While non-spearfishing people ask “Can you eat that?”, experienced spearos think “spearing lion fish is for kids”…. Well, these are your opinions: 1. Spearfishing for getting food on the table 2. Spearfishing to have a fantastic time. We all dream about being Aquaman and shooting big fish. Hunting for Lion Fish though is a great way as well to get yourself some delicious dinner and for sure it is fun. It is a different way of spearfishing. Different area, different fish. The good thing is, it is a super activity for young and old (meaning Leo, jaja) and a 100% success rate. Boost your ego I would say.
We offer Lion Fish hunting in Cozumel, Playa del Carmen and Tulum. We snorkel in areas with depths we adjust to how deep you can go and we look for Lion fish. “Aren’t they poisonous?”. Yes, the spines are. The meat is delicious. So far we tried tacos, sandwiches and salads based on the meat of Lion Fish. The guides of SpearfishingToday like to hunt for Lion Fish. Join us for a great adventure!
Did you know that hunting Lion Fish with a scuba tank is NOT allowed here in Quintana Roo….. Only commercial Fishermen and approved scuba guides in the Marine Park of Cozumel are able to use a scuba tank while Lion Fish hunting. Your only scuba opportunity is an organized Lion Fish tournament. Other than that… hold your breath.
