You will be able to target Black and Red Grouper, Hogfish, Red Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Lobster, Permit and Cubera Snapper below the surface, using the provided spearfishing equipment.

In the words of Captain Mike: “We just do our fishing from below the boat, rather than from the boat. Make your Destination our Location! ”.

Overall the trip was fun, and the Captain and crew were very nice. There weren’t a lot of fish where we were that were within legal limits size wise but the dives were still fun, and we did shoot one nice 24” red grouper. We dove Crocker reef in 2 different locations, and it was only about a 15-20 ride less than 5 miles offshore.
