What was the difference the crew Captain Marcelo and First Mate Anthony. We started out trolling for fish and caught a... More

My Son, 2 Son-in-laws and I went for a 1/2 day fishing trip on Driftwood Fishing Charters. What a great time everyone had. My son quickly caught a 50 pound Wahoo and as we prepared for more the captain received a distress call from a boat that had lost engine power. We responded and towed the boat to dock near... More

Captain Anthony and Aujean were amazing. They taught us and helped us to each catch a fish, there were 5 of us on board. They made a great family day into an amazing family adventure. If your in Aruba look up the Driftwood and let these guys take care of you.

Had a great day on the ocean. Captain Marcel and first mate Marvin knew exactly where the fish were and how to catch'em! The seas were a bit rough on the way out but that is the way it goes. A half-day of fishing yielded 9 tuna and 1 mahi-mahi. One nice feature of this charter is that they own... More

Marvin (mate) and Captain Marcelo were great on this very rough trip (7/1/16).. We had 5-6' seas while we were fishing and so we only were active for about 1.5hrs. However, the two of us managed to land 9 Yellow Fins and 1 Mahi with Marvin's excellent help. To top it off, we ate at the Driftwood Restaurant that night... More

Had a great time. Didn't catch much as one of my daughters got very sea sick. Crew was understanding. Still brought in 2 mahi.

Took Living Easy on June 30th with Captain Doddy and Jose. Captain explained that fishing was slow to the North but good to the South. The only thing was it was going to be rough seas to the south. We chose south and were not disappointed. He got us on the fish!! Finished the trip with 10 yellow fin tuna,... More

My husband and I did an afternoon charter with Anthony and Marcelo a couple weeks ago. It was the best thing we have done in Aruba! And we have been twice for a total of 15 days doing plenty of activities. Anthony and Marcelo were amazing. They really know what they are doing and are very professional and passionate. We... More

Went out for the morning charter, rough seas so couldn't go out too far but we still caught 4 fish, one big wahoo and 3 barracuda and a big boat! Mostly though I'd like to say the crew was absolutely awesome!! We were only out an hour or so when a fellow fishing charter had engine problems, we broke off... More
