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.

A typical dive boat trip- mainly viewing sharks. Very enjoyable with a very pleasant Skipper on the dive boat. However I take issue with one of the crew members who appeared to have a racial problem. One of our party was a Spanish national and whilst speaking good english had a Spanish accent, and to this crew member he was... More

Please accept our sincere apologies that the Spanish member of your party felt isolated by one of our crew members. Our Latin and Spanish market is of such great importance to us that we have on staff two dive instructors from Spain, three additional Spanish speaking instructors and one Spanish speaking reservations agent. Many of our guests are from various... More

One of my best dive trips. From pick up from cruise ship in morning to drop off at end of the day, everything was on point. Was worried with all the people picked up from the ships with the snorkelers, snuba and discovery divers that i would be stuck on one of those big boats packed in tight with all... More

I did the 2 tank Shark Dive on October 26, 2016. It was my second Shark Dive (first one in St. Maarten). The dive was excellent. The crew were very professional, attentive and helpful. I actually had a weight problem on my first dive and they were there to solve the problem quickly. On the second dive, the shark feeding... More

We hired Stuarts at the last minute because of a cancelation at our previous stop on Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Seas. Stuart's is the official provider for Royal in Nassau. The pick up and drop of service is excellent. They were right on time and we joined others from nearby hotels and were at the dive shop in about... More

We did the shark diving on Saturday 11/12/2016 and we were off the Carnival Victory. These guys are awesome! Convenient pick up & drop off. It was a bit of a cluster when we got there, with the gear rental situation but once we got on the boat it was a short trip and we were to the dive site.... More

We went here in March and just visited again in November. Our diving was included through our hotel, but we had such a great time with Terell in March that we wanted to come back and dive with him again. Our dives took us to a nice reef and a wreck. We were given enough supervision to enforce safety, but... More

My husband booked this trip for his birthday and it could not have been more amazing! Daniel was absolutely incredible and a phenomenal dive master and shark feeder. We began the day with two AM dives, then hung out at the shop for a fantastic fish sandwich while waiting to partake in the Shark dive. The experience is beyond words... More
