Description: Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas is Nassau's leading full service dive centre...
Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas is Nassau's leading full service dive centre. 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.

Best tour EVER

The captain and the crew were very helpful in the safety of snorkeling and snuba. They made the 6 hour trip adventourous.

The experience offered by Stuart's cove was awesome! The captain and the divers were informative and friendly. We did 3 snorkeling dives 2 were around reef and the last was a shark dive! Absolutely worth every penny we spent! The cost was vey inexpensive. I would recommend this dive shop to anyone!

Took a ride on their under water subs. What a great way to see the reefs in the Bahammas. My daughter and wife had a great time. Staff friendly and helpful. Would do it again!

Stuart Cove's Diving is one of the best dive experiences we have ever had. Our divemaster (Georgi) and our Captain (Perry) were extremely personable and attentive throughout our three-day (two tank per day dives- including the Shark Dive- which is not to be missed). The facility is top-notch. It was a pleasure to meet Stuart, who made it a point... More

We did a half day snorkel and SNUBA tour which took us to 3 different locations. The reefs were some of the best I've ever seen! I wish that the group was smaller as I felt like they were trying to pack as many people onto the boat as possible, but I understand that is the best way to make... More

Don't miss the best snorkeling and thrill of swimming above the reef sharks while they are being fed. Great attentive staff and well versed in area.

We booked this at The Atlantis counter in the Bahamas. Talked to a couple of Stuart cove reps and told them clearly we were first time snorkelers. No prior experience snorkeling and they said oh that's fine. It turned out to be a pretty good experience and our 10-year old had no problem jumping off the boat and loved it.... More

We participated in the snorkel tour, which was definitely worth the money. Our bus picked us up from our downtown hotel and proceeded to take us directly to Stuart's Cove. This took around 20 minutes. Upon our arrival, we were taken to the check in area which was well organized. We immediately boarded our boat and were off on our... More

Chose to get my open water diver certification from Stuart's Cove. I did the E-learning course before I got to the island. The bus arrived mostly on time each day. It's a bit of a drive from cable beach but the bus is fairly comfortable and not a bad ride. Philip or "Phil" was my instructor for all the confined... More
