3. Spearfishing tours in Phu Quoc
Spearfishing is a kind of adventure tour in Phu Quoc. You are cordially invited to go on a spearfishing/island adventure with the Savage Dragon and OnBird. Spearfishing is an ancient sport, but this time, we are doing it in a modern way. If your picture of spearfishing consists of a man in a speedo standing on a rock-throwing a spear into the water, well… it’s time to update that image a little bit. A modern spearfisher hunt with a speargun is protected by a neoprene wetsuit against the environment of the seas and navigates the underwater depths using a pair of long freediving fins.
You can either come with us as Accompanied Guests or as Hunters.
Accompanied Guests get to experience everything but they do not actually do the hunting parts. Hunters, on the other hand, will be supplied with their own spearfishing gear and will go with me to spear some nice fish for the group to eat. Novice Hunters are those trying spearfishing for the first time and will receive instructions on speargun handling and safety. Advanced Hunters will go hunting at their own pace. Either way, everyone will get to taste their own delicious seafood-decked lunch and dinner and experience an adventure like no other on this side of the Gulf of Thailand ).
