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.

Great experience! Safety is top priority which proves a professional approach. Leo and crew provided great tips and shared some good hunting grounds. We managed to make a few successful shots and even harvested a GIANT lobster. Overall great day fishing with Leo!!

Misleading and disappointing experience.  My wife and I signed up to spearfish however only one speargun was offered to each “team” of two.  I was able to get within firing range of a barracuda, the guide tells you it’s deadly up to ten feet away, the guns are underpowered so unfortunately the spear did not penetrate through the fish even though I was only several feet away.  Needless to say the wounded fish got away. So basically it’s an overpriced snorkeling tour.

Hello Matt. Thank you for your review. Misleading: NO. Disappointing: could be and we are sorry for that. Your guide Anibal explained that freediving should be done in a buddy system. For your own safety!! In between dives you need to take rest on the surface, normally 2 to 3 times the length of your dives. In the time you are on the surface your buddy dives. Etc Etc. So to teach you the buddy system to beginners, which we teach for almost 10 years, we use 1 gun for 2 buddies. If properly done you will NOT have any disadvantage sharing a gun with your buddy; you won´t dive less, you won´t fish less. I don´t call that misleading sir. Your Barracuda. Great you had a shot!  Anibal told in the briefing the guns have a range 9 to 10 feet maximum. You can imagine the closer you are, the bigger change you get to shoot fish. The bigger the fish, the closer you should be. Now in the water fish looks bigger… but also closer. To accuse us of underpowered guns is not nice. Our bands are in top notch shape and we use original Riffe bands. Again I am sorry you had a disappointing experience!

Thank you Richard. It was a pleasure to introduce you to the world of spearfishing. You both did great and improved by the minute! Many great memories. Did you dream about that BIG Grouper hiding in between the rocks? I did. Hope to see you back in future! Muchos saludos. Leo
