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,

We caught fish, just not what we wanted to catch.  The weather did not cooperate…a storm came through while we were on the boat, so that likely kept us from catching bigger fish.  But, we did catch a lot of fish once the weather settled down.

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.

We had an incredible half day fishing trip.  Captain Dwight was awesome and keeps his boat spotless the entire time.  This was my first ever fishing charter (my girlfriend) and it was a great experience.  We caught about 10 fish, nothing huge but decent size and we later ate them and thoroughly enjoyed them.  We spent some time in the shallow reef area where 2 of us went swimming off the boat.  The captain’s helper dove for some conchs while at the reef and they offered them to us (I took one).  At the dock later, they took a lot of time to clean the conchs for us and filleted the fish.  If you don’t want any bones, be sure to ask them to remove them. I assumed the bones were removed and didn’t ask, so that’s my fault for assuming. 
I asked to ride up in the bridge and Capt Dwight was very personable as I asked lots of questions about the island.  We had a terrific time and would definitely book again.  As a side note, there was some confusion with the booking on the website, I guess some glitch on their end, but he more than made up for the issue on our trip by extending our time.  Glitches happen and it all ended well.

Overall the equipment was good, captain and crew were really nice. Caught a few keeper but not as good as last year with same boat. That’s why they call it fishing not catching

Captain Dwight was such a nice down to earth guy.  He made us feel comfortable and helped us fish.  He also took us to a great snorkel spot by the reef. It was the first time I didn’t feel like I was just a tourist and the guides were bored having to put up with us.  Best fishing trip yet. Highly recommend Dwight.

Bobby and Cliff were great.  They were very helpful and we all had a great time chatting with them.  They were also very accommodating as we did not realize we could not use credit cards to pay the remainder of our trip.  They did not postpone but allowed us to come back after to give them the cash.  They even let us pay for an extra hour so we could stay out a bit longer.
Great time!

The trip was fine.  Bobby, the captain. was very nice and accommodating.  The way to improve the trip would have been to re-rig with smaller hooks and bait.  We were reef fishing and getting lots of bites but only catching a few.  This in my opinion was partly due to the rigging being too large which caused the fish to eat the bait off the hook from the side instead of swallowing it allowing us to hook them.
Otherwise, all was as advertized.

The captain and mate were very nice!  They are expert, experienced anglers and for the reef trip, a first for my son, they were terrific.  I would certainly use them again to fish Grand Cayman, and would have no reservations about recommending them to anyone I know.
