I took the spearfishing 101 course in Lahaina and took away so much more than just a spearfishing experience. In the course you will learn that will enable you to dive deeper, become a better spear-fisherman, and enable you to continue to pursue the sport.

My spearfishing experience was great! Bobby and Noah did a wonderful job of preparing us to hold our breath for a very long time. Watching them spearfish really helped me understand the art of freediving while teaching us respectful fishing practices.

Aloha! As far as keeping fish after our trip, we do rely on our guests being able to keep/prepare their fish in their condo/etc. For those staying in hotels, we do not have a pre-arranged deal with any restaurants. Many have... More
