Founders & Legends
Deep Water Cay was founded by two fishing legends: Palm Beach guide Gil Drake Sr. and Field & Stream editor A.J. McClane. Their love for bonefishing led them to these now legendary flats off the East End of Grand Bahama, where they established Deep Water Cay, the legendary Bahamas fishing resort. Soon after, they were joined by other iconic anglers and their families as well as some of the top guides in the Bahamas.
The catches made over the years have now become part of the fabric of the resort. While Deep Water Cay has continued to evolve into the ultimate Bahamas fishing resort, throughout its long history the bonefishing hasn’t changed a bit.
"Several years could be spent fishing and cruising in these delightful waters with something new to discover on every voyage."
- A.J. McClane, Founder, Deep Water Cay
