Captain Asley’s Watersports is a family business started by Asley Ebanks in the early 1950s. With over 50 years’ experience, they are one of the most trustworthy charter companies in the area. They have guided countless customers to their very first catch or the fish of a lifetime, and boast extremely high customer approval ratings. Numerous tournament wins and catching the largest Blue Marlin in the local waters at 610lbs have further cemented their place as a premium Cayman fishing charter.

Fishing aboard a streamlined 40 ft Luhrs, Capt. Derrin Ebanks and his team will guide you to the magnificent fish available in the Caribbean Sea. Fishing the highly productive 12 mile bank to the west of the island, and the reef areas close to shore, they target Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo and Mahi as well as reef species such as Snappers and Jacks. The clean and comfortable boat is equipped with top of the range equipment, with 30, 50 and 80 pound class Shimano Tiagra reels used on board. With a fighting chair and stand up tackle available, all styles of angling will be catered for.

Captain Asley’s Watersports have a proven track record of providing quality, flexible excursions tailored to your needs. Whether you’re a serious angler or a family looking to spend time together in the fresh air, you will be more than welcome on board. Trips can include visiting Stingray City, Starfish Beach and snorkeling around the beautiful coral reefs. To put the icing on the cake, the company can even arrange to have your fresh catch prepared for you at the marina restaurant.

Capt. Derrin is extremely proud to be endorsed by Dr. Guy Harvey. He has worked with him several times, assisting him with research trips and several TV shows, as well as winning the CIAC Marlin release tournament with him. However, it’s not just celebrities who are treated warmly: all customers leave a fishing charter with Capt. Derrin as a friend and member of the extended family. Come experience fishing the Cayman way!

This was are first time in Cayman and did not know who to cook with. However we got very lucky with this trip don’t think we could have had a better captain or first mate. I will be booking with them again when we return. He is very knowledgeable about the area and fish here. Also has a great respect for the fish in the sea. If your looking for a good experience you have found it!!!!
