This is WAY more than just a spearfishing trip. Me and a friend spent the day on a private trip with Mr. John Oka, I have spearfished for over twenty years and yet he taught me so much more. We shot more fish than I ever expected in one of the most beautiful coral reefs I have ever seen. For... More

We arrived for Spearfishing on a very windy day with rough water. We were immediately refunded our money and apologized to profusely - they couldn't have been nicer. Explained that they wouldn't want us to have a bad trip or put us in any danger. I'm sure a lot of people would've taken our money and we would've had a... More

I booked with John and Chris online and unfortunately, when I woke up in the morning, the weather was terrible. High winds, lots of chop on the ocean and a small craft advisory. Didn't seem like the best day for diving. Chris was very cool about the weather and immediatedly offered either a rebooking or a refund. Having had simliar... More

I'm a avid hunter and fisher, so while on my vacation I look for something to do while my wife was at the Spa. These guys were great, the guides were knowledgable, friendly and professional. Safety was their number 1 concern which is great, but it was so much fun and its very affordable! I tell all my friends that... More

Prior to my spearfishing experience, I would have said that I was a strong swimmer. During the summer months, I probably swim frequently with my children in pools. Every vacation, I enjoy snorkeling and have taken too many snorkeling trips to count. We are in our mid-30s and pretty fit (I run 3 miles a few times per week). All... More

By brother and I spent a day with Chris spearfishing on Maui. We were both first timers. Chris was knowledgeable, patient, and had a desire to help us succeed. We learned basic free dive techniques, speargun use, fish identification, and we killed multiple fish. This experience has inspired me to explore further spearfishing opportunities in my home state.

Want to do something a little different in Maui then this is your trip. These guys cater for the inexperienced (me) to the well versed Spearo. Great instruction, very patient and know the best spots to take you. Drinks and all gear provided, just turn up and have a ball. If you want to catch fish then don’t bother with... More

My wife and I did the introductory trip and had a fantastic time. The level of instruction was top shelf and I left feeling that in a few hours I had the benefit of learning skills acquired by guides John and Chris over decades. I can't wait for the next opportunity to get in the water with with the Top... More

This day spent with John was amazing, from the time spent on land to learn the basics, to the spearfishing itself, all the way to the end of day discussions around raw fish and hot sauce. I have to admit I was not sold to the idea in advance, I was only going along with my husband. But, it was... More

I am an avid spearfisher (on scuba), from the cold waters of Puget Sound in Washington State but I am not experienced in breath-hold freediving so I took the beginner course. John and Christopher, (father and son) are patient,knowledgeable, and experienced spearfishers. They are excellent at assessing your abilities and getting you onto fish, starting with the easy pickings and... More
