Spearfactor #048: Tim Hatler 2022 Bluewater World Cup

Today on Spearfactor, I speak with Tim Hatler from Palapas Ventana Spearfishing Resort in Baja. Tim also hosts the Bluewater World Cup which is occurring this year between July 10-14. We chat about what makes this event so special and get into the details of how it is run by the resort. Palapas Ventana also has several liveaboards trips to various destinations on both sides of Baja. Tim and I discuss  the fishing potential at some of those destinations. If you want more information on the resort or are interested in participating in the Bluewater World Cup 2022, contact Tim at or check out their IG page @palapasventana_fish
