One of the highlights of the Los Cabos events calendar every year is the Tuna Jackpot Tournament. From November 6-10, the Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot takes over the marina and hits the Sea of Cortez. This legendary Cabo San Lucas event brings in multiple tunas weighing over 200 and 300 pounds and puts them on display for all to see. This year, the Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot is celebrating its 20th year, so visitors and participants will be sure to feel the festivity in the air during the five day Cabo San Lucas event. With parties, prizes, and friendly competition, this is definitely one of the fun events to check out or even to sign up for when you visit Cabo.
The actual two-days of competition begin on November 8 when the shotgun goes off as the boats zoom out to the open waters in search of the largest tuna. While the largest prize goes to the biggest fish, there are multiple ways teams can win, from a best dressed contest to special drawings with awards from sponsors. Cash prizes are also available in optional jackpots that teams can enter. With all the chances to win in the Tuna Jackpot Tournament, there are thousands of reasons to enter one of the most exciting sport events in Los Cabos.
