The North side of the island has large swells, so if you get motion sickness, you will definitely want patches or medication. We did see land the entire time during our trip, so that did help keep your eye on the horizon.

Aruba is a windy county, so there are big waves due to wind. Deep sea fishing is awesome but not for woozy people. If you get sea sick or are not an ocean person this is not for you. Leave the ones who aren’t into fishing in land & you will have a great time.

You won't be disappointed with, Keeping it Reel! Captain Alexandro supplies all of your needs. My daughter only had to set and reel while they let me bait, cast, and retrieve. He put us on the fish first try and we caught fish until we were worn out! There's nothing that could have made our charter any better, nothing.

We had 5 or 6 hook-ups during the 31/2 hours of trolling and we got 2 fish to the boat. One was a decent Wahoo which I told the Captain was my target species. The water was a little rough where the Wahoo were so if you are prone to sea sickness, probably not a good trip for you. One of the bottom fishing trips might be better.

We hit rough seas which cut our outing short. Everything we landed was before we hit the rough stuff. Our biggest catch was a 30 lb king mackerel which we got on a hand line...that was interesting but would have prefered more action with less waves.

Bring your own refreshments, don't count on what they provide. Also, waters can be rough so be prepared for that. Was no issue for me, but my guest were a bit nervous.

We go fishing every time we come and this was not indicative of the great crews we have had. This was a boat and crew that should not be serving the public.

Drink a few beers first thing in the morning. Seas are rough for the average, non sea-going folks, like ourselves.

We really liked the sunset tour. Wasn't too hot, but prepare for it to be windy. Because it was and always is windy on the water according to our guides.

Be prepared for choppy waters. This is real deep sea fishing, with 15-20 foot swells on normal weather days.

I would recommend lifting weights for a few months before your trip so you can catch more fish.

No complaints it was all good. I would be careful with children under 12 because the waters can be rough.

We caught some great eating fish and the chef is preparing them for us now. Catch, captain cleans them and eat them the same day.

Depends what you’re going for. Deep sea fishing is always hit and miss but bottom fishing is great.

Reserve with Sunrise Charters! Don't forget any medicine i.e. Dramamine or inhalers... be ready to catch fish!

Beautiful weather. Easy trip out a mile or two into the ocean to catch some ocean floor fish. Even in the sunny afternoon we were able to catch some Coney Grouper and Triggerfish.

Heavy sunscreen and protective clothing; the sun is no joke!! And the biggest recommendation is don’t drink the night before.

Like anywhere else - fishing is hit or miss. We were deep sea fishing so its even more hit or miss. We did catch two very nice Wahoo one 3 feet and one 4 feet beautiful fish. Nice fight.

The water was rough so if you’re easily sea sick I would not go. But we had a great time and caught some good fish!

The afternoon 4 hour trip if a better bet if you can't get your traveling children out of bed early. Lots of age appropriate night life in Aruba so they tend to be up later as the fun never stops.

If you tend towards sea sickness, do not go...full stop. It’s choppy out there and Dramamine is not going to fix you. There is no flat water out there where the fish are.

Make sure to bring snacks on board with you, maybe some hand sanitizer and lots of sunscreen. I would even suggest for the ladies to bring some wet wipes, just in case they run out of toilet paper =)

Make sure that the sea's are not really rough, and you get to keep all of your catch.
