For the potential clients: keep in mind - this is deep dive spearfishing. You have to be well fit and be ready. While I was not that good (60+ already and new to this activity) it inspired me a lot. I enjoyed being with good...More

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.
