Deep Sea Fishing in Cayman Islands

In the heart of the Caribbean, the Cayman Islands are perfectly located to get you on deep waters. With nothing but sea for at least 230 miles in any direction, you’ll have the open oceans at your mercy, giving you the chance to go after a range of prized creatures. A Cayman Islands deep sea fishing adventure will let you get your fish on in style!

What fish can I target?

When your mind wanders to the Caribbean, you probably think of the golden beaches and crystal clear waters. The fish in the water are just as impressive! Blue and White Marlin, Blackfin and Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and many more sought-after beasts call these waters home. 
 
Each of these tough-fighting creatures promises an intense battle, with Tuna plunging to the depths with your bait and Marlin leaping out of the water to get off your line. Unlike in some places, the fish don’t grow to trophy sizes here, but their game qualities are just as strong, so settle in for a thrilling day’s fishing.

What to Expect

The great thing about deep sea fishing in the Cayman Islands is that it takes no time at all to get you to the productive fishing grounds. Within minutes, you can be battling it out with your target fish. Hop aboard a trip as short as four hours and land a couple of prized fish, or spend up to a few days on board putting your angling skills to the test and filling the boat with delicious meat.
 
Some charters take place aboard monster offshore sportfishing boats, where your comfort is paramount. These vessels are designed to give you the luxury treatment, so there’s plenty to keep you entertained even when you’re not fishing. Families and large groups may want to consider a trip aboard one of these beautiful boats, with space on some for up to 25 people. 
 
Avid anglers can get their fish on aboard more purpose-built fishing boats, such as center consoles. With the deep waters so close, you won’t need a huge machine, and center consoles can actually be of greater benefit to the more experienced. Make use of the 360-degree views and follow the fish from the bite to the boat as you battle it out. 

When to Go

Another bonus of Cayman Islands deep sea fishing is that it’s year-round. With a tropical climate, the islands offer you the chance to get out on the water whenever you like. The top pick of the big game fishing comes in summer, however, with the number of pelagics reaching its peak in the blistering heat. 

How to Prepare

All Cayman Islands deep sea fishing guides are passionate anglers, with many of them having moved to the Caribbean to follow their love of fishing. These captains will provide everything you need for a productive day out, including all the gear and bait or lures. Most will provide bottled water and some will offer lunch on longer trips. If this isn’t the case, you should bring your own food and drinks aboard and settle in for a fun-filled day out. 
 
Don’t miss out on landing yourself a prized fish when you’re in the Caribbean. Hop aboard a Cayman Islands deep sea fishing charter and get your fish on!

What anglers said about Deep Sea Fishing in Cayman Islands

We were lucky. The previous two days were bad for fishing. Summertime (off-season) isn’t the best time for fishing. You will have to be patient and hope that you have a great Captain like Andrew that just has that instinct to find them.

July is a bit slower fishing, so I'd research the best time of year to fish for a better bite. Be prepared with your own snacks if you are particular, and definitely bring a UV dri-fit fishing shirt and a hat to protect you from the sun.

In July- it was pretty hot, I suggest a boat with cover/shade. Most of the ride was calm but getting around the point had about 15 mins of rough waters- so if you get sickness- take Dramamine!! If taking kids- lots of suncreen and try to find a boat with a bathroom and shade because the slow ride out can get brutal from the sun. Overall- fishing was fun and got some good fish which we could recognize from prior snorkeling in the area.

Captain Cody recommended November through March as the best fishing times. However, for July we did extremely well.

Fishing in the caymans is terrific from the standpoint of you drop from 15ft to 1000ft in just a few minutes. You don’t travel far to get on large pelagic sea creatures.

Just understand the weather doesn’t always cooperate. The chef at Tukka knows what he’s doing and you won’t be disappointed in the meal he prepares with your catch.

May is a good month for fishing. The boat is comfortable with plenty of shade. Kids like to feed tarpon at the dock where the fish are cleaned. Sharks come in also. Good restaurants near the dock area. Finish a day of fishing with a good meal. Very accessible from the seven mile beach area.

A half day reef fishing trip is a great way to start. It’s not very far from shore and the water is beautiful. You’ll catch fish and have fun.

We didn’t catch the fish we hoped to but it is called “fishing” not catching!!! Not the captain and crews fault, just reality!

Told the captain we had young kids, so catching a good amount of fish was the goal more than keepers. Mission accomplished, plus the boat ride was fun and fast.

Lots of options; deep drop, reef, or blue water. Grand Cayman is unique in that it has access to the deepest water in the Caribbiean. Try to hit the tuna bite earlier than July to give you the best options for a big catch.

Put sunscreen on before you get in the boat and dont forget your legs. Water can get rough farther out so take the less drowsy dramamine.

Reef fishing is spectacular in Grand Cayman and you are all but assured bent rods and good eating. Mix that in with a trip to stingray city or snorkeling and it will make for an awesome day. We opted for an offshore trip and had a GREAT time. "Gunner" is an extremely well-equipped boat with the best tackle money can but (rare for a charter boat) with a top-notch crew that is both knowledgeable enough to impress an experienced angler and very kid-friendly. It is tough to find both.

Take a keen look at the winds and weather. Unusually strong winds of 20 knots prevented us from deep sea fishing, but nonetheless, had a great day of reef fishing with a good variety of fishing options... along with a final pull of a barracuda as we trolled back to harbor.
