Spent half a day with Sherwin and Gregory (morning). First, the boat was solid and being a Hatteras, it could handle the winds and seas of Aruba. From watching the Flying Fish to calling the Sea Gulls to chanting to the outriggers to landing fish. It was an incredible day. Started fishing immediately, no run time, 300 ft of water.... More

Just returned from Aruba and took the 6 hour trip. Have to say a little disappointed in the final results. It was fun when fish were hooked but lost a lot more than we caught. Not sure if that's the normal but overall a good time. I would recommend it to someone but not sure I would do it again.... More

Rusty and Greg did a great job with our fishing trip and we caught fish as they know the best spots to make it a successful trip.

I came to Aruba for the opportunity to fish the southern Caribbean and Hatts Off Fishing Charters delivered! Sherwin and Rusty are very skilled at what they do and will put you on the fish every time! A half day tour turned up 4 yellowfin and 2 barracuda. Biggest fish I've ever caught! Thanks guys! I will be back!

Found Hatts Off through online reviews. Since we were coming in by cruise ship, Glenn adjusted the start time to fit the ship's schedule. Dock is an easy walk of the cruise pier. Rusty and Sherman were top-notch. Boat was powerful. After each catch, Sherman made sure the boat was cleaned off. His baiting techniques were a wonder to watch.... More

We had a great trip on Sunday, 3/12/17. We went out and hooked up with a black fin Tuna within 10 minutes of leaving the dock! Went out to look for more near the large tankers anchored off the coast and boy did we find them. Ended up with a nice wahoo and 7 bonito tunas. We also had a... More

We had a remarkably great day fishing with Hatts off. Rusty, Sherwin & Alex provided a truly memorable outing for my son & me. We caught wahoo, amberjack and bonito in plenty. The action never stopped! The friendly & knowledgeable staff, especially Sherwin whose energy was boundless, made for a fun time. I'd recommend Hatts off to anyone.

My wife and I had a great day of fishing with Rusty and Sherwin on February 7th 2017 . These guys work well together and are excellent fisherman. Rusty's boat handling skills are second to none and Sherwin as First Mate is meticulous about keeping the fishing deck clean and organised. Top notch boat and equipment. I wanted to catch... More
