The Turneffe Island Resort, located about 35 miles off the coast of Belize, is offering a weekly Lionfish hunt where guests can spear the invasive species and bring them back to the resort for dinner.

To participate, guests must take an introduction course on how to use a Hawaiian sling spear at the resort. After that, they practice on coconuts before they go into the open water.

The Lionfish hunt program is on Wednesday afternoons and a special dive is dedicated to this. The fee is US$10.00/9.09 Euros per spear for a seven-night stay.

Guests who don’t scuba dive can also be on the snorkeling package, and once they get the intro course done, they’re able to hunt Lionfish on the snorkelling trips.
