In most locations around the world, guests have to travel aboard their charter vessel for several miles and in most cases one hour or more to reach big game fish territory. In essence this is time wasted! Turks and Caicos Islands are fortunate to be located just minutes from the impressive Caicos Passage, a deep ocean trench that drops into the abyss 6000 feet and beyond. These deep waters host an array of big game fish throughout the year.
