Re: 2017 Tournament Sponsors

We would like to welcome back Salt Life Optics as a returning Platinum Sponsor. Salt Life Optics is a company with salt in their veins and a serious passion for the ocean, and for this year's tournament they provided a variety of their high-end sunglasses for the prize table. Manufactured in Italy with Swiss materials, their Zeiss lenses have an anti-reflective coating that eliminates glare and repels water. This allows colors to appear vibrant and natural with extreme clarity and zero distortion. Their lenses are also polarized and offer 100% UV protection from harmful rays while out on the boat spearfishing!

Re: 2017 Tournament Sponsors

Despite what our egos may tell us, we aren't the top predators in the ocean so we'd like to thank Shark Shield - For Professional Adventurers for their annual sponsorship of the Tampa Bay Spearfishing Challenge. Shark Shield is the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent so if you want to win one for yourself then you'll have a chance at this year's tournament.

Re: 2017 Tournament Sponsors

In the Tampa Bay Spearfishing Club we love a healthy rivalry so we would like to thank our neighboring club, the Suncoast Underwater Club (SUCs) for their continued support. All the trash talking aside, the SUCs run a great annual tournament, the Suncoast Spearfishing Challenge, and have always supported our tournament through participation and tournament entries for our prize table. Thanks again gents!
