Dorothy Fishing Charters
One of our top picks in Oranjestad. Dorothy Fishing Charters is one of the most well-established fishing charters in Aruba. Captains Roberto and Tussy have many years of experience - they have been fishing together for years and love fishing and meeting new fishing buddies. Their many returning customers recommend their services as even on the worst catching days, Tussy and Roberto will put their all into making sure everyone on board is having a great time on the water.
“Dorothy” is a well-equipped BHM Downeast style boat that was restored fully in 2010. At 32 ft, she has plenty of space on board for up to six people to join in the action, and her comfortable interior and flybridge give extra space for relaxing. The boat features a range of amenities that make sport fishing in Aruba even more fun and productive, including three fighting chairs (two sailfish chairs and one marlin chair), outriggers, downriggers, and tuna tubes. Inside, you will find a toilet with a shower, as well as a kitchen with a refrigerator and a bedroom.
The crew specializes in offshore fishing, providing both trolling and bottom fishing adventures depending on their customers’ wishes. They will supply you with both light and heavy tackle, and will generally target fish such as White and Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Amberjack, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Snappers, and Groupers. With the captains also being passionate cooks, they will share the catch with you, clean it, and give you some tips for making the most out of your freshly caught bounty.
Don’t worry about taking your fishing gear to Aruba with you - all the fishing equipment you will need is included in the price. The crew will even provide sodas on all trips, as well as sandwiches on six hour trips and lunch on full day excursions.

The captain took us in extremely rough waters, his mate was even arguing with him about our destination. Not only did we not catch fish we both ended up sea sick even with taking Dramamine as a precaution. What a waste of $350.

We had a slow trip with 3 fish landed and only 2 other hits but still had a great time. The crew was great and very easy to communicate with. They did everything they could to get us more fish.

We never even got to touch a pole. Apparently there are more and more no fish days happening, The Captain told us 2 years ago there were 5 no fish days, and now, too many to count. The Captain also smoked on the boat which we found very unprofessional. Waste of our day and money!
