Non stop action on this early morning trip. This seasoned captain knows every trick in the book and uses fishing styles unlike any of his competitors. He docks at Palm Beach which was much more convenient for me than the downtown fishing docks. Heartwarming to see his patience with a young inexperienced mate. This is a “shared catch” booking, however, we had many more fish compared to the other charters. 2 Wahoo, 2 Barracuda, 4 Bluefin Tuna, and a Blue Runner.

I had a great experience with this company. They were amiable, professional and took the time to explain pretty much everything that was going on. We caught a small barracuda and a really nice wahoo. The real show happened when we got back to the dock and several people wanted to buy the wahoo we had caught. It was such a good show that (not having anything better to do) I wandered by the next afternoon to watch it repeat itself.

Super trip with Capt Marcelino de Jesus and the Persistence. We were cruise passengers so we only had a short time to fish. Capt Marcelino picked us up at the fuel dock (about 10 min walk from the ship) at 11:30 and we had four lines and two teasers in the water by 11:55. The fishing was initially poor because of the weather, so the Captain switched up areas, coordinating with other Captains to determine where the fish might be. About 1.5 hours before heading in, the weather cleared and we got some hits, 3 X small barracuda and a huge wahoo… 

Capt Marcelino certainly lived up to his boats name, persistence really did pay-off. Moreover, the captain was both professional and personable, telling us about his home in Aruba while providing a bit of training for when I hopefully have my own boat.  He certainly made it look easy.

Fully recommend this Capt Marcelino and the Persistence. You won’t be disappointed.

Had an awesome morning with captain Marcelino! Fishing started out slow and the waters were rough but we were able to land a yellowfin tuna and hook a black tip shark and wahoo! Had a blast! Very friendly and knowledgeable! Should I ever make it back to Aruba, captain Marcelino will be called again!

What a trip, even though we had rough seas, we caught one BIG Wahoo. This was my son’s first deep sea fishing trip and a added bonus was the Wahoo. The Captain was great with my son.
We were very pleased and will return again and use you booking

Captain worked hard to find fish.  We caught two nice tuna 15 minutes into the trip but it was just a boat ride from that point on.  Just one of those days.  Captain very knowledgeable, knows his trade.  Would Recommend.

Great experience. Just went fishing not catching. Thank you to the capt did a great job
