SC was recommended to me by my dad who used them to go scuba diving there while in port for a Carnival cruise earlier this year. I called them last Friday before boarding the ship to in Jacksonville, FL. They were very nice and put me down for a reservation and said they'd have a free bus ride available at the port in Nassau, which is about a 35 minute ride to Stuart's Cove. They were there and we left within 10 minutes of getting off the boat, Myself and my fiancee decided to try the SNUBA (not SCUBA), because I have my dive certification but she does not. She had never been snorkeling prior to this but I don't care for it myself after diving. Their SNUBA service is a great deal. It was $99/person and that included a "dive", a snorkel, and a chance to swim with reef sharks. They feed sharks in a certain spot daily and were able to attract them while also keeping them away from us in the water. I told my guide Anwar that I wasn't expecting to snorkel and he said that he'd let us do both dives using the SNUBA set-up.
As I said, prior to this, my fiancee had no previous experience like this and was somewhat nervous. This was not an issue though, thanks to our GREAT guide. Anwar made her feel completely comfortable and did not rush her when she struggled to go under or adjust to the regulator. I cannot express how thankful I am for his patience. There was definitely an opportunity for her to panic and have these type of adventures ruined forever but she was able to enjoy it because of the HELPFUL staff at Stuart's Cove. If you go here, they will do all they can to make you feel comfortable and welcome.
They have a nice shop and dock area. They have several boats and several other "excursions" that they offer including sub rentals. We went out on a 46' dive boat even thought there were only 8 of us customers on it (and the other 6 were snorkeling). I couldn't believe the service we received, It was AMAZING. I recommend this place to anyone that is visiting Nassau via Carnival or Atlantis or any means. I will be going back to them every time I am in Nassau in the future. This was the highlight of my trip.
I recommend SC for singles, couples, and families with young children as well. The prices are fair, especially when you consider the number of people you'd be on Carnival's crowded excursions, at a much higher price.
