Regardless of if you’re a veteran offshore angler or are organizing you first big game trip, Mahi Mahi Charters are committed to providing you with an enjoyable and memorable boating and fishing adventure in Aruba.

The boat departs from the Seaport Marina. Sea-iesta’s dock is so close to the drop-off, the crew can start putting out lures in only a few minutes time. For anglers arriving via cruise ship, do note that the vessel is docked near the cruise ship terminal.

Mahi Mahi Charters are operated by experienced and knowledgeable captains - Peter, Rudolf and Roy are all deep sea veterans, with years of experience and expertise when it comes to fishing the big game pelagics of Aruba. Among others, these waters are abundant with Sailfish and Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Bonito, King Mackerel, Jacks and many others, depending on the time of year.

If you’d like to cook and eat your daily catch, Seaiesta recommends taking it to one of the nearby restaurants like ‘Que Pasa’, where the chef will be more than happy to prepare your catch for you. On Full Day trips, sandwiches are also provided on board.

Generally speaking, the catch is divided by the crew and guests. Although the ratio is flexible, the usual agreement is that 10-30% of the daily catch is kept by the charterer, and the balance is divided between the crew.

Little rocky off of Aruba but we caught some fish and the boys enjoyed the catch (in between getting a little sick overboard). The first mate was a lot of fun and made it very enjoyable. I’d schedule again!!

We called 24 hours ahead because sea was so rough! They said it was fine! All 7 of us were sick in the first hour! We were out 4 hours out of the 8 that we booked!
After calling the day before questioning the situation they never offered us any type of reimbursement!
The first mate David was awesome, we don’t blame him. The captain wasn’t helpful from the first phone call! Think twice about booking with Peter!!!

dear richard, thank you for your comments with regards too the weather ii is windy in aruba the seas were not rougher than normal this time of the year. my other two boats and many other charter boats had no problem with the seas.for us this is the busy time of the year and thus if we lose trips because people get sick then we lose too.before we left i introduced the boat to everyone and explained that if you feel a bit strange then donot stay in the airconditioned room because you will feel worse i understand that most ladies stayed inside and therefore got sick as well also you came on board with two cases of beer and you left with one so that i may assume that you consumed one case we had 3 to 4 persons on the bridge who did not drink i did not see it then 4 persons had and average of 5 beers that does not help either. it is a pity that it went like it went
regards peter
