Default Free diving

I got here in November from Cali and started fishing and hunting around the area. I am trying to get into spearfishing here. I free dive and am used to spearfishing all over southern Cali but I don't have a boat big enough for open water here. Is there any decent spots for shore diving or anyone that wants a dive partner. I have no problem splitting expenses. I just want to get back in the water. Any help is greatly appreciated

You shouldn't have much trouble getting a dive buddy, there are several freedivers on the forum now days. Welcome to the forum!

Spearfishing is allowed from the beach/jetties in Alabama. Can actually hold some good fish at times too. Pm me if you ever wanna make the trip over, we dive a all the time. Freedive only

Default Freediving newbie

I am interested in more freediving but I need to increase my Kahona size to be comfortable floundering around on the surface in open water. Being amongst others seems to help. Grew up SCUBA but like the simplicity of freediving.
I'd be open to taking you out wherever you're comfortable going in a 21 ft cc. PM me your contact # and we'll discuss setting something up.

I am in East Milton and wonder where in Alabama would be a jetty I could find close to Pensacola to take my kids and do a snorkel dive for spearing a few fish. I'll have to get an Alabama license also. I wonder what that costs a Florida resident? thanks, Mike

If your just looking to snorkel Panama City and Destin have a few good jetties to dive on. Now to hunt Alabama point is a hot spot!

Now as to navydoc, there are a couple of us in the area. I'll be home may1st and I'll be looking to get in the water a few times if the water is looking good. Keep in touch. A lot of us are on spearboard.com as well.

I have some goggles, fins and a snorkel coming in the mail right now, and i'm researching a good speargun to buy. If you ever need someone to snipe some fishies with hit me up. I've got all summer to do nothing but hunt.
