About Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas
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.

Husband and I did snuba with Brittany. It was a really cool experience. It was really neat also because I normally have issues with anxiety and Brittany was really good with making sure I was always ok. After tue first locstion it was near because we got to snorkle at the second location as well. Then we got to get into the water with sharks. It was such a neat experience and Im so happy I did it. I would highly recommend.

We did this as a Carnival shore excursion and we couldn't have asked for a better crew and snorkeling. Kenja was so helpful to the inexperienced snorkelers in our group and was friendly and had a great attitude while doing it! We were treated to a great boat ride with some highlights on shore pointed out during the trip and then a 2 reef snorkel. Very clean boat and equipment. Tons of fish! It was truly a trip highlight.

I LOVE this it was the best part of my trip to The Bahamas. On my bucket list is visiting all the underwater statues by Jason Taylor one is located in the Bahamas . I told the captain Wendell and he made it the first stop. Now I haven't been swimming in years so I was out there having a hard time.lol who books a snorkelling trip and can't swim?! just shows how bad I wanted to see this statue and the sharks . Sam was one of my instrustors and when I say he saved me with the quick swimming lessons. I went from flapping around with a vest and the lifeguard ring to 30 mins in the water just flippers and goggles. Tarnesha was my other instructor and between her and sam they were so patient when it came to my son who's energy level is on 1000, lol. They both took turns helping me swim and get great shots and watching my son who one minute wanted to swim and the next wasn't with it and rather be on the boat. the tour overall was something I really needed to experience and the price was a steal. Also they picked me up and dropped me off at my hotel . great time I will be going back again

Did this excursion off Carnival. Easy to meet up and leave from port. It was a nice boat trip out to the reefs. Kenja gave an informative tour of the houses we passed. The crew Meeko and Azan were really helpful with the equipment. There were a couple people that hadn't snorkeled before who had a great time. We received a good amount of time in the water. Lots of colorful fish. Both reefs were mostly dead, but that has been common to my experience at snorkel sites. The coral that was living was interesting. Both reefs are close together.
