Deep Water Cay Family – Hurricane Relief Effort

Deep Water Cay Family – Hurricane Relief Effort

Deep Water Cay and East End Grand Bahama Island were directly under the stalled and destructive Hurricane Dorian for many hours. We are working with our team to get eyes on the condition of our beloved Cay. It has surely suffered great damage.

More importantly, we are still attempting to reach all of our DWC family. Thankfully, we have been in contact with our department heads, but communication is spotty and difficult. The team is still working to reach all DWC staff. One thing we are sure of is that they and their families will need all the help possible to put their lives back together. We are asking for your help on their behalf.

We have received many kind words, requests for news, and offers to help. We have set up this GoFundMe page to accept donations for our DWC staff and their families to offer the help they so desperately need now and in the coming weeks and months.

Deep Water Cay and its staff have been hosting anglers for over 60 years. Generations of staff have helped make Deep Water Cay the wonderful place it has been and will one day be again. For now, we are asking you to help these DWC families while they begin to rebuild their lives and homes. This will be a long road.

We know the families will be grateful for your generosity. We will direct all funds to assist in meeting the needs of the staff and their families. We will share updates as we get them – here and on social media.

Thank you for your support and generosity.
