The Billfish Tournament in the Caribbean is a world-famous annual big game fishing tournament. One hundred and fifty participants from around the world come on about 35 boats to try their hand at catching the finest blue marlin in the rich fishing grounds of Saint Martin. The record to beat on Marlin Boulevard (a fishing area well known to professional fishermen) is the 367-kilogramme marlin caught at the 2010 tournament!
Meanwhile, on the waterfront in Marigot, the village has put together Billfish entertainment and mini-concerts in the Marina for about 1,500 visitors every night. This is your chance to check out the local stalls, sample local food, visit the fish market, and enjoy the many activities during ‘fish days'.
