The ORIGINAL spearfishing adventure in Playa del Carmen. Freediving and spearfishing... a wonderful combination! It is exciting and a real adventure. Our motto, "live to spear and spear to live," could not be more true. If we can't find fish... nobody can.

This was my second time with Leo and his crew, and it was even better than the first -- and I gave that five stars! For this trip, Leo not only arranged three days of private charter diving and spearfishing for me, but also the condo (which was fantastic) and the airport transfer. He runs a tight operation, with everything... More

Where to start? The crew that came and picked us up were very nice. Safety was of utmost importance. I was worried that our group (11 of us) was going to be to big, but our guides Anibal and Luis were totally cool and calm, making sure all questions were answered and everyone was comfortable. We shot a Permit fish... More

Such a fun trip. my wife and I booked a private Spearfishing trip. We decided to do private since neither of us had any experience and did not want to hold anyone else back. The cost was very reasonable, and the guides were super accommodating and patient. From the first inquiry, it was a very pleasant experience dealing directly with... More

My wife and I booked a family trip with Leo and Spearfishing Today recently and I have to say, it was a fantastic experience. Luis, our guide, was knowledgeable and made us all feel at ease (we also took our 15-year-old son along, who bow fishes back in Wyoming, where we reside). We had such a great time exploring different... More

Starting off with the initial booking, Faride made our trip a pleasure without even being on the boat yet. She even went the extra mile to ensure us a great place to stay (Casa Ticul) when we decided to extend our trip for another night. My brother booked with this outfit the year previous and my friend went a week... More

As the title states, our time with the Spearfishing Today team of owner/guide Leo, guide Luis, and Capt. Cecilio & his crew was in fact better than awesome! My wife and I had a taste of successful spearfishing in Tahiti (hunting smaller fish in only 8-10 feet of water) a few months before and thought our kids would enjoy the... More

From booking to our day on the water, Spearfishing Today was great to work with. Leo put together a package to suit our exact needs, even though they changed shortly before our arrival, he was very accommodating to change the package to suit us. On our day to fish, the weather did not co-operate and we again adapted the schedule... More

My husband loves both hunting and fishing, so on our recent trip to Playa we were looking for something unique and different from simply deep sea fishing. We ultimately decided for him to try out spear fishing, and he is definitely hooked! He went out with Leo on a Wednesday, and three days later decided to do a second tour.... More

I was paired up with Diego, who was initially an instructor and then let go. He was an awesome guide!!!!! We had a great time bagged... More
