This June, Guy Harvey Outpost brings its signature Bonfire Tournament Series back to Old Bahama Bay for the summertime marlin and dolphin fishing action. Each Bonfire event is a multi-day celebration featuring art shows, cooking competition and extreme sport demonstrations with nightly beach bonfires of monument sized metal fish sculptures by artist Bobby Little. Guy Harvey Outpost Resorts, with properties in Florida and the Caribbean, offers customers carefully selected top-of-class fishing and dive Expedition Outfitters, who deliver a great experience and actively support Guy Harvey’s conservation initiatives.

The Guy Harvey Outposts’ “GHOFish” program promotes scientific angling expedition, sportfishing charters and tournaments.
