Over the next six months, the Turks and Caicos Islands are primed to experience a magical array of massive, in-season fish. The island of Providenciales’ number one luxury fishing charter company, Catchin’ Caicos, and their whole team are ready to help travelers and angling enthusiasts reel in these spectacular specimens.
Lauded as one of the top private fishing charters in the Caribbean, Catchin’ Caicos has cruised through summer 2021 with overwhelming acclaim and looks ahead to a fruitful fall accompanied by fresh fish and unforgettable memories.
From July to September 2021, blue marlin, bigeye tuna and yellowfin tuna are abundant throughout the Providenciales region. Subsequently, November 2021 to March 2022 is expected to yield plenty of mature Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and Tuna.
Turks and Caicos’ proximity to marine shelves makes for a mere 10-minute excursion from dock to deep waters and excellent fishing terrain. These shelves begin at a depth of forty five feet and extend thousands of feet below sea level, and make up the second largest reef in the western hemisphere.
Guests of Catchin’ Caicos can explore the 40 islands and cays of Turks and Caicos, located 500 miles southeast of Miami, on their choice of a fully equipped 36’ Benchmark Catamaran or 60’ Hatteras yacht, which boasts a spacious fighting deck with all the room needed to land a trophy fish.
Each vessel comes standard with quality fishing equipment, like Talica TAC50II Drag Reels on the Benchmark and Shimano Tiagra TI80WA 2-Speed Lever Drag Reels on the Hatteras, all mounted on Blackfin rods. This combination of cold-forged reel and rod creates a drag system durable enough to sustain long battles with fish on the line.
Schools of fish aside, mid-August 2021 heralded the beginning of lobster season in Turks and Caicos featuring the spiny lobster, similarly known as rock lobster or sea crayfish (and Panulirus argus for the scientifically-inclined). These are found primarily in South Caicos, the acclaimed lobster capital of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
With “Fish Whisperer” Captain Roy, a 40-year yachting veteran, at the helm of Catchin’ Caicos I and Codney on Catchin’ Caicos II, no patch of gorgeous turquoise water will go uncharted. Having spent their entire lives in Turks and Caicos, these captains’ familiarity with the region and knowledge of its aquatic inhabitants accrue overwhelming praise on all review outlets.
Catchin’ Caicos receives consistently high marks on TripAdvisor and Facebook with over 50 exclusively five-star reviews across both platforms. One satisfied customer commended their guides on TripAdvisor, remarking that “Captain Roy and First Mate Marvin were so impressive!! So much work for them and they make it look easy!”
Captain Codney and First Mate Nick are a delightful team to all that have climbed aboard their vessel, Catchin’ Caicos II. During TripAdvisor user Chris H’s charter experience, “Nick was awesome with our two boys (9 and 12). He hooked us a 40 lb Wahoo!”
In a stunning display of excellence from Catchin’ Caicos and their customers alike, elated TripAdvisor user Anthony recounts that he and his son caught 25 fish, all over seven pounds, just from coral reef fishing.
“This was the best fishing experience of my life. The crew is just amazing. The captain puts you on the fish, and Nick, the first mate, is very helpful and very nice. BEST FISHING EVER!!!!” Anthony exclaimed.
Curation of the most idyllic luxury experience on the beautiful seas of Turks and Caicos is of the utmost importance for Catchin’ Caicos. An unprecedented, chartered excursion through the North Atlantic with rare and delicious fish, breathtaking views and welcoming, knowledgeable staff culminate in a seamless journey aboard a dream vessel.
