Deep-Sea Fishing

Deep Sea Fishing on Pine Cay in the Turks and Caicos Islands

Pine Cay and The Meridian Club are close to some of the most exciting deep sea fishing areas in the Caribbean, located only a short boat ride away, just beyond the barrier reef. Unlike most deep sea fishing destinations, where it is frequently necessary to travel two hours or more to get to productive fishing water, you can often be fishing within 5-10 minutes after leaving the dock.

This makes half-day trips an attractive option for those who don’t wish to spend a whole day at sea. Prevailing winds, during most of the resort season, are from the east or northeast (offshore winds), making for a calmer ride than at many other locations. Frequently, you will see the fish you caught again later as the dinner “catch of the day”.

A variety of game fish are available, including:

  • Wahoo
  • Dolphinfish (Mahi Mahi)
  • Tuna
  • Cero and King Mackerel
  • Sailfish (catch and release)
  • Barracuda

And, if you’re lucky, you may catch and release a white or blue marlin, or even a rare spearfish. All of these fish are caught from time to time by our guests.

A Wildlife Show

No matter your luck fishing, some say the boat ride alone is worth the trip. Bonuses can include glimpses of other sea life such as pods of dolphin (the mammals) that swim with the boat, flying fish, Humpback, Beaked and Pilot whales, sea turtles and a variety of sea birds. Whale sharks also have been spotted on occasion.

Floating Between the Caribbean Sea and the Deep Water of the Atlantic

Located southeast of the Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos is a beautiful string of islands, islets and cays (Pine Cay, our private island resort, is one of them) floating right on the border between the Caribbean Sea and the deep water of the Atlantic Ocean.

The islands of Providenciales, Pine Cay, North Caicos, Middle Caicos and South Caicos are protected by a barrier reef that extends the length of this island chain, protecting us from the wild, open waters of the Atlantic.

A Reminder

We do have very capable guides, proper boats and all necessary equipment. However, unlike dedicated fishing camps, we don’t have the number of boats and guides necessary to accommodate large groups of fishermen who wish to fish every day. If our guides are otherwise occupied, we can usually make alternative arrangements with a competent local charter operator to take you out given sufficient notice.

We are pleased to announce that The Meridian Club only experienced minimal damage in the recent Hurricanes, Irma and Maria, and most importantly, all the members of our team remained safe throughout the storm.

As we are presently closed for our yearly summer renovations, our clean up and repairs are uninterrupted and going well. As such, we expect to remain on schedule, and are excited to keep moving towards our planned re-opening on November 1st 2017.

Currently, due to the damage done to the Turks & Caicos islands, we are experiencing some difficulties with telephone and internet. If you have contacted us please know that we will respond as soon as we can and appreciate your patience as we get back on our feet. We are still taking bookings as usual and hope to see you very soon at The Meridian Club.

Very best wishes from all of us here on Pine Cay!
