Home / Guides / Spearfishing hotspots

Besides coming home with the freshest sea food medley the planet can offer, one of the best things about spearfishing is exploring the beautiful coastline of the UK.

However all too often we get comfortable with our local hunting spots and forget the amazing aspect of ocean exploration; instead opting to stick to what we know and burying that sense of adventure we once embraced so much. This area on spearfishing.co.uk is aimed at rekindling that sense of adventure and exploration by sharing those amazing spots with other spearos. While we’re not looking to expose all our cherished secret spots, it’s important that we encourage fellow spearos to keep that fire alive!

This is also aimed at new spearos who need some safe places to get started while they find their feet.

Help your community! We are always looking to add new places to help out new spearos and pros alike. So get involved, write up a location and send it through to support the sport and help it grow.
