Your tropical vacation to Oranjestad, Aruba isn’t complete without a fishing charter! Aruba Bound Charters is a family owned and operated charter boat, specializing in both inshore and offshore fishing.

Hit the water with a family friendly, experienced crew. Captain Ryan Jones has over 15 years in the tourism industry and has become intimately familiar with the waters off the coast of Aruba. He’s carefully vetted his team of first mates who’ll be in the cockpit with you throughout the entirety of your trip. No prior fishing experience is needed to have a successful day on the water, your first mate for the day has over 20 years of fishing experience. He’ll make sure everyone on board is confident and comfortable when you’re hooked up on that drag screaming Wahoo!

Charter boat Aruba Bound is a 27ft center console fishing machine. She’s powered by duel 200hp Yamaha engines and was newly built in 2005. Onboard you’ll find a variety of fishing equipment Capt. Ryan Jones will use to put you on the fish. Her livewell will keep your bait fresh for those hungry Blue Marlin, and the fishfinder will keep you on top of an assortment of reef fish.

The season, fish you want to target, and your request will determine which fishing technique we’ll be using. We can troll to hunt for pelagic species such as Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Wahoo, White Marlin, King Mackerel, and more. If you’d rather spend the day bottom fishing for an assortment of reef fish, we’ll likely load up your cooler with Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, Cubera Snapper, Red Snapper, Porgy, Amberjack, and much more.

Aruba Bound Charters offers a variety of trip lengths to choose from! For the anglers and vacationers running short on time, the 3hr inshore reef fishing trip will give you a taste of Aruba’s abundant fishery. To really make the most out of your Aruban vacation, we highly suggest a 6-hour trip or longer! This will give Captain Ryan Jones time to take you to multiple fishing hot spots, further off the coast to fishing grounds that experience less fishing pressure and try different fishing techniques to target different species.

Why wait? Your dream vacation to Aruba is at your fingertips! Book your trip today and get ready to experience Aruba’s crystal blue, abundant waters with a veteran charter boat. Captain Ryan Jones and the Aruba Bound Charters team will tailor the trip to fit your needs and work their tails off to make your trip one for the books!

Great day on thee water
I’ve been traveling to Aruba for over 20 years and I’ve chartered a fishing trip on most of them. Ryan & Jerry were great. Easily one of the best charters. Ryan was working the entire time to put us on the fish - 3 nice size tuna & a big mahi trolling out to oil rig, caught too many jack to count on the rig while he worked to catch barracuda. Big one bit a jack in half before I brought it on the boat, and he hooked another large barracuda . Then caught 3 more nice tuna & a bonito on the way back to the marina. Enjoyed delicious sashimi for a couple of days & will definitely be booking with them on my next trip. Thanks again Ryan & Jerry - great day on the water.

highly knowledgeable Captain
Fished with Ryan and crew on 8/11 and 8/15. First trip got a nice Wahoo and a Spanish Mackerel. Second trip landed two nice Mahi, 7 Blackfin Tuna, a Barracuda, and a Rainbow runner. Ryan works hard to put you on the fish ! The boat arrived on time, and at the designated dock. Boat is in good shape, equipment is new and in good shape, and lines were always in the water. Plan to fish with Ryan again when I am in Aruba ! I would also recommend this charter if you are a novice/beginner, as Ryan watches-out for his clients and design a trip for any level.

Fantastic trip
We arrived at the wharf to a happy captain and crew boat running and ready to go.We we’re on the fishing grounds in no time with baits in the water.My cousin who had never fished got some tutoring from captain Ryan and ultimately caught the biggest fish.At the end of the trip our fish was cleaned bagged and ready to be cooked by a local restaurant.The trip was fantastic and we will definitely be back next year.Tight lines.
