In another major destination promotion, the Cayman Islands is getting top billing in a new American outdoors TV series.
The territory is featured in “Let’s Take it Outside”, a new adventures program highlighting and celebrating women in outdoor activities.
The show which will be syndicated on Fox Sports is hosted by the first-ever female host of an outdoors show.
Misty Wells, a Clearwater native, born & raised in Pinellas County is breaking what is considered the “outdoor camo ceiling”.
Females in the Outdoors is a 16-billion-dollar industry.
“It’s about time the Outdoors Industry starts to recognize how important Women are to it,” says Misty.
She credits Fox Sports and their vision for what she calls “Women’s Turn to be showcased in the outdoors”.
The Cayman Islands episodes feature Misty participating in Pirate Week - jumping aboard a boat with her Pirate Crew, Bloody Bay Buccaneers, invading George Town and going with the flow in the Parade.

She is also promoting the Cayman Islands International Fishing Tournament starting April 30th – May 3rd, 2020.
Misty will be coming back to film and fish in the tournament and is s hoping to take home more than footage. She’ll actually be fishing for a trophy.
“None of this would be possible if not for the hard work of Franklin Thompson, President of the Cayman Islands Angling Club,” she says.
“Frank made all of this possible with the help of many local businesses and local folks that love the Cayman Islands.”
“Let’s Take it Outside” video series and now TV series features both of her children in various episodes.
