Online PR News – 02-July-2009 – – KEY WEST, FL - In keeping with the spirit of the annual Key West Marlin Tournament, acclaimed tour operator Best On Key West is offering tourists a chance to hone their angling skills by participating in the several Key West fishing excursions and tours organized by the agent.
The annual Key West Marlin Tournament is held in memory of angler and writer extraordinaire Ernest Hemingway. The tournament coincides with the annual Hemingway Days celebrations held in Key West to pay tribute to the author. All participants are required to register for the event, which is to take place Wednesday, July 22 through Saturday, July 25. The prize for the winner of the tournament is almost as legendary as the tournament itself, with the cash purse holding more than $50,000, and the first place winner being rewarded with $25,000.
"The Marlin Tournament is a unique time to visit Key West and even the most inexperienced fisherman wants to register a boat and give it a shot. Our fishing excursions are the perfect opportunity for visitors and locals alike to practice their angling skills," says Chris Gardner of Best On Key West.
Tour operator Best On Key West is well known for its Key West diving and snorkeling tours, but they are now offering Key West fishing tours and excursions as well. Tourists in town to watch the Marlin Tournament can take advantage of these tours to learn the ropes and enjoy fishing first hand. Fishing excursions offered range from offshore fishing, flats fishing, light tackle and party boat fishing. Tours can be four, six or eight hours in duration, depending on the participants' preference.
"For many fishermen, half the fishing experience is about the boat and its captain. This is why no matter what type of fishing you are interested in, we have several boats for you to choose from with experienced captains taking you to the right fishing spots. Since there are so many exciting fishing opportunities available, our guides can help you choose exactly which boat will suit your needs," says Gardner.
The annual event attracts many visitors to Key West, making it an especially busy period for the town. Best On Key West recommends that tourists book accommodations in advance, as last minute lodging may be hard to find.
