Our family has been to Aruba 5 times over the last 6 years and have never had a bad experience anywhere on the island....until we booked the Krystal. I have 3 daughters and one of them is a big fan of fishing so we wanted to let her pick an activity so she wanted to go fishing. We only had... More

Me and my wife chartered the Lucky Star. I have to say it was very unlucky not one fish and not even a bite. Never in all the years that we've been fishing have we been skunked .

Gregory and Humberto were great! Gregory even picked us up from our hotel. My travel mate and I were a bit dubious at the start as a trolley driver overheard us talking about wanting to fish and set this up minutes later... IT WAS GREAT! (Despite a tiny bit of sea sickness) It was our first time and we caught... More

The guys that run this boat are really nice people. We were only able to catch to my mom but they drove us around all over the place trying to get us some fish. The coolest thing is, there's a restaurant right here that will cook your fish for you right after you get off. I wish we would've caught... More

My family had a great time on the Driftwood. The crew was excellent and we landed a 35 pound wahoo. Definitely will be going back on my next trip.

My wife and I booked Driftwood for a morning deep sea fishing trip. We had a great time. We caught 8 Wahu (between 4 and 5 feet), and maybe 4 or 5 smaller tuna. We didn't realize that they had a restaurant, so, we ended up going there that evening to try out the fish we caught. Would definetly do... More

It was some of the best bottom fishing I've done. Let me start off by saying that most fishing charters will only take you as close as possible to shore as possible. I was afraid that I would run into the same problem so when I spoke to the captain & explained to him that I am an avid fisherman... More
