Nicholas Panton

Member since May 2017 George Town, Cayman Islands
Background
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 20 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.
