Bottom Fishing in Aruba

The tiny island of Aruba is a melting pot of cultures – and the sea offers a range of diverse species, too. Best known for its offshore fishing haunts, the real wealth of fish lies in local reefs and flats. Aruba bottom fishing charters will take you to some of the most productive waters in the Caribbean. Come aboard to land a prized catch under the glorious sun. 

What to Expect

It’s not difficult to see why Aruba is becoming an angling hotspot. In the Caribbean, you’ll target a range of exciting, beautiful, and delicious fish within minutes from shore. 
Whether fishing out of the island’s capital, Oranjestad, or its northern port, Noord, you’ll have access to a wealth of fishing grounds. Fish the flats, or head to the nearshore reefs to bottom fish. With trips lasting between four, six, and eight hours, you’ll have plenty of time to discover the variety of fishing on offer. 
Beginners may prefer a shorter trip to learn the ropes. Head to the reefs and go after delicious Snappers, Groupers, Triggerfish, and many more. Here, you’ll have the chance to test yourself without the work getting too strenuous. You’ll also get more bang for your buck as you get hit after hit, after hit.
The wealth of fish on offer in the reefs will also appeal to the more experienced among you. Yet, if you want a thrilling bottom fishing experience, a trip to the mangrove flats is what you want. 
These shallow waters are overflowing with a range of prized fish, such as Snook, Tarpon, Bonefish, and Jacks. Often referred to as “hunting the water,” you’ll have to creep up quietly on your prey and cast with precision to lure the bite. As soon as you feel the pull, you’ll know you’re in for the fight of a lifetime.

How to Prepare

As you’re sure to work up a sweat, you’ll be glad to know that most Aruba bottom fishing charters provide drinks. They’re also likely to give you snacks on three-quarter day trips and lunch on a full day trip. If you’re going out for only four hours, you should bring some snacks and drinks of your own.
Aboard a sturdy vessel, you’ll have everything you need for a productive day, including rods, reels, and tackle. Make the most of the stunning weather or cool down in the shade. Just make sure to bring some sunscreen, a hat, and shades to protect yourself. 
Other than that, you’re good to go! Bring the whole family aboard for a memorable day out on the Caribbean’s stunning waters.

What People Are Saying About Bottom Fishing in Aruba

"One of the best Aruba fishing options! "

Todd Clark fished with Adventure Diver–Catalina Party Boat on July 1, 2018

Had a great time on the boat with this family. Bottom fishing was a blast. Caught a lot of fish. Special thanks for taking care of my son when he started getting sea sick (6 foot waves will get to anyone). Will be back in spring and taking trip again. Thanks! A++
