We spent 5 days in Aruba and this fishing trip was by far one of the highlights! Marcel and Anthony were great, from the time we pulled away from the harbor they were helpful and very personable. By the photos you can see we had a good day of fishing!

Soon we were trolling 5 lines. Had a bunch of hits but managed to catch one 25 lb Wahoo. Very enjoyable time and... More

So our family are not really into fishing but my son got a fishing charter as a gift for us during our recent trip to Aruba. We had the boat to ourselves (myself and two sons) and had Anthony and Jose as our guides. The trip out to the ocean was a little choppy so if you get seasick this... More

Not for the faint hearted, this trip has some serious swells but the fishing is amazing. We caught 12 Mahi Mahi, which we later ate (prepared 3 different ways) at Driftwood Restaurant! So much fun, but make sure to take your Dramamine if you get sea sick. Hold on tight and be prepared to reel, reel, reel! At one point... More

Three of us had a wonderful morning despite rough seas. Marcelo and Anthony were consummate professionals and their welcoming personalities gave our morning outing a great feel. Their intention was clearly to take care of us and make it a perfect day. We genuinely liked both gentlemen, who coupled professional seriousness with sincerity and humor. We caught a barracuda and... More
