Shore DivingWhen you enter the water from a beach to spearfish, you are shore diving. Typically done in areas that do not have large waves.
Boat DivingBoats & kayaks can be used to access off shore reefs or ocean structure for spearfishing. In the Gulf of Florida cobia and grouper are hunted and caught around oil rigs.
Blue Water HuntingConsidered the elite method of spearfishing, Blue Water Hunting is done far offshore and can involve drifting. The boat will drop several divers, let them drift with the current for several miles, and later pick them and their catch back up.
