Slackem Charters – 52' Hatteras

If you’re looking for an incredible fishing adventure in the Cayman Islands, then look no further. Book a trip with Slackem Charters today for a trip like no other. Captain Jon is a local who has been fishing for nearly 4 decades. He always wanted to own his own charter company and share his passion for fishing with his customers. He knows all the top places to go for a fishing trip like no other.

The day will be spent on “Back ‘r’ Down,” a beautiful boat that can have groups of up to 15 people on board. There’s plenty of inside space and a huge deck for reeling in the fish. If you need a fishing trip for a family event, team bonding, or a trip with friends, this is the perfect boat for you.

You’ll head out up to 5 miles on shorter trips and up to 12 miles from shore on the longer trips. This gives you an opportunity to target the likes of Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Wahoo, Barracuda, and many more.

These trips are highly flexible. You can decide to deep sea fish for big pelagic predators or head to the reefs for smaller fishing. Families love to visit the stingrays and go snorkeling. The captain will help make your day exactly how you envision it to be, just let him know what you desire before the day.

Children of all ages are welcome on board, as long as they are supervised by a parent. Life vests of varying sizes are on board for them. Children especially enjoy fishing around the island, which is full of excitement and action for them.

Included in the price of the trip are top quality rods and reels that won’t let you down when reeling in your first fish or your hundredth. You’ll mostly be trolling so will need to take it in turns to fish. Your fishing license is also included in the price.

You should bring along food, sunscreen, and sunglasses. Wear light layers and deck shoes and then you’re all ready to go.
