Mako LaPaz with Dano Krahling



DATES: october 23-29, 2018
COST:  DIVERS - $950 by check/$990 with PayPal
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: May 30, 2018

DFAC has been invited to join our good friend Dano Krahling of MAKO Spearguns in LaPaz next October 2018. Explore Espiritu Santo island, El Bajo and other structures for Wahoo, Tuna and various pelagic and reef fish. There will be most likely a trip to the pacific side for various pelagic fish on one of our dive days.Our guides Gonzalo Mata and Patrick Puhlmann of Baja Adventure Co are very familiar with this area for spearfishing.


As the divers spend 4 days of spearfishing, 70% of  their catch that is harvested is donated to the local orphanage in LaPaz. The balance of the harvested fish is used to supplement dinners for the team and then participants are also encouraged to take the remaining fish back to share with their own families and friends.


Diving For A Cause is welcomed with many opportunities of giving back to the local community. This recipe of spearfishing and giving back has been successful with DFAC and we have no doubt that it will be here as well.



This is a very generous subsidized week of 7 days and 6 nights with 4 full days of spearfishing, lodging and meals for $950 for a team of 8 participants. Our departure day October 29, Monday, we will visit the school in the morning.

So plan your departure flight on October 29, for after 3 pm please.


Included is:

1. Spearfishing for 4 full days with 2 boats running each day.

2. Housing for 6 nights, courtesy of our host.

3. Simple meals for breakfast and lunch and in the evening, dining with local restaurant hospitality utilizing the 30% of the harvested fish to help supplement the meal..
