Shark TournamentGet your reservation in early, because Star Island Yacht Club & Marina’s 25th Annual Mako, Thresher and Tuna Tournament is guaranteed to be our best one yet.  We have expanded the tournament beyond sharks to include any species of tuna, including Blue Fin.  As part of this expansion, we have also increased the number of prize categories and raised the total prize amount to $15,000.  

Also for 2017, you may now fish overnight. We often heard from participants in the past that they would have liked to stay out overnight, in the event they didn’t have fish to weigh in for the first day, or if they weighed in earlier and wanted to get a headstart on Day Two. You can now do this; however, you can only weigh in one shark per day. Provided that National Marine Fisheries regulations are followed, you may weigh in more than one tuna per day and may weigh in tuna multiple times per day.

We have also made a number of improvements around Star Island to better accommodate our guests and tournament participants. We are pleased to announce that we now have high-speed fuel pumps available at all of our slips.  In another change, the Star Island Grill welcomes our new chef, Tom.  When you are here, you will have to check out its updated and expanded menu.
