  • Complimentary bottled water, soft drinks, and fruit on the boat!
  • Enjoy complimentary lionfish ceviche afterward!

This is a unique Costa Maya shore excursion for certified divers to help the Caribbean reefs. Hunt Lionfish on a one tank SCUBA dive with experienced guides. Your catch will be prepared for a tasty local-style ceviche to enjoy afterward!

The lionfish is destroying the coral reefs in the Caribbean. They are native to the Indian Ocean but escaped an aquarium that was damaged by a tropical storm. With no natural predators, it has been causing major problems ever since. They are overrunning the reefs, preying on native species of marine life and the reefs are slowly being destroyed. The only way to help the reefs to hunt them.

Lionfish are actually very pretty to look at with their signature red, white and black strips and flowing fins. They can live up to 15 years and grow up to 2 lbs and 18 inches long.

You only need to be a certified diver with 35 dives (please bring your log book) and the last dive within the past 8 months. Please read all restrictions to make sure you qualify. The local experienced, PADI divers/guides will teach you all of the basics. They will show you how to use the pole spear called a Hawaiian Sling. With your instructor's guidance, you will soon be helping protect the reefs!

The lionfish is not aggressive and live in the shallow reefs making it easy to hunt them. After you dive and hunt, the fun continues as the staff will prepare the freshly caught lionfish in a typical dish of ceviche. Sit back and relax on a beach break as you enjoy this very tasty fish. After lunch, you may stay at the beach area and make your way back to the cruise terminal at your leisure and expense.

Note: Please download and print the following PADI SCUBA Dive Medical Statement (PDF document) and complete prior to participation in this Costa Maya Lionfish Hunt SCUBA Dive and Tasting Excursion.

amazing trip

Absolutely recommend this for the experienced diver. Juan, dive master, was extremely attentive and made sure we each got to try to spear a lion fish. I usually don’t dive below 30 but he took us to 80 and I was comfortable with it. (Local Operator) outfit was amazing. The scuba gear was well maintained. They reviewed each of our dive logs to ensure we had enough dives.

This was such an exciting tour and we are so glad that we made our reservations. It's hard deciding what the best part of the tour is because it was all good. It was an exciting dive to be on the hunt and felt good to be helping out mother nature a little. And then we got to eat them! You would never know that they tasted so good.

This was so much fun! We had a great time diving and helping out by hunting the Lionfish. They ARE beautiful fish, but they are so destructive. We had a really good day and caught way more than we thought. The guys were really great about handling and cleaning the fish. They made fresh ceviche that was out of this world. We will make it a point to do this again and spread the word to others who travel and dive.
