Government Stalling On Jetski Approval
Alexys Sears, of Tsunami Watersports, has accused the Bahamian government of discriminating against its own citizens as he attempts to get the four-stroke WaveRunner approved by authorities. Although being rented by five cruise ships in The Bahamas, the modified watercraft is still prohibited to local operators.
Mr Sears said he made an application to the Port Controller and the Ministry of the Environment in 2010 but after numerous meetings and exchanges he has still not received an answer.
“The ministry eventually approved it, but the Port just won’t sign off on it.”
