Cozumel Fishing Tournament
The beautiful tropical island of Cozumel lies about 7 miles off the southeastern coast of Mexico and offers multiple water sport activities for locals and tourists alike who travel from all over the world to enjoy consistently warm air temperatures as well as the equally warm, crystal clear water of the Caribbean Sea.
Since Jacques Cousteau and his crew filmed a documentary in Cozumel in 1961, the island has been a top destination for water sport enthusiasts from around the world who travel to the island to enjoy activities that include scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing along the Mesoamerican reef, one of the largest barrier reef systems in the world, second only to the Great Barrier Reef that meanders for about 1400 miles along the coast of Australia. The Mesoamerican reef system stretches 175 miles along the ocean between Honduras and the Gulf of Mexico and offers one of the best scuba diving and snorkeling adventures in the world.
The reef is known for twisting caves, tunnels and underwater caverns that provide scuba divers and snorkelers with a colorful display of 26 types of coral formations and the adventure of mingling with hundreds of species and subspecies of fish who call the reef home. The Mesoamerican reef provides an ideal habitat for a plethora of marine life, many of which aren’t found anywhere else in the world, that include colorful sea sponges, sea turtles, dolphins, manatees, tropical fish like blue and white marlin, sailfish, grouper, wahoo, snapper, barracuda, dorado (mahi-mahi), mackerel, amberjack, blackfin tuna and bill fish (which are typically caught and released to conserve the species).
The reef also attracts fishermen from all over the world who visit the island to take part in some of the best fishing available and multiple popular fishing tournaments that the island is famous for hosting.
One of the most popular events is the Cozumel Fishing Tournament that is held annually and attracts people from all over who are looking for a great fish story.
