Captain Jerry's Watersports

Make your time at the Cayman Islands truly memorable and go fishing with Captain Jerry’s Watersports! Let Captain Jerry Ebanks take you out on the pristine local waters, where when you’re not catching gorgeous fish, you can admire the views and snorkel to cool off.

Capt. Jerry has spent most of his life fishing and teaching others how to do it, so you’ll be in good hands with this seasoned pro. He’ll take you out on his 42’ Rob Shirley center console that can fit up to 8 people on board. The “Trinity” is much larger than most of the fishing boats in the area, which means a higher level of comfort and a smoother ride.

It sports a hard top which provides lots of shade to keep you nice and cool, and a private toilet. There’s a fighting chair on board to help you wrestle potential monster catch and you’ll be using top-notch Shimano and Penn equipment to reel in whatever gulped down your bait. If you want to take a break, let your guide know, and he’ll give you snorkeling gear to jump into the water and relax.

What you’ll fish for depends on the trip you choose. On reef excursions, you’ll mostly focus on Yellowtail, Triggerfish, and Snapper species. If you book a half day deep sea trip, you’ll go after Amberjack, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi. Full day deep sea fishing expeditions are reserved for avid game fish anglers looking to hook their next Marlin and Tuna trophy catch.

Whatever option you choose, it can be adapted to your level of angling skill and age of the people in the group. Capt. Jerry loves having kids on board, and he always tries to make his charters as family-friendly as possible. These are all-inclusive packages, so drinks, snacks, and lunch on full day trips are included. It’s recommended to bring sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, as well as a bathing suit and towels if you plan on snorkeling.

Your Cayman Island fishing escapades with Captain Jerry’s Watersports are but a few clicks away!

I was working with Captain Marvin's Watersports from 1994 until 2019 as a boat captain with over 25 years of experience. That allowed me to start my own business (Captain Jerry's Watersports) and do what I love best (fishing). I'm a lover of the ocean and I enjoy meeting people, especially on my charters, and talking to them about the wildlife in the Cayman Islands. I do my best so that my customers catch some fish and perhaps have a delicious meal out of it.
