Went out for a four hour fishing charter in the afternoon. The crew - Anthony and Jose - were awesome! We only caught one fish, but enjoyed the ride and the conversation. Sometimes you catch a lot of fish, sometimes you don't, but the company is what makes the trip. Highly recommend Driftwood Fishing Charters!

We only caught one fish when we went out but the trip was awesome and Anthony and Jose were very helpful and entertaining. If you are in Aruba you will have to go on an fishing excursion with the Driftwood Charters and ask for Jose and Captain Anthony and you will not regret it.

If you are in Aruba, I highly recommend going deep sea fishing and choosing Driftwood Fishing Team as your charter. The captain and deckhands (Marcelo, Anthony, Arjean) were first class and it always helps when you catch fish! The sea was rough the day we went, however it is my understanding this is the norm for June. Be prepared for... More

Last Wednesday 6/24/15 we had the good fortune of booking this boat for a morning fishing trip. Although the seas were pretty rough the fishing was very good. My two boys and myself caught tuna ,a mahi mahi and the best part for myself was landing a 56 lb wahoo !! The crew was amazing with a big shout out... More

Wonderful fishing charter! In just four hours we caught a 4 1/2 foot Wahoo and a 1 1/2 foot blackfin Tuna! Very good eats! We will definitely visit these guys again! Great experience.

Our family had a great time on Princess Kate with Captain Anthony and Jose! They were very friendly and professional. It is amazing to watch how hard they work to make sure we catch fish.

A little late with the review, but better late than never... We booked a morning trip for 5/31/15 and the weather was great except that the wind makes for some big swells offshore-welcome to Aruba. It was our first experience with big game fishing and our Captain Marcel and Mate Sherwin could not have been better! They worked hard to... More

Went for half day 1:00PM - 5:00PM. Only 2 bites entire trip. Caught one Mahi Mahi about 6 lbs. Only one other bite, a Wahoo that got away. Just couldn't seem to locate where the fish were. Capt. Dodi & crew very cordial. Driftwood restaraunt did good job cooking up fish for us.

First, I like to complement the crew! This was our first trip out deep sea fishing, and we weren't sure what ti expect. They did everything to make us comfortable. At first the fish weren't biting, but once we got out a ways, we caught our first bonita. It was small, but it was a start. About Twenty minutes later,... More
