I've seen them at Melones, Dakity, Melena, Soldado, Fulladosa, and several other places. They ranged from depths of 3 feet to 40 feet. All I saw while snorkeling. Some where just a single fish. Others were in groups of 3-4 at most. While snorkelling Fullados, I came across an underwater structure of plastic bakery crates that had 4 lionfish just hanging out inside. They would have all been dinner for a spearfisher.
Here's a map I made showing some of the places we snorkeled. We used kayaks to get to Melena and Soldado, leaving from Fulladosa.
I haven't spear fished in Culebra yet, but our next trip down it will happen. Hopefully the spear in hand won't send the lionfish into hiding.
