This season, Americans are flocking to the Caribbean Sea, where the destination of the Turks and Caicos Islands remain the highest rated tourist escape by Canadians and Americans alike. Nestled in a breathtaking jungle surrounded by white sands and crystal clear lagoons, the forty islands and cays that comprise this gorgeous getaway welcome just over one million tourists annually. On-island are a plethora of luxurious hotels and accommodations in breathtaking seaside villas suited to any budget. The Caribbean’s hidden gem is also home to a wide range of rare and delicious fish due to its large reef system, with the Caicos bank being the second largest in the Western Hemisphere. Beckoning travelers of the world to a host of adventure tourism escapes, the main island of Providenciales also boasts the best private fishing charter company in the Caribbean – Catchin’ Caicos.
The company’s original vessel – a world-renowned Hatteras 60’ motor yacht is captained by the “fish-whisperer” – Captain Roy, who has spent his life exploring the Turks and Caicos Islands. He and his crew are on a mission to provide guests with the ultimate luxury fishing charter experience. The yacht provides accommodation for up to fifteen guests, with three full cabins and bathrooms, state of the art fishing equipment, and a long list of add-on amenities that will suit the needs of every traveller. With the fantastic crew of Catchin’ Caicos, you’ll be in water that’s over 5000 ft deep within minutes, where you can catch wahoo, mahi-mahi, sailfish, snapper, triggerfish, grouper, and many others that are in season.
The Hatteras 60’, one of the vessels in the Catchin’ Caicos fleet, is a powerful motor yacht that offers luxury and practicality for private fishing tours and deep-sea exploration. It utilizes the most advanced and versatile machinery that achieves outstanding results. Pushed by Caterpillar 3412Fs at 1,400 horsepower each, the Hatteras cruises at 31 knots and reaches a top speed of 36 knots – a force to be reckoned with.
The Hatteras is the quintessential fishing yacht. It was the vision of Willis Slane, the legendary aviator and founder of the Hatteras company. Many considered him a pioneer in the yachting industry, responsible for building the first-ever large fiberglass cruiser, which was then thought impossible. The Knit Wits was a 41-foot fiberglass yacht that was the beginning of Hatteras’ long-lasting legacy. Since then, the company has built and sold vessels of exemplary quality. This kind of unmatched single-hull craftsmanship can only be found in the Hatteras brand. From the hull, to the deck, to the liner, Hatteras Yachts are meticulously constructed by world-class talents, producing the most dynamic and powerful watercraft.
This season, Catchin’ Caicos has added to their fleet with their latest-acquired sport fishing catamaran. The 36’ Benchmark Catamaran, like her sister vessels in the fleet, offers top-of-the-line fishing equipment. Her unique capabilities lay in the smooth-sailing ease as a perfectly-built catamaran, making days on the water simple for those who otherwise suffer on single-hulled-seas. While this vessel has only recently joined the fleet in January of 2021, she has found consistency in bookings and praise by the lucky passengers who have spent time fishing with her.
When traveling to the Turks and Caicos Islands, do not pass on the opportunity to embark on an adventurous journey with Catchin’ Caicos, highly recommended by tourists around the world. One recent TripAdvisor review reads, “In what seemed like the last minutes of the charter we had a triple hook-up of Wahoo…. and landed all three!!! Had a 40-50 pound wahoo on starboard short, 70 pound wahoo on port short and a “wee” hoo (20 pounds) way back on the shotgun. IT WAS A BLAST! We had so much fun, we went a second day…. which was just as much fun, better weather and resulted in several Wahoo, couple of Mahi and the occasional ‘cuda. Do yourself a favor and book a trip with Catchin’ Caicos!”
