Deep Water Cay – Bahamas

Deep Water Cay operations are currently suspended as it rebuilds from Hurricane’s Dorian’s destruction. Go to for updates and to see how you can help.

Location: A private island, 5 minutes (by ferry) from the east end of Grand Bahama Island.

Fishery: Deep Water Cay is a trophy bonefish destination. With most fish in the 2-8lb range, the 10lb bonefish is not uncommon here. The remote and expansive flats of east Grand Bahama Island have a lot to offer both in scenery and experience. You’ll be wading hard white sand where seeing fish is easy or you’ll be poling luscious turtlegrass flats. The flats by the lodge also make for a great after dinner tailer session.

Accomodations: The granddaddy of bonefish lodges has hosted legends and pioneers of fly fishing and has earned its legacy. Fresh local ingredients make up the blend of Bahamian, West Indian and Continental cuisines. With professional chefs, the veteran lodge takes food seriously. DWC also offers amazing snorkeling and other non-fishing water activities. Service is top notch and amenities are of a luxurious nature.
