Kepasa -  42’ Hatteras

(22) In demand!
Seaport Village Marine
Oranjestad, Aruba

Kepasa is a 42’ Hatteras with a maximum passenger capacity of 8 anglers, certified by ‘Scheepvaart Inspectie’.

Whether its your first time fishing or you’re a veteran deep sea angler, Mahi Mahi Charters are equally resolute to showing you a great time aboard Kepasa, and taking you on a memorable fishing adventure on the productive offshore grounds of Aruba.

Seaport Marina is where Kepasa departs from, with the dock sitting just a few minutes away from the drop off, which means the bite is sometimes on in as little as 10 minutes. Kepasa is also close to the cruise ship terminal, allowing the team to take care of the logistics for anglers coming to Aruba via cruise ship.

Many of Kepasa’s clients inquire about eating the fish they caught in a classy nearby restaurant. If you feel the same way, the team recommends taking your catch to a local restaurant like Que Pasa after your trip and have a personal meal prepared, unlike any other. The crew will also provide your group with sandwiches on all 8-hour trips.

Captains Peter, Rudolf and Roy of Mahi Mahi Charters have been fishing the productive waters of Aruba for many years, and have fought countless big game fish in their careers. Common targets include Billfish (both Sailfish and Marlin), as well as Mahi Mahi and Dorado, Mackerel and Bonito, Amberjack, Tuna and many others, relative to the time of year.

The daily catch is usually divided between the clients and crew members. Although the crew is flexible when it comes to the ratios, between 10 and 30% of the fish caught is generally kept by the guests, while the rest is split between the deckhands.

While the boat seemed older and not as glossy as the others Mike and his crew brought in the fish! Always better to have a boat that catches fish over a pretty boat. Great crew great morning.

The kepassa was the worst fishing trip I have ever done.  I went with my gf, the outside of the boat said..“pay the rest with visa/mastercard” went in boat and captain sais he needs cash and does not have the machine.  We were literally not allowed to touch any of the fishing poles, and when a fish was hooked we were ordered too sit in the chair and only caught a few small Bonita they at the end the first mate took for himself.  I feel like I was ripped off and was and very disappointed, I wasted my money and would not recommend fishing booker too anyone.

captain and crew were very knowledgeable of everything,  from taking control of the boat and making it as smooth as possible due to high waves to putting out enough fishing lines to catch plenty of Mahi Mahi
