Capt Marcelino and Anthony made our bottom fishing trip a treat! We opted for the bottom fishing instead of deep sea because of the limited experience of our kids. Marcelino brought us out to 80 ft deep water which was a short 15 minute trip from the harbour. With the deeper water, chances of bigger fish. We were not disappointed.... More

My daughter and her boyfriend went bottom fishing one day and had a fantastic time! Marcelino has an extensive knowledge of the waters around Aruba, as well as having great mates on board; Anthony and Jake. The crew was able to put them on fish after the first spot wasn't producing and he was quick to change spots if it... More

We had an amazing experience bottom fishing on The Caroline! Marcelino and first mate were so helpful and patient. We definitely caught more than 5 of us could eat! I truly and highly recommend spending the day on The Caroline.

My father and I love to deep sea fish. We were really looking forward to going in Aruba. There were just the 2 of us and paying $600.00 for a fishing charter for the 2 of us was not affordable. So we found a girl at our resort and booked it with her for $400.00. She is an avid fisherman,... More

After chartered a couple of fishing boats through out the Caribbean, I can proudly proclaim that The Caroline (Fishing Yacht Aruba) is the best experience. First, it is very reasonably priced and you embark right at Palm Beach. The crew is both extremely knowledge and helpful. We went about 12 miles off the coast of the island to go deep... More

Took three boys ages 15 to 17 out for an 8 hour trip. We were all rookies when it comes to deep sea fishing and novices when it comes to fishing in general. The captain and deck hand work their butts off to make the trip a success. We hit rough waters at the beginning and 2 boys got sick... More

We chose The Fishing Yacht club because of the previous good reviews and their lower price, but we were left disappointed. Without going into too many details, I will outline pros and cons and you can decide. Staff was on time, boat was clean, padded seats were comfortable, There were seats shielded from the sun with a cover over head,... More

To start it all off, this trip is only 350$!!!! Where I live they charge thousands of dollars to fish and don't catch a thing. Another thing is how friendly that the crew was, they spoke great English , and actually had a few great conversations with us while we went out to the windy side of the island. (Where... More
