    Shared fishing trips.

    Hi all.
    I'll be there for pretty much the first two weeks of October, & was wondering if anyone would like to share a trip or two.
    I'll be staying at the Riu Antillas if anyone would be interested.
    & i'm sure a few of you have been there before, so any boat recommendations would be really appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Hi! My husband and I are interested. We get into Aruba on October 2nd and leave the 9th. We already have plans for the 6th so any other time would be good. What were you thinking as far as when to go and how long you want the trip to be? Thanks!

    We have fished a few times. Are any of you first timers on a charter in Aruba? If so, you may not want to go as a group unless everyone is okay with coming in early if someone gets sick. Aruba fishing areas can be rough and we have heard stories from our fishing captains about many people being sea sick and wanting to come in early. If you are prone to motion sickness, take something ahead of time.
    Sharing a charter sounds like a good idea, but the reality is you are paying for an experience. If the other guests get sick, are you willing to give up your fee and experience to go back in early if they can't handle the seas?
    I feel like this sounds heartless, but it's something we have put a lot of thought into. To us, the cost of the full charter is worth the experience to us. I would also discuss the splitting of the catch prior to going out.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    We recommend Hatts Off Charters, class act. You can Google them for info. We did not enjoy our experience on Lucky Star.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    Hi Detroit97.
    I sent a reply a few days ago, but its not here somehow ?
    I'm pretty easy going, but would prefer a longer trip tbh.
    Drop me an email if your still up for it, & we'll sort something out.
    My wife doesnt fish, especially as my research has shown thats its normally a pretty rough ride most of the time. So i'll be looking for one or two others (if your ok with this) to help fill the boat. My email address is as follows: kevin_winterburn@sky.com
