The ORIGINAL spearfishing adventure in Playa del Carmen. Freediving and spearfishing... a wonderful combination! It is exciting and a real adventure. Our motto, "live to spear and spear to live," could not be more true. If we can't find fish... nobody can.

My family and I have spearfished many years and have gone on trips out of Cozumel but had the opportunity to do a trip in Playa Del Carmen this last time. Leo and Diego were unbelievably helpful from how to take the ferry from Cozumel to Playa Del Carmen, to how to make it easily to the boat and prepare... More

We went out for a morning spearfishing tour and wow what an adventure this was. It isn't as easy as you'd think it would be but our guide taught us the best methods and in a short time, we had working knowledge of the process. We ended up catching a barracuda which we ate - and was the BEST ceviche... More

It was an awesome experience. Even though I am an inexperienced at snorkeling, Diego was able to teach me how to spearfish. I really appreciate everything.

My wife and I decided to go spearfishing on fairly short notice and Leo took great care of us. In fact the whole crew - Anibal, Cecilio, and Moises - were really friendly. Anibal was great about teaching safe spear gun handling, respect for the reef, and showed us where the good fishing is. It would have been a good... More

Just returned from a couple of weeks on the Riviera Maya. During my holiday I spent two days spearfishing with Spearfishing Today. I had a fantastic time: diving deeper and for longer than I could previously, and I shot a 20lb barracuda, awesome! Leo and Diego are 'proper' sportsman with lots of top advice and tips as well as great... More

This trip went very well and the crew was great considering it was our first time. The boat was in very good "ship shape" and so was all the equipment. We had some trouble going deep enough for long enough, but they gave us a few tips that were very helpful. In the end we got a big barracuda and... More

Hola amigos! Thank you for reviewing us! I am terribly sorry for what happened in the restaurant. 80usd when you bring your own fish is far from ok. The restaurant you went to charges maximum 7.5usd per person to prepare the fish. So that means the restaurant ripped you off or you drank a lot, jeje. Well. I assume it... More

Me: I have advanced scuba diving experience and this was my first time spearfishing. Prior, my deepest freedive was 15 feet. I also read TripAdvisor reviews before my trip. Intro: I stayed at the north end of Cancun’s hotel zone with my wife and 2 year old daughter and was thrilled to see that Spearfishing Today also departs out of... More

Had a wonderful experience with Spearfishing today! Our guide was Hannibal. He made sure we had a great spearfishing experience. We caught some fish, Hannibal caught some lobsters for us. The best ending of the trip was a nice dinner on the beach. Amaranto restaurant on the beach cooked all our fish and lobster for us, it was delicious! Highly... More
