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.

While our group didn't add the actual shark feeding, the dives where the divers speared lionfish and the sharks came around were amazing. 2 other wreck dives were great as well. The staff with Stuart Cove did a great job and made sure that we had a great time, specifically Phil, Rudy and Erin. The boats were in good shape... More

Dive Master Phil and Captain Rudy took our group on an awesome two day, 8-tank odyssey. Ask to dive the reefs,wrecks and walls that are a little further offshore and to the southeast where the coral is still in very good shape. Lots and lots of tame reef sharks. Fun for all levels of divers. Phil, Phil, Phil...

Couldn't have had a better time. Knocked out 2 days of diving with this group and could not be happier. Day 01 I did the AM 2 tank Dive with Pascal and our Dive Master (who's name I cannot remember sadly, but he was awesome and very thoughtful). Day 02 we did the Shark Adventure dive at Shark Arena.

I did 6 dives here. 4 shark adventure dives and a two tank dive one morning. The shark adventure dives were fantastic. Neal and Vanaz did a fantastic job. Neal provided a very interactive shark feed experience. The crew also was very informative and helpful. Tyson and Pia were also great and helpful on the previous day. Thank you all... More

Took two certification classes (OW for a teen and AOW for adult). Instructors were exceptional (cheers to Terri, Dan, Katie, and Shawn) and very much on top of things. Outstanding dive sites with many wrecks, Sharks, Rays, turtles, lobster, and tons of tropical fish. Prices are anything but cheap, but still worth it. Also had a Discover Scuba class for... More

We were in Nassau as a one day stop on the carnival cruise - we booked directly through Stuart Cove's website - which was cheaper, the free shuttle picked us up promptly at 815 for the AM trip. The directions given were clear and we filled out the paperwork on the way as to save time once we got to... More

I had a great 2 tank PM dive led by Terrell. The dives were great! Once you get on the boat, the dive sites are about a 10 minute boat ride away. Super convenient. The rental shop set me up with gear in about 5 minutes, and once you get it on the boat the crew takes care of everything.... More

Just recently came back from a discover scuba trip with Stuart Cove's. Gotta say it was the best part of my vacation. My dive instructors, Gabby and Kate, were tops. Two thumbs up and five stars to Stuart Cove's and Gabby and Kate. Going to get certified and go back

Made a last minute decision to try the SUB experience from Stuart Cove's Dive. Was a great experience with very friendly crew and a lot of fun. Highly recommend this as something different to do. Requires no experience with diving at all.
