International Ernest Hemingway
Needlefish Tournament

This is a fishing tournament held off the coast from Havana, for the big needlefish species such as wahoo, marlin, and tuna whose natural habitat is in these nutrient rich waters. Catching these fish was one of Ernest Hemmingway’s most passionate pastimes.

It can be said that loved to fish as much as he loved to drink, and it was he himself that established the event in 1950 and hosted it for a decade until his unhappy exit from Cuba. The festival has its headquarters at the Hemmingway Marina, and attracts hordes of fisher people from many different countries.
