Originally opened in 1979, the operation has grown to a fleet of nine dive vessels, with five of the boats over 40 feet in length. Located on the Southwest side of Nassau/New Providence Island, Stuart Cove's is in the ideal location to take advantage of the most diverse diving the Bahamas has to offer. Walls, reefs, wrecks and sharks! There something for everyone from beginner divers to experts. Holiday travelers who have never been diving before will enjoy the 3-hour "Learn To Dive Program". In this program guests will be introduced to the equipment used in the sport of diving in a swimming pool, receive an introduction into the basics of diving, and then complete their first ocean dive. All of this takes place under the supervision of a professional dive instructor. 2-tank dive trips are offered both moring and afternoon with 2-tank Shark dives offered every afternoon. Night dives are available on selected evenings with a minimum of 6 guests. Dive sites encompass steep vertical walls that plummet to 6,000 feet of depth, shallow tropical reefs, 13 different locations containing ship or airplane wrecks, and numerous locations that were used as underwater movie sets for feature films. The feature activities at Stuart Cove's for our divers is our "Extreme Shark Adventure". The Shark Adventure program is a 2-tank dive trip that takes divers on an underwater encounter with Caribbean Reef Sharks. On the first dive divers participate in a "free swim" with the sharks along a beautiful wall. On the second dive, the group forms a semi-circle on the 40-foot bottom and watch while a professional shark feeder enters the water with a box of bait. Upon reaching the bottom, the feeder begins feeding the sharks with the aid of a pole spear. To say the sharks come close to the divers is an understatement - they are everywhere! However, Stuart Cove's is not exclusively about diving. It's about sharing the underwater world with as many people as possible. Have a non-diving buddy? We have snorkel dedicated trips that take guests to a variety of shallow reef sites and even visits the sharks weather permitting. Want something more exciting? How about our personal submarines? SUB Bahamas takes adventurers on a trip around a shallow reef and allows them to snorkel as well on a custom boat. « less

I would go back in an instant. The staff was very helpful in setting up our trip before we even got there. Cathy and Charlie were very helpful on the two dives I took. Not only with guiding the dive but also with giving me tips on how I might enjoy diving more. The staff in the store were very... More

We dove with them 3 days (2 tanks dives in the mornings). I'm 58 so 2 tanks was good for me and it gave us late afternoons free to enjoy the beach, pool etc.. We had never been in the ocean diving and had little diving experience. We got the open water certifications in Alabama at Pelham but had been... More

I have been diving with Stuart Cove's a number of times, and last weekend I went on the seasonal boat to the "Lost Blue Hole" in Nassau. It was, by far, one of the most incredible dive experiences of my life! Stuart Cove's is an uber-professional, safety-conscious dive outfit that offers the full range of dive/snorkel trips, PADI courses (including... More

We had a great experience with this dive shop. It is a very large shop, which some people may or may not like. I thought our dive masters and service were great. Boats are big which means there is a bathroom aboard. They offered free pickup and drop off from our hotel. I would not hesitate to dive with them... More

Pre-booked our snorkeling trip to happen during our Carnival Cruise. It was supposed to be a 3 snorkel stop and last 4.5 hours. They packed the boat so tight, there was almost no where to sit. Each dive spot was supposed to be at least a 30 minute stop but after 15 minutes they were calling us in because they... More
