Reel Vibes Charters

Book a trip with Reel Vibes Charters and experience the excitement of Cayman Islands’ deep sea fishing. Owner and operator Captain Stephen Ebanks is committed to providing professional guidance and an exciting adventure for anglers of all skill levels. Join him for a day of fishing in Grand Cayman and come see what you’ll reel in next.

Capt. Stephen’s 34’ SeaVee center console allows you to fish at speed and in comfort. This vessel is fitted with a range of safety and navigational gear and marine electronics, including GPS and a fishfinder. A fighting chair with an attached rod gimbal will help you reel in even the biggest catch. There’s also a private toilet to ensure that you won’t sacrifice your comfort, and the experienced crew is always standing by to assist in any way.

While fishing with Capt. Stephen, you’ll cast lines anywhere between 2 and 12 miles offshore. In these waters, it’s common to catch Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Jack, Grouper, Snapper, and other popular game fish – depending on the time of year and whether on an inshore or offshore charter.

Capt. Stephen is passionate about all types of fishing techniques, from light tackle fishing inshore to big game fishing. Whether you’re a seasoned angler or a novice, he’s ready to help you try your hand at a variety of methods such as bottom fishing, trolling, or drift fishing. He’ll provide top of the line gear by Penn and Shimano to help you land the next big one. 

When you book with Reel Vibes Charters, it includes a fishing license, gear, bottled water, and soft drinks. On combo Fishing/Snorkeling trips there is also the option to stop for lunch at Rum Point. The boat is conveniently docked at the Cayman Yacht Club with free parking just a few feet away, however free transport is also offered from the local area.

You’re welcome to take home any table fish you catch, and Capt. Stephen will gladly clean and bag it for you. Come aboard for an exciting experience and a catch to remember!

Hi my name is Stephen – a born and bred Caymanian. I come from a long line of ocean lovers and most of my family have made a living from the sea in one way or another. From a very young age l began to see the same love for the ocean developing in me just as it had in my grandfather and his sons over the years. I took every opportunity I could to venture out on the water with them, and that is where I felt most at home. Today this passion has proven to be my "first love." Being on the ocean and reeling in the big ones just makes my day, so it is only fitting that when I can put my guests on the fish, it makes me equally as happy – and I know they are, because I can see it in their smiles every time.
