Partnerships:
We are proud to announce that this year's tournament is the 2nd of the Super-Series of Spearfishing events which is creating a ton of excitement this season. The Super-Series is an accumulation of points earned by competitors which promotes "high-ticket" prizes for our elite at the end of the year. It's a high-profile series which promotes our sport by creating more prizes, sponsorships, and camaraderie.

We are also thrilled to announce our partnership with Metropolitan Ministries (MM), Florida's largest not-for-profit. MM is tasked with feeding nearly 2,500 people per day. Now that's a lot of protein? MM representatives will be at the Weigh-in line and we're hoping that our kind-hearted spearos will donate some of their fish to feed the homeless and families in need. So tear it up for some great prizes and a worthy cause!‚Äč
