Have an amazing fishing adventure in the deep blue waters of Aruba with Mahi Mahi Fishing Charters! You’ll join experienced and knowledgeable captains – Peter, Rudolf, and Roy. With years of experience and expertise when it comes to fishing the big game pelagics of Aruba, they’ll put you on the fish instantly.

Explore these waters in style on Sea-iesta – a 54’ Bertram offshore sportfishing boat. The boat is powered by twin Detroit 950 HP engines, so it can develop some serious speed cruising these deep waters. There’s room for 12 people on board, so bring all your friends and family!

The crew will provide you with everything you need, including rods, reels, tackle, and lures. No matter whether you’re a veteran angler or organizing your first big game trip, they are committed to providing you with an enjoyable and memorable fishing adventure in Aruba.

The drop-off is very close to the shore, so the crew can start putting out lures right upon leaving the dock. There’s always something to target in the area, since these waters are brimming with life. You can expect to run into Sailfish, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Bonito, King Mackerel, and Jack Crevalle.

The crew and the guests share the catch. Usually, the customer keeps 10-30% of the daily catch, and the balance is divided among the crew. If you’d like to cook and eat your daily catch, take it to one of the nearby restaurants, where the chef will be more than happy to prepare your catch for you.

There will be drinks provided, just make sure to bring some snacks to stay refreshed, as well as some sun protection. On full day trips, you’ll have sandwiches as well.

Join Mahi Mahi Fishing Charters, explore the waters of Aruba, and check out some of the most productive fishing spots around!
