Famous Turks and Caicos Fishing
These tropical islands are famous for the variety of quality of fishing experiences to be had. The group is made of several islands and small cays, all surrounded by some of the most pristine coral reefs in the world. Turks and Caicos island bone fishing in the tidal flats, deep sea fishing on the open waters, sport fishing for the Big Ones, and searching for the weird bottom dwelling denizens of the deep are all popular pastimes in this Caribbean vacation paradise. Turks and Caicos vacationers can use their own boats to fish, rent a boat to self pilot, or charter a boat with an experienced captain for a few hours or the whole day.
Turks and Caicos Island Bone Fishing
Bonefishing in the Turks and Caicos Islands is a long time tradition and many experienced charter captains are available to take fishing enthusiasts out into the tidal flats to cast where the “silent gray ghost of the flats” makes its home. The bonefish averages 6 lbs. and can grow to as much as 14 lbs. Travel writers have long described the island bonefish as being highly elusive, yet the Turks and Caicos fishing guides have decades of knowledge and know all the secret places and tricks of this fly fishing specialty. Contact Tranquility Vacations TCI to arrange your fishing trip and Turks and Caicos villa reservations now.
Historically Turks and Caicos fishermen hunted and captured the bonefish using gill nets and slapped the waters in the tidal flats to herd the bonefish into the trap. A traditional island dinner would include hashed bonefish, boiled potatoes or peas and grits. In modern times, islanders no longer use the traditional gill nets, but race through the flats in custom fly fishing boats taking world-class anglers to experience the challenge of island bone fishing.
Turks and Caicos Deep Sea Fishing
About a mile off shore the true Turks and Caicos deep sea fishing takes place out beyond the reefs. The islands are full of experienced skippers ready to take couples, families, or large group charters out for a day of blue water fishing. Turks and Caicos villa guests can go after Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Yellow-fin Tuna, Mahi Mahi (the Dolphin Fish), and the big Wahoo. Closer to the shore before the reefs give way to open ocean, the Turks and Caicos fishing is great for Groupers, Snappers, Sharks, and the fierce fighting Barracuda!
Fishing charters vary in price and amenities. Some of the fishing boats are brand-new state of the art vessels with cabins fitted for comfort and relaxation, other boats are,well, more “lived in”.
Turks and Caicos Shark Fishing
For those looking for that great vacation photo opportunity, Turks and Caicos Shark fishing is great year round. Local skippers know all the hot spots for finding Reef, Nurse, Lemon, Black Tip, Bull, and Tiger Sharks-these are not the little 2 foot sand sharks! Some Turks and Caicos charters offer night fishing, when some of the biggest Sharks, come to the surface to feed
Other Kinds of Fishing in Turks and Caicos
Every type of fishing is available for every kind of enthusiast on a Turks and Caicos Vacation. The islands are famous for their local lobster and conch divers and the Turks and Caicos Conch Festival draws big crowds every year. Conch Chowder has long been believed to be a powerful aphrodisiac so try it on your Turks and Caicos honeymoon!
Bottom fishing yields some huge (and ugly!) Grouper specimens. Island captains instruct vacationers on the art of spin tackle and using a sinker line to fish for the big Mutton Snapper. Turks and Caicos light tackle fishing brings in Mackerel, Jacks, and Small Tuna.
A Turks and Caicos villa vacation is not complete without a day on the waters to try the world-class fishing experiences. Tranquility Vacations TCI has relationships with several local fishing charters with highly experienced guides and captains. Boats can be found of all kinds, with most offering a covered deck for shade and plenty of ice and cold drinks for the trip. Half day and full day trips are available either in the shallows, out past the reef, or exploring the tidal flats where the secretive bonefish hang out.
