In the Cayman Islands, fishing is often called the unofficial "national sport." Prized game-fish like Blue Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi-mahi and Barracuda are caught year-round. With options such as shore fishing, bottom and reef fishing and flyfishing, Cayman visitors have the option to fish in different locations and styles every day of their Caribbean vacation!
Learn all about our local catches such as Bonefish, Tarpon and Permit first hand! Don’t forget to take advantage of the knowledgeable and friendly Caymanian captains and guides on modern sport-fishing charter boats.
And for those who like the thrill of competition, the Cayman Islands Angling Club and Rotary Club sponsor local fishing tournaments throughout the year. The top events are the Cayman Islands International Fishing Tournament, held annually in late April or early May and the Barcadere Classic held in January.
