HEAR WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US
“Great place, great people and fun fishing.”
Chris Dorsey - President, Orion Entertainment
“I’ve spent a good part of my adult life in search of the world’s best hunting and angling destinations and believe that I may have found the best at Deep Water Cay. The combination of incredible angling and hospitality should put this place atop any angler’s bucket list.”
Bill Klyn - Patagonia, VP Marketing
”A trip to Deep water Cay is like visiting family. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, superb guides are very professional, fun, and can spot fish in cloudiest conditions to help us “blind casters” still catch fish… Gastronomic delights created by the new chef have amazingly raised the bar on already superb cuisine. The accommodations are cozy and comfortable affording superb views and all the creature comforts necessary. As for fishing, willing bonefish pushing double digits come at you in singles, doubles, and riding herd at the back of schools. These fish have “more bounce per ounce” providing multiple screaming runs and serious rod bending tugs… Permit pop up when you least expect them and mutton snappers suddenly appear and surprisingly mug your fly. Looking for the ultimate bonefish experience? Check out Deep Water Cay.”
April Vokey - Owner, Fly Gal Ventures in British Columbia
“As a saltwater destination, Deep Water Cay Club has secured itself as one of my favorites… Meals are 5-star, accommodations are lovely and Deep Water Cay Club’s guides are the best I have found in the flats. Without question, I will be back and am proud to have temporarily been part of the DWC team.”
“Our experience was perfect in every way – the physical beauty of the lodge and its majestic ocean side setting, the sumptuous food and the extraordinary service were all complimented by miles of pristine flats and one of the healthiest bone fish populations I have ever encountered. The opportunity to share this experience with Paul and the Bucs and Bones icons added another fine layer to the indelible lifetime memory created.”
“There are some flats destinations that have an abundance of fish or have guides at the top of their game or provide the comforts of first class accommodations or have a superbly anticipatory service staff or serve a diversity of delectable dishes and drinks or have seamless air access directly to the property or practice a committed conservation ethic but remarkably with extraordinary distinction; Deep Water Cay achieves and combines all of these attributes with unrivaled excellence!”
Yvon Chouinard - Founder Patagonia

A perfect combination of beautiful water, cays, isles, hospitality and 4-star food. I’ll be back.
Ross Purnell - Editor, Fly Fisherman Magazine
The new ownership has built the finest bonefish lodge in the Bahamas right where it should be — smack dab in the middle of some of the Bahamas’ most historically important bonefish and permit flats. You can literally step out the back door in the morning light and catch a bonefish before you get your morning cup of coffee.
Perk Perkins - Orvis
What a place to be shipwrecked. Oh… for a week of Meko, and everyone else on the DWC Team. I’m proud to be associated with Deep Water Cay.
Joseph A. Turano, III – Houston
Thank you so much for the invite to your grand opening, I so enjoyed meeting everyone! I had lunch with Jim and Joe D. and we are planning our next trip to DWC, which will soon become our go to destination, what a great job you all have done. I can’t think of one thing I would change!

Christmas 2012… Our family had the best time! We love Deep Water and look forward to coming back next year for our 3rd visit.
Mr. & Mrs. Bailey Sory – San Francisco,
Christmas 2012 & New Years 2013. World’s largest baby permit caught with much grace. Special to spend time with family which included the DWC Team. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Harry Craig and Family – Topeka, Kansas
The fishing was outstanding and the scuba was fantastic! For us, the people, the food and the whiskey were the best. If you want to catch bonefish get one of their many experienced Guides. Thanks for letting us live and dream for a week.
Russell Brandon -Topeka, Kansas
DWC was more than I ever expected. The fishing was incredible and the accommodations and food were World Class! I look forward to coming back here next year and many more after that. Thank you so much for a great time.
Harry Craig III – Auburn Kansas
Deep Water is truly an experience of a lifetime! This was my first time fly fishing for bonefish. The Guides were top notch and very helpful for a ‘rookie’. Thanks for a great time!
Ken Gehman -Ontario, Canada
Deep Water was a fabulous experience… great bonefishing, fabulous Guides and the food was out of this world. Look forward to coming again.
Bill & Sally Jackson – Charlotte, NC
We have found a beautiful haven here! The Staff is so polite and accommodating. Food is delicious. We do not fly fish, but watch out, because all of our bonefishing buddies are coming down here next year! You have created the perfect Island destination experience. Thanks so much!
David and Nancy Lodge – Encino, CA
What a great introduction to the Bahamas. People here are great! Can’t wait for another opportunity to visit. The staff and Guides (especially Joseph) are wonderful. We will be back!
