Spearfishing Playa del Carmen Mexico is an experience you will soon not forget! Playa del Carmen offers fantastic spots to spearfish. Ledges and drop offs are typical for this area. You might run into some good fish at 15 ft or in deep waters as well. Deep Blue spearfishing in Playa del Carmen is simply fantastic.

Playa del Carmen, located between Cancun and Tulum in Mexico, was originally a small Mexican fishing village. Nowadays it is a city very much alive! Miles of unspoiled white sandy beaches, cenotes and a nice blend of a crystal-clear Caribbean ocean and jungle make Playa del Carmen a great destination for holiday visitors from all over the world.

The great thing about Playa del Carmen is that the town has grown parallel to the beach. So wherever you go, you will be close to the ocean. The main street is called 5th Avenue (Quinta Avenida) and it is a pedestrian walkway with many shops, bars and restaurants. From 5 star restaurants or a simple fish taco, the city is characterized by variety and diversity. Whether you like going out until 6am or waking up at 6am to enjoy the sunrise, you will always find something you enjoy to do in Playa del Carmen on your next vacation.

Spearfishing Company Review
Spearfishing was great! I called Leo and booked a trip for the next morning. He sent a detailed e-mail about how to start the trip. I met guide Anibel and 1 other experienced guest at 9am at the port. Anibel was very professional and explained everything very well. He did his best to make sure I was taken care of. If you need something just let him know. Water and fresh fruit were included. Our group ... more stopped at three spots. We took 5 triggerfish, 3 snapper, 1 horse-eye jack, and 1 grouper. I was a first-timer and have little snorkeling experience. At rest, I can hold my breath consistently for 2 minutes and up to 3 minutes. While diving, don't expect to do the same. A 1 minute dive would probably be good for me. I could reload the speargun, but Anibel usually offered to do it for me. I asked Anibel to take some underwater pictures. He said "Sure, my friend", but I didn't have an underwater camera. (I thought maybe he did). I tipped Anibel, but would have tipped BIG for a few underwater pictures. We did snap a few pictures with fish after we were docked at 1:30. I took fish back to the resort to have prepared. This is widely accepted. I hope to come back soon.

We were a group of 7 guys for my bachelor party. The guides were very accommodating and made sure we were having a good time. After the hunt, the guides made some fresh ceviche with our catches that was by far the best I have every had. Highly recommended.

My brother in law and I went spearfishing two days in late July with the Spearfishing Today crew out of Cozumel. We also went last July with them. So far, our experiences with them have been excellent, and very professionally run. We have had Anibel as our guide on all of our trips, and he is very helpful, knowledgeable, and genuinely wants you to have a great time. Plus, he cleans the fish...how ... more nice to have someone else clean your fish!!! The areas we dove are great fun if you are an experienced free diver. The visibility has been great, and it's great fun stalking fish around the coral heads. Spearfishing isn't a game, and they can't guarantee you will be on fish every time, but I think these guys do a good job of putting you on good spots where it's up to you. We'll be back!

Traveled to Cozumel on a scuba trip and we had a day between dives. My friend had been spearfishing with Spearfishing Today in the past and suggested it as a good activity on our off day. I had never thought about spearfishing before but was game. I had no illusions of grandeur for my first trip. In fact, I thought it would be a good excuse to relax, snorkel around and maybe watch the guides go spear ... more some fish. Leo, the owner with his guide Pamela and Captain, Anibal created an environment where I not only felt comfortable participating but one where I was eager to dive under and go get fish for myself. They made an otherwise daunting task quite "do-able" and an absolute blast. Not long after entering the water we were both diving under and going after fish. Not having much training holding my breath for extended periods of time, I thought, "no way can I do what Leo is doing, spending 5 min at a time underwater looking into coral formations and swimming with sting rays" but, with a little coaching I was diving 20ft after fish with little effort. We had several shots on snapper, barracuda and trigger fish. Every time we were about to move locations, I had a difficult time handing back my spear gun because it seemed so quick. I was like, "that was already an hour??" In the end, we came back with a couple of trigger fish that we took to a local restaurant that prepared an amazing lunch. More than that, we came back with great memories, new friends and an intense hunger to go back to Cozumel and do it all over again. Thanks for everything Leo. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

I went on this trip as a novice and wanted to learn more about free-diving and spearfishing. What a great trip!!! Leo is very patient and worked with me to learn how to be safe and challenged me to improve my diving and spearfishing skills. I am already planning a return trip for next Spring.

I did three days of spearfishing with Anabel and Pamela as guides on different days. They are highly professional and accomplished, and all of us on the boat had a great time, even though the fish were relatively scarce.I can't say enough about the service of Spearfishing Today. Any issue, problem, question I had was quickly addressed and solved by Faride, who works in the Playa Del Carmen office.A ... more key consideration -- are you a beginner or an experienced freediver or spearo? If the former, then do a group trip, knowing that all the others on the boat will be, well, in the same boat as you. If you are experienced, I highly recommend asking for a private charter, just you or you and other experienced folks. The day I did with just me, Pamela and Dani (the captain) was far better. We went further out into the ocean, to deeper and more challenging sites. The trips with the beginners were 60% dealing with their issues. I also saw (and shot at) a lot more fish. I missed most of them, but that's just me being lame. It's totally worth the extra money, but be sure you can handle the conditions! We were pretty far offshore, in strong currents, hunting at depths of 30-50 feet.Overall, just a fantastic experience and something I will be doing again in just a few months.

This is my second time with Spearfishing Today, and just like the first time everything was great. The guides and captains are experienced, trained professionals, with safety being there number one priority, and getting fish on the boat their second. We were able to spear 6 trigger fish, and the icing on the cake, go to a local restaurant and have them cook your catch. Nothing beats fresh fish!!!

We had a wonderful day with Leo and his fantastic crew. Spearfishing was all my 13 year old son wanted to do, and what an experience! Leo made sure that safety was stressed (we had 2-13 yr old boys and 2-10 yr old boys) and that all understood what to do once in the ocean. Leo cares about your experience and wants to ensure that the group is comfortable and enjoys the day. The boat was so clean and ... more the service was excellent. Thank you Leo for your patience, kindness and for teaching my son how to spearfish. He is hooked!

We booked three days of spearfishing for our 14 year old son. Although the customer service was beyond excellent we were still slightly uncertain of what to expect. My spearo son, who has traveled and speared all over the world,connected immediately with Leo. He is a class act and true to his customer service, knowledge, skill level, professionalism and safety. Both father and son were able to spear ... more fish and the memories and friendships formed will last us a lifetime. So much, that we are headed back simply to spear with Leo. This is a fantastic experience and I cannot say enough about Leo and Spearfishing Today. If you are looking for exactly what he describes and what you have read in the reviews.... this is the outfit for you. WELL DONE!Dr. Leanne SmithBrook Fordyce, MLB

We had a wonderful time with Hernando (Captain) and Hannibal (Guide) on Friday, February 12, 2016. The entire experience was memorable. I got their information and did my research using TripAdvisor. Leo, the owner has such a sense for customer service. His attention to detail was so refreshing. We even got a holiday greeting from him. The guys were knowledge, friendly and all round great gentlemen. ... more They took pride in their jobs. Hannibal explained every step of spearfishing in advance. Leaving no detail to chance, for the safest experience. Though I only managed the first stop due to the cold water, my brother-in-law loved it and said he will be back. The waters were rough that day but Hannibal did his very best to help my brother-in-law spear a fish. The guys did everything they could to make the trip enjoyable. The fish that Hannibal speared and filleted were divided among the parties (us and a nice man named Dave). The chef at our hotel grilled them for us that evening. They were absolutely delicious, and I don't eat much fish! Thank you Spearfishing Today for the outstanding customer service from beginning (scheduling) to end of our trip (filleting fish on the dock). All three gentlemen answering every single question I had! We will surely promote Spearfishing Today and be back. Hernando and Hannibal made the experience enjoyable for all. My sister and I enjoyed the time in the boat watching and talking to Hernando. He shared a lot about Cozuemul. I would cautions to not judge the size of the boat in the harbor compared to the many others. It was adequate for the experience and made it easy to get in and of the water. Oh, let's not forget to mention that we were approached by the Mexico Coast Guard and they came aside our boat. Their boats was huge and there was at least 5 armed very serious officers. I don't speak much Spanish so it was a little intimidating to say the least. The guys had a conversation with them for approximately 5 minutes, which seemed an eternity. Then they all waved, smiled and through us the lines. Hernando calmly turned to us and said that they had a distress call and was confirming it was not us. Just added adventure and great crewing. PS - a snack of some of the best pinapple I have very tasted!!!
