Hardly Workin

Oranjestad, Aruba
Oranjestad, Aruba

Hop aboard for an exciting fishing trip with Hardly Workin – you will forget everything but angling, and will see why they are called this soon enough!

Captain Reginald is so good at putting you on the fish that the rest of the world will just fall away in the thrill of reeling those bad boys in.

Aruba angling escapade is an exotic and unique experience, so why not give it a go and test your lines in beautiful blue waters of the Caribbean Sea?

Everything starts with your boat — a 34’ Pro Line outfitted with twin 300 HP Yanmar engines, to get you to the most bountiful fishing grounds quickly. With Capt. Reginald, his modern and reliable boat, and a friendly professional crew, you’re set to have a fishing trip to remember.

You can choose from a wide range of trips and book one that fits you best. Half day stints will keep you on the trail of Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, and many more, so use those 4 hours on the water wisely.

When it comes to 6-hour trips, which happen to be the most popular, you will be casting your lines 8-14 miles offshore to hook massive Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, as well as Sailfish, always a prestigious catch.

Feel like you’re ready to test your strength and mastery by going after billfish? Book the 8-hour Marlin trip and spend a day chasing after White and Blue Marlin, and Sailfish could easily be in the cards too. The catch on every trip is usually split between the crew and anglers.

You can also snorkel on these trips if you feel like you need to cool off after battling your awesome catch. Capt. Reginald has the equipment on board, and you don’t need previous experience to do it.

Rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures are all included in the price of the trip, as well as soft drinks like water and sodas. You can bring your snacks and lunch, though sandwiches and chips are provided on longer trips.

Bring your kids, family, and friends to your Aruba fishing extravaganza with Hardly Workin and find out just how enthralling fishing can be!

About the Captain

Reginald Geerman
Oranjestad, Aruba
Member since June 2018
Captain Reginald has always had a special bond with the sea, and when he started fishing as a 12-year-old, he just knew he wanted to do it for the rest of his life. He's always been a natural when it comes to fishing, so becoming a captain and guide came easily to him. He is doing what he loves and gets the chance to share his knowledge and stories with his customers. Reginald has been a captain for the past 8 years, and he's also an avid tournament participant. His biggest catch thus far weighed a whopping 700 pounds.
