Spearfishing Huatulco invites you to join Captain Gonzalo Cruz for a fun day of spearfishing in the waters near Huatulco, Mexico. The crew is very passionate about spearfishing and freediving and will do their best to make sure you have a blast while you’re aboard.

The boat itself is a 27’ Imemsa that’s powered by a Yamaha engine. It’s equipped with all the necessary safety and navigation gear, plus amenities such as a shower that you can use. There is plenty of space aboard for up to 8 passengers, so feel free to bring along your friends or family members.

The captain knows the local fishery like the back of his hand and will take you to the best places for either spearfishing or just regular freediving. Some of the fish species you can expect to see in these waters include Mahi Mahi, Jack Crevalle, Amberjack, and Spanish Mackerel.

The price of a trip includes three spearguns with all of the accompanying fishing and snorkeling gear. Feel free to bring some drinks and snacks if you want, and don’t forget a pair of sunglasses. Don’t worry if you’re not experienced in spearfishing, the crew is there to show you all you need to know.
