Captain Charlie Charters - Wild Card

Captain Charlie Charters offers you a classic Cayman fishing experience. Spend the day aboard a modern, spacious boat with a skilled crew catching huge fish just a stone’s throw from shore. Visit colorful reefs, cruise white sandy beaches, and catch something tasty for dinner. What more could you want?

You can spend the day either on the reefs or in the deep waters beyond. Reef trips are great for families. You can fish for delicious Mutton and Yellowtail Snapper and take on hard-fighting Barracuda. You can also swim and snorkel around the reefs to discover the magical world beneath the waves.

Deep sea charters are all about big battles and huge fish. You will be trolling lures and ballyhoo to tempt in Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and more. The Cayman Islands sit on the edge of the deepest waters in the entire Caribbean and the number of pelagic predators you can find here is incredible.

Whatever you’re after, you will find it onboard the “Wild Card”. This 40’ Luhrs sportfisher can carry up to 10 guests, and fish 6-8 rods at a time. She has everything from outriggers and downriggers to quality Shimano gear and the latest electronics to make sure you catch a winner.

While you’re locking in battle at the back of the boat, the non-anglers in your party can explore a comfortable, air-conditioned cabin and a spacious sun deck to enjoy this tropical paradise in peace. The boat has a tall tuna tower to take in the view and a full, flushing head and freshwater shower for extra comfort on longer trips.

In short, Captain Charlie has thought of everything so you don’t have to. Trips are run by a team of top captains and deckhands from both Jamaica and the Caymans who will tailor each trip so you get the most out of your time on the water. Just climb aboard with your food and your sunscreen and let them create your perfect fishing charter.
