Love to dive and spearfish? Spearfishing Barbados does, too!

Spearfishing Barbados organizes unforgettable breath hold spearfishing tours around the island. They understand what their divers want: simplicity, quality gear and some fresh fish. Love the sound of that? Oh yes, you do!

Whether you want to explore the underwater treasures of the picturesque west coast’s reefs and wrecks, or dive the jagged formations and abundant ledges of the east coast, Alex and his team will cater for your needs. All trips start and end from Barbados’ sandy shorelines. It doesn’t get much better than this for adding adventure to your vacation.

Before the dive, you will meet with your expert guide for a pre-dive briefing. Even if you haven’t dived before, you will learn everything you need to know about how to hold your breath as you dive the reefs and underwater features of Barbados. You’ll also be given an overview of different spearfishing techniques so you’re ready to go right away. The only requirement is that you know how to swim!

Your underwater adventure will take you to target the local underwater predators, such as Snappers, Barracuda, and Jacks. You will also have the chance to spot and capture the beautiful but devastatingly invasive Lionfish, a predator that is causing havoc on the local reef system. This fish is better off on a plate than in the reef!

Spearfishing Barbados also offers diving courses and can arrange deep sea charters for experienced spearos. Feel free to contact them to find out more.

Everything you need to hunt down some tasty dinner will be provided, including spear guns, masks/snorkels, fins, gloves, floats, weights, knives, safety gear and much more.

So bring a towel, swimming costume or wetsuit, and sunscreen, and everything else will be waiting for you. Get ready for a day you’ll never forget!
