Just returned from our family vacation in the Cancun area and writing this review was one of the first things on my mind. My fishing excursion was scheduled for the morning of July 30th, 2015 and I only did the half day trip (wish I did the full day). While the rest of my family opted to go the more... More

I highly recommend this outfit. These guys are consummate professionals – a real class act. We are three regular guys in our 30's from NY/NJ and no one in our party had ever been spearfishing before. We also had very little idea what the trip would involve. Our lack of experience and ability was no matter because our guides excelled... More

Recently returned from a family vacation trip to Playa Del Carmen. I was planning to break away from the family for a one-day solo adventure - most likely scuba dive. My options were another reef dive (yawn), a wall dive in Cozumel, a Cenote dive or try a completely new sort of adventure I've always been curious about - spearfishing!... More

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!
