"Spearfishing is so much more than just catching fish!"

This movie was put together by two good friends with nothing but love for filmmaking and spearfishing. No sponsors, just passion. Consider sharing it with your best friends to help us tell our next story.

 
 
 
 

Enlightening and dark, a journey that starts as a search for closure soon turns into a life changing adventure: struggling with the frustration of not finding fish or, maybe even worse, the one that comes from losing it all to sharks, discovering a small desert town, an underwater paradise, endless perfect diving days, fishing and living with the locals. Feel the pain of silly mistakes and step in this unplanned, epic journey of taking chances.

Agua Negra is an absorbing, artistic film about spearfishing and chasing the unknown. Dock6 Films impressively shows that a small crew and budget can result in high-end production. For those with an adventurous spirit, Agua Negra’s story will draw you in. Overall, even those who are completely new to spearfishing will appreciate the film’s sense of exploration and wonder.
— Davey Braun, The Outdoor Journal
Pulling the trigger is just a small part of what it takes to get to that moment. Agua Negra captures the soul of our sport, our relationship with the ocean, other divers, and the spirit of adventure that can’t be grasped in sixty seconds on social media.
— Cameron Kirkconnell, 13 TIMES SPEARFISHING WORLD RECORD HOLDER, MASTER MARINER and SPORTSMAN
I loved it! So much better than anything else out there. Best spearfishing documentary I’ve seen. Really captures the physical and emotional ups and downs of a spearo in search of his dream fish and the relationships forged along the way.
Badass work!!
— Brandon Wahlers - US National Champion, 3 TIMES SPEARFISHING WORLD RECORD HOLDER, Riffe Team Member
Agua Negra is the first spearfishing film I’ve seen to finally show some of the emotional parts of spearfishing travel. It describes perfectly how I feel each time I travel to where I think the end of the world is. Once you are there you always find out about somewhere a bit farther, a bit more remote, and a bit more untouched. That’s what keeps us coming back.
— Ryan Myers, current USA National Champion, 5 times Spearfishing World Record Holder, USA #1 Ranked Spearfisherman
I don’t know where to begin. This has to be one of the best batches of spearfishing documenting pics I’ve seen in a long while. Congrats on the great eye!

The truest form of adventure: just pack your heart as David shows you his love for people and the sea.

The concept behind 'Agua Negra'

'Agua Negra' came from the heart and mind of two best friends that decided to change things a bit, both in and out of the water. Two friends that decided to go somewhere they've never been before and take a camera along for the ride. To go back to the roots of spearfishing, to go somewhere they didn't know if it had fish or not. To quote a friend “it is not about what you have caught, but what you could catch!” right? 'Agua Negra' is an idea nothing more nothing less. It's not here to aim to please everyone or to try to be accessible to all and it isn't here to be a cliché about keeping it real. We are not here to draw lines in sand; it's not about who's the best, or who has caught the most fish, or who dives the deepest… We couldn't care less about any of those things. We're not here to argue about trivialities, life is too short for that.

The Goal?

This is not your typical spearfishing movie, this is about a very special story and, for us, that is something we believe is a whole lot stronger. We've never set out to be anything in particular, we just wanted to make a movie that we were proud of and maybe, if we're lucky, to get people to connect with our story. We did it by documenting, quite simply, things that we believe in.
