00:00 / 38:57


Spearfactor #028: Tim Hatler Owner of Palapas Ventana Resort

In this episode, I speak with Tim Hatler and his friends Brock and Jakob about their spearfishing resort located in La Ventana, Baja. The Resort is home of the Bluewater World Cup of Spearfishing. Tim lives down in Baja with his family full time, diving, fishing, and exploring the area. He and Brock are a wealth of knowledge for the area both above and below the sea surface. Tim shares with me how the World Cup is setup and what to expect with arriving for the first time to the resort. Personally, I am looking forward to traveling down there and experiencing the resort with my family. You can find out more information on the resort's website: 

and be sure to tell them that Bret from Spearfactor sent you! Hope to see you there.
