Lionfish Hunting

The lionfish is an invasive species in the waters of Curacao. They endanger the corals, because they eat all the small fish that are supposed to keep the corals healthy. That's why we organize hunting trips every day where you have the opportunity to hunt lionfish during your dive.

Protect the reef, hunt Lionfish!

Every day we go out for lionfish hunts on Curacao. We offer a variety of programs for everyone’s needs and experience. The two shore diving trips we offer are both in the morning and afternoon. So always something that fits your schedule.

Excited about joining our lionfish hunts, please do sign up in advance. Go out on this extremely fun adventure and if you are lucky, you keep your lionfish after your dive on Curacao. Would you like to practice more lionfish hunting…sign up for the PADI Invasive Lionfish Tracker Specialty.
