Operating out of Willemstad, Curacao, La Menta Boattrips offers professionally guided fishing trips. If you’d like to have the best experience exploring these deep waters, Captain Arnold Aarden and his crew will do everything to make that happen. Capt. Arnold is a passionate fisherman who’s been in the business for over 14 years. They are so confident about their skills that they give a fish guarantee – no fish will get you a 15% discount.
You’ll be fishing from a 36’ Pro Marine walkaround boat that can accommodate up to 6 anglers. The boat comes with air-conditioning, a restroom, a freshwater shower, a kitchen, and a tuna tower. But it’s not all just about comfort. This fishing machine is powered by twin 440 HP Yanmar Diesel engines and features outriggers, downriggers, a fighting chair, a live bait tank, and ice-boxes.
The captain will show you his favorite spots where you’ll get to target Sailfish, Marlin, Mahi, Barracuda, Wahoo, and an incredible variety of Tuna (Skipjack, Yellowfin, Albacore, and Blackfin). The best part is that there is no need to go more than 100 yards from the shore as the water gets deep pretty quickly. Also, if you’d like to extend your trip for half an hour, the captain will gladly stay a bit longer.
You’ll be supplied with top-tier Penn fishing gear, lures, and licenses. Depending on the season, you’ll get to catch your own live bait on the way – this is usually possible during winter and summer months.
The breakfast is provided on half days, while full day trips include lunch sandwiches. Snorkeling is also an option on full day trips, and the gear is provided, but kids are usually not recommended on longer trips.
The boat normally keeps the catch, but you’ll get a portion for a nice dinner, and the crew will clean and fillet it for you. The captain can even recommend a great restaurant where you can have your catch prepared for a few bucks.
Just bring good mood and La Menta Boattrips will take care of the rest!
