I recommend taking this trip if you are a good swimmer who has had some experience diving.

On the way to the first spot, the guide, Pamela, gave instructions on what type of hand signals she would be using for safety reasons, what to expect when in the water, tips on how to dive, how to load and shoot the gun, and so on.

First, they brought us to a shallow area, 12 ft, to get us comfortable using the equipment, diving, and diving with the gun. Once we felt comfortable enough, we left that spot to go to a much deeper spot, ranging anywhere from 30 to 60 feet. You are immediately given the gun and allowed to follow the guide searching for your catch. Pamela did a great job putting us in areas she knew we would have an oppurtunity to shoot. If you have ever spear fished before, or if you are an awesome swimmer this would be an awesome tour to take. My girlfriend is not a great swimmer and I am an okay swimmer, so she decided to just snorkel around and look at all the cool wildlife (we saw a few turtles and a ridiculous amount of “pretty” fish… her words), and I attempted to spear fish. I had plenty of opportunities to shoot, but sometimes my body would just not allow myself to go deep enough. The crew definitely did an excellent job and kept us safe, and we had a lot of fun even though we caught nothing. Pamela caught a Bermit and a mackerel, and once we got ashore they cleaned it and let us have a filet to take to a local restaurant to get cooked. Awesome tour, know your limits. If you aren’t a good swimmer, make sure you get some practice before going.

I scuba dive and love fishing so free dive spear fishing made sense.  Diego taught us a lot, got us on the fish, and made for an amazing day.  His style of teaching on the trek out is perfect and helped us feel comfortable before jumping in the water.  He kept close and taught the rest of the day.  Then the fun continued with talking fishing and travel all over, Diego will exceed high expectations.  Well worth the investiment and an experience of a lifetime.
