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.

Hurricane Matthew was still was causing problems. We should have canceled the trip. The ocean was extremely rough and the after-effects of the hurricane made the trip a complete waste of 4 hours. We caught 1 small Dolphin Fish (Mahi). Hardly worth getting tossed around for 4 hours. Although I appreciated the efforts of the Captain and First Mate, I wonder whether they should have had the good sense to cancel the trip. Perhaps the loss in revenue from previous canceled charters influenced their decision to push forward with a doomed trip. I suspected that much when I noticed every other charter boat stayed in the marina.

This was a great experience start to finish! Professional, prepared and knowledgeable. We have had the opportunity to fish great locations from the keys on down to Aruba and rate the Hatts Off operation as top shelf. Thank you and we will be back!
