What a fantastic lesson in free diving and an awesome introduction into the sport! Javier and his crew truly love what they do and know how to do it, that is what makes this adventure one of the best. Now it's my job to take the techniques I learned and practice them to dive deeper for way longer. Look out... More

Overall, it was a great experience. It's certainly an expensive adventure and unfortunately (fortunately in another way) is victim to circumstance. Its beautiful just traveling out to the deeper water, being able to see 45 feet straight down. The first 30-40 minutes were just training in the water - getting used to diving, clearing, etc. It was difficult for both... More

Diego took us out spearfishing. We were a group of 6. He was able to keep us safe and load the guns for those with no experience. I would recommend. We went out with another company the day after and their guide was not as good as Diego. On another note I would have liked this company to provide gloves... More

My review of this trip as an experienced freedivers is that I have built friendships for a lifetime and was shown something that I've never experienced before related to diving. I will be back and suggest you reach out to this group and plan your own personal freediving experience!!!

I'm giving this three stars because I thought the instructors and boat crew were nice guys, but overall this was a disappointing experience. You need to really be able to and know how to free drive. If you don't know how to dive 30 feet while relieving pressure at the same time this isn't for you. I read on trip... More

We live in the Keys and my 14 yr old son goes out freediving and spearfishing nearly every weekend. I am always concerned about the safety of this sport. I feel so much better about it now that Teddy spent some time with these professionals. They taught him so much in the two days that he spent with them. The... More

Javier and Gonzalo took my father and I on a half day trip. We wish we had gone for the full day! Arpon is friendly, knowledgable, and importantly, safe. All the equipment they provided for us was excellent. We were novices, yet Arpon was able to safely introduce us to the sport. We all shot fish around multiple great locations.... More

My son and I dove with Javi and Gonzo for 2 days mid Dec. and had a very good time. We have spearfished in Hawaii, and this was a bit different, drift diving almost, because of the current. The weather wasn't quite as cooperative as the guides, but they have good equipment, geat attitudes, were on time, and we are... More

Javi and the guys know there way around and can guide you whether you are new to the sport or experienced. You are in perfectly good hands. Warm recommendations.

Was first time spearfishing so this was a great chance to learn from Javier and his team. Arpon was very responsive and professional when I reserved a time and when I met them at the departure spot. Javier and team are super fun guys and helped guide me through several hunt locations. After the hunt Javier arranged with Como Como... More
