This annual event is comprised of two different main spectacles: the International Cozumel Fishing Tournament and the Mexican Boat Rodeo. Anyone may enter the first event but the second is only available to boats registered in Mexico. Competitors search for the best examples of blue marlin, white marlin, tuna, barracuda and wahoo fish which are plentiful game fish around the island.  The tournament is a welcome opportunity for sports fisherman from all over the world to experience the crystalline vibrant waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
