Kristel Fishing Aruba - 44’ Striker
One of our top picks in Noord. Kristel Fishing Aruba is run by one of the most caring and passionate fishermen around who values his crew and guests, and treats them like family. Captain Mike has been fishing since he was 4 years old, and has been a charter operator for over 30 years, which he enjoys immensely as it allows him to be on the water and meet new guests every day. His crew are professional fishermen and first mates who love fishing and helping guest reel in fish. They will celebrate the excitement of your catch with you and make you feel like a part of the family.
You will fish aboard Captain Mike’s 44 foot Striker motor yacht, which was originally built in 1973 and restored in 2013. The boat is powered by two 450 HP Cummings engines with a maximum cruising speed of 26 knots, and a capacity for 15 guests. This beautiful boat is equipped with all the amenities you might need on a fishing trip such as a bathroom, a bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen with a fridge, a TV, a multimedia system and is air conditioned throughout which is a great deal in the warm Aruban sun. You will also find all the safety necessities such as life vests, a liferaft, flares and fire extinguishers. Also, the boat has a spectacular flybridge which can be used for Tuna and game fish watching.
Kristel Fishing Aruba will take you on an offshore fishing adventure where you will be targeting the most desirable fish species such as White and Blue Marlin, Barracuda, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Wahoo, Yellowfin and Albacore Tunas, and the Great White Shark. The crew will assist you and provide the fishing equipment in terms of rods, reels, tackle, lures, a fishing license, outriggers, downriggers and fighting chair. At the end of your trip they can even clean and fillet your catch. You will have snacks and drinks on the half day trip, and a sandwich too on the full day trip. Please advise the captain if you are bringing your children along so he can advise you better on the stuff you’ll need on the trip.

The trip was awesome!!! We caught what we wanted to catch, had it cooked up at the restaurant right by the water. Mike and Leo were the bomb!! I was a little dehydrated from the night before and Leo took care of that for me. All in all an awesome trip and will definitely book again next time I’m here. Made some great memories with my brother in law.

My husband and I booked the Kristel based on the reviews we saw and could not be happier we did! Captain Mike and first mate Leo were great! The both were super friendly and tried their best to get the most fish we could. We started off to the North side of the island to look for Wahoo however turned up none but got two barracudas. No worries it’s call fishing not catching right! So then Mike took us to the south side of the island and we brought in 5 Mahi and two small tuna. And I have to say the seas were rough but Mike really knew how to navigate those seas and it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. And hats off to Leo for being encouraging to me to get in the two big Mahi’s! Part of me didn’t think I could do it but he gave me tips and got those puppies in! What a perfect honeymoon fishing trip for us!!
