now this, the ElectroSea.”
The above is a testimonial from Captain Harry Schafer, Viking 66′ Sea Wolf. If you would like to ask Captain Schafer any questions regarding the ElectroSea system please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to pass it along.
