My wife and I had the pleasure of going on a full-day fishing excursion with Marcelo and Anthony on April 10, 2014. Marcelo is a fantastic captain, and Anthony never stopped cleaning the boat and tending-to the lines. The 8 hour excursion allowed us to go further out from Oranjestad to an area that does not receive as much fishing-pressure.... More

We went as a group of 4 and made a reservation for the morning 1/2 day trip(4 hours) a week before we left for Aruba. Herbert immediately replied to me saying that the day we requested was not available and offered us the same time the next day. As our luck had it, it was a great decision. 15 minutes... More

If you want to catch fish, this is the charter you want. We went with Marcello and Doddy who were experienced and entertaining for an afternoon exclusion. We caught 1 barracuda and 5 wahoo with 2 over 40 lbs. This was our second trip with the driftwood and will be going out with them again next year on our yearly... More

I took my wife and two young boys fishing with Driftwood Fishing Charters. I was a little concerned with kids how things would go (it was their first time to the ocean) but I was very happy with our trip. My wife started to get a little sea sick so we headed for calmer waters and still managed to catch... More

We fished with Driftwood Fishing Charters for two half day bookings. Fishing was slow, but the crew; Doddy, Ruddy, and Marcelo made it happen, these guys are amazing fisherman and true ambassadors for Aruba and fisherman. They made the experience!!!!! We boated barracuda, grouper, amber jack, and I got lucky and caught and released an amazing sailfish. I would definitely... More

What an awesome day! It was a really rough day on the water but we still caught two barracudas and 2 wahoos! The captain and first mate did everything possible to ensure we caught fish! Great guys! I can't say enough about the dinner at the Driftwood restaurant! We had more fish prepared for us then the eight of us... More

My DH and I are avid fishers. We have a lake property with a pontoon boat where we enjoy spending our days trolling for the local 'catch of the day'. We've done deep sea fishing on one other occasion, but not in the Caribbean. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Ruddy and Doddy of Driftwood Fishing Charters. We decided to... More

Our family had the opportunity to use Driftwood for our fishing experience while on Aruba for vacation this February. Both Doddy, our Captain and Ruddy, our first mate did everything possible to ensure a wonderful trip. We landed quite a few Tuna, Bonito and 1 Wahoo. We have done a number of fishing trips on vacations and all of us... More

We went on the Driftwood today. Captain Marcel and Rudolf worked very hard in rough seas for us. I have chartered many boats before and have never met a more friendly and experienced captain and mate. They were great. We caught 3 King Mackerel and right as we were ready to pull the lines in hooked up and caught and... More
