The 9th International Marlin and Tuna Tournament will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2015 in Banderas Bay, organized by the Banderas Bay Fishing Club and sponsored by Paradise Village Nuevo Vallarta. The Groups and Events department of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is also backing this event.

Between 35 and 40 boats are expected to sail in from Mexico, the United States and Canada, all of them seeking the prizes for the three top spots in the four categories in which they will compete: Marlin, Tuna, Sailfish and Mahi-Mahi. The winners will take home a new car, a 15HP motor and purses totaling 25 thousand and 40 thousand Mexican pesos.

Registration opens Friday, July 24, 2015 at the Paradise Village Yacht Club from 5:00 to 10:00 pm. The competition begins at dawn the following day at 4:00 am; fish will be accepted at 1:00 to 6:00 pm.

The Awards Ceremony will take place at 8:30 pm in the host hotel’s Amphitheater.  

In order to incentivize an even bigger catch, the first competitors that present specimens that surpass the current records for Marlin (322.300 Kg), Tuna (176 Kg) and Sailfish (70.600 Kg) will take home a 15 thousand peso prize.

Registration cost is 7 thousand pesos and boats need four people on board. For more information visit the Pesca En Badeba Facebook page, the @PescaEnBadeba Twitter feed, the Fishing Nayarit website or call (322) 225-5467.
