Best Spearfishing Fishing Charters in Bahamas

Spearfishing in Bahamas

Visiting the magical Bahamas is at the top of the list for passionate globetrotters, nature lovers, and most of all, avid fishermen. They're spoiled for choice when it comes to the variety of game species to target and fishing techniques to try, and the spearfishing Bahamas has to offer is a must-do for the most adventurous anglers. 
 
There are numerous Bahamas spearfishing charters led by experienced and knowledgeable crews that specialize in guided trips. Book a trip with a Bahamas spearfishing guide and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime! 
 

What to Expect  

 
You'll get to choose from a variety of trips depending on your preferences and skill level – from half day to full day charters. Delicious Lobsters are the most common targets, but you can also go after a plethora of vibrant local species. This includes Lane Snapper, Queen Snapper, Hogfish, Grouper, Amberjack, and others. You'll also have a unique opportunity to target the infamous Lionfish, a venomous invasive species that came here from Florida in 2005 and is intent on making its home in these reefs!
 
Your hunt for all these trophies will include snorkeling or free diving. Any kind of underwater air supply is prohibited while spearfishing in the Bahamas. Spearfishing guns are also illegal, so your weapon of choice will be a Hawaiian sling. Diving instructors are present on the majority of spearfishing trips in the Bahamas, and one instructor per 4 guests is the norm. 
 
Most of the charters will take only experienced adults spearfishing, but there are also charters that specialize in working with beginners. Your captain will teach you how to use the sling before the trip and make sure your first spearfishing experience is safe, comfortable, and fun. 
 
In addition to the gear used, spearfishing in the Bahamas is strictly regulated in various other ways. One of the biggest upsides of going on a trip with an experienced local charter is that you won't have to worry about all these rules – your captain will make sure everything runs smoothly and according to the law.
 

How to Prepare 

 
Most of the Bahamas spearfishing charters will provide all the needed gear and bait. Acquiring a valid fishing license is up to the customers. In addition to fishing permits, you should also pack any food and drinks of your choosing, sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, and layered clothing. Pickups from various locations can usually be arranged with the crew for an additional cost. 
 
Now you know all about spearfishing in the Bahamas, you just have to choose your destination, book a trip with some of the many professional charters, and get ready for an adventure you’ll remember for years to come!

Yes. It does get hot so drink lots of water, take breaks inside and go on top and let the wind hit you so it feels like air conditioning. Great experience.

I fish a lot and the one thing I would recommend is to bring some ice to ice down your catch and keep it fresh. Its not so bad to not have ice on a 4 hour charter but I would definitely recommend bringing ice for the fish if you do a whole day charter.

Many of the charters are overpriced. $6-700 is fair for half day. $800 and up is ludicrous. If people stop overpaying the prices will moderate.

The only problem is we visited in early June which was sort of the rainy period in the Bahamas. I highly recommend the fishing there but I would go outside of May/June.

Weather conditions can be windy and there could be rain. Bring a raincoat just in case you encounter a little rain during your outing.

If you enjoy cruising and looking for bones, March is a good time to go. You’ll spend a lot of time looking, but when you find them, they are very concentrated. Stevie knows how to do it

Spending time with a guide helps to learn the behavior patterns of these spooky fish. Also very helpful in learning how to spot them cruising the flats.

The water gets deep closer to shore than you think. It is a short trip to deep water, a 4 hour trip is efficient. Reel that fish in quick, sharks will snag your fish before you know it.
