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.

Leo set everything up for my 9 year old daughter and I to go spearfishing in Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and Cancun. It was so easy to arrive and just leave the rest up to Leo. Our first day in the water, Leo joined us. That was exciting since it was the first time I met him in person. As... More

I was really excited when I booked this trip having been out with Leo a few years back in Cozumel. The booking process was easy and the communication good as always. Diego was a nice guy and the crew seemed okay but we didn't have much communication (not a negative it just didn't happen) The trip: We booked a beginners... More

Diego is an truly professional guide. He mixed the perfect amounts of safety, instruction and desire to shoot fish. Though we only shot a few fish (2 barracuda and a bar jack), everyone in the group had a great time. I must note that there was opportunity to shoot more fish but our group was limited by our own experience... More

We went out with Diego and his crew for the day in Playa Del Carmen. Leo was wonderful in planning this trip with us but the visability in Cancun was not good during our stay so we went to Playa instead which was nice for us to get out of Cancun and see more. Diego was a wonderful host, very... More

My teenage sons researched spearfishing before our Mexico trip because he thought it would combine two of our passions. Fishing and hunting. Boy did it live up to our expectations! Diego was super proffesional and after our briefing I was totally satisfied that a great day lay ahead. Diego was patient with us and gradually lead us to more challenging... More

Leo first taught me to spearfish in 2010. Back then he was first starting out in Mexico having moved from Holland. Over the years I have watched his operation grow into a top notch spearfishing guide service with several guides covering the Yucatan coast. In 2013, I took my buddies down to Playa and Cancun for my bachelor party. On... More

First time spearfhishing. And minimal snorkelling experience. However, Diego taught us from the very beginning in shallower reef, moving to deeper water once we felt more confident. Highlight was that I got a kill shot on a huge barracuda in quite shallow water. Just missed it but Diego managed to spear it. Tasted delicious afterwards!

I would recommend that if you have never been spearfishing to go with Spearfishing Today! I wish I would of booked a trip when we first got to Playa del Carmen. I didn't find them until the end of our trip and spent the last day of the vacation spearfishing. I would have gone several days if I would of... More

Trip went great. Our guide, Diego was fantastic !!! He gave great attention to my girlfriend who's a beginner and took us on some nice shallow reefs which were perfect for her, just like I asked. Fish was delicious on the BBQ =)
