It was our first time spearfishing and we learned from the best at Spearfish Maui. My son and I had a fantastic time with John as our guide. It was the highlight of our vacation in Maui. John provided excellent instruction on all the basics and then we were in the water with him as our guide. I would highly... More

Our children are too young to go on a spearfishing expedition (they advised 11 as youngest), but we had a great chance meeting with Spearfish Maui guides John and Chris and they invited us to taste fish they just caught. They passed us chopsticks and offered us sauces to dip the delectable fish (Black Durgon Triggerfish). It was such a... More

Great experience with John the instructor. Small group and good presentation on how to use the equipment. Took us 20 minutes to head to the beach and swim to a great location. John was patient and very observant of our group. We caught five great tasting fish! Highly recommend.

If you are looking for something different then I would highly recommend Spearfish Maui. My teenage daughter and I tried it and found it great fun. Chris and John were fantastic coaches and very helpful. You learn how to hold the gun, how to re load, how to shoot, and dive. The rest is up to you. it is not... More

John was our teacher/guide/sushi chef and was good humored and very knowledgeable. My son and I did the Introductory course and John was informative and enthusiastic. He provided us the necessary information to be successful at spearfishing and was genuinely interested in passing along his passion for the sport. There had been a little debate about spearfishing vs. golf prior... More

Snorkeling on cocaine. Definitely not for the faint of heart or the mediocre swimmer. We had John as our guide, and his multiple decades of experience showed through. Great time had by all!

I signed up for the Introductory Spear Fishing class with my teenage son and a couple close friends. John and his son Chris, were our instructors and guides. They were great! Not only did they teach the basics prior to spearfishing, we shared good stories and laughter. In the water, they were very safe, patient and helpful to us rookies... More

My 14-year-old son and his friend went with their fathers. What a great experience. John and Chris were incredibly patient, such excellent teachers. John stayed with my son the whole time and he caught four fish. He was so excited and so proud of himself. They give you an hour pretraining in a beautiful garden, then they take you to... More

I went for the repeat afternoon outing - we were forced to change locations due to the weather but the spearfishing couldn't have been better - As always John and CJ were perfect instructors - very patient and so knowledgeable. I did the second trip to get more information on techniques as well as fish identification and equipment selection. These... More
