Get Bent Charters operates out of Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, creating unique packages where you call the shots. They have the equipment and the know-how to offer a wealth of water-based activities, from offshore battles against big game pelagics like Blue Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna, to inshore pleasure cruises spent petting Stingrays, diving for Lobsters, and swimming in the crystal clear Caribbean Sea.

Whatever you choose to do on your day with your day, there is no better place to do it than aboard the “Gunner”, Get Bent Charters 55 ft Ocean Yacht flybridge boat. This classic vessel offers everything you would expect for a day in the lap of luxury, including a spacious, air-conditioned interior with an enclosed head, cabin, galley, full surround sound system complete with exterior speakers, free wifi, Netflix, and plenty of space to relax in cool and comfort when you are done sunbathing on her spacious flybridge.

Do not be fooled by her luxury finish, though, the Gunner is named so for a reason. At heart she is still a fully-fledged fishing machine, ready to do battle on the high seas against the biggest and baddest the ocean can throw at you. She comes equipped with the latest Furuno electronics, a fighting chair, downriggers, outriggers, a livewell full to bursting with fresh live bait, and tournament grade tackle from the likes of Penn International.

With such a wide range of target species, you would expect Get Bent Charters to provide a range of different tackle options, and you would be right! On each trip, you will be presented with 5lb spinning rods all the way up to 80lb two-speed outfits, and the option to spin, jig, troll, drift and bottom fish, as well as trying your luck with traditional Caymanian handlining.

Whatever you choose to do, there truly is no better place to do it, so get ready for the trip of your dreams, and be sure to bring a camera, because these are memories you will treasure for the rest of your life!

Get Bent Charters is a family-owned business run by Nicholas and Matthew Panton, who have been operating charters for a combined total of nearly 24 years. They have spent their entire lives fishing in the Cayman Islands, ever since they were old enough to hold a rod. Matt and Nick were raised in a family which put great importance on being on the water, so they feel as at home on the sea as on land. These two brothers' love of the sea, combined with their extensive experience fishing both inshore and offshore, makes for the most productive Cayman Islands fishing you will find. And Matt and Nick will do more than just put you on fish, sharing their favorite beaches, and making sure you are having fun and getting the most out of your trip, whatever you choose to do.
