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.

The day started off raining (rare in Aruba).  However the captain was very prompt and no delays were experienced.  Prior to setting sail the communication was good via the online booking.  Never had any concerns.  Once on the boat things started slow but picked up fast due to a very experienced crew that had old school fishing experience.  True craftsmen of the art of fishing.  New all the tricks to provide us with the utmost action-packed experience.  The crew was friendly and courteous.  My son got sea sick towards the end and the crew even jumped in to lend a few tips on how to minimize his discomfort.  Boat is a little tired but a more than capable vessel.  For the price you can’t go wrong.  There are bigger and newer boats out there but that doesn’t catch you fish.  Only experience and knowledge.  We caught a total of (8) fish.  Half mahi and half Bonita.  We had a chance at probably 8 more if it weren’t for accelerating our return due to my kiddo not feeling well.  I highly recommend.  Also FYI if you are looking to eat your catch the first mate hooked us up at sea salt restaurant where they prepared our best meal of the week!
