96 J.E. Irausquin Boulevard
Noord, Aruba

Sunrise Charters is operated by a fourth generation fisherman who is looking forward to showing you the very best of what Aruba’s famous fishing grounds have to offer.

Join the extremely friendly crew for a unique fishing experience, where you could hope to catch species such as Barracuda, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Groupers, Snappers, and many more. You will be fishing with people who are not only extremely good at what they do, but who also love sharing their passion for fishing with people who come aboard the boat.

You will be fishing aboard ‘Persistence’, a very comfortable boat whose Downeast deadrise hull will tackle Aruba’s choppy waters with the reliability and dedication its name suggests. Not only will it provide a stable ride, it also has ample shade cover and seating, as well as an enclosed toilet, so your whole family can be comfortable throughout the trip.

About the Captain

Marcelino De Jesus

A fisherman is a person with a passion, love and a lot of patience, I've been doing it since 1989 and it was my great grandfather who told me a lot about fishing when I was only 12 years old. I am a 4th generation master fisherman. I enjoy fishing in tournaments and I have been placed 1st and 2nd in several all-tackle tournaments.

We had a great time! The water was rough and the fishing was slow but the boat handled the seas well and Capt Marcelino and his mate Perry worked hard to make our trip a success.
The captain cleaned our fish and directed us to a restaurant that prepared our fish for dinner.

We were picked up by the captain, Marcelino, at 6:45 on the dot just as we were told. Then we got on the boat and away we went. About an hour in my wife caught her first fish ever. A tuna. 30 minutes or so later we caught on two at once, a Mahi Mahi and a Wahoo! talk about an experience! We also caught two barracuda. It was only the captain with us but that’s all we needed, he is very effective and true to the boat’s name in making sure we left happy and more importantly with a catch. He also checked in on us to make sure we were feeling fine as far as the waves. After the trip he prepared the fish for us and allowed us to take the tuna and some mahi mahi to a nearby restaurant to cook for us. AMAZING! so good. Marcelino was very friendly and knowledgeable and my wife an I both felt he was going above and beyond to take care of us. He did offer drinks on our trip as well. Definitely going to have to book again when we come back!
