Pristine offshore islands and atolls, uncrowded clear blue water, Wahoo, Black Marlin, Giant Trevally, Yellowfin Tuna, King Mackerel, and Dogtooth Tuna; the Open Water Extreme Adventures team will take you on a spearfishing adventure of a lifetime

Welcome to Extreme Blue Water Spearfishing

Open Water Extreme Adventures (OWEA) is a relatively new company established in Tanzania, East Africa, in 2009. Owned and run by Eric Allard and Nigel Spencer, arguably the two most experienced and accomplished spearfishers in East Africa, OWEA aims to provide you with the best possible adrenaline filled blue water spearfishing adventure along the East African coast.  Quirimbas Islands Charters Limitada (QICL) is a new company registered in Mozambique.  Nigel and Eric formed the company to run the Mozambique trips and invited old friend and colleague Stephen Griffiths to join in the new venture.  Whether in Tanzania or Mozambique, rest assured that OWEA and QICL will ensure you have a trip of a life time, under or above water.

Despite it’s fame for world class game sanctuaries and the World Heritage Sites such as (among many more) the Ngoro Ngoro Crater, the Serengeti Plains, the Masai Mara National Park, and the Zanzibar Archipelago, it is little known that the East African Coast, from northern Kenya to northern Mozambique, is a prime destination for blue water hunters.  At OWEA and QICL mainly cater for small groups of avid blue water hunters, no more than four at a time, who seek to select prize blue water fish in pristine unspoiled locations.  With a lifetime of spearfishing experience in East African waters, Eric, Nigel, and Stephen will guide you to spectacular remote places along the Swahili Coast in search of Black Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Giant Trevally, King Mackerel, Dogtooth Tuna, the mighty Dogtooth Tuna and more.

However, we are not just about spearfishing.  Unlike any other company around the world specializing in spearfishing, both in Tanzania and Mozambique we also offer trips for the whole family to the region’s land based treasures.  Join eco-friendly spearfishing trips to historical locations like Zanzibar and Kilwa, as well as tailor made itineraries that include visits to some of the world’s most spectacular places and landscapes; the Selous Game Reserve, the Serengeti Plains, the Masai Mara, the Ngoro Ngoro Crater, Mount Kilimanjaro, and much more.

“Eric and his team from OWEA run a very efficient and  professional charter business, from when we met at the airport to when I left a week later I felt as though I was part of the family. With Eric’s experience and extensive knowledge of the areas we dived, we were “on the money” every drift! With OWEA conservation policies and strict catch restrictions, this ethical business sets a great example for other charter operators in East Africa and is a great asset to the Tanzanian fisheries, Asante Sana!.”   Alistair Louw, Extreme Spearfishing Encounters, SA
