Lionfish Adventure - Belize Spearfishing Tour

Fight an invasive species while you explore the Belize Barrier Reef

Hamanasi's Lionfish Spear Fishing Adventure offers scuba divers the chance to spear this invasive species. Belize is supportive of efforts to rid its waters of this voracious eater. Prior to diving there will be a briefing describing the Lionfish, a scientific explanation of the threat the fish poses in the Caribbean and why hunting the species is ecologically sound. On the first dive the Divemaster will point out the Lionfish, its habitat and demonstrate how to spear and bag the fish. During the surface interval, the divers learn how to clean the fish.

If the Divemaster determines that the diver has adequate dive skills, including buoyancy control, the guest may test his skills at spear fishing during the second dive under the supervision of the Divemaster.  All Lionfish caught will be recorded to track progress in controlling the population, and will be prepared fresh in the Hamanasi kitchen. Enjoy the results of your labor at the dinner table that night!

This is my 6th Belize dive adventure in the past 18 years and my best ALL around experience.

Everything surpassed our expectations. We came here as new diver because we wanted an operation we could trust and we found that here.

I’ve been to quite a few dive resorts. Hamanasi is hands down, the best so far. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Best dive experience we have ever had. Everyone top Notch. Best vacation ever!
