Wahoo

People call them zebras of the sea, but they are really more comparable to cheetahs. Hook one and find out why.

Dolphin/ mahi-mahi

The fish so nice, they had to name it twice! This airborne acrobat is one of the most beautiful fish in the ocean, as well as one of the tastiest.

Swordfish

 

With 2,000 feet of water being less than 2 miles away from seven mile beach, Grand Cayman is the perfect place to try your luck with these amazing deep-water creatures. Pictured below is the first swordfish ever caught on a charter in Grand Cayman!

Mutton Snapper

Barracuda 

These ferocious predators are very abundant in the waters around the Cayman Islands. They can strip line and leap out of the water when hooked on the appropriate tackle.

Bonefish

There are few places in the world where you can catch as many bonefish as the Cayman Islands. This spunky species will give you the fight of a lifetime on light tackle. Catching double-digits on a half-day charter is not uncommon.
