Fishing trip

It was a Mahi Mahi kind of day. We had a blast, and they even do the cooking. The crew of the Princess Kate was great and a lot of fun.

We splurged on this adventure and spent $400 to hopefully catch some fish and have some fish tales to tell :-) When we saw just how big this boat was, and all the different fishing techniques Rudy and Marcelo utilized, we realized that the price was easily justified. When the first Wahoo fish took the bait, and my wife got... More

We had a great time deep sea fishing! Our captain and first mate were AMAZING! We caught plenty of Barracuda and Wahoo, and the fish was delicious! I definintely recommend letting Driftwood cook everything up! They make a wonderful platter of fish!

Anthony and Marcelo very good crew. We hit a school of Mahi and it was very exciting. The filet the fish you catch and you can eat it at the Driftwood restaurant. Very cool.

Caught some mahi mahi and barracuda, saw a bunch of big dolphins jumping , crew was great , put forth great effort in trying to catch fish , got about 6 or 7 big bites only landed two but it was fun catching cool fish like that.

This fishing trip was a ton of fun! Unfortunately we took the afternoon trip and didn't catch anything big- just a small bait fish! But the guys on the boat were knowledgable and extremely friendly! I'd fish with these guys again any day!

I chartered the driftwood for just myself and girlfriend. The crew was excellent and very friendly. We could not have had a better time. Managed to catch 2 mahi mahi, 2 wahoos and 2 bonitas in just 4 hours. The crew cleaned some of each for us and we were able to have the resort prepare them for us. The... More

Yes, you read that right. After coming well prepared with Dramamine in our system, we were yacking in a bucket within an hour. If you've ever had seasickness, you know there is nothing worse. We booked to go with our 2 kids and my inlaws. I couldn't wait to get out there and catch my fish. But, the sea had... More

We had dinner at the Driftwood in downtown Aruba. The place was crowded. The food was good - fresh fish daily, but the portions were small. They recommended their sister restaurant the Red Fish which we tried one night. We loved it so much that the whole family went back the night after.
