Stuart Cove's Afternoon Snorkel Adventure

Duration: Half Day

stuart cove's afternoon snorkel adventure

The Bahamas is renowned for its world-class snorkeling and diving opportunities, where lush coral reefs and an abundance of marine life can be found in warm, crystal clear waters. Over 700 islands make up this tropical archipelago, offering unlimited choices for snorkelling, but some of the best spots can be found off the coasts of Paradise Island and New Providence Island, near the capital Nassau.

On this exciting adventure in the Atlantic Ocean, where the Bahamas is actually located, you will get the chance to snorkel along the South Western side of New Providence Island, along pristine coral reefs that are teeming with colourful tropical fish such as angelfish and butterfly fish. You will also see other fascinating marine species such as eagle rays, spiny lobsters and sea turtles.

Your tour will be led by Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas, one of Nassau’s leading dive resorts. Stuart Cove’s diving expertise has led him to work with TV and film crews on numerous documentaries and films, including “The World Is Not Enough”, among other Bond films; “Spy Kids”, “Speed 2” and “Deep Blue Sea”.

This particular snorkelling trip will take you up to three different locations in one day, including reefs and shipwrecks. If conditions are good, and your fellow snorkelers are up to the challenge, you will also get the opportunity to snorkel with Caribbean Reef Sharks.

Your first location in a beautiful shallow reef will enable you to relax in a majestic underwater world. Feed the fish and watch large schools swimming up close and all around you. Marvel at the different colours, shapes and sizes. This is one memory that will stay with you long after your holiday ends.

t the second location you will visit a mysterious shipwreck, which could either be a 200-foot tanker, which was sunk as an artificial reef in 2000 and rests in only 40 feet of water, or one of the famous wrecks used in the James Bond films "For Your Eyes Only" and "Never Say Never Again".

Finally, if your fellow snorkelers are brave enough and weather permits, the optional third snorkeling site will lead you to exhilarating, shark-infested waters. A bait box will be lowered into the water by a professional shark feeder, which these magnificent, graceful creatures will then circle around. Those who are able to overcome their fears can snorkel above the Caribbean Reef Sharks and observe their activities below. If fear sets in, just remember that the sharks are more interested in the bait than you. However, if you can’t bring yourself to join in, you can still observe these fascinating creatures from the boat without getting wet.

Regarded as one of the most exciting snorkelling adventures in the world, this trip is the perfect addition to a holiday in the Bahamas − for those who are brave enough, anyway!
