Sunrise Charters is operated by Captain Marcelino De Jesus, a fourth-generation Aruban fisherman. He is always looking forward to showing his guests the very best of what Aruba’s famous fishing grounds have to offer.

You will be fishing aboard “Persistence,” a very comfortable 33’ 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, but it also has ample shade cover and seating, as well as an enclosed toilet. These things help to make it so your whole family can be comfortable throughout the trip.

Join the extremely friendly crew for a unique fishing experience, where you can expect to target species such as Barracuda, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Grouper, Snapper, and many others. 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.

The boat has everything you need for a fun day of fishing, including rods, reels, and terminal tackle. Not only that, but you’ll have complimentary soft drinks and snacks on longer trips, and the crew will clean and fillet your catch after the trip. The only thing missing here is you!

So if you already have a date in mind, book a package to your liking and enjoy your next fishing adventure with Sunrise Charters!

A fisherman is a person with 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 have been placed 1st and 2nd in several all-tackle tournaments.
