I'm an avid spear fisherman and have been spearing for many years. I booked a trip with Arpon Spear Fishing hoping to score some fish. I did!! Javi and his crew really know the reefs well and will put you on fish. Arpon has a very nice panga boat and riding out to the reefs is a pleasant ride. I... More

My son and I do a lot of 'traditional' fishing at home in the states, so on a recent trip to Mexico decided to try something new, and went spearfishing with Javi - had a great time! Javi runs a first class operation, and while we missed a few shots, Javi and our other guide, Marte', kept things interesting. One... More

I went spearfishing with Javi on my Birthday July 19th. I have previous freediving experience, but nothing like this. I never use fins when I swim or freedive at home, mainly using my upper body pulling myself into fresh water springs. Looking back I wish I would have prepared more with fins. on to the actual review... Javi was extremely... More

Javier has made our visits to his part of the world memorable. Our first trip with him about 5 years ago was my son's first spearfishing trip and I had not dived for years. With Javi's patient and knowlegeable guidance we have progressed well and had a lot of fun. Each year our depth and bottom times have improved, Javi's... More

My dad and I just did our fourth or fifth trip with Javier. As usual, it was fantastic. I shot two baracuda (one almost as long as my body) and my dad shot a trigger fish. Javier always makes the outings fun and exciting. I recommend this to anyone interested in spearfishing, you will not regret it!

I was in Playa Del Carmen the first part of May and booked this excursion since I had always wanted to try spearfishing. I emailed Javier several times and he always responded. Originally booked on a Tuesday, he pushed it back a few days due to weather. They are located at Puerto Adventuras about 15 minutes from Playa. I took... More

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!!!
