Spearfishing at Florida Keys Dive Center

For those divers interested in the sport of spearfishing, we offer two options.  For beginners, we offer the PADI endorsed “Underwater Hunter” class.  This is a PADI specialty course that was written by our owner and includes a PADI specialty certification card.  It is a 1/2 day class that starts at 8:00am and ends around 12:00.  It consists of a short classroom session in the morning, followed by two spearfishing training dives with your instructor.  You will learn about the equipment, hunting techniques, Fish identification, safety and other spearfishing related tasks.  Once back at the dock your instructor will fillet your fish so you can take them to one of our many restaurants for a “cook and catch” dinner.  Or bring them home to cook up yourself. 

Course includes

Classroom session, two spearfishing training dives, Fishing license, Speargun and stringer, PADI Certification Card, filleting of fish.
