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.

Everything went smooth. Our dive master was helpful and friendly. The dive was awesome. We booked through the cruise line & the had transportation ready and waiting for us. Getting back they had constant transportation dropping everyone off where they needed to go.

Can I book a 2-tank dive 20th november and be picked up from the Carnival cruise ship? What dives sites are included in the 2-tank trip? The ship arrives at 8am and leaves 5pm. I am a new open water diver and have very little experience - besides my PADI certification earlier this year I never dove. How big will the groups be and is it possible to make the dive master my dive buddy? How many dive masters will be there? I have to go down into the water very slowly because last time when diving a had a baro-trauma from going down to quick - so I am worried that it will be a large group and I am pressured to keep up with them and can't take my time when going down. Also, will there be the opportunity to rent Go Pros or is there someone taking pictures? Do you have diving classes with prescription (-2,5)? I have my certification number with me in email form but I don't have the actual 'paper' - is that enough? Thanks for answering my questions
