Spear Fishing

Can anyone tell me if there are any places along the coast where

spear fishing is possible/allowed?

Obviously, not at a crowded public beach, but possibly one of the

more remote beaches between Maro and La Herradura, perhaps?

Also, is there any requirement for a fishing license or the like?

We would greatly appreciate if payment was made before the journey.

The price?  €12pp includes a €1 gratuity for the driver.  Children under 12 can join us for 1/2 price.   Still the best value on the coast!
Early booking is recommended if you like a particular place, as seat numbers are allocated on a first come, first served basis.  Plenty to see in Gibraltar apart from the shopping!
