We are 4 empty nesters from Atlanta who frequent Aruba. We were scheduled to go on J-string, but they took another family and Mahi Mahi's family no-showed. The boat in dock was spewing strong diesel fumes, but the captain assured us it was no problem. It was a 1968 42' Hatteras. We left dock with excellent captain Carlos and first... More

I have fished all over the world in some amazing places like Venezuela, Mexico, Bermuda, Costa Rica, Hawaii and the Bahamas so I know a little about offshore fishing. If you are an avid fisherman find another boat. We charter the 42' hatteras in the Mahi Mahi fleet for a 4 hour chartered in January. The captain was very nice... More

We booked a 6 hour trip on the "sea iesta" on November 29th 2016 for 7 guys looking to catch some fish. We were not disappointed! After a brief introduction to the boat, the captain (Peter) and mate (Carlos, also captain of the "mahi mahi") wasted no time kicking off the lines. Before we even left the harbor, the outriggers...

Had the pleasure of going out on the mahi mahi and I have to say one of the best boats I've been on! Not to much action while out but in no way can I blame that on the crew! The captain as the mate both tried to get us on fish. We did get one wahoo on the boat.... More

The boats Diesel engine exhaust permeates outdoor area. The engines smoke and the fumes were so bad we had to stay indoors for the whole trip. When I came home everyone noticed my clothes smell like diesel fuel. We only caught one fish which we understand that is the chance you take when you go fishing. would have been a... More

We had so much fun! The hospitality of Juan Carlos and Peter was top-notch! We only caught one fish on our trip, guess they were just not biting today! But I can assure that the crew were on top of changing bait and making sure we caught something! We had a great time and will recommend you to our friends... More

The staff was sort of nice. Our captain was Rudolf (I think) and his first mate was actually very cool. The captain said go see the owner and the owner was yelling about the credit card the Ritz gave them not working and I told him 5 times I was paying cash. The sea wasn't rough, probably 5 feet. It...

After reading 20+ reviews of this charter boat, I chose it because of the boat size, a 32' diesel inboard with a cabin, 2 side chairs & a fighting chair and its Captain, Roberto, and 2 mates, Rodolfo & Tusi. All are native Arubans with over 100+ years of fishing these Carribean waters. More importantly, they catch fish! The sport... More

On FishingBooker we left this review: "We called 24 hours ahead because sea was so rough! They said it was fine! All 7 of us were sick in the first hour! We were out 4 hours out of the 8 that we booked! After calling the day before questioning the situation they never offered us any type of reimbursement! The... More
