“Perfect. As close to Heaven as is safe for sanity!”

Off the east end of the Caribbean’s Grand Bahama Island, you’ll discover a watersports paradise for generations past and generations yet to come, where each day is filled with new possibilities. As a premier saltwater destination, Deep Water Cay has attracted celebrities as well as dedicated anglers from all walks of life. Actor Liam Neeson has described it as simply, “Perfect. As close to Heaven as is safe for sanity!”deep-water-cay-fly-fishing-collage-1

More than fifty years ago, Field & Stream editor, A.J. McClane and Palm Beach fishing guide Gil Drake Sr. founded this small private island retreat, where anglers have been welcomed ever since. What originally led the founders to establish Deep Water Cay, the love and lore of bonefishing, remains the marquis activity with over 250 pristine square miles of bonefish and permit flats to explore the year round. But there’s so much more in store for those who are ready to tackle reef fishing and offshore opportunities for the big grouper, snapper and the blue water species including tuna, wahoo and mahi-mahi.

Fishing has always been an integral part of life in the Bahamas, where some of the world’s fishing legends, including Lefty Kreh, Flip Pallot and Chico Fernandez made their reputations. Well, now it’s your turn. Wade onto the flats alone or with your kids, or join one of our expert guides on a skiff, and create new fishing memories and stories to share for years to come. Here, the fishing tales are all true. Yvon Chouinard, Patagonia’s founder, enthused, “I’ve never seen a place with such big bonefish.”

When you’re not on the water or fishing off one of the Hell’s Bay Flats skiffs, known for drafting less than five inches, you’ll have time to enjoy the resort’s five-star cuisine, a blend of Bahamian, West Indian and Continental specialties. The fish, conch and lobster (lobster season is August 1 to March 30) are caught and prepared daily. You’ll want to join the other guests during the picnic lunches over at the secluded Stingray Beach, where snorkeling is a major attraction. And if you want to brave it, swim right along with the beautiful stingrays that seem to flourish on those flats. A unique experience that should not be missed.


At Deep Water Cay, there is a commitment to conservation and the long-term survival of bonefish. Through the resort’s close partnership with the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, future generations of anglers will have plentiful fish stocks and their chance to follow you when your experiences have become treasured memories. Book your adventure now and come experience the true meaning of island time, where the fishing is unparalleled, the cuisine is superb and the accommodations are luxurious.

A unique experience that should not be missed.
