Spearfishing and Freediving in Miami
1-3 Guests • No Lodging • Public • Guided
Spearfishing is an ancient method of fishing that has been used throughout the world for millennia.
Early civilizations were familiar with the custom of spearing fish from rivers and streams using sharpened sticks.
Today modern spearfishing makes use of elastic powered spearguns and slings, or compressed gas pneumatic powered spearguns, to strike the hunted fish. Specialized techniques and equipment have been developed for various types of aquatic environments and target fish.
Spearfishing may be done using free-diving, snorkeling, or scuba diving techniques. Spearfishing while using scuba equipment is illegal in some countries. The use of mechanically powered spearguns is also outlawed in some countries and jurisdictions. Spearfishing is highly selective, normally uses no bait and has no by-catch.
Among all the different fishing techniques that exist, Nets, fishing with a rod, longlines etc. Spearfishing is the “greenest” of all . The spearfisherman, choose their prey and only hunt what they will eat. Since the hunter is dependent only on the air in their lungs they don’t have lot of time to decide what prey to choose, so one must choose wisely. On the other hand, fishermen with nets catch any fish, big or small and many of them return back to sea injured or dead.

Jorge Mario G
Jorge Mario was born in Camaguey Cuba at 180 kilometers away from the sea. He first started to spearfish when he was 9 years old; he would go to his grandparent’s house on the beach and spend the whole time in the ocean. As he kept doing that by the time he was 16 years old spearfishing was definitely his favorite sport. At the age of 22 years at the beach of Guardalabarca, he won his first championship. He's been a national Champion on 5 occasions during the period 1976-1982. Since 1981 he’s been a 3 star CMAS, PDIC, and also SCUBA and Freediving instructor. He’s been giving classes to students who’ve wanted to learn how to spearfish and free dive since 1992.
