The Turks and Caicos Islands are a fisherman’s paradise, home to a barrier reef system with two underwater plateaus – one of which, the Caicos bank, is the second largest reef system in the Western Hemisphere. Within the reef are a multitude of fish and coral species, 250 which are known and documented. Located in the Caribbean Sea, north of the Dominican Republic, this lesser-known luxury haven for those in need of an escape is home to 31,000 full-time residents and is visited on an average year by just over one million tourists. Catchin’ Caicos is the island’s number one company for private fishing tours and luxury charters, owning the largest fishing yacht in the country with their pristine sixty foot Hatteras.
Setting out daily from Turtle Cove on Providenciales (Turks and Caicos’ main island) – Captain Roy, known affectionately as ‘the fish whisperer’ takes guests into the lush and fertile waters for finds of mahi-mahi, mackerel, snapper, tuna, marlin, and wahoo. Guests experience the height of success in their fishing outings with the Catchin’ Caicos team by utilizing the most advanced and top of the line equipment located onboard including but not limited to: Electric Tiagra 80W reels, Garmin Fish Finder, Tournament Rupp outriggers, Fin-nor-reels and Kristal bottom fishing reels. One happy client from November of 2020 writes, “From the time we contacted CJ at Catchin’ Caicos to the end of the trip, everything was outstanding. This 60’ Hatteras we took out was spectacular and spotless. The crew was amazingly helpful and informative. We learned a lot about fishing from Marvin and Captain Roy was very engaging and professional. We had a lot of fun, caught some great fish and got a family memory that will last forever. Highly recommended!”
The Turks and Caicos Islands experience sunshine throughout the year with an average temperature of 78 degrees Fahrenheit, leaving visitors with no “absolute best time to visit” but with the sublime convenience of scheduling a perfect trip at any time. Travel is a cinch, with a direct flight from Miami International Airport to Providenciales taking a mere one hour and thirty minutes. Home to some of the world’s most beautiful resort properties, guests can simmer in glory with most locations offering ocean views and direct beach access. Water sports aficionados find themselves at home with superior scuba diving and snorkeling operations, jet skiing, kite surfing, sailing, tubing, parasailing, and of course – deep sea fishing.
Often, guests of Catchin’ Caicos are impressed by the grandeur of the 60 foot Hatteras fishing yacht. The Hatteras builders appropriately named their company for Cape Hatteras in North Carolina, where over sixty years ago they began their legacy of innovation and craftsmanship that presides today as the leader in elegance, luxury, and functionality with their superior hulls. The Catchin’ Caicos sport fishing yacht can accommodate groups of up to fifteen guests for a single adventure on the crystal turquoise Caribbean waters, and overnight guests can enjoy a fully air-conditioned ship with three state rooms with three full bathrooms and a lovely salon with flat-screen televisions as well as other high-end amenities.
For guests with fears of Covid, the company has taken above-board precautions including the usual aspects of utilizing masks and sanitizer, but with the innovation of military-grade UV and laser sanitation after every trip – leaving behind neither Covid nor dangerous chemicals for their beloved clients. Guests enjoy a wide range of fantastic catering from local artisan chefs and restaurants, uplifting the trip from a traditional day on the water to a magnificent excursion. Additional outings including days of snorkeling, island hopping, whale watching, or just a party on the water can be arranged through the Catchin’ Caicos booking line at 649.244.2927.
