Prior to owning his own business Captain Jon had many years experience working in the Cayman waters on various boats doing various tours for guests. He has countless years experience in deep sea fishing as fishing has been his passion since a very young age and this passion shines through when he hosts his guests as this is normally the first comment that we receive as feedback in our reviews.
He is a proud Caymanian that has a love for his Island and enjoys showing his guests all that the Grand Cayman waters have to offer, whether it is deep sea fishing, reef fishing, snorkeling, swimming with the stingrays or stopping off at starfish point. He will do whatever it takes and will go that extra mile to ensure that his guests have the most pleasant and memorable private charter experience possible.

He has over 20 years experience in sport fishing and comes from a family of captains, master mariners and Olympic sailors. He has been on the water all of his life from the shores of Vancouver Canada, Florida and all over the Caribbean Islands.
Jonathan is a born and raised Caymanian and has been close friends with Captain Jon for over 25 years. Sport Fishing has been a large part of his life since a very young age and has a deep passion for his island and loves showing and explaining to our guests all that the Cayman Islands have to offer.
FIRST MATE PERI
First Mate Peri was born and raised in the Cayman Islands and is very new to Slackem Charters as well as to sport fishing. Peri came to us just over a year ago with no prior deep sea fishing experience and he had never worked on a fishing charter boat and was extremely shy.
Deep sea fishing has been a learning process for him but over the last several months he has advanced his knowledge from Captain Jon and our crew taking time with him and has become an excellent first mate. Peri is now diverse among our boats and has a great attitude towards learning everything there is to know about deep sea fishing and how to show our guests the best possible experience.
