My husband and I booked a private charter on Gwendolyn. We were only interested in large game fish, no bottom feeders.
Initially we were concerned when our pick up was 10 minutes late. She arrived, her vehicle was clean and had water for us. We stopped in the Grand Slam Charters office at the dock took care of license, payment and were on our way. Fortunately we had booked Gwendolyn as it was a choppy day and Gwendolyn is larger boat than the other charters we contacted.
As we arrived at the boat (the docks are behind the office) it was fully stocked with Gatorade, Diet Coke, bottled water, beer and snacks. Hubby & I met our crew the Capt. and the “mayor”. The two have been together for 9 years and apparently are “The Crew” of the Turks and Caicos Islands. Both are obviously knowledgeable but also extremely personable.
I let them know I wanted to catch a Marlin so the Capt simply sd, “Let’s go get it”…and we did!! My heart jumped higher than the Blue Marlin when I saw it come out of the water. It took myself, the mayor and the captain almost an hour to bring in my 250lb Blue Marlin. I also caught Mahi Mahi and Wahoo as did my husband.
It was truly an exciting fishing trip and definitely worth the money.
The next day we were snorkeling and still talking about it. Our driver overheard us and asked if we were the ones on The Gwedolyn? He told us what we’d caught and everything, apparently it was all over the island.
However the very best part is the captain filleted it for us immediately. We walked right next door where they grilled the Wahoo and blackened the Mahi Mahi..best meal, best day. EVERRRRR
