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. 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.

Capt Mike, Tom and Omar were excellent. We had a triple header at one point and we landed all three. Tom filleted the fish back at the dock and we had a great meal that night. I would highly reccomend their services. Brian C from Floral Park NY
