Alex took me and 2 friends for two days of spearfishing and free diving. Alex is the ultimate professional , while being relaxed and fun. We all felt safe and relaxed while enjoying some of the clearest and bluest waters. I highly recommend Alex if you're looking to free dive and /or spear.Cheers.

My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to stumble upon Spearfishing Barbados while on the island. Alex was quick to respond and schedule a day with us in the water. I was shocked with how knowledgeable he was and the thorough protocol he followed to make sure we were safe in the water. Although we've done plenty of spearfishing, we learned a ton about breath holding techniques and equalizing, and got ... more to try out spearguns for the first time. By the end of Alex's speargun crash course (10 minutes or so), I felt very confident handling one. Alex also ensured we knew all the fish we wanted to spear and didn't want to spear... and made sure we didn't leave empty handed. He can spot anything and is very helpful with lining you up to spear the fish! Not to mention, he is helping with research of lion fish and was collecting samples of the invasive species. He cares about the protection of the Caribbean reefs and fish population!

Thank you Alex - you gave my son a wonderful first experience of spearfishing and free diving. As a mother, I felt totally confident in your professionalism and knowledge and was happy for him to go off with you and enjoy an amazing and unique experience. He loved it and I can't keep him on the surface during our snorkelling any more! Thank you so much. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Wonderful ... more value for money for the high quality service provided. Plus he brought home lunch!!!!

Went on two dives with Alex and they were both great. I am relatively experienced in the water and can recommend Alex to anyone considering trying out Spearfishing - Barbados west coast was a perfect place for both beginners and experienced divers. Nice visibility, close to shore dives and perfect temperatures. Alex is also a free dive instructor so I found it very useful getting tips to improve my ... more breath hold and dive deeper too. We shot a bunch of lion fish, but missed 4 nice mackerel swimming right past when we didn't have our guns ready. Alex definitely looks after you...loading the gun, gutting the fish, proper safety briefing etc. definitely try it if your in the island. Dylan

My friend Andrew and I went diving with Alex in Nov. 2015 and it was incredible. We were out for 3-4 hours and ended up getting some lobster and Lion Fish which Alex cleaned and filleted on the spot. We had an awesome meal when we got back to the house. Alex was very professional, knowledgeable and environmentally aware while on his tour. We will be back this Nov. with others to enjoy.

A friend and I went to Barbados looking to spear some lionfish, and we contacted Alex. We went out with him for two days and collectively caught nine lionfish. Alex is a well-experienced spear fisherman and a really nice guy. We learned a lot about spearfishing and lionfish, and had a lot of fun. If you are looking to go spearfishing and have a great time, look no further.

Amazing experience. Alex was a great teacher and guide and tailored the trip to exactly what we wanted to do. Picked us up from the hotel and gave us a tour of the island afterwards. Got the fish filleted at the market and dropped off (seasoned!) filets for us at the hotel. I highly recommend for a great value and a great time.

What a blast! Thanks a lot to Alex, this was an amazing experience and I learned a lot! This was my first spearfishing experience in Barbados and loved the site where Alex brought me! Nice wreck and even a submarine and pleasant day out - Alex is very professional, conservation oriented and personable - My family was able to enjoy a fresh meal (5lbs Bar Jack) cooked right as per Alex's recommendations! ... more Also sent some very nice pictures which I received a couple days later when at work, making me with I'd still be underwater in Barbados! I highly recommend Spearfishing Barbados to any level - Alex takes the time to go through a good dive plan, provide tips and techniques as you go and bring you back safe and highly satisfied! Thanks again Alex and I hope to see you soon!

Spearfishing was THE highlight of our trip!My sisters and I were almost complete beginners at free diving. By the end of the trip, we were making 20-30 feet dives, with time to shoot, comfortably.Alex is the perfect guide, in and outside the water: he seems to know everything about fishing, the fish we catch, and Barbados in general. Even if you strike out, its almost guaranteed that Alex will catch ... more some Lion-fish for you to bring home (very tasty - Alex has recipe ideas).My sisters and I are completely hooked.If you have time, Alex also teaches a free-diving course - this would help you get even more out of spearfishing. I'm definitely planning to take this next time I visit the island.I would recommend this trip to anyone, regardless of experience, who is looking to try something new and for an exciting challenge.

I went on a charter with Alex on the 5th of April. I am a relatively experienced spearfisher who has been diving for about 15 years.I must be in honest in saying that Barbados seems like a relatively fished out place having been impacted by heavy fishing over a long period of time. As such, for those dreaming of monster fish it is best to reset expectations before you go.That being said, the diving ... more is absolutely beautiful with clear, warm water with little to no current and it's still a great day out. Barbados is therefore a fantastic place to dive for beginners or freedivers looking to practice.Now onto Alex himself...I have dove with many spearo's in many countries and must say Alex has a lot of heart and certain passion that can be quite rare. Even though he was unwell he made sure what I was after was well catered and I could see he truly looks after his clients.He was doing a lot of the work-horse activity such as moving the flashers and chumming/burleying the fish. It was clear he was there to help me get fish, not go for a fish himself (something I have experienced in the past).That being said I got lucky and took a beautiful mutton snapper which absolutely made the day.Alex's photography skills made sure I had some great memories and we had a great chat about how the best part of spearfishing is of course enjoying your catch for dinner and time spent in the ocean.He's a great ambassador to the sport and as such even though it might not be the kind of charter where you are shooting fish all day long, Alex's heart is in the right place and it's an enjoyable day on the water.I will recommend to anyone who asks.

My family of 4 had a great spearfishing excursion with Alex! He helped us with a lot of snorkeling tips, showed us a lot of fish of which we picked off a few and was just a great host. He picked us up and dropped us off at our resort. And we learned a lot about the island which helped us when exploring by jimny jeep the next day. I would recommend this experience to anyone with a sense of adventure. ... more Thank you Alex!!! Jon from Pennsylvania

I would recommend Alex and barbados spearfishing to anyone, not just thoose who like to try spearfishing. Alex gave me a couple of really good freediving instructions during the day that really helped my game and took my snorkeling experience to an new level.If there is time during your barbados stay i woud suggest doing a freediving session with Alex, practising a couple of days ant then come back ... more for the spearfishing session. The diving part is really important to be successful and catch fish.Having said that Alex did all the hard diving work and had a really good sence to find lionfish, a delicios fish of witch we caught like six.

Alex was an amazing guide, coming from the world of scuba diving, he has taught us a lot about free diving and methods of breathing. We also had the chance to learn about the lionfish, we caught some and learn how to removed their venomous spines. We ate it for the first time and what a feast! Thank you very much Alex for 3 hours in the fantastic waters of Barbados.

My husband and I stopped in Barbados for the day from a cruise ship and went spear fishing with Alex. Not only was he very knowledgable in spearfishing, free diving and breath holding techniques, he was also a lot of fun to dive with and made the experience a great memory. We ended our dive with 7 lion fish and a lobster, which he filleted our fish for us. We had a bar at the port cook it up.

Alex was super knowledgeable and is awesome at what he does. I'm surprised that lionfish are still considered invasive species after Alex is in the water.Though we didn't spear anything too big, after ~3:30 hours in the water, I went home with the fillets of ~7 lionfish and 2 lobsters. He even stayed for a good amount of time after he dropped me off home, answering any questions I still had. Would ... more recommend to anyone of any skill level who is even a little bit interested in spearfishing.

Alex was great - instruction, knowledge, experience, expertise. We even cooked the parrotfish and lionfish according to his suggestions, and our friends (who didn't spearfish) devoured them and said they were really excellent. Alex set us up really well - put us on fish, equipped us with excellent gear, taught us diving skills. I'd recommend Alex to anyone looking to spearfish in Barbados!

Found Spearfishing Barbados on Youtube and took a chance at contacting with no idea what to expect. Found me a diamond in the rough. Did my dives with Alex yesterday and after about 3hours of fishing, we had catches of large squid, few 5" to 12" lionfish and a spiny lobster. Highly recommend Alex to anyone who is novice to experienced or just interested in spearfishing. Safety is his priority and ... more making you feel safe is almost second nature. We explored a submarine, shipwreck and some reefs and my only regret is not having someone as knowledgable as he is back home.He also took the time to fillet the lionfish and bag out all the catches for me to carry back to eat. A-grade customer service and as informative as you need.Wife and i had the lobster and squid cooked the same night. Bravo.

I completed a Morning of spearfishing with Alex in the off peak season and had an awesome time. I was a confident swimmer and had pole speared before but had not used a gun. Alex took me though all the required information to get a fish and gave me some great points into free diving, shooting the gun, etc. Highly recommend doing the tour if you have a free day or two and the fish you catch tastes ... more even better when you get to eat it!

This was a terrific experience. Alex is a very knowledgeable man, he knows what you want and what you are capable of achieving without rushing you. He always helps you load the gun if you need it. If you come to Barbados and you want to catch your own meal... You must go with Spearfishing Barbados. We got some Lion Fish and Lobsters just in front of where we parked. And everybody enjoyed that meal. ... more Highly recommended at any level.Dinael

Alex was a phenomenal guide, and my girlfriend and I wholeheartedly recommend that you enjoy a spearfishing expedition with him when you're in Barbados. The experience would be worth the price even for the snorkeling/diving alone, but you also get the spearfishing training, fish and ecosystem instruction, and some really high quality action shots taken with Alex's GoPro camera. We will almost certainly ... more go spearfishing with Spearfishing Barbados the next time we're on the island, and we'll perhaps try one of the other expeditions Alex offers as well.

I came across one of Alex's posters by chance on the island and gave him a call to arrange a spearfishing introduction. The experience was great! Alex was super professional and took time to explain techniques thoroughly and give an overview of underwater hunting and the species we were going after and why. We came back from the dive with some tasty Lionfish fillets for lunch, even though the amount ... more of target fish was not that many on my dive (it is fishing after all!).I thoroughly recommend the experience and will definitely be giving Alex a call next time I'm on the island!As an aside I'd definitely recommend taking a rash vest if you have one, the sun is strong while you are snorkelling around and the t-shirt I wore wasn't ideal.
