Spearfishing Today – Playa Del Carmen

Coco Beach Playa Del Carmen
Playa Del Carmen QR, Mexico

Always dreamed about releasing your inner hunter? Or are you an avid fisherman that wants to try a new way to get dinner on the table? With Spearfishing Today all your underwater spearfishing dreams will come true. Located in Playa del Carmen, this is an awesome place for your spearfishing adventure.

You will snorkel on the surface, hold your breath, dive under the water and shoot the fish you want for dinner. Scuba equipment is not allowed in these waters, so these trips are for people who are comfortable freediving.

The kids don’t need to miss out though. If they are over 8 and are good swimmers and can take directions well then they are sure to have a great time too. Your guide will talk them through how to spearfish, showing them the tricks of the trade. They will be spearos in no time!

You will target a huge range of species during your trip, such as Snapper, Grouper, Barracuda, Permit, Mackerel, Wahoo, African Pompano, Lionfish, and more. Your guide for the day will be Diego. He is a knowledgeable biologist who speaks Spanish and English.

Your guide, Diego, will meet you at the beach. On the 30’ center console boat, he will explain to you the principles of freediving and spearfishing, the fish you will target, and, of course, how to use a speargun. On average you will go to 3 to 5 different spearfishing spots around Playa del Carmen.

During the trip, Diego will give you hands-on advice to improve your hunting skills, so you will really learn to spearfish like a pro. In between dives there will be a break so you can rest, eat the fruit provided, have a drink, and share stories.

After the trip, he will clean your fish for you and advise you on local places that will cook your fish. Diego is passionate to get you onto the fish and show you why spearfishing is such a great method of catching your prey.
