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

I've fished for years, almost exclusively fresh water. This was my first trip to Aruba, and my first charter experience looking for something other than bass, trout, or landlocked salmon. Captain Marcelo, Anthony, and Argean took us out for a four hour afternoon excursion. Although we didn't land any fish over 10lbs, we had an enjoyable time pulling in four... More

Thank you Anthony and Jose for a fabulous fishing trip last week. The other couple we took on this trip had never been fishing before. On the 4 hour trip we caught 3 Wahoo, the biggest being 29 lbs. The guys cleaned and scaled it for us. Took it back to our time share and made a fabulous dinner. Great... More

Captain Dody, Jiro and Argen are extremely professional and after about a half hour on the water they put us on some big Wahoo. 35-40 POunds. We also caught Mahi Mahi, Tuna and a Rainbow Runner. Driftwood is the best fishing charter, HIGHLY recommend! We went to the Driftwood Restaurant later that day to eat the catch. Best restaurant on... More

A local favorite. So we tried it out it was really good and service was great. The catch of the day is what they catch that morning so flavor is definitely good.
