If you’re looking for an active, unique, and extremely fun way to fish, Easy Spearfishing is the right charter for you! Spearfishing is the most dynamic way of fishing. Join Ruben Canfield as he teaches you apnea and freediving techniques, how to recognize the different reef species of fish, as well as instructing you which ones are protected and which ones aren’t.

The vessel they use is a 23’ custom-built offshore sportfisher. It’s powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine. It’s capable of comfortably seating 6 people, although due to safety concerns, only 4 spearguns are to be in the water at the same time. All of the equipment required for spearfishing is provided by the charter, as well as the training to use it.

Spearfishing is the most selective way of fishing available to the modern angler. The beauty of spearfishing isn’t just in the hunt for the fish, it’s also the gorgeous undersea landscapes you get to witness. This charter will take you to the breathtaking reefs of the Mexican coast, teeming with colorful fish and inspiring views.

Captain Ruben accepts and encourages children to learn how to spearfish in a safe and responsible manner. Being a marine biologist, all customers will also learn some interesting lessons about the species of fish they are targeting, as well as the local ecosystem. After the trip, the crew will clean and fillet your catch, so you can enjoy a tasty feast you have caught with your own two hands!

Easy Spearfishing is available to customers who are confident swimmers as you may be going as deep as 10m under the water.

Captain Ruben Canfield is a biologist by profession and a true fan of nature and especially the ocean. He grew up deeply intertwined with hunter and fisher culture in his area, and that is his main reason for staying at Playa del Carmen. He chose spearfishing as his fishing path because it matches his beliefs in sustainability and catching only fish that are meant to be eaten. Ruben looks forward to teaching young and old anglers about spearfishing and sustainability, on the sandy, gorgeous beaches of Mexico.
