For the past 60 years, the Puerto Vallarta International Sailfish and Marlin Tournament (Torneo Internacional Puerto Vallarta de Pez Vela y Marlin) has upheld a powerful presence among sport fishing tournaments. Year after year, some of the most prestigious fishermen from all over the world have come to fish the waters of Banderas Bay and compete for big trophies, great prizes and bragging rights.

Registration fees are $34,000 pesos per boat with a team of up to 4 fishermen.
