Your visit to the Cayman Islands simply cannot be complete without a fishing trip! Jackson Watersports is at your service year round and they offer trips suitable for all skill levels. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced angler, you’re bound to have a great time here!

Captain Lamar has been fishing in the area for 20 years and he participates in international tournaments every year. He won prizes for the biggest caught Tuna, heaviest Mahi Mahi, and most fish caught by one boat – long story short, you’re in good hands.

The crew welcomes you to their 28’ center console. The capacity is 10, but only up to 6 guests can fish at the same time. The boat is powered by 2 200 HP Yamaha engines and will reach any fishing spot very fast. There’s also a private toilet, a refrigerator, and all necessary navigational and safety equipment.

You can either go deep sea fishing or hunt at the reefs and depending on that, your target could be Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Tuna, Barracuda, Grouper, Snapper, Swordfish, and many more. There’s lots of different techniques you can try out and bow fishing is probably the one you’ve never tried before. The equipment for this is included in the price but you’ll have to take turns for safety reasons.

Catch cleaning is included in the price, so let that tasty meal after the trip be an extra motivation to catch more fish!

All trips depart from the Cayman Islands Yacht Club on Yacht Drive. If you’re staying on the Eastern end of the island, the crew can pick you up from Kaibo Yacht Club. You only need to let them know where you are staying when making your booking.

With Jackson Watersports, you can easily create a memory you will treasure for a lifetime.
