Lionfish Hunting

Quick Details

Certified Diver

Hunt invasive predators to protect the ecosystem!

The lionfish is a carnivorous fish native to the Indo-Pacific that is now an invasive species in the Gulf of Mexico.

The population of lionfish dramatically increased in the past few years due to a lack of natural predators.

Lionfish hunting helps control the number of lionfish that threaten the existence of other species and compete with the native marine creatures for limited resources.

In this excursion, you will not only hunt these invasive predators to protect the ecosystem but also have fun and enjoy the beauty of Cancún.
