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

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.

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.

It's a boat. Aruba has high winds so the water can be rocky. If you're unsure of getting sick I'd suggest taking seasick medicine ahead of time.

Captain said bottom fishing was a little more dependable the week we were there. Caught 10-12 fish in less than 2 hours before I had to cut it short for the kids. When we docked I saw another crew that went deep sea fishing with about 8 fish laid out with a nice sized bonito and mahi so seems like both are productive

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

Trolling and teaser fishing can be hit or miss. Never a guarantee. If it’s important to make sure everyone catches fish or kids are onboard, then try a bottom fishing trip. The weather and sea are beautiful. Can be very windy at times.

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

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.

Maybe not all species are hitting but a lot are. One boat landed a handful of wahoo and tamed a sailfish which are typically scarce this time of year.

We booked the morning run and had a great experience. Crew says it doesn’t matter time of day to fish. We wore runners and shorts/swimsuits. Sunscreen. Bring a cooler to put any fish you wish to take home and they will supply ice. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t catch fish for a bit as the first few minutes is travelling to where most of the fish are. They supply water and Coke. Enjoy!!
