Spearfishing in Búzios, Brazil

If you see a bright colored buoy floating in the water off the coast of Búzios, chances are good there are scuba divers below the surface or perhaps spearos, the Portuguese word for snorkelers who spearfish. The latter shore dive. This means they walk into the water with only their goggles, fins, snorkel and spear. They swim along the drop-offs where fish tend to conjugate. This guy was proud to display his full stringer. Perhaps this is no surprise. The word Búzios means diver in Portuguese. If this sport seems a bit challenging, consider chartering a fishing boat. Catches often include grouper, snapper and jacks.
