Oranjestad, Aruba - Show map
(5)

‘Mahi Mahi’ is a 42 Hatteras Sportfisherman, able to accommodate up to 8 people. The vessel has been approved by Scheepvart Inspectie.

Mahi Mahi Charters cater to all anglers, no matter what your prior experience or skill level is when it comes to deep sea fishing. This may be your first time planning a big game excursion or you may be a pro fisherman - either way, the crew is committed to providing you with an enjoyable experience you won’t soon forget.

Mahi’s dock at the Seaport Marina is located a few minutes from the drop-off, meaning you’ll often be fishing in about 10 minutes time. The boat is also situated in close proximity to the cruise ship terminal, and is therefore able to effectively cater to all fishermen arriving by cruise ships.

Mahi’s Captains - Peter, Rudolf and Roy are all deep sea veterans, with a vast experience and knowledge when it comes to fishing the big game pelagics of Aruba. Among others, these waters are prolific with Sailfish and Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Bonito, Wahoo, Kingfish, Jacks and many others.

If you’d like to have your catch prepared to eat, the local restaurant Que Pasa is a great place where your catch can be cooked for you to enjoy. The crew usually splits the day’s catch between the deckhands and the clients, where 10 to 30% will go to the guests, although that ratio can be flexible. Sandwiches will also be made available on full day trips.
