Some of the best and most thrilling offshore fishing on the planet is accessible from Ocean City, Maryland. Sharks, wahoo, mahi-mahi, yellowfin, bluefin, bigeye, blue marlin, and the perennially popular white marlin are just a few of the pelagic fish species that may be caught from a variety of charter boats berthed at some of the most gorgeous and accommodating marina facilities on the East Coast. It’s because of this that Ocean City Maryland is host to Tuna and Tiaras, the world's only ladies tuna tournament.

Their support is exemplified by donating a portion of all registration fees to their women’s organization “Women Supporting Women”.
