Rules & Restrictions on Fishing

While visitors are welcome to enjoy the various fishing activities available in the Cayman Islands, they should be aware of certain restrictions, size limits and fishing seasons.

Visiting anglers will find plenty of options on all three islands from deep sea and sports fishing to reef fishing and light tackle fishing in the coastal flats. There are also a number of fishing tournaments held throughout the year. 

Seek local guidance

Hiring a licensed fishing guide is highly recommended, especially if you're new to fishing in the Cayman Islands. Guides can provide valuable insights into local fishing techniques, spots, and regulations, ensuring a safe and productive fishing experience. And, be patient. Remember, it's called fishing, not catching!
