Ocean Strike Team loves to help you put together a lionfish hunting Expedition! In fact, that is the very thing we do and have the exact trip you are asking for. We have been running lionfish eco-tours since 2014.
This is a 3 day hunting trip. Typical schedule is be in Pensacola by 5pm on Thursday night. We will do paperwork, have a brief class on lionfish (the what and why’s ), safety, and weekend itinerary. Then we dive Fri-Sat-Sunday. They will be 2-tank dives for lionfish. On Saturday night, we will go to a local restaurant where they will cook up what we catch – gourmet style! Lionfish is amazing to eat, and it tastes even better when YOU shot it! We provide all the polespears and zookeepers for your group to use.
We have a guide in the water with you and a divemaster from the boat that is a Lionfish expert as well. We will break off into groups of 3 and our experts will be right with you to give you tips and tricks to shoot better, help spot, and make sure your group is getting plenty of lionfish! (Which we usually don’t have that many problems getting lionfish! We average about 100 per boat each dive)
As a trip leader, you only responsibility is to come down and have fun! You don’t need to have any specific knowledge or experience hunting. We take care of all that for you! We can also help you get the hotels set up, and we take care of all logistics for tanks/weights, fills, etc. You just need to bring your scuba gear. We can also help you increase profit by recommending gear and continuing education classes you can sell to prepare your group for a better experience.
