FAQs about Fishing Charters in Oranjestad

According to customer reviews, Dorothy Fishing Charters, Tropic Charters, and Jeliray Charter & Tours are some of the most popular fishing charters in Oranjestad. Full list of top fishing charters in Oranjestad.

Dorothy Fishing Charters, Tropic Charters, and Jeliray Charter & Tours all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Oranjestad.

The most popular fish species you can target are Great Barracuda, Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), and Wahoo. Top fishing techniques include deep sea fishing, trolling, and heavy tackle. Offshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and reef fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

When it comes to sportfishing in the Caribbean, it’s hard to trump what Oranjestad fishing charters have to offer. This island paradise boasts pristine beaches, beautiful weather, and deep blue waters that host a number of coveted fish. From offshore pelagic species to colorful inshore creatures and everything in between, Aruba’s capital is the place to be for a dream catch.

Oranjestad’s coastline is defined by ledges and steep drop-offs. Within a few miles from shore, you’ll find trophy Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, and Mahi Mahi. After some tasty table fare? Cubera, Yellowtail, and Blackfin Snapper, as well as Grouper varieties top the list.

If you’d prefer to stay closer to shore, that’s an option too! Flats fishing in Oranjestad is excellent and fly fishing enthusiasts will enjoy facing off against Tarpon, Snook, and Bonefish. You can also cast for Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, and Barracuda.

Since you won’t have to travel far to reach productive grounds, even a half day trip could put you on trophy deep sea fish. If you have time to spare, though, don’t skip out on a full day adventure. Not only will you up your chances of landing a dream target, but you’ll also get to enjoy the beautiful weather and warm waters.

You’ll find a large selection of Oranjestad fishing charters at Renaissance Marina. If you’d like to set out immediately after landing, Varadero Aruba Marina and Boatyard is right by the airport.

Rules & Regulations

If you are a tourist fishing in Aruba, no fishing license is required. Please keep in mind that spearfishing is prohibited on the island and that all Billfish are catch and release only.

January

The weather is pleasant and so is the fishing. Blue and White Marlin are terrific on the northern or eastern sides of the island. Speedy Wahoo are also ready to be reeled in.

February

The wind is at its strongest, which brings the windsurfers out. Enjoy the mild weather and troll for Wahoo while the bite is still hot. Further offshore, hunt for Blue and White Marlin. 

March

The start of spring brings on the fly fishing season! Head out to the flats in search of juvenile Tarpon and Bonefish. Fishing for Blue and White Marlin offshore is red hot. 

April

It's low season, making it a great time to visit if you want to avoid the crowds. Wahoo and Red Snapper fishing is almost as fantastic as chasing White and Blue Marlin is. This is also the time to hook Tarpon on the fly. 

May

As the temperatures heat up, the Tarpon become incredibly active and acrobatic. Now is the time to break some personal records! 

June

It's hot out there and will be for the next few months. There's no better way to cool off than by heading out on the water! Target Tarpon inshore and Mahi Mahi and Tuna in bluewaters. 

July

The hot July weather is great news for holidaymakers. Make the most of the bite by targeting Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Kingfish offshore. If you want to take advantage of Tarpon season, head to the flats. 

August

Make Kingfish and Mahi Mahi your main priority and you'll see the icebox fill up in no time! It's hot out there so try to get an early start.

September

As summer makes way for fall, Sailfish move into the waters surrounding the island. Hop aboard an offshore fishing charter and dedicate your time to hooking this majestic Billfish! 

October

Seasonal rain won't stop you from having a good time! The Presidential Aruba Caribbean Cup takes palce and coincides perfectly with Marlin season. This is also your last chance to hook Bonefish or Tarpon.

November

Mid-fall brings rains to this Caribbean paradise. But it’s a matter of minutes before the sun comes out! This is a great time to go Sailfishing, but Blue Marlin steal the show.

December

Rainy December weather takes over and it’s time to troll for Wahoo, Blue Marlin, and Sailfish. Add Red Snapper and Barracuda to your list for delicious tablefare.

Pack a few snacks and tell the Capt. What you want to do. I personally hate offshore trolling so we stayed inshore and picked away at bottom fish.

Taking some bonine prior to the trip is not a bad idea. The waves get pretty high in some of the fishing grounds on the windward side of the island and around the point.

Our particular fishing day was a little slow. The ocean was a bit rough due to the constant wind. We heard there were 5 charter boats out that day. There were only our two catches, and one other from another boat. Not sure if that's the norm this time of year.

Go fishing, it is worth it. I don't recommend it for all children, but I went with my 8 year old son and we loved it. If my son would want to do this again I would do it again for and with him.

My wife and I had an awesome time. The captain and his deck hand worked super hard throughout the entire trip. We caught 9 fish and afterwards they sent part of the catch to the Driftwood restaurant and later that evening we enjoyed the catch prepared 4 different ways. Great meal and at a fair price. I would highly recommend this Boat and crew for your fishing adventure!

Ken and first mate Dennis gave it their best, it’s just that the fish weren’t biting except for two small bonitos. Picked up some tips though and enjoyed conversation with Dennis, a professional sport fisherman.

Great time today (August 24th, 2022) with Kenny & Dennis and definitely look forward to fishing with them again on our next trip to Aruba. They are very professional, experienced, personable and just great to talk to in between bites. We headed back to the dock with come fresh Mahi to cook tonight and my family and I are excited to catch and cook! You won’t be disappointed trust me. Thank you both for a great day on the water.

Despite not filling the boat with fish we caught 4 nice Mahi, good eating size. We caught fish throughout trip, not all at once. Kyle kept changing bait to insure we got hits, which we had several we did not land. I would recommend A charter with Capt. Milton on Teaser.

Without a doubt I will be booking with Roberto when we come back to Aruba. He got us on fish immediately and was prepared for our party which consisted of 3 kids. He did an excellent job explaining to the kids what to do and how to work the rod in the fighting chair. An absolute great experience!!!! He and his first mate were awesome. 100% recommend!!!

We had a nice afternoon on the water. Captain Kenneth worked hard trying to find us fish. Dennis was very personable and happy to show my son how all of the fishing equipment worked. My kids remarked that Dennis seemed just as excited as they were when we caught a fish. After we retuned to the dock we took our catch over to Lucy’s where they grilled it up for us. It made a tasty meal.
