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.

We've gone diving several times before and were a little disappointed with Stuart's Cove. On both sides, the dive line was unanchored and floating right where people needed to take their giant stride. The boat was also anchored in such a way that every time that it aggravated the waves' movements and made it really hard to get back on... More

I went to Stuart's cove on the 4th of February and it was perfect. Everyone was extremely friendly, especially Renee our Padi instructor. My boyfriend and I did the discover scuba tour because I was not certified. When we first got there we watched a short instructional video and then went out on the boat. The other two couples canceled... More

Completed the Shark dives, this was a great experience. Two easy dives surrounded by Caribbean reef and nurse sharks. This interaction was first class with experiences shark wranglers who got the sharks so close they touched you and pushed past you. I have dived with sharks on other parts of the world and other oceans but never have I had... More

I give this establishment a five start rating for several reasons. My husband and I traveled to the Bahamas upon a Carnival cruise for our anniversary. We are, or I should say he is, an avid diver and I dive with him. We have been diving since 2006 but I still sometimes get nervous. We dove with Stuarts Cove and... More

We wanted to dive on Nassau and dive to some specific sites (Thunderball wreck, etc). We went there to check and were told that the captain on the boat decides on a day-by-day basis where they will dive, but he will not decide before the boat departs, but only at a dive-site as such. It would also not be possible... More

My girlfriend and I did the resort dive at Stuart Cove and had Renee as our dive guide. She was friendly and helpful. It was my girlfriends first time diving with tanks and Renee took the extra time to help her get comfortable with the feeling of breathing underwater. The spot they took us to dive was great, crystal clear... More

The Nassau SUB Adventure was really three adventures in one. We were picked up at the Cruise Ship Port and driven to the Stuart Cove's Dive facility. Their facility is on the the other side of Nassau from the Cruise Ship Port. So, we got to see a great deal of the island on both the trip there and the... More
