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.

We had a great SUB trip. Lashon and the crew were helpful and very friendly. The SUBs took a few minutes to get used to but gave you a very unique and cool experience. Saw tons of fish. Long bus ride but worth the wait.

Can I book the shark dive in late May 2017 and be picked up from outside the Norwegian Sky cruise ship. The Norwegian Sky is in Nassau on May 28th (I think) I would like to do a 2 tank dive with Stuarts Cove and have the Shark Dive if possible.

Yes, you can book a Shark dive as we run them every afternoon. To be sure our schedule works with your cruise ship please give us a call at (800)879-9832 or (954)524-5755 and we would be happy to help.

Does the scuba 1/2 day include usage of a BCD? Or does it really only include the actual tank, weights, and belt?

Hi, besides their 'signature' shark feed dive, what other good unforgettable dive sites do they take divers to? Does Stuart Cove go to 'The Lost Blue Hole'? What is a good wreck Stuart Cove goes to that has nice swim through? Thanks.
