Deep Sea Fishing in Aruba

Are you looking to fish in paradise? Few places come as close as Aruba. This tropical island is surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean that drop to hundreds of feet just seconds from shore. Thankfully, there are plenty of Aruba deep sea fishing charters to get you offshore and on the fish.
 
And the fish are seriously impressive. We’re talking some of the most sought-after big game fish in the world. Barracuda, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi are available year-round, and there’s also Tuna, with Blackfin, Albacore, and Yellowfin varieties showing up. But that’s not all. Sailfish and Blue and White Marlin are the real stars of the show, with Swordfish and deepwater Groupers available the further out you go.
 
With the waters dropping so deep so quickly, you’ll have a variety of deep sea fishing trips to choose from in Aruba. If you’ve just got a few hours to spare, don’t worry. A half day trip will be plenty to land at least one of the prized creatures on offer. Fancy a bit longer? Choose anywhere from a 3/4 day trip to a full day or more on the water and go for a “Billfish Grand Slam.”
 
Aruba measures just 70 square miles, meaning you’re never far from a marina to take you out. The capital, Oranjestad, boasts the biggest number of charters, while Noord further up the coast and San Nicolas in the south also have their fair share.

What anglers said about Deep Sea Fishing in Aruba

Great trip! It was less wavy than expected with windy conditions and we stayed within sight of the shore. We did take gravol/wrist bands to mitigate sea sickness and would definitely go for another fishing excursion!

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.

Call the company first to find what is better at the time. AM or PM fishing. Certain times are better for a specific fish depending if you are looking to catch.

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.

Suntan lotion, a hat, and be prepared for potentially rough water (Choppy and rollers - it's the wind, right)

I am a novice. But, worked sailboats. We trolled. Did not do bottom fishing. I like the ease and quickness of trolling. It is windy and a bit rough in April. If you do not have sea legs, take anti nausea medications and do not drink night before heading out.

Sometimes target fish aren’t running when you’re here . Try to plan your trip when your target fish are known to be active in aruba. Search for charters before your trip and ask questions.

Be ready for 4' to 6' swells. There is always a 20-30 mph breeze off shore.

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!

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.

They say this is a slow time of the year for fishing, but if this is slow I can't imagine peak season. 8 Fish in four hours is a good time anywhere.

Get a prescription Scopolomine motion sickness path and you will be prepared for high adventure fishing in the normally rough seas of offshore Aruba

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.
