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

Only one captain would take us and it had to be the dy he said which was when we couldn't go. They want you to rent the 8 hour deep sea boats. Another time.

Robert works out of Roberto's tent on the beach in front of the Holiday Inn, Palm Beach, Aruba. He talks a lot of baloney. It was a beautiful day (as most are in Aruba) but he said it was a rare day with bad swells and the tide wasn't right. Also blamed it on global warming. All these bolony excuses... More
