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.

Great crew. Helpful and I know it’s not their fault for not finding the fish. I didn’t even get a bite. Perhaps they shouldn’t stay at the same spot too long. Should offer discount or refund on bad days.

For ANY 1sr time deep sea fishers. Dont drink the night before, ront go to casibo night before and if you have a weak stomach dr ik nk coffee sparingly morning of and bring tums or pepto bismol. If you've done this before just expect s great time, especially on the Carla charter

This is a great boat for people to fish on because it doesn’t go far out into the sea. In 25 minutes, we were bottom fishing, which I prefer over trolling. I’d much rather reel in 10 smaller fish than one huge fish that I didn’t even set the hook myself... lots of fun for experienced fishermen or beginners!

I think it is hard to look online for a captain in boat. My wife and I walked through the marina and there seem to be several boats every day that we're not out fishing. It is easy to walk around and look at the boats and talk to people. I was worried about getting there and not being able to charter a boat.

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.

Go in October that is marlin season. July is more for a learning experience. But still a fun trip for the whole family!!

There are fish out there. We hooked (but lost) two Mahi. We brought in several tuna of different sizes. Not huge, but it was delicious tuna.

If you want to fish the South Side for wahoo, baracuda, and tuna. Northside for game fish. When I stay for 1 month we fish 2nd day of trip and catch 100+ lbs of filets for the rest of the month.

Book a larger boat to ha e a smoother ride in the wind and waves, i.e. at least 40-feet.

Temps are great, but the sea can get a little busy. Be prepared for rolling boat action.

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.

We were there during Hurricane Season to the north of Aruba, so I don't know how much that influenced it. We still got some fish. Very happy with our experience.

Do something better worth your money, we can’t get little for a very expensive boat. They Also say they provide snacks but dont.

A two-hour trip would have been plenty of time. I caught a fish in the first 30 minutes, but none after that.

Keep a positive attitude and enjoy your time regardless of the outcome, you can't catch them all everytime.

Depending on what side of the island you intend to fish, the waters are a bit rough (8-10ft swells) but on a decent sized boat, it isn't a big deal.
