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.

From start to finish this company did everything they could to make the dive perfect. The dive masters were amazing and took special care to ensure my 13 year olds were comfortable and able to spend their time looking at the surroundings and not adjusting their gear. Terri and Marcus are terrific and I would recommend them to anyone, especially... More

I've gone diving more than 20 times in the past 2 years and this was by far the best. Our dive master, Tameica, was amazing. She helped us to find some of the coolest things that I've always wanted to see like shipwrecks, sea turtles, eels, sting rays, and sharks. She was so conversational and informative and made the dive... More

The dives were great. Everything else was unbelievably disorganized and poorly run. Starting from the pick-up at the hotel, the driver was 20 minutes late - and we were the first pick-up site out of 5. After a 45 minute drive in a hot bus, we arrived. We then registered and paid for our additional rental supplies. This was run... More

Had a blast diving at Stuart Cove's for the first time ever with an intro to scuba package. I learned with Katie, incredibly kind, patient, sweet and overall fun teacher who wanted me to have the best time. I felt so safe and reassured the entire time, she never left my side on the dive. Would recommend to everyone. Katie... More

Stuart’s Cove has their own private, beautiful marina. They picked us up at our resort (for no additional charge) and brought us to their marina. We went through a seamless and simple “registration” that included us signing wavers and filling out some personal information. Then, we hopped on our boat (we had gear - but this is when they give... More

We all had a great time doing the snuba, snorkel, shark outing. My husband and I had done snuba once before on our honeymoon and knew it would be great for our kids to try.
