9 – 12 November 2017

The annual Port Douglas Marlin Challenge is held during the first weeks of November each year.

Anglers from all over Australia and the world come to Port Douglas to undertake the challenge of fishing for one of the ocean’s greatest prizes, the Marlin. The Marlin Coast hosts some of the best Marlin fishing in the world, game boats and crews arrive in Port Douglas to team up with the anglers, all with the anticipation of being the one to catch the 1,000lb fish.

The 2017 tournament is scheduled for four consecutive days of fishing from 9 November to 12 November 2017.
