Four of us went out on the Driftwood with Marcelo and Jose (GREAT guys) on Monday Sept 15th. We booked a half day leaving out at 8AM. The fishing was a little slow at first due to the less than perfect weather, but Marcelo and Jose kept us entertained. Then out of the blue we hung a really nice Sailfish....first... More

Just got back from a great trip to Aruba. Had a 1/2 day charter with Driftwood. 4 hrs was plenty of time for Marcelo to put us on the fish and Anthony to make sure we caught them. 2 of the 12 fish we caught were Mahi Mahi which we had cooked for us at the Driftwood Resturant. Excellent meal!... More

Went out with Anthony and Dobby as our crew and had a fantastic time! Caught a Sailfish and two Bonita during our 4 hr. trip on 9.1; took the whole family with us (kids are 9 and 7) and they had a blast. Will mist definitely use Driftwood next time I'm in Aruba.

Went fishing on Aug 17 with Anthony and Marcelo (4 hour trip). Once the lines were rigged and in the water, we hit Mahi Mahi in 5 minutes. We ended up with over 30. Since the Mahi Mahi were not real large (2-6 #), Anthony broke out 2 light weight rods and reels (8# test). This made for some fun... More

On our honeymoon, we made sure to get in on some salt water experience, I scheduled a trip months in advance with them to ensure a great choice. Arriving on scene, Capt. Marcelo and mate Anthony were very professional, I too run trips of my own in freshwater and these guys were a class act, running this boat smoothly, and... More

We fished with this charter on Monday 21st July 2014. We had done much research online including TripAdvisor. 5 Chaps got a taxi to the Renaissance Marina where we met the Captain Marcelo and his First Mate Anthony. We had booked a 4 hour morning charter for $400 for up to 6 people. All Tackle bait and soft drinks were... More

In a island so plenty of restaurants like Aruba to find this in a corner of Oranjsteed is really an happy opportunity. The service is perfect and the food is really good. The price is medium to high but quality is really high. I suggest to try in your stay in Aruba if you like fish.

My wife and I charted a boat after hearing about Driftwood charters. We did it in a day, so with short notice they accommodated us with a great boat and killer crew ( thanks Marcell and Anthony, you guys rock! ) we caught some beautiful mahi mahi and were treated like it was our boat. You can't beat that! Next... More

Even with 2/3 of our group succumbing to seasickness and an early return to port, my son managed to score 5 fish. Our crew was fabulous - friendly, knowledgeable, helpful! Definitely would go again given the opportunity!
