Going to be in Nassau in the end of July 2018. Been trying to find a way to do some freediving and spearing while I'm there and striking out for the most part. Anyone have any recommendations? Found one place that seems familiar with spearing, but hard to justify chartering a boat for just myself. Anyone going to be there that would want to join?

oms diver, I don't know much about diving in Nassau but the out islands have great diving/spearing. There is easy shore diving with nice fish and a great spear charter Reel Addictive charters on Long Island. I might be interested in coming down in July for some free diving and spearing. Let me know if you find anything out about Nassau. Victor

Wish I could go to the outer islands. Wife likes the action. I like the off-the-beaten track. If I'm going to leave her behind and go dive, I have to park her where she wants to be!

Talked with Born Free Charters today. The owner is a spearo, and he said he could set me up with his small boat and a captain who is experienced with it. I'd have to dive alone, though, which I'm not looking to do. Unless i caught him on a slow day, then he'd go along with me. Said he doesn't get in the water as much as he used to, so he'd love to go if it worked out. I'm checking on costs, so I'll report back when I know more. I'll be there July 21-29, so I'll be pretty flexible on when to go.

I'll be in Nassau at the end of June. I booked with someone I found on instagram who is also an underwater photo/video guy. I'll be doing a half day off Nassau and should get some great shots. It's not cheap though. Boat $550, Guide/Photo/Video $650.

Wanted to post some of the pics from the trip, like I promised.

Andre was great to spear with all day.
