In the past 28 years the Ocean City Tuna Tournament has become the world’s largest tuna tournament with a payout of over $630,000 in 2015. Boats of all sizes from up and down the East Coast have traveled to Ocean City, Maryland to not only fish in our vast ocean, but to also compete for big money in this first-class event.
The three day event is full of anticipation, excitement and fun for all. While thousands of spectators wait for the scales to open, they can enjoy a cold beverage or grab a bite to eat at the dock bar and browse through the vendor area where many exhibitors selling everything from boats to art to tackle and jewelry showcase their products. Once the scales have closed, participants and sponsors relax and swap fishing tales while enjoying nightly entertainment and gourmet dinners served under our enormous tent.
