Y-Knot Charters – 29' intrepid

Ready for an adventure of a lifetime? Join the skilled, local crew of Y-Knot Charters for an experience you’ll never forget! Captain Andrew Schirn is a passionate angler who enjoys making memories with his guests.

The “Knot Worried” is a spacious 29’ intrepid Center console boat offering plenty of space for up to 6 guests and shade. This beauty features a Marine head, freshwater wash down, and easy access to the water thanks to a big diving ladder. It also boasts down-riggers, a Black Magic fighting harness, an ice box, and top-notch marine electronics and safety gear.

The captain picks up customers at the yacht club. He will explain all you need to know about safety, and after that, the trip can start. The captain likes to listen to what his customers want to do and try to make the experience as tailored as possible.

West Bay is famous for deep-sea fishing. You’ll enjoy the ride to the open ocean within 5 minutes to the Cayman drop off, where you’ll fish for pelagic’s such as Wahoo, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Barracuda, and more! You can stay close to land and fish the drop-off or, weather permitting, venture farther out to the legendary Twelve Mile Bank.

You’ll be using various fishing techniques, including bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, and more. Trolling is the most common, and customers will take turns while fishing. If it’s reef fishing, 5 to 6 people can fish at the same time.

You’ll get to keep half of your catch, and when the trip is done, the captain cleans the fish for you to take home. The charter will cover the use of top-quality fishing gear, mostly by Penn. Snorkeling gear, lures, drinks, and licenses are also included.

You can rely on Y-Knot Charters for a heart-pumping, custom-tailored, and safe adventure out on the sweet-salty waters of magnificent Grand Cayman!
