Deep sea fishing onboard the Melina begins as soon as you leave the Hadicurari dock. No waiting. As we untie from the dock and start our cruise out over the beautiful Caribbean Sea the crew drop the lines getting ready for a great day on the water. They will be looking for Wahoo, Kingfish, Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Shark and the occasional Billfish when they migrate into our waters.
What we guarantee is that you will have a great day onboard the Melina. At the end of the charter you can leave the cooking of your catch to us if you wish. We can arrange for one of our restaurant partners to cook up your catch, or if you would like the crew will clean and filet enough fish for you to take and cook at your own place.
We hope to see you onboard the Melina and on Aruba… Tight lines… Captain Peter.
