Join us for the 2018 Big Game Battle Nantucket Island

August 9 – 11, 2018


It is our 17th year anniversary! Who would have guessed that after starting with 3 boats we now have over 50 boats and we continue to grow. We especially want to thank our participants and sponsors who really make this event happen. As we grew bigger we thought it was a great way to give back. We have previously supported many charities at The Big Game Battle including: The Dana-Farber Cancer Research Institute and The Jimmy Fund to support Leukemia Research and Patient Care, Juvenile Diabetes, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, The Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester, The Nantucket S.T.A.R. Program, ALS, Camp Harbor View, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, and The International Rett Syndrome Foundation. This year we will be supporting Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program, dedicated to healing the Invisible Wounds for Veterans, Service Members and their Families.

This summertime event is an offshore sport fishing tournament held on the history rich Island of Nantucket. We will fish East or South of the Island for a wide variety of game fish from Bluefin, Yellowfin, Albacore, Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Big Eye and more. The Nantucket Boat Basin is centrally located to fish these waters. The Island also boasts an active night life. The hospitality of the Dock Master and Professional Crews has been most accommodating since the inception of this event in 2002. This is not a “money” tournament. We do support the competition between the boats and crews. However, our most important goal is to have a fun weekend away with friends and come home with many memorable stories.
