Yes, I checked out the pictures from his site. Pretty amazing and a little daunting! I am actually hunting some reassurance from you folks! I have never spearfished before, nor has my husband whom I bought the surprise trip for! I sprung it on him Sunday night (our 5 year anniv) and he was bug-eyed at the pics and video. He loves fishing-- in a very different way-- mainly surfishing.
If you look at the videos, it's hard to imagine a person holding their breath to stay under that long!
I plan to snorkel and just reap the rewards of what is caught. Leo will says he can recommend which restaurants will grill up your prized winnings! I hope I don't get speared while observing fishies aroung the coral!!!
Here are the details Leo sent me (if you're curious):
Spearfishing by boat
Semi private trip
I pick you up by boat from the pier Aqua Safari on Cozumel. This is right across McDonalds/Aqua Safari/your hotel in town.
Fruit and softdrinks/water included.
Incl use of gun, weights and spearfishing permit (I send our ID's ahead and he gets the permit)
You bring your own snorkelgear (fins/mask/snorkel)
WeŽll be back between 1 and 2pm
DonŽt forget sunblock. A towel and a rash guard might be handy as well
I will be sure to post a full report when we return! Hopefully hubby can stone 'em!!!
