Fish Curaçao

Capt. Gordo Willemstad, Curaçao Incorporated Licensed Insured

Bucket list fishing trips is what Fish Curaçao is all about! Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Great Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, and Sailfish… Need we see more! Let Captain Gordo and the Fish Curaçao team make your deep sea fishing dreams come true.

Captain Gordo welcomes you aboard the Papucho IV, a meticulously maintained 45ft Hatteras Sportfishing Yacht. She was built with both performance and comfort in mind making her one of the most comfortable charter boats in Willemstad, Curaçao. Onboard you’ll find a private toilet, air conditioning, a spacious salon (living room), and other comforts from home. But you didn’t travel to Curaçao to sit inside the boat all day, you came to fish! Captain Gordo has outfitted the Papucho IV with outriggers, tuna tubes, a fighting chair, fish finder, gps, chart plotter, and other top of the line electronics to ensure your deep sea fishing trip is filled with trophy sized fish.

Fish Curaçao can comfortably fish up to 6 anglers on board on each trip. What’s the best part about fishing with Captain Gordo? No prior fishing experience is required! Captain Gordo and the Fish Curaçao team are just as adept at running family friendly trips for beginners as they are at providing tournament quality fishing trips for veteran anglers. No two trips are ever the same! Captain Gordo will work with your group prior to your arrival to learn about your group’s experience, expectations, and custom tailor your day on the water to meet your needs.

Whether you’re planning a half day or full day trip aboard the Papucho IV, your next fishing trip in Willemstad, Curaçao will be one for the books! It goes without saying, the longer the trip you’re planning, the more fish you’ll be bringing back to the dock! The half day trips are great for young families, beginners, or the anglers short on time. To make the most out of our world class deep sea fishing opportunities, we highly recommend our full day trips! Acrobatic Sailfish, rod bending Yellowfin Tuna, and drag screaming Marlin are caught much more frequently on these trips. Regardless of the trip you decide to book, throughout the year you’ll find Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Great Barracuda, Blackfin Tuna, Grouper, Mutton Snapper, Amberjack, Red Snapper, and more tugging on the other end of your line!

That 130lb sushi grade Yellowfin Tuna won’t wait around forever… Book your next trip with the Fish Curaçao team today! You’ll be greeted on the docks with warm, eager smiles from Captain Gordo and his team as they await to show you the unbelievable fishing opportunities found just a stone’s throw away off the coast of Willemstad, Curaçao!

Blue Marlin release trip fishing at around 7 different Fish Aggregating Devices (FAD's)

FAD's are man made underwater structures where an unbelievable number of Pelagic Predators are found in abundance throughout the year. The structures provide "Shelter" in the middle of the open water where bait fish congregate, which bring in smaller game fish such as Tuna and Mahi Mahi, which in turn attracts Blue Marlin to prey on the Tuna and Mahi Mahi. Bring your camera on this trip, your friends back home won't believe what you catch.... It's a complete, self sustaining eco system very few people in the world get to experience.

By catch included: Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo.
