September is a great time to be in Jamaica, especially when it comes to fishing. We have a few ways to celebrate and enjoy the season, including local and national events.

MONTEGO BAY INTERNATIONAL MARLIN TOURNAMENT September 26–30, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day Montego Bay, Jamaica

Games is a live reality competition where contestants compete to be the ultimate Guardsman. An obstacle course inside the zoo takes competitors through monkey bar challenges, wall climbs, rope swings, and barbed wire. This two-day event begins on Saturday with finalists competing through Sunday. If you think you have what it takes, sign up and become the next Guardsman.

Every September, residents and thousands of out-of-town spectators get excited about one fish: the marlin. This is the 56th annual Marlin Tournament, and it is sure to be one of the best yet. Watch world-class anglers reel in the biggest catch. If you enjoy fishing, bring your pole and put a line in the beautiful bay. Even if you don’t, spectating is more than half the fun, and enjoying the catch of the day is a sure way to please the taste buds.

WORLD TOURISM DAY September 27, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. All across Jamaica

Tourism plays a huge role in the Jamaican economy, and we show our recognition of that during World Tourism Day. First celebrated in 1970 after the United Nations dedicated a World Tourism Organization, you can enjoy this holiday by taking part in the fun activities Jamaica has to offer. Look out for more local events as the day approaches.

GUARDSMAN GAMES September 2–3, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day Hope Zoo, Kingston, Jamaica
