I am 4 months pregnant, so this was a challenging decision, but we decided we would go for it because... More

Had a great day fishing on the Driftwood Charter boat with Anthony and Jose. We caught fish, and laughed all the way. These 2 guys were fantastic hosts. Can't wait for my next trip to Aruba, this charter will be on my to do list.

The crew was very interacting and friendly. Although a couple of us got sick, they were very understanding and we still caught 4 fish. We will definitely try this again the next time we come back.

My 10 years old wanted to do fishing so I booked this tour for him and turned out 3 out of 4 of us got sick. We took the medicine before we board and it still doesn't help. He caught two mahi mahi and had a great time. Once in a lifetime experience, but wouldn't do it again. Great services.

The guys from Driftwood were professional and accommodating. We went on a morning trip (August 10,2015). The seas were rough but everyone had a great time. We caught wahoo, mahi, barricuda, and even hooked a sailfish but it broke the line! We had the fish prepared at Driftwood Restaurant that night. A fantastic meal to end a fantastic day!

My dad, brother, and I took the 8-12 trip with Marcelo and Jose. Those guys were awesome, although we only caught two mahi mahi and two false albies, they did everything possible to get us fish. All in all still a successful and fun trip. The Driftwood restaurant prepared the mahi wonderfully in several different ways. Next trip to the... More

Our crew was Anthony, Jose and Ebbay who were awesome. They knew what they were doing and all we had to do was reel them in. Even if we didn't catch fish it would have been a great trip. As a fisherman in Miami I learned some new tricks. Definitely going back to Aruba and definitely calling Driftwood! Thanks guys,... More

we had a great day fishing. Captain Anthony and first mate Gregory made a rough trip enjoyable. Although we had pretty rough seas that day we managed to catch two mahi mahi. Thanks again for a great trip boys!!

The staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way to accommodate all of us. Boyfriend enjoyed the catch of his Wahoo and was delighted to have it cooked by the Driftwood Restaurant Chef. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Hope you guys enjoyed the El Dorado.
