4 times to Aruba and 4 times charted with Driftwood. 8 a.m. charter with Captain Jairo and Mate Jose. Great trip, but they are all great when you catch fish. We caught 2 Baracuda, Mahi and Wahoo, and coming back decided to drop deep (approx 600 feet) and bottom fish for Grouper, which we caught a yellow fin grouper. Jairo... More

My wife and I shared a charter with another Tripadvisor reviewer and it was a great experience. The captain and first mate took us trolling and we picked up a Wahoo and barcuda, then we casted and pulled up about 60 Amberjacks/Blue Runners. All in all, the captain and first mate did a great job and made our fishing experience... More

Enjoyed a morning fishing trip with Anthony and Captain Brooks. They were knowledgeable and friendly guys. We had two young boys (ages 8 and 10) and they had a great time. We ended up with 42 fish and lots of memories.

Captain's Marcalo & Jaero are the best in the business! My daughter & I went fishing on a 4hr charter on a very windy, rough day. My daughter's very first fish was the 49# Mahi, Mahi, the largest caught in several months. It took her 26 minutes to land it. What excitement in the boat with hi-fives and hugs all... More

I did a full day trip with captain Marcelo and mate Anthony. The seas were 16 to 18 foot swells but the fishing was great. Anthony is a master at keeping the lines in the water and tangle free even as rough as it was. If you are ever in Aruba look these guys up. They are some of the... More

Fished today March 18th, 2017 with Capt. Marcello and First mate Sergio. Two outstanding individuals. Both were so very helpful and friendly. My gf and I had a great time today. Fished the afternoon with them from 1-5. Had a quick bite and miss with a small tuna. Headed to a spot after and jigged for amberjack. Fishing was fast... More

This was everyone's favorite part of our whole Aruba trip, hands down! Jose, our captain, and Greg, our first mate, took great care of us! We had a blast riding through the waves & then started catching fish on our afternoon. My teenaged boys reeled in 6 fish total -- a mahi-mahi, 2 tuna, a blue something (I forget) &... More
