Re: No more spearfishing in the bahamas?
You should have done your research before you spent all that money. Spear fishing is only allowed for citizens on most Caribbean Islands. Hawaiian slings are allowed, in some places, but you'd have to gold plate one to spend $250.00 on one.
I've never heard of a permit to spearfish with a guide. Independent SCUBA diving is illegal so SCUBA diving requires a guide on many islands. I should think (don't know) that any rules regarding either of these could be found on the sport divers' magazines web sites.
I must admit, I really miss the days when in an hour or so I could spear up enough fish for a half dozen or more yachts in an anchorage to have a fish fry.
