“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Was first time spearfishing so this was a great chance to learn from Javier and his team. Arpon was very responsive and professional when I reserved a time and when I met them at the departure spot. Javier and team are super fun guys and helped guide me through several hunt locations. After the hunt Javier arranged with Como Como to prepare some of the catch (a lobster and 3 fish) for me for dinner. The lobster and fish were amazing and Como Como did a terrific job with the rest of dinner.

“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

Javier and the guys are amazing aquatic athletes. It is truly a show watching them. I had no experience snorkeling or diving and they helped me have a great time while learning. I went three times because I liked it so much! I would suggest going more than once. You will be able to do more each time.

I travel the world much of the year in search of adventure and this is way up on my list. It will be my pleasure to go spearfishing with them again ASAP!

“More fantastic experiences with Javi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

After last year's dive with Javi we decided to return to Cancun specifically to do it again - two dives this time!

I recommend this experience to anyone who likes snorkeling and eating seafood - it adds another dimension to your vacation. It was my son's second time spearfishing and under Javi's guidance he has really improved.

The only hard part is leaving - especially as your departing plane flies you over all those amazing reefs!! We'll be back next year, when I hope to have all three sons in the water.

“Beautiful beaches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I think the beaches here are some of the prettiest I have seen. We enjoyed strolling down the beach and taking in the scenery after we shopped the stores on Fifth Ave. The stores on Fifth Avenue were very touristy, every other store had the same items for sale, and the merchants would meet you in the street to try and get you to come in. There was a great variety of restaurants to choose from and we ended up choosing an Italian restaurant and having pizza.
