Miami Dolphins Fins Weekend

May 19th and 20th, 2017-Rickenbacker Marina

In its 21st year, the Miami Dolphins Fins Weekend Fishing Tournament must be in our top 5 of best events.  Kick starting the weekend is their legendary Captains meeting, which surpasses any we have ever attended!  Follow by their fun-fishing on Saturday.


The one day, off-shore tournament features fishing for dolphin (not the kind in uniform), wahoo, kingfish and tuna.  Miami Dolphins players, coaches and alumni participate in the prestigious sport fishing event of the year.  Fishing for unique prizes that are awarded for the largest fish in each category and for the greatest combined weight of eligible fish per boat.


Jump starting the dolphin season (Florida Mahi-Mahi) what a great way to start with our “Miami Dolphins”.  With a new venue this year at Miami Marine Stadium I am convinced it will continue to rank amongst “the best of the best”!


Packages/Entries start at $1,750 per boat.  100% of the proceeds of the event go to the Miami Dolphins Foundation.  For more information on the event visit Miami Dolphins Fins Weekend.
