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.
