Friday December 12, 2014. I enjoyed a great day of fishing aboard the Driftwood. Marcelo, Anthony, and Miro were fantastic. We caught Barracuda, Tuna, Snapper, Grouper, Trigger and Jack fish. They made the day a great experience and we caught fish while trolling and drifting. I will certainly be back for a full day trip again next year. Paul K.

This year we went on Driftwood's second boat called Living Easy with Captain Doudie. His brother came along to help as well as the other crew member. We had a fantastic time and caught 6 baraccuda. The Driftwood then cooked them up for us for dinner and made us ceviche out of the fish. Plus we took one fish back... More

I am a bit late to writing this review! My family and I (6 total) went on the Driftwood Fishing Charters back in December 2013. We had a GREAT experience! The crew was very informative and fun to be around. I have a brutal fear for birds and they were joining in on making fun of me (in a good... More

We went out for a half-day afternoon fishing trip with Marcelo and Jose, and had three fish in the boat in our first hour! On a day when the sea was a little rough, we had a great time on the Driftwood. In between the action, we had very nice conversations with both Marcelo and Jose. After the trip we... More

Went out for a half day afternoon charter with Anthony & Marcelo. We had a beautiful day on the water and was hot. While I wish we could have seen more action on the rods, we still managed to reel in a 10 lb Mahi which was cooked for us at the Driftwood Restaurant later that day. Both Anthony and... More

I had scheduled our first trip of the week way before we got to Aruba. I wanted to make sure to get a full day to fish for Marllin. We had fished for sailfish the last two years and this year we wanted to venture out to the other side of Aruba to go for Marlin. We had anticipated this... More

My Wife and I went fishing with Anthony and Marcelo on October 14, 2014 and we had a great experience. As she has never been deep sea fishing before, we did the morning 4 hours, which was perfect. We were lucky enough to hit a few schools of Mahi Mahi and caught 25 total fish (24 Mahi Mahi and 1... More

This was my fifth time chartering with the Driftwood, and Marcel and Anthony did not disappoint. They are just great guys that understand the area and do a great job locating fish. This is not your typical boring bottom-feeding boat that is jammed with cruise ship tourists. This is sport fishing at its best. Like last year, we visited in... More

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
