It features outriggers, a flybridge and a fighting chair which is a must-have if you are after the big catch such as Blue Marlin and Sailfish. The boat also has a toilet, a GPS and a Furuno fishfinder to help locate the best fishing spots.

The Hatts Off Fishing Charters crew knows what’s biting in the beautifully clear waters of Aruba and they use top of the line rods, reels, tackle and live bait in order to catch it. The species most commonly caught are Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin and Albacore Tunas, Wahoo, King Mackerel, Amberjack and Barracudas. The crew are happy to clean and fillet your catch and advise on the best restaurants in the area that will cook it for your lunch or dinner.

They also speak fluent English, Spanish, Dutch and the local language Papiamento.

We had a remarkably great day fishing with Hatts Off. Rusty, Sherwin & Alex provided a truly memorable outing for my son & me. We caught wahoo, amberjack and bonito in plenty. The action never stopped! The friendly & knowledgeable staff, especially Sherwin whose energy was boundless, made for a fun time. I’d recommend Hatts Off to anyone.
