Marcelo, Anthony, and Rudolf were the best captains ever! They were very helpful and we were very successful. We caught 5 tuna, 1 Bonita, and I caught a 20 pound mahi mahi! I had never been deep sea fishing and this was my first time. I would love to do it again!

This was the one poor experience throughout the entire trip. It was unseasonably windy while we were in Aruba. We had booked a fishing charter weeks before and didnt think anything of it. We arrived, they took our money and took us on a boat after the Aruban Govt issued a warning to fisherman that day based on wind conditions.... More

The crew of the Driftwood, Anthony, Jose and Argean, gave us the best time we had on the island. Caught a 40lb Wahoo, couldn't be happier! The restaurant prepped it four ways and served it with several sauces. What a "Catch of the Day"!

We took a 4 Hr morning charter, my two boys, brother-in-law and Father-in-law and had the best time. Marcello, Anthony & Jairo had us on the fish all morning. The guys were fun and great with the kids (11 & 7 yrs). Will definitely be out next time we are in Aruba. Later that night the restaurant cooked up the... More

We chartered the driftwood on April 16, 2015. Anthony was our first mate and Rusty was our Captain for the day. They both did an excellent job working hard to get us some fish. Herbert, the owner, was great and was able to work with us on the timing of our trip. We came in on a cruise ship and... More

We had Marcelo as captain and Anthony as first mate and they were awsome. Anthony worked his heart out to make sure we had a relaxing and successful trip. Caught 5 wahoo, 2 yellow find tunas, 3 black finish tunas, and a barracuda by lunch time. I would definitely recommend these guys.

I for one really appreciated that Rusty and Anthony took us out. It was pretty windy and rough, but I think that is normal for Aruba. If you like fishing and the beatiful blue water, then you have to book this trip. By the way it is way cheaper than through your cruise ship and you go with only the... More

We loved our morning fishing trip with the Driftwood and will most definitely do it again when we get back to Aruba. The boat was awesome. The crew was fantastic. Our captain was Dodi... I didn't really chat with him much because he was up top driving the boat but my son went up there a lot and really liked... More

My family and I were so excited to go deep sea fishing with Driftwood. I had read so many great reviews. We had a beautiful day, but unfortunately, 3 of my kids got sea sick. The crew was so great taking care of them and asked if we needed to go in and cut our trip short. We decided to... More

We went out with Marcelo and Arjean on 4-5-15 and had an excellent experience. Both the captain and the mate worked very hard for us to catch fish. They changed out baits frequently and trolled as many as 6 lines (one deep) with a variety of baits plus a squid chain off of each outrigger. This is definitely a top-notch... More
