Thaisa - 41 ft Phoenix

L.G. Smith Blvd
Oranjestad, Aruba

Experience the thrill of sport fishing in Aruba aboard Thaisa, a 41 ft Phoenix vessel that is perfectly suited to fishing the deep and bountiful waters of the island. With a very friendly and courteous crew on hand to help throughout the trip, Thaisa gives you the chance to go trolling, bottom fishing, cruising or snorkeling at your leisure while enjoying your vacation in Aruba.

Thaisa is equipped for an enjoyable trip both inside and out. The interior seats groups of up to eight people, while there are also bunk beds for relaxation and a kitchen with space for food preparation. On deck, the boat features a fighting chair for exhilarating sport fishing, as well as a covered flybridge for unrivalled views of the receding coastline and potential fishing spots. Rigged with gear by well known brands including Shimano and Fin-nor, this vessel will help you get the most out of your Aruba fishing trip.

Frequent catches aboard Thaisa include Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Barracuda, and King Mackerel, while it is also possible to catch a Billfish such as a Blue or White Marlin or Sailfish if the conditions on the day of your trip are suitable. The boat is also set up for getting good results when bottom fishing, which can be great fun for the kids, and if you would like to combine fishing with snorkeling just inform the crew and they will take you to the best spots to experience what it feels like to swim with the reef fish.
