What to expect on the Lobster / Lionfish Hunt:

In the pristine waters surrounding St Thomas, there are lots of delicious Caribbean spiny lobster hiding away under reef ledges and rocks. In order to catch them, you have to know where to look. From our years of experience, we know all of the best spots and look forward to sharing our secrets with you. When you go out with one of our experienced guides, you will have the best chances of catching these guys.

As for lionfish, these fish are invasive and can be found throughout warm-water ecosystems across the globe. They are highly invasive and quite delicious! We bring the equipment necessary to properly remove these fish while on our lobster dive. Not only will you be fully immersed in the excitement of catching and witnessing this rush, but you will also get to reap the benefits of eating them the Caribbean way! Photos and videos can be taken throughout your trip (both underwater and above) so you have something to share with friends and family as well!
