THE PRESIDENTIAL CARIBBEAN CUP COMES TO ARUBA

The island nation of Aruba has become one of the most sought-after vacation destinations in the world, and now its also become one of the hottest fishing venues in the entire Caribbean. Once again for 2016, the Presidential Caribbean Cup will call this island nation home, as it hosts the seventh annual international billfishing competition. The event is scheduled for October 20-23, 2016, which will coincide perfectly with the height of the marlin season. The opportunities for blue marlin are especially good, with enough white marlin and sailfish to offer an excellent opportunity at a coveted "Grand Slam" of all three billfish species in one day.

Aruba enjoys a sunny climate and offers a stable government, safe, family-friendly environment, good year-round weather out of the hurricane belt and convenient air service, in addition to magnificent beaches, world-class SCUBA diving and fantastic billfishing.

For more information on this upcoming event, please email tournament coordinator Joan Vernon at
