St. Croix Lion Fish Hunt
Lion fishing in St. Croix is really a unique experience! Not only is it a cool scuba adventure, you are helping preserving the ocean.
Lion fish are an invasive species in the Caribbean, and we want to do our part to control their populations to help other species survive.
This adventure begins with a 30-45 minute informal classroom session in which we will discuss the lion fish problem in the Caribbean, the ethics of responsible underwater hunting, and the techniques, equipment, and risks involved in eradicating the invading lion fish species.
Following the classroom portion of your charter, your dive guide will take you into the pool for some practice! You'll go over adjusting buoyancy for hunting, approaching the fish, setting up your shot, and finally taking the fish. Then, you will go out and start having fun! You will gear up and swim out to Davis Bay Wall where we'll search for and hopefully bag some lionfish. Keep your eyes peeled, they can be hard to spot!
