Mahi Mahi Fishing Charters – 42'

Come on an adventure with Mahi Mahi Fishing Charters and explore the beautiful waters off the coast of Aruba! Captains Peter, Rudolf, and Roy have been fishing these productive waters for many years, and have fought countless big game fish in their careers. They’ll take you to all the honey holes, and make sure your trip is successful.

Enjoy your day on Kepasa – a 42’ Hatteras cruiser that will provide a comfortable ride to the fishing grounds. Up to 8 people can come aboard without sacrificing any comfort, and there’s a toilet on board for your convenience. Whether it’s your first time fishing or you’re a veteran deep sea angler, the crew is equally resolute to showing you a great time.

Kepasa departs from Seaport Marina, with the dock just a few minutes away from the drop off, which means the bite is sometimes on 10 minutes away. Common targets include Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Mackerel, Bonito, Amberjack, Barracuda, Tuna, and Jack Crevalle.

Your captain will provide all the necessary fishing equipment, so you’ll get straight to fishing. If you’re interested in tasting the freshly caught fish, 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.

Between 10 and 30% of the fish caught is generally kept by the guests, while the rest is split among the crew. You’ll have drinks on board, and on full days a sandwich for lunch, but feel free to bring your own. Make sure to bring some sunscreen as well so you can fully relax.

All that’s missing here is you, so visit Aruba and explore the surrounding deep waters with Mahi Mahi Fishing Charters!
