Please check our frequently asked questions. For more queries kindly let us know:
- Can you help us find another group to share the costs of the trip?
We're sorry we do not put groups together. A good way to find others to join you is on tripadvisor or around the pool at your hotel.
- How far ahead of time should I book?
Our slots fill up pretty fast; we recommend you contact us to book as soon as possible to increase your chance of going out on your desired date/time.
- Where do I need to go?
We are located downtown at the Renaissance Marina, and we are the 2nd boat on the right hand side of the Seaport Casino.

- How many people can I bring?
You can bring up to six people with you.
- Do I need to give out my credit card information?
Once your receive confirmation of your booking via e-mail or phone, it is considered a confirmed reservation. However some guests prefer to pre-pay or pay a deposit before hand, then yes, we will need your credit card information and billing information.
- Can we keep our fish?
Yes you may keep part of the fish caught on the trip. The fish is split between you and the crew. The fishermen earn their way of living this way. This also guarantees that they will try their hardest to catch fish, and not just take you out on a ride. You will find that they are most glad to gut, clean, and even fillet your fish for you.
- We would like to have our fish prepared for us, is that possible?
Yes! We can have your fish prepared for you at the restaurant for $17 per person for the preparation and side dishes. Please let the crew know that you would like to make a reservation to enjoy your own catch.
- At what time do we have to be at the dock?
15 minutes prior to your scheduled trip is recommended, so that we can leave on time and enjoy the most of your four, six, or eight-hour trip.
- Will I get sea sickness?
We recommend that if you have members in your group that are known have motion sickness, that they best stay on land. It can get choppy and it will most definitely not be a fun time for the rest of the group.
- Is there any age limit to get on board?
There is no limit as such. Aruba can be windy, and waters can go choppy as it is an offshore deep sea fishing excursion. So being careful is always recommended!
- Any insurance is required?
All the license and insurance are already taken care off.
