Spearfishing Holbox Mexico
Spearfishing Holbox Mexico is an incredible experience! The island of Holbox, 2.5 hours by car north west of Cancun and then a ferry ride. Is spearfishing Holbox Mexico worth it? You bet. Holbox is different from our other Mexican spearfishing locations. We only offer full day trips for experienced spearfishermen and women. We will go 50 miles to the open ocean to find pinnacles and shipwrecks and amazing fish of course.
Holbox is 10 miles long and is considered a virgin tourist destination. You’ll end up in another decade. The streets of the island of Holbox are made of sand (there are no stone roads), and there are hardly any cars. Most of the people of Holbox Island make their living fishing. So don’t be surprised to see fishermen walking around with their catch of the day.
Holbox Mexico is well known for snorkeling with whale sharks as well as being a sanctuary to thousands of flamingos, pelicans and other birds. There are quite a few good seafood restaurants that love to cook up your fish too. Also, you´ll find numerous great cabañas and small hotels right on the beautiful white sand beaches. Your loved ones and friends can stay on the beach to see you coming back with your catch.
We can honestly say that when you’re a spearo and you’ve seen it all that spearfishing Holbox Mexico will still give you goose-pimples. The spearfishing is really, really good.
