Dwight was a great Captian and took us the star fish point and sting ray city prior to fishing.  It was great to be on a small boat and away from the large crowds.  Dwight warned us that the tides in the afternoon were not great for fishing as it was low tide. We still managed to catch 3 fish, 2 for my daughter which were her first in the ocean.  They were not keepers but they were fun for her and that is all that mattered to us.  Dwight is a great guy and shared many good stories of life in the Caymans.  I would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice family boat.  If you are serious about just fishing, I would check with Dwight before booking your time to find what time would be best for you. 
Thanks again Dwight for showing us a great time.

Thank you Mr Larson for your kind words.  It was a reel pleasure to have you and your family on board and we are glad you truly enjoyed your time with us.  I’ll pass your message to the rest of the crew. Till next time.
Tight lines,

Capt. Dwight Ebanks

ReelESea is a nice boat, very clean, excellent equipment. Dwight was a great Captain, professional and attentive.  We caught a few tuna and some barracuda, which seemed to be better than the other boats were doing.  Would have been a perfect fishing trip if the big boys had been biting but nobody was stirring up any fish.  I recommend ReelESea and plan to charter with them again next time we are in Grand Cayman.
