The fishing off Grand Cayman is known to be some of the best in the world. Try your luck deep sea fishing, reef fishing or on the flats chasing anything from Marlin to Tarpon. Due to its location, there is always an area to fish in calm waters even on windy days. Checkout our fishing calendar below to get an idea on what type of fish are biting when you are visiting.
The best thing about fishing around Cayman is the proximity to the drop-off around the Island. In many locations around the world you will need to spend 1 to 2 hours just getting to the fishing grounds but in Cayman it is always less then 10 min after leaving the dock!. The reason for this is that Cayman is surrounded by some of the deepest water in the world, namely the Cayman Trench which is 25,216 feet (7.65 KM) deep. The barrier reef surrounding the whole Island is only 500 – 800 feet from shore which makes it a breeze to reach the deep waters to start fishing.
CAYMAN - DEEP SEA FISHING
Set out to the barrier reef surrounding Grand Cayman and fish some of the Caribbean’s best fishing spots. When you arrive at the outside deep waters of the barrier reef the crew will put out 6 to 8 rods with lures or dead bait on them. These lures and baits will then be trolled along the drop off or in the deeper waters depending on which fish you are targeting. During this time “trolling” the boat will move between 6 to 8 knots and the crew will keep an eye out for birds, free jumping fish or even debris in the ocean.
Our expert skippers will offer tips on how to fish and then it's your turn to test out your skills. Whether you're a novice fisher or an experienced angler these trips will be enjoyed by all. The trips are usually offered as 4 hour or 8 hour charters but most boats can customize this according to your needs. You can also combine different activities such as snorkeling, Stingray Sand Bar, Starfish Point or sightseeing to this trip.
Our crews all have many years of experience fishing the Cayman waters and our boats are equipped with the highest quality rods, reels, downriggers, outriggers and electronics. Many fishing records have been caught aboard these boats. When deep sea fishing, we target Blue Marlin, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi and Tuna.
CAYMAN - REEF FISHING
Settle in as your experienced skipper cruises you out to a shallow reef just off the shore, where you'll find some of the best fishing spots around. Fish for grouper, snapper, Ocean Turbot and more. The Cayman waters here are brimming with plentiful marine life.
CAYMAN - 12 MILE BANK AND 60 MILE BANK
These banks are located as their name says either 12 miles or 60 miles from Grand Cayman and will take a while to get to. Most boats will offer trips to these banks as an option but in the case of 60 Mile bank you will need a min. of 14 hour charter. The easiest bank to get to is 12 mile bank and you are nearly guaranteed a good catch if going there. The bank consists of an underwater mountain that comes up to a depth of 80 feet from the surrounding waters of over 5000 feet deep. The banks are famous for their large Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo and Marlin.
The Cayman Islands are a country consisting of 3 islands, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.
Grand Cayman is the main Island and the center of most development. The Island is 102 square miles and is considered to be in the West Caribbean. The capital city is Georgetown and thus is also a very popular cruise ship port. It is very common to see up to seven large cruise ships in the port.
The Islands are known for their offshore financial services but also for the amazing beauty of their marine resources. The Island has a huge lagoon known as the North Sound which offers amazing snorkeling in relative shallow waters of around 10 feet.
The most famous beach on the Island is seven mile beach which is a long white beach with crystal clear waters. All in all this Island is perfect for a great holiday.

The dolphin is one of the world's premiere offshore sport fish, found worldwide in tropical waters. When hooked, these colorful fish leap - often many times - before settling down to slug it out, turning their flat-sided bodies against you.
The larger fish tend to pair up or run as individuals. Schools of fish often gather under and around weed lines and floating debris such as cardboard boxes, logs, boards and oil drums. Even tiny items such as coconuts and soda cans have the potential to hold dolphin.

Yellowfin Tuna, Allison Tuna, Backache
The Yellowfin is perhaps the most colorful of all the tuna. Found globally in tropical and subtropical seas, it's one of the world's most popular fish. Even small Yellowfin tax light tackle to the limits, and the brute strength of larger fish requires heavy stand-up gear. Not only great gamefish, Yellowfin are mighty tasty. This dual attribute causes anglers to travel thousands of miles to reach these 'destination' fish. Wherever found, Yellowfin tuna will have a following, both sport and commercial.M
A pelagic species, Yellowfin are fond of deep blue water. In the Atlantic, they will be found in the Gulf Stream year-around. The flesh of this fish is light, not dark like the Bluefin or white like the Albacore. Yellowfin can sometimes be distinguished from near cousins, Blackfin and Bigeye Tuna, by their long second dorsal and anal fins, but not all individuals have this exaggeration.
In a sense, Yellowfin are an eating-machine, putting on pounds like no other fish. A year-and-a-half old Yellowfin can weigh 8 pounds, and by its fourth year the fish will scale out at a whopping 140 pounds.
Real Name: Sphyraena Barracuda

Great Barracuda, Common Barracuda, 'Cuda

While reviled by some as bait and lure stealers, the great barracuda is an exciting game fish that will hit everything from live baits to flies. When hooked, the 'cuda makes sizzling runs and often jumps. Widespread and readily available, the 'cuda has salvaged many a fishing day by being the only fish that proved willing to strike.
Real Name: Makaira Nigricans
Average Weight: 100 lb. - 500 lb.
Of all the world's marine game fish, none is more celebrated or generates more excitement than the blue marlin. The fish of Hemingway's Old Man and The Sea fights with a strength that is only exceeded by that of the giant bluefin tuna, and often makes spectacular leaps when first hooked. Plus, there's something about the fish's sleek appearance, accented by a rapier bill, that inspires awe in even the most casual angler. Then, of course, there is the fish's size. Blue marlin weighing up to 1,400 pounds have been caught on rod and reel, and many experts believe that they attain even greater sizes (fish weighing over 2,000 pounds have reportedly been hooked and lost).
Although considered a heavy-tackle adversary, smaller blue marlin (100 to 300 pounds) make for excellent sport on 20- to 30-pound-class stand-up tackle and even fly gear. In some locations, at certain times of year, fish of this size can be fairly numerous.
Real Name: Istiophorus Platyperus
Average Weight: 16 lb. - 67 lb.
IGFA Record: 141 lb.
