For some in Arica, Chile, spear fishing is a way of life.  Some say it is easier to catch fish with a fishing pole.  Any way one views spear fishing, they agree that it is fun, challenging and pumps the blood.  On our outing, we were lucky to be with The Champion Spear fisherman in Chile.  His expertise is enough to keep entire villages fed along the sea front.

The south beach area in Arica, Chile offers great even tides, calmer waters and a bottom depth of no more than 20 meters.

A two hour session can render a good amount of fish and seafood.  We were lucky to have a good haul.
