Built in 2003 to attract visiting boaters to Charleston, The MegaDock has become Billfishing’s grandest arena offering convenient dockage, in-slip fueling, professionally trained dock staff, and much more.

Participants may fish two out of three days between Thursday, July 11 and Saturday, July 13. Each evening, family, friends, and crew are invited to enjoy dinner and drinks in the Rice Mill served by Bennett Hospitality's acclaimed restaurants such as Rue de Jean, Coast, Virginia's on King, and Good Food Catering. Sponsors such as Jarrett Bay, Blanchard CAT, and the City Boatyard are on hand each day of the tournament to show off the latest trends in the sport fishing world and answer any product questions participants may have.

Prizes for top billfish release points, heaviest meat fish, youth anglers, and lady anglers are presented at Saturday night's awards dinner. Not only do participants win big, but the local waterfront community benefits from the tournament as well. Since its inception, the event has donated over $185,000 to local and national, water related charities. Contributions are made to organizations that make our waterfront community stronger, such as the Coastal Conservation Association, the Harry Hampton Memorial Wildlife Fund, and Water Missions International. One group benefiting from the tournament, Dragon Boat Charleston, supports cancer-survivors through dragon boating.

The Bennett Hospitality MEGADOCK Billfishing Tournament is unique in that all participating vessels are required to fish from the Charleston City Marina. Everyone that is participating is together, on one dock, for four full days of fun. This arrangement establishes a sense of community between all participants while adding to the lively atmosphere on the dock after each day on the water.

Tournament enthusiast that may not be able to get out on the water can follow the event through the live web camera on the tournament website. Updates of what is going on offshore are posted to the site throughout the day.

Whether you are on the frontline of the action or following from home, The Bennett Hospitality MEGADOCK Tournament promises excitement year after year.
