31st Annual Presidential Sailfish Tournament

From Friday, January 22, 2021 to Sunday, January 24, 2021 January 22, 2021 January 24, 2021 Cheeca Lodge & Spa

Competitive sport fishermen from across the country will gather at Cheeca Lodge & Spa for two days of intense sailfishing action during the 31st annual Presidential Sailfish Tournament, January 22 – 24, 2021.

This year, the Presidential is the second leg of the prestigious Florida Keys Gold Cup Sailfish Championship. By entering the Florida Keys Gold Cup, you are supporting the Islamorada Charter Boat Association, a 501-C-3 organization that works hard to keep our fishery here for future generations. 

January is peak sail fishing season. In keeping with Cheeca’s mission to conserve and protect valuable Keys resources, all sailfish caught during this tournament are released to fight another day. Only circle hooks can be used.

Entry fee is $675 for the first angler; additional anglers are $600, with up to four anglers per boat. After January 8, 2021 the entry fee for the first angler goes up to $775, and each additional angler is $700.

We look forward to seeing you for some exhilarating sailfish action!
