Come join us in the sport of kings, deep sea fishing! Turks and Caicos offers amazing deep sea fishing opportunities year-round. Hook wahoo, tuna, marlin, and even barracuda!
Grand Slam Fishing Charters has been in business for over 20 years. We have a track record of delivering amazing, epic fishing charter experiences for our clients. We also place a premium on the strictest safety protocols.
Grand Slam Fishing Charters currently has a three-vessel fleet:
- Angler Management – This 48-foot Ocean Super Sport Express Deep Sea fishing ship is big enough for the largest hauls!
- Wahooters – a 43-foot Bertram Open Express allows you to enjoy air-conditioned comfort while at the helm!
- Shady Grady – Perfect for smaller groups, this 31-foot Grady White Bimini 306 is perfect for reef or bottom fishing.
Some fishing charter companies try to make do with smaller 15-foot vessels to save money and fuel.
But their little ships can’t safely handle rough waters. With our fleet, you’ll have a fun, exciting adventure, and you’ll be comfortable and safe the entire time.

MEET OUR TEAM:
Captain Brad Roy
Originally from Windsor, Ontario, Brad started his mechanical journey at a young age in the military as mechanic. Then returning to Windsor he became a Tool and Die maker. Unhappy with indoor work, Brad then graduated to heavy-duty tow truck towing, which only added to his strong dislike of cold winters.
After he got married, he moved down to Turks and Caicos to enjoy the warm weather and beautiful scenery. He quickly fell in love with fishing in the area and has been here for nearly 10 years. As a licensed Captain and Scuba Instructor, Brad is extremely knowledgeable about:
- Fishing & Fishing Equipment
- Diesel engines
- And much more
He knows where the best “hiding spots” are in these waters, and has plenty of tricks to help you catch the elusive big fish like Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna.
When he’s not out on the water, he operates a fishing supply business.
Born in Bahamas and raised in Turks and Caicos Islands, Capt. Joseph is only 24 years old. He may be young, but we call him “Fish Whisper” becaus of his almost “psychic” ability to find the fest fishing spots. Joseph loves to find fish, fish, then to clean the fish. He simply dreams about fish. And when he is relaxing, he likes to sit back with a cold one and tell stories about fish. Joseph has been fishing these waters since he was a young boy, learning his craft from other island experts, and has earned the respect of the “old guys” as one of the best fishermen around. He’s on the water more than he’s on land! When Joseph is not fishing, he is thinking about fishing , where they might be and telling fish stories. I think he dreams about fishing too. For Joseph it is ALL about the FISH !
Jerverno “Joe” Lightbourne
Jeverno Lightbourne, also known as “Joe” was born in Miami back in 1983, his parents came from the Big South (South Caicos Island) . He soon returned to Grand Turk where he was raised by his aunt and uncle. He relocated to the USA at the age of 4 but returned to the Turks and Caicos Islands for the summers to learn fishing skills from Uncle Dutch, who introduced him to the fishing life at the age of 7. Joe permanently returned to the Islands in 2013 and found his calling in fishing when he worked for another Uncle. He learned how to put smiles on the faces of his guests and the history of the islands. He made the move to Grand Slam after his Uncle sold his business. On his free time he loves spending time with his daughter, son and step son and his wife.
Runeko “Neko” Durham
Runeko also known as Neko was born and raised in the Capital, Grand Turk. The newest member to the team and also the funniest. He knows how to keep you entertained and he’ll keep your drinks flowing. Most of all he is like fish bait, always attracting the fish.
He is eager to show you a good time aboard Angler Management or Wahooters. He is very amusing and has endless comedic lines to keep you laughing. He knows how to keep you entertained.
During his free time, he enjoys skating and playing basketball.
The lifeblood of our entire operation, Bridge will be the one greeting you when you call the office. Bridgette will also be waiting for you in our office when you arrive.
She will prepare the paperwork and guide you to the boats. She is happy to answer any questions you may have before your arrival. She also has a secret “superpower:” She knows all the great spots to go to on Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands!
Bridgette is also no stranger to the seas. She’s spent much of her younger days boating with her family, so she can assist by explaining many things to you if you like.
Joseph “Allen Ray” Smith
Allen Ray is a wealth of knowledge with well over 30 years’ experience running charter boats he knows every beach and reef in the country. His gentle demeanor and likable smile will make you feel welcome. And he’s an avid storyteller! He will entertain you with stories about his adventures in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Born on North Caicos, Allen Ray moved to Provo for work as a young man, but still calls North home.
His specialty is teaching young people the best ways to fish on the reef. Request him if your fishing charter is part of a family vacation. Allen Ray is also an incredible cook, so feel free to ask his culinary advice!
Gervego “Warvy” Delancy
Warvy is Captain of our newest ship, Wahooters. He has been on the water his entire life and knows the waters and where the fish hide. This gives you the edge on getting a good haul if Warvy is your Captain!
He enjoys helping guests “get on the hook,” which is fishing terms for catching fish! He catches Marlin and Tuna all the time and has a “sixth sense” of their behaviors and habits.
After a great catch Warvy would indulge in a game of dominoes just to wind down from a day out on the waves.
Jeffery or should I say Jefe was born and raised in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands.
He always had a passion to become a captain, to be on the water but never had the knowledge to do so. He worked in a restaurant. After a short period of time, he resigned to pursue his passion to the fish.
He soon joined the Grand Slam Charter family based on our excellent reputation. He has been with the company for almost 2 years now. He recently completed the DECR (Department of the Environment and Coastal Resources) testing and safety courses. Jeffery is also our maintenance man in training.
He continues to show a keen interest in how things work and how to make everything he comes in contact with. He is on his journey to becoming a captain.
Pieter was born in Hamilton, Ontario as the grandson of an ocean captain in the Netherlands. Saltwater is in his blood!
Because he didn’t live close to water, he took up farming as an adult. Since he filled his leisure time by being on the water as much as possible, he decided to take his passion further. He passed the Canadian Power Squadron course and obtained his Boating License.
Upon retirement, Pieter purchased Grand Slam Charters to stay busy. He loves being on the water and occasionally tags along to serve as an extra mate on the charters. He divides his time between Canada and the Turks and Caicos Islands. He loves the waters of Turks and Caicos so much he wants everyone to be able to enjoy and experience the waters. Fishing is the best way to do it.
Dutch thriftiness and cleanliness are in his blood, so he runs a tight ship. His primary goal is making sure the boats are tidy and the crew punctual. You and your group will get the most time on the sea and be well fed, too!
