If you're comfortable in the ocean, and can find the peace of mind to relax while you swim in the waves, and looking for an adventure of a lifetime, you must give Javi and Cynthia a chance to provide you the opportunity of a lifetime. I've never done any "free diving" or spear fishing. I trusted Javi and his crew... More

I currently am a scuba diver and decided to try free diving and spearfishing. Cynthia ( email responder/ office manager) and Javi [pronounced HavA](instructor for Spearfishing) were both awesome in their communication via email. Pablo the boat captain understands English more than he speaks but we communicated well and he was very nice and an expert in maneuvering the boat... More

I found that the selection of stores suited my needs but the worst is to listen to all the men calling to you to visit their store. I found that very stressful and did not make my holiday relaxing.

Absolutely beautiful. The water the fish the whole experience. Highly recommend Apron Spear Fishing. Maybe bring some gravol incase the ride out is choppy. Seeing sharks in their element was beautiful. We got to eat barracuda as a local restaurant right at the pier cooked it up for us. Never had something so fresh and delicious. We will be making...

this company provided equipment included all of the equipment for a great day of spearfishing. Spearing conditions were not the best but the crew kept us out longer than contracted for. all of us really enjoyed the day. there are not many companies who provide this service.

Javi and Matias are wonderful. We had booked a trip for Monday and enjoyed it so much that we went back Wednesday! Had a blast! Tough conditions on Monday but Wednesday was another day! We each shot two nice fish( of course, Javi's were the biggest)! I shot a nice lion fish and another small one. We really enjoyed ourselves!

My dad and I decided to try out spearfishing for the first time with Arpon and had a great experience. Booking online was easy and Cynthia answered all our questions and was always in contact. Their boat and equipment was in good condition and they provided everything needed. Javier was a good instructor and the rest of the staff, Matteas... More

from the initial contact with Arpon and through all three trips we took with them, Javier, Cynthia and Gonzo and Matteas were professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Their primary goal was for you to be successful, for you to learn and have a great trip out! Couldn't have asked for better! Love too that they set you up for either lunch... More

My husband and I, our 20 year old son and his friend traveled to Puerto Aventuras May 20th - May 28th. The one thing that the boys wanted to do was spear fishing, so I booked that excursion first. We were scheduled for Friday, May 23rd. I paid in advance. The night before, my son's friend got very ill, to... More
