Thaisa II – 36'

The small island of Aruba could be called a fisherman’s paradise. Surrounded by deep waters thanks to a steep drop off close to the island’s shores, you can find a variety of game fish just minutes away from the harbor. Take a trip aboard Thaisa II to experience the thrill of fishing in Aruba with an enthusiastic crew that will do everything to put you on the fish.

Thaisa II is a 36’ Bertram flybridge boat. This boat retains its original features that gave Bertram its respected name in the sportfishing world, while keeping up to date with safety appliances surveyed every 6 months to ensure the safety of everyone on board.

Powered by twin Cummins engines, the boat will take you to the best fishing spots quickly and dependably, while also being a comfortable vessel to fish off. With a television in the living area, 3 beds for relaxing and a galley with a sink, the boat also features a large deck with three fighting chairs so everyone can be part of the action.

Whether you want to troll for game fish, bottom fish, or simply go snorkeling around the island, the crew aboard Thaisa will work hard to make sure your trip is one to remember. With deep water only a few minute’s boat ride from the harbor, you could be in with a chance of catching fish right from the start of your trip.

With potential catches including Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, and King Mackerel, this is a recipe for a sportfishing trip you will never forget.

Hop aboard Thaisa II and experience the amazing sportfishing the island of Aruba has to offer!
