Top Deep Sea Fishing Charters in Aruba

Deep Sea Fishing in Aruba

The deep sea fishing Aruba is known for always has something to deliver. Anglers here catch the likes of Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi all year. With the hottest fishing grounds just a few miles from shore, this world class fishery is all the more accessible. So come aboard, drop your line in several hundred feet of water, then head back to shore in time to enjoy your catch for lunch!

When to Go Deep Sea Fishing

Most local charter fleets are based in the capital city Oranjestad, on the west side of the island where the winds and water stay calmest. Depending on your target species and the time of year, fishing grounds on the north and south side of the island can produce some of the best action.

In fall, many anglers chase after Sailfish along the banks of the south shore, then they head north in winter to catch Blue and White Marlin. If you’re eager to hook into all three of these Billfish and earn bragging rights to a Grand Slam, plan on fishing in late fall.

Summer marks the peak season for Tuna and Mahi Mahi, while winter is all about Wahoo, Marlin, and bottom fish.

Aruba Deep Sea Fishing Charters

Handline fishing is the most common method used in Aruba, and you can expect to try your hand at this while deep sea fishing here. Relying on little more than a fishing line, hooks, and lead weights, local anglers fish in water hundreds of feet deep and wrestle with massive game fish, often pulling them aboard with their bare hands. Alternatively, some local charter boats troll with live bait or lures to help you catch pelagic predators like Marlin, Sailfish, and Wahoo.

With steep drop offs only minutes from the dock, it takes no time at all to reach the fishing grounds. Anglers can take their pick of 4, 6, and 8 hour charters, typically ranging from $400-$800 in price. Trips usually include fishing licenses, bait, and gear.

All in all, it’s easy to make a little space in both your schedule and your budget for a chance to explore the magnificent deep sea fishing Aruba has on its doorstep!

What People Are Saying About Deep Sea Fishing in Aruba

"First deep sea trip"

Oleh Chorniy fished with Dorothy Fishing Charters on January 12, 2019

Yesterday afternoon we went on our first deep sea trip. Overall we had very good experience. Waves weren't too big so nobody got seasick. Captain Roberto and mate Jerry were very nice and showed us how do they make rig with ballyhoo. Unfortunately fishing was slow and we got only two barracudas and two more strikes that fish was lost. Would recommend this charter to my friends.

"6 Hour trip with Captain Milton and first mate Michael"

Mike Barrett fished with Teaser Charters - 35’ Bertram on November 12, 2018

First Deep Sea Fishing Trip! Captain Milton and First Mate Michael did a fantastic job of making this trip a great memory. Caught Mahi Mahi and a couple of Sail Fish. Would recommend the Teaser for my next Charter!!

"3/4 day trip with captain Mike and deck hand Thomas. "

Robert Muller fished with Kristel Fishing Aruba - 44’ Striker on May 19, 2018

I have been deep sea fishing about 30 times and this captain and more importantly, deck hand, were the best I have worked with. I sent some friends to this crew also and they said they were incredible too. I recommend these guys for every fishing trip you ever take.
