About this Event

The Bimini Native Fishing Tournament is one of the oldest fishing tournaments in existence. This is a major attraction to visitors during the month of August. The first day of fishing always starts on the first Monday of August, which is widely celebrated through the Bahamas as August Monday.

This Tournament week is truly an island-wide festival, Bimini's claim to fame in the fishing world and an opportunity for all natives and non-natives to share a common bond in a very special and native type atmosphere. Each sign-up is offered a package of six cocktail parties, a beach party, dinner, Junkanoo parade as well as an exciting Awards Presentation. 

Admission Fee (if any)

The fee is $80.00 per participant and is truly a bargain due to the extensive range of entertainment offered to all the sign-ups.

Accessibility Notes: It would not be easy for those with disabilities to partake due to boating and dock safety restrictions.

 Pet Friendly Notes
No pets are allowed.
