Top Shot spearfishing is a Top-notch experience. I have spearfished in Florida Keys my whole life. I learned a ton of new tactics and new skills with Top shot guys. We got an octopus and bunch of fish which we loved! I will be coming back again hiring Top shot again!

Solid day of spearfishing with Jeremy. I got the five star service pick-up right at my hotel, which gave the missus the car to get around town for the day. First dive spot was challenging (exactly what I was looking for)...deep dives, long breath holds required, and shots at large Pelagic species about 200 yards offshore. Jeremy worked the flashers and the chum to bring in a nice jobfish, then had ... more me drop onto a massive pipe that was holding a large ulua (giant trevally). Wrapped up diving there, broke for lunch, and hit a reef dive to shoot a mess of roi (peacock grouper). On this dive we got the full gambit of action, to include a visit from a large white tip reef shark, shooting a good size bluefin trevally, and filling a stringer full of roi. Fun dive. Awesome day. Definitely a challenge from my usual dives in California, and had a great guide to put me on fish. Definitely recommend the full day exclusive dive for any experienced spearos wanting to push theirs limits and have a shot a good size pelagics and skittish reef species. Must do trip on Big Island!

Spearfishing is so much fun!
Our group of 6 had an excellent time! My husband and I had a great time spearfishing with Top Shot 3 years ago on Maui and definitely wanted to do it again on our family trip to the Big Island. Our group of 6 had so much fun and everyone speared some fish!

My son and I met up with Jeremy for our first ever introduction to spearfishing. We started on the shore with a briefing that gave us all the baseline knowledge including breathing technique, safely operating the speargun, and hunting strategy. We then headed out into the ocean for 2 hours of spearfishing. Jeremy is a great level headed easy to talk to instructor with years in the field and my son ... more and I agreed that the morning/afternoon with Top Shot was the highlight of our week long trip to The Big Island.

Did a trip from 8am to 2pm with Jeremy at Top Shot Spearfishing. Excellent job teaching from a level headed business professional who clearly understands both his passion of spearfishing and how to run an effective business where clients will return. No bravado typically experienced from "guides", just good information and in the water great skills modeled on both free diving and spear-fishing. If ... more you are a hunter and want to try it in the water, or, are looking for something not typically done on a Hawaii vacation this is the activity to try.

I met Jeremy in October about a week into my trip, would've done it sooner were it not for the fact that the beginning of my vacation started with bronchitis. This wasn't my first spearo experience, however it was my first with a guide. My only regret was being sick because I would've made the trek from Hilo to Kona twice during my week n a half on Big Island, the breathing technique is essential ... more to learn regarding spear fishing; even though I was just coming of bronchitis I was able to stay down much longer than I expected. The equipment Top Shot uses in my opinion is top notch, I have a travel JBL 2gun in one combo, which now is basically junk after using Jeremy's weapons of choice. The thoroughness of the lesson was well worth the price tag, for these are techniques that once learned can be practiced and built upon for the rest of your spearo adventures. In hind sight comparing my previous outings in other tropical locations I have come to the conclusion that the Hawaiian fish r much more skittish than other locations so learning and tandem spearfishing with Top Shot really gets you to the big leagues kinda right away because if you can land fish in Hawaii your chances in other locations really sky rocket. In closing if you want to learn how to spear fish the correct way and understand which fish to properly hunt, and who the bad guys are,(the Roi), than go experience the aloha with Jeremy and the rest of the Top Shot crew because these skills will assure you are doing it correctly with the proper etticut and the right mindset and go get you some Aloha and join the Spearo Ohana! Jeremy thank you for an afternoon I will never forget and I look forward to my next visit, and if all things workout for me perhaps in the future we can discuss me opening a kiosk on the Hilo side, many Mahalos brahda, sincerely RIPLEY

Technically, it's my husband who went - and not me - but, he found it via TripAdvisor, so I figured it would be appropriate for me to review since he doesn't have his own account. We often go fishing together when we vacation - on a boat - which was an activity available to us in Kona. However, my husband wanted to try something new - and spearfishing fit the bill. What he loved most about it was ... more that it wasn't a typical "tourist" activity. Unlike a fishing charter, where they set up your reels and take care of everything for you, you actually have to do the work yourself! There is no boat, you all get into the water and off you go! Once they got in, the instructor helped identify which fish they could spear and made sure everyone was safe and responsible. He really enjoyed it - it was active and engaging (and also, delicious)!

Jeremy was a GREAT teacher, made everything make sense and brought us to a high level of comfort and confidence before even entering the water. Can not wait to go again with top shot. The passion, knowledge, patience, skill and positive teaching was 5+star. Well done Jeremy. We will be back to go hunting again with you!! Thank you....

My family just moved to the Big Island and I was interested in spearfishing. Jeremy is a really good communicator and helped me get a good foundation for learning more on my own. You'll be able to tell that he is excited to share the sport and local knowledge with you.I am sure that once my skills have improved that I will dive with Top Shot again.

Had a great first time experience spearfishing with Jeremy. I look forward taking what I learned and continue growing with the sport in the NW. You definitely should do this on your trip to Kona.

There were three of us (newbies) on this trip and each of us had some SCUBA and snorkeling experience but had never done any spearfishing. We went through the instruction and in short order were in the water applying the skills we learned. If we hadn't been taught by Jeremy Selg, the real deal, we might not have gotten any fish. But with his solid knowledge base, patient instruction style and his ... more amazing skill we were able to learn how to safely spearfish and we got more than enough for a very nice dinner!!! If you're looking to take your aquatic or snorkel adventure to the next level give Jeremy a call. It was a lot of fun and an experience we'll always remember. We'll definitely be back Jeremy!!!

Our day with Jeremy spearfishing was the best thing we did in Hawaii. We learned safety and diving techniques that helped us catch fish and have a great time. The experience was much more exciting and fun than the far more expensive boat fishing trip that we took days earlier (partially because we didn't see any fish or even get a bite on the boat) but also because we were engaged and active the entire ... more time. It was the first time spearfishing for all of us and I can't wait for the next opportunity I have to go.

I dove in Kona with Jeremy. It was my first time doing spearfishing and i did two private sessions with him. I met a great professional, passionate and very technical. As a freediver I learnt certain techniques and he taught me new techniques for spearfishing. I discovered a beautiful sport, technical, physical and tactical. He is a patient coach and involved in the ecosystem preservation. I definitely ... more recommend to go for it with Topshot. Jeremy, I ll be back soon ;-)!Jerome

Jon and Chris were amazing! We had an absolutely blast with these two; in fact, we are talking about booking with them again when we go back to Hawaii soon. We reminisce often on our one of a kind trip :-).

This is a top notch operation! There was a southern swell that was making visibility poor, so rather than take us out in poor conditions, they waited two weeks to get us out. Well, yesterday was the day and it was well worth the wait! We were taught the basics of freediving, using the speargun, fish identification, spearfishing techniques, etc. Chris and John were an amazing team in teaching us how ... more to spearfish. Once we were in the water, the beautiful area they took us to was great for freediving and great for spearfishing. I'm here for another week and hope to get out with them at least one and hopefully two more times. I would highly recommend getting out with Top Shot as their top priority is your having a great time!
