Overall I would not book this in the future. My husband is an avid fisher and I surprised him with a trip. I paid a lot of money and expected a great trip. They trolled the ENTIRE time even though we weren’t catching anything. They were not open to trying any other techniques. The boat is old and could use serious update.  We did not catch a simgle fish!The captain and deck hand was friendly, however the lady who took our payment wasn’t. I do not recommend.

My experience on the thaisa was fantastic. Despite the fact that we caught nothing I still really enjoyed the trip. The fish just weren’t biting that day, captain Neil and Joel tried their hardest to put us on fish but we were unlucky and could not blame it on the boat or the crew. They had great enthusiasm and I still really enjoyed the trip. I will for sure chose the thaisa next time I come to Aruba.
