Big Lex is da man!!! We just came back from the Cayman’s, 1 day ago to be exact, and we keep saying what an amazing time we had with Big Lex and Harlen. We went with 4 children, ages 7-11, and 4 adults. We fished, went to stingray alley, and snorkeled starfish point. Big Lex and Harlen took pics of our family and kids all during our time and gave us the SIM card at the end of the trip which was absolutely amazing. The rum punches were fantastic, the company was phenomenal, never felt unsafe, and it was ALL AROUND FUN! We will be back, Big Lex!

Wow, what a fantastic experience! Before I left for a long Memorial Day weekend, I challenged myself along with some friends and family to do something that we have never done before. I chose snorkeling and to swim with stingrays. My girlfriend and I booked a half-day snorkeling trip with BigLex Charters, and as the tagline says, "it's like boating with your best friend." The boat is clean, comfortable, and well stocked with snacks, water, and adult beverages. Our first stop was Stingray City. Of course, when you mention stingrays, we all think about what happened to Steve Irwin and could that happen to me. I'm sure Capt. Lex. has been asked dozens of times about the risks and safety concerns, to which he provided information about how docile the stingrays are, and explained how they have become accustomed to human interaction. I was quite impressed to see Lex dive under water to bring up one of the rays for us to view and touch, though I will admit, it is intimidating to enter the water and have a half-dozen stingrays of various sizes gliding past you. Yikes! After that, we headed to snorkel off of Rum Point. Having never snorkeled before, Capt. Lex was informative and gave guidance. We anchored in about 20 feet of water and put on our fins and masks and in we went. The water was beautiful and crystal clear. There were so many different species of fish, and the reef was breathtaking. We finished up the trip at Rum Point, where to my surprise it was Sunday Funday, where the locals gather by boat to hang out, party and drink Mudslides. In closing, the experience was incredible, and I credit a big part of that to how comfortable and accommodating Capt. Lex made us feel, right from the start. Book a fishing or snorkeling trip with BigLex Charters, you won't regret it.

The friendliest family fun you will have at the island. If you want to treat yourself to a day on the most beautiful place in the world, this is it! Friendly, knowledgeable staff guide you through any points on the island you wish to experience. Right down to the handling of stingrays and starfish to enjoying the local rum. Oh did I say rum...if you’d like a beverage along the way...name it, Lex has it. Your child wants an Oreo, he has that too. In other words, best day in cayman bar none!!! My family and I fell in love with the day and the staff...and my seven year old daughter is picky 😂

Lex & Harland make Big Lex Charters one of a kind. I wanted to go fishing on my Caymans trip, but was a bit intimidated to go alone. These guys could not have made it an easier or more fun afternoon. Just as they say, it's just like fishing with your best friend. These guys can make ANYONE at ease. They take care of it all for you & want to make sure you're having an amazing time. The boat is gorgeous & super clean & comfortable, and very well stocked with anything you could imagine. I'd forgotten extra sunscreen & yup, they had it. I wasn't a big drinker (though it was tempting to be, given all the options they had!) but had plenty of non-alcoholic options too... including fresh coconuts from Lex's own trees. Not kidding folks. The weather wasn't great, making the fishing a little tough, but these 2 did EVERYTHING they possibly could to make the afternoon a blast anyway. And trust me, they did :) At one point Lex was snorkeling to unsnag a caught line & discovered a conch shell with a baby octopus inside that he brought up to show us. Yes I'm a bit weird, but this was one of the cooler things about my week-long trip to the Caymans -- getting to see a 2" octopus up close & personal. Point is, these guys are wonderful at what they do, and it's clear that they actually enjoy being out on the water, it's not just a job for them, and it shows. I am super happy to have picked Lex's charter instead of one of the huge companies with hundreds of reviews -- these guys are unique & a blast! Don't think twice about picking these guys!

Hi Amanda. Thanks so much for the wonderful review. I'm really happy you enjoyed the trip and took the time to write us this glowing review and recommendation. Harlon and I very much appreciate it and we can't thank you enough for choosing us. Whenever you're back to Cayman, please look me up. I'd love to take you out in calmer waters outside of the reef and fish for the big ones! Thanks again Amanda! Capt. Lex

Big Lex fishing charters gave us the most incredible memories that will last a lifetime. From the amazing fishing, beautiful boat, and stingrays to starfish it was by far one of the best days of my life! Lex is Passionate about fishing, is extremely knowledgeable and takes safety very seriously. Having fun also takes first place aboard! Thank you so very much Lex and crew for taking such good care of us! I can’t wait to go out with you again on the big blue ! Danielle
