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.

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 =)

First - be ready to snorkel, swim and dive! This is truly an adventure, not just sitting on a boat while the captain baits your hook. We had an excellent time (Diego is a great guide and teacher). The ocean was a little wavy but we still were able to get enough fish for dinner. Make sure you consider if... More

One of the main reasons why I come year after to Playa for vacation is because of Spearfishing Today. This is my sixth time spearfishing with these guys and every trip is equally incredible. The crew is awesome If you love any form of adventure, this is what you should try, regardless of your skill level/experience. You wont be dissapointed.... More

My partner and I went spearfishing with this company whilst on an all inclusive break and it was totally brilliant. From the very start the crew/company were extremely professional, knowledgeable and made my partner and I feel totally at ease especially as my partner had never done anything like this before and more importantly is very fearful of open water...
