Spearfishing Today – Cozumel

Puerto De Abrigo
Cozumel QR, Mexico

If you have ever wanted a Hercules moment in the sun, then Spearfishing Today is the perfect charter trip for you. You will use your primal instincts to dive into the crystal waters and spear your own dinner! The guys at Spearfishing Today all live to spear, and spear to live. You will have a great spearfishing adventure with them.

Although the minimum age for children is 8, they do need to be great at swimming and good at taking directions. Scuba equipment is not allowed in these waters, meaning you will need to take a big breath and use your scuba equipment to help you dive deep.

The team will take the time and space to help develop your skills, but being comfortable in the water is essential. Experience is not needed, as your guide will teach you step by step how to get the most out of your trip. By the end of the day you’ll be able to freedive and hunt with ease.

If you are going to learn to spearfish, then you really should learn in Mexico – these crystalline waters have some amazing reef formations and shipwrecks, with perfect visibility. You’ll be able to stay close to the shore, and dive to depths of 6m to 30m.

Your dinner will be diverse and awesome too. Expect to target Barracuda, Grouper, Snapper, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Lionfish, African Pompano, Rainbow Runner, and more.

Fruit and water are provided. You will only need to bring swimwear, a rashguard, and waterproof sunscreen. All gear is provided for too. If you want to bring your own that is perfectly fine, but please be aware that powerheads are prohibited in Mexico.

Spearfishing Today know that you may come as strangers, but you are sure to leave as friends, along with a newfound love of spearfishing.

Misleading and disappointing experience.  My wife and I signed up to spearfish however only one speargun was offered to each “team” of two.  I was able to get within firing range of a barracuda, the guide tells you it’s deadly up to ten feet away, the guns are underpowered so unfortunately the spear did not penetrate through the fish even though I was only several feet away.  Needless to say the wounded fish got away. So basically it’s an overpriced snorkeling tour.

Hello Matt. Thank you for your review. Misleading: NO. Disappointing: could be and we are sorry for that. Your guide Anibal explained that freediving should be done in a buddy system. For your own safety!! In between dives you need to take rest on the surface, normally 2 to 3 times the length of your dives. In the time you are on the surface your buddy dives. Etc Etc. So to teach you the buddy system to beginners, which we teach for almost 10 years, we use 1 gun for 2 buddies. If properly done you will NOT have any disadvantage sharing a gun with your buddy; you won´t dive less, you won´t fish less. I don´t call that misleading sir. Your Barracuda. Great you had a shot!  Anibal told in the briefing the guns have a range 9 to 10 feet maximum. You can imagine the closer you are, the bigger change you get to shoot fish. The bigger the fish, the closer you should be. Now in the water fish looks bigger… but also closer. To accuse us of underpowered guns is not nice. Our bands are in top notch shape and we use original Riffe bands. Again I am sorry you had a disappointing experience!
