Tournament Information

Welcome to our 5th Annual Florida Keys Open Spearfishing Tournament.

We want to thank all of the participant of the 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 tournaments and raffle ticket buyers that helped us generate $10,000 for the American Cancer Society.  Our sponsors were tremendous and helped us a great deal in reaching that goal as well. 

We were able to take a few pictures of last three spearfishing tournaments.  Just click on the link on the Welcome page for the pictures and/or sponsors of our past two tournaments.

Our 2013 tournament schedule is listed to the right, so please make yourself available for a good time.

Most importantly, we need you to make this tournament successful.  The more shooters we have at the tournament, the more we can do for the fight against cancer.

Good Luck,

Nathan Marz
