For Sale: Legendary Deep Water Cay Fishing Resort in the Bahamas

September 30, 2016 | By | Comments (8)

Your dreams of owning a private island have gone one incredible step beyond even that fantasy: Now, you can own a private island that comes with its own world-famous boutique resort. Deep Water Cay, the Bahamas’ renowned sport fishing destination, has gone on the market, and you can buy it!

Deep Water Cay resort, Bahamas

For more than 50 years—the resort was founded as a private fishing club by angler legends Gil Drake Sr. and A.J. McLane in 1958—Deep Water Cay has been the sport fishing destination for celebrities (Liam Neeson and Tom Brokaw, among many others) and fishing enthusiasts alike. Today, the whole 91-acre island, with its intimate luxury hotel trappings, can be purchased for an unnamed (but presumably hefty) price.

The island has more than opportunities to catch bonefish (like this wily creature, shown here), though. It’s also a stunning natural escape on the east end of Grand Bahama.


Deep Water Cay has 2.5 miles of soft sand beaches surrounded by the warm, cerulean water of the Caribbean. Only 120 miles from Palm Beach, it’s easily accessed by private yacht, charter plane, and boat from South Florida.


Said to have some of the best sport fishing in the world, Deep Water Cay also has amazing snorkeling and paddleboarding opportunities, an infinity pool, and other opulent resort amenities.


With the purchase comes the opportunity to build bungalows and residences on the island. And the area’s ecosystem is on the way to being eternally preserved: A proposed 188-square-mile Grand Bahama National Park surrounds the island.


This amazing shot at owning a true piece of paradise comes from Colliers International Hotels Group. You can read the full press release here.
