Arpon was very easy to communicate with and book a trip. I travelled solo and booked prior to leaving Canada, and I was given a very reasonable price, based on joining another party for the morning. When I arrived, the other party had cancelled, too much drinking the night before. Javi still honored the price and sent me out for... More

I really enjoy fishing, but have never freedove or spearfished before. I wanted to try it out. It was a tremendous adventure. Matias, our guide, was very skilled and caught a number of fish. When I got tired I took a break on the boat and enjoyed the view. The people at Arpon were all very accommodating. Before my trip... More

I found Arpon Spearfishing via Google. Contacted Cynthia by email to arrange the date and location since I was staying in Cancun. I arranged for a taxi (Moises Flores--998.894.3447) to get me to and from Cancun--Hotel Zone. He waited for 4+ hrs whilst I was out on the trip--(total with tip $140USD). I met with Javi, the owner of Arpon,... More

Had a trip booked, it's an hour from Cancun and conditions were not good too rough. They took us out anyway. Fine for advanced free divers not good for a novice (seasick family and frustrated divers trying to get to 45' down) The allowed us a second chance four days later but the van never showed to pick us up....

If you're staying in Cancun, rent a car for a day to get down to Puerto Adventura. It's much cheaper than taxi. THese guys love to spearfish. Cap. Dave was great and Mathieu was one of the best spearos I've seen.

As a professional freedive instructor and spear fisherman, I have high standards of expectations and Matty upheld them all. They put me on the fish and landed my personal best permit as well as had a blast. Went back and did it twice. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend Mattias (guide) and Jonathan (captain). This was the first time my husband and I have been spear fishing and definitely not the last! Mattias is highly skilled at spear fishing. I call him the " Fish Whisperer" bc when he swam down the fish would magically appear. And apparently he currently holds 3 world records in spear... More

Went with Arpon spearfishing twice while we were here. My son and I freedive and got a bunch of fish. They have all the gear you need to dive, but we brought our own gear. The areas they dive can get deep. The reef dive around 25-40 feet and at the wreck, 90 ft. My son got a large permit... More

My husband enjoys spearfishing here in California. He was beyond excited to go on this excursion with Arpon and was not disappointed. I tagged along for the ride and ceviche on Monday and he went back and did another day on Thursday. He is still talking about what an amazing experience it was. He dove deeper and longer than he...
