If you don’t go with the boat your crazy. Absolutely the best guide on Aruba. Went 3 days because he got us on fish everyday. Even when all other boats weren’t catching he got us hooked on some nice fish every time.

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.
