    WHAT WE MAY CATCH

    Depending on your fishing level, you can catch small fish such as lionfish, parrotfish, lobsters, seabreams, etc., while spearfishing in shallow waters (1-10 meters). If you are a more experienced diver and can reach depths between 10-35 meters, your targets will include different kinds of groupers (dusky, white, golden), amberjacks, dentex, and seabreams.
