“Grand Slam saved the day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had a trip scheduled with another fishing charter and they failed to show up. We were really disappointed and as we were leaving, we were told about Grand Slam. We walked up to Grand Slam's office and told Andrea what happened. She was incredibly helpful and got us booked on a charter for that afternoon. Capt. Codney and his mate were awesome- very helpful, easy to talk to and laughed a lot with us. We caught a mahi-mahi and three yellowfin tuna. We've been on charters where the crew yells and panics when two fish are on at the same time. Codney and his mate knew exactly how to handle it, frantic-free and were just as excited as we were! Highly recommend. Very professional.

“A Perfect Place for a family celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We were looking for somewhere that would tick the boxes for us all (Mum, Dad and 2 adventurous teenagers). The package we booked through gsfishing.com at Coral Gardens, Turks and Caicos certainly did just that! The suite we stayed in was ike having the Ocean and fabulous gardens in our living room! The accomodation offered was everything you would possibly want and more, much more! With the beautiful Grace Bay Beach (arghhh) close by what more could you need. However, we discovered there was more and enjoyed 2 brilliant boat trips organised by the very friendly staff at the Grand Slam Charters office.

The first trip we took was on Cuda - snorkelling will never be the same anywhere else! We also pulled up for some R&R on one of the many beaches.

Our second trip was on Wahoo, which we were told would be fast, exciting and great for fishing on the small reefs - it lived up to the promise. The fishing was brilliant and the scenery amazing.

We had 2 fantastic but different days - made even more exciting by the great crew!!

We are now planning our return trip and hope to do some big fish fishing next time - watch out!

“Nice boat, friendly staff & crew, wish we caught more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Grand slam had such great reviews, we had to give it a try. Overall, I think it was a bit pricey, but will concede that the 42' Wahoo was a great boat for any group. Andrea and Carmen were friendly and helpful.

Unfortunately, we did not catch enough to feed 4 adults for lunch. Plenty of bites and Carmen seemed to care and kept the moods up. I think the trip was a bit short for the money too, but as we had younger kids with us, I think interest waned to the point that all were ready to go.

Can't blame Grand Slam necessarily for not catching. If I had to do it over again, I would have done something else other than fishing (ie scuba) that day.

Tarheel thanks for your report , everyone loves our boat the "Wahooooo! " and we are particualr pleased to hear your praise of Our crew that is so important to us . Your report highlights to us the importance of discussing thoroughly our guests needs at the time of booking . A 4 hour trip can seem too little or too long depending upon how well we have built the trip around your needs . So often we are told " i just want a big fish " ( when in reality they dont ) I dont know the detail of your trip but it sounds as though a combination of trolling , bottom fishing and snorkelling would have been better maybe even pulling up on a island beach for the kids to burn off energy . However it sounds as though you had lots of bites but not landing them which also happens
For clarity
Trolling ( especially deep sea ) often involves long periods of inactivity interspersed with extreme excitement .
Bottom fishing involves the boat at anchor and usually a lot of action
. " Wahooooo! " "cuda " and " dos dorado" are all perfect for combining these plus snorkelling trips and beach parties .
Gwendolyn is suitable for offshore only .
As you can see we have superb boats and wonderful crew but it sounds like we failed on getting the mix right this time . Let us knw when you are next down and we will make it perfect for you .
Best wishes from all at Grand Slam charters

“Like Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We stopped in Provo for a few days before heading off to Grand Turk and my husband returned to Grand Slam for a day fishing. Andrea was pleasant as always and my husband had a blast on his fishing day even though they only caught one fish - a wahoo.
The people who work there are great to deal with and we always get service with a smile and a great big welcome hug. We highly recommend this company if you wish to go fishing on Provo.

“great time, great memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

My wife and I booked a deep sea fishing trip with Grand Slam and had a great time. The Gwendolyn was a fantastic ship and the captain(Codney and crew(Marvin and Mario) could not have treated us better. We are going back and I will be booking another trip with them.Andrea was very friendly and booked our trip,picked us up and drove us around due to a fuel pump problem at their normal dock. My wife caught a 50lb Wahoo, made her vacation...mine too. Very happy with the memories.
