Tequila Charters Aruba is the finest charter on the island that provides great fishing. An experienced captain and mate who fished tournaments and have worked in commercial fishing bring you right on the fish. They love what they do and want to share their skills with you.

If you seek to enrich your vacation with unforgettable fishing trips with family and friends, come along!

You’ll climb onboard one of the cleanest vessels on the isle. This top-notch 32’ Blackfin convertible is named Te-Keel-La, and is powered by two 335 HP Yanmar Diesel engines. It can accommodate up to 10 people, but in order for everyone to have plenty of space when angling, the captain takes up to six people on fishing trips. If you’re looking for a different kind of fun, then the company of 10 is more than welcome to join - there’ some great snorkeling fun.

Te-Keel-La is equipped with all safety equipment, modern electronics, high-quality baits, lures, jigs, rods, reels and tackle. She also comes with a flybridge - great when taking on big game! She’s a stable boat that gives you a comfortable and smooth ride on the waters that surround Aruba.

Fishing takes place year round here, and depending on the species you target, you may head some 6 to 8 miles out. In case of children onboard, the captain and crew will make sure to adjust the trip so that everyone can enjoy. On shorter trips, there will be drinks, and you can grab your snacks, while on a full day ride, you’ll be served sandwiches as well.

Love for fishing drives the crew of Tequila Charters Aruba to give their best so that anglers of all levels of expertise can have a memorable day out on the water. Just book your trip and let the seasoned crew take care of the rest! Gratuities are welcome.

I started fishing when I was six. My grandfather was a great fisherman. He took me fishing for years, from shallow to deep waters for Groupers and Snappers. We used handlines and dropped it at 130 fathoms. My uncle had charter boats and I would go up and down on the dock, hookup a fish and jump from one boat to another to catch the fish. He took me fishing also and taught me more about rod and reel fishing and the different techniques of rigging baits. During the years, I met a Dutch guy who was my neighbor and he heard that I fished. He was also a great fisherman. I fished 9 years commercially with him and captained his boat for a couple of years more. We caught lots of Wahoos - one day we caught 76 Wahoos!. Yellowedge Grouper, Red Snapper, Yelloweye Snapper, Queen Snapper, Warsaw Groupers, Snowys, Vermilion Snappers, Amberjacks (Reef Donkeys). I fished with lots of old guys who always invited me to fish with them. My dream was always to have my own charter boat and I made it.
