Thaisa II - 36 ft Bertram

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 and you will be able to experience the thrill of fishing in Aruba with an enthusiastic and courteous crew that will do everything they can to put you on the fish.

Thaisa II is a 36 ft Bertram flybridge boat. This classic sport fisher retains its original features that gave Bertram its respected name in the sport fishing world, while keeping up to date with safety appliances that are thoroughly surveyed every six 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, three 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 sport fishing trip you will never forget.
