Sunrise Charters is operated by Captain Marcelino De Jesus, the owner and his crew, 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 “Caroline,” a very comfortable 31’ boat whose hull will tackle Aruba’s choppy waters with reliability and dedication. 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!

Member since September 2016
Fishing is what I love to do. I've been doing it since 1989 with a lot of love, passion, and a lot of patience. Since I was 12 years old, I have been fishing. It was my great-grandfather who taught me everything about fishing and I am very grateful for it. Thanks to that I am a 4th generation master fisherman. I also enjoy participating in fishing tournaments and I have been placed 1st place once, 2nd place two times, and 3rd place one time. I’ll always keep participating in future tournaments. Waking up every day and doing what I love is a blessing. Atte: Captain and Owner Marcelino
