FISHING CHARTER...HALF DAY

Share this Trip
Add to Itinerary

Your experienced captain will take you aboard his 35' Bertram Sportfisherman for a half-day trip to fish the abundant waters of Aruba. It will be just you and your group on your own chartered vessel!

The boat is fully rigged with fish-recorder, sounders, radar, twin VHF marine radios, life jackets, and stereo radio. It is equipped with 20 lb., 50 lb., and 80 lb. Penn International and Shimano Professional rods and reels. Bait is included, as are bottled water and soft drinks. A cooler with ice is provided if you'd like to bring your own beer.

A wide variety of fish inhabit the waters of Aruba, including white and blue marlin, sailfish, mahi-mahi, barracuda, wahoo, amberjack, kingfish, bonito, and black and yellow fin tuna. Although it's possible to catch any of the above fish at any time of the year, the peak season for marlin and sailfish is October-April. The best time for swordfish is August-February.

To ensure the best fishing for the future, this captain and crew strictly practice catch-and-release for all billfish. Other species caught are distributed among the crew, unless you request a fillet for a local hotel or restaurant to prepare for your dinner.

  • This tour includes:
  • Half-day fishing safari aboard a 35' Bertram Sportfisherman
  • All necessary equipment, including rods, reels, and bait
  • Bottled water and soft drinks

Transfer / Meeting Instructions

Taxi and Transfers Required Specific pick up or taxi instructions will appear on your voucher after you purchase your trip.

Special Instructions

• From the cruise pier, you can either take a taxi (5-8 minute ride and $5-$8 each way, per taxi, for up to 4 people) or walk (a 10-12 minute walk) to the fishing boat. Specific instructions will appear on your voucher.
• Deep Sea fishing means all poles are held in place by rod holders until a fish takes the bait. At that point, the mate or captain will set the hook, then hand the pole to the angler once the angler is seated in the fighting chair.
• Bring sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and camera.
• If you are prone to seasickness, please take medicine for motion sickness 30 minutes prior to boarding the boat.
• Everyday may be a fishing day, but not necessarily a catching day. Catching fish is not guaranteed.
