Beginning with just three boats and some recreational fishermen, the Big Game Battle tournament has now been a highlight for Nantucket summers for twenty years. Over 50 boats now participate in this invitational tournament and has raised over $1 Million. This event would not be possible if not for the participants and sponsors who continue to support the Big Game Battle & our cause year after year.
This annual summer event is an offshore sport fishing tournament held on
the history-rich Island of Nantucket. Fishing is allowed East or South of the
Island for a wide variety of game fish from Bluefin, Yellowfin, Albacore, Mahi
Mahi, Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Big Eye and more. The Nantucket Boat
Basin is centrally located to fish these waters. The Island also boasts an
active nightlife. The hospitality of the Dock Master and Professional Crews
has been most accommodating since the inception of this event in 2002.
This is not a ‘money’ tournament. We do support the competition between the boats and crews. However, our most important goal is to have a fun weekend with friends and return home with memorable stories.
