This is a top-notch fishing destination. I went with three friends in April 2016 and fished for four days. Wonderful food, excellent fishing guides, well run. Other activities are available too, such as kayaking and sailing Hobie Cats. Check it out!

My husband and I recently went to Deep Water Cay for four nights before attending a wedding in Abaco. From the moment, we stepped foot on the island, everything was wonderful, from the kind Bahamians who staffed the resort to the three-course meal we were served on the first night. We stayed in the Drake House, a lovely two-bedroom, two-bathroom... More

Deep Water Cay is a world class fishing resort located off the eastern end of Grand Bahama island. The resort is expensive, but it’s also beautiful, quiet, and private.

This lodge is a first class facility with very experienced staff. The menu is varied and offers a balance in its selections. All of the guides are long term and none were doing any on the job learning. Both guides I used had 15 years experience. The cottages are clean and comfortable and the bars are accommodating.

Exceptional! From the accommodations, to the food, to the lodge. More importantly, the people and the fish simply make this place unique. It is not unusual to fish for eight hours on multiple flats without seeing another boat, another person, or any man made structure. Simply miles of beaches, flats, crystal clear water, and bonefish. The only thing better than... More

Deep Water Cay is the last great resort in the islands. It combines outstanding accommodations with world class fishing. A few tips if you travel there: Don't worry about going hungry (or thirsty!). Bring your fly rod with plenty of flies (I recommend a bonefish special, crazy charlies, and buy a few 'Meko Specials'). Rent a spinning rod the first... More
