The Last of the Blue Water Hunters

The Last of the Blue Water Hunters

This is the extraordinary account of a handful of men who made their way into the last wilderness, armed with only their courage and driven by an insatiable curiosity. From his early beginnings on the island of Hawaii, the author progresses to his apprenticeship with the "blue water tribe" in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico during the 1960's. There he learns to stalk the powerful game fish that inhabit the deep waters. After 20 years of blue water hunting, he returns to the island of Catalina where he fulfills his dream of living off the sea using only a speargun to sustain himself. The climax of this book is an incredible expedition to the far reaches of the vast Pacific in search of the giant blue fin tuna. The Last of the Blue Water Hunters is also about the sea, as viewed not by the scientist, but by the hunter, who sees it with a sharp, all-encompassing eye, exposing the reader to an ocean world never seen by the majority of divers.
