Stuart Cove's Dive
Duration: Half Day
The Bahamas is renowned for boasting some of the best snorkelling and diving spots in the world, offering beautiful coral reefs, intriguing caverns and shipwrecks, dramatic sea walls and an abundance of marine life in the warm, crystal clear waters that surround over 700 tropical islands in the Atlantic Ocean. This exciting underwater adventure will enable you to discover the majestic treasures of the sea with one of the Bahamas’ premier dive resorts.
Your diving tour will be led by Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas, a leading dive resort which offers exhilarating dives for divers and snorkelers of all levels of experience. Stuart Cove’s diving expertise has led him to work with TV and film crews on numerous documentaries and films, including James Bond films such as “The World Is Not Enough” and “Jaws”, as well as “Speed 2”, “Deep Blue Sea” and many more blockbusters. This two-tank dive is catered for certified divers who want to explore the walls, reefs, and wrecks surrounding New Providence Island.
Your first dive is a beautiful sea wall, which is a wonderful experience for both new and advanced divers. On average, the walls begin at 40 feet, although some are deeper. Your dive master will lead the dive to 80 feet for approximately 30 minutes, although this is flexible because you and your diving buddy may prefer to stay up on the shallower ledge or plan your dive a bit deeper.
Each dive site along the wall is different and unique in its own way, and the natural beauty is striking. Many of the walls are encrusted with vivid purple tube sponges, black coral, elkhorn coral, deep-water gorgonians and a myriad of other brightly-coloured coral species. You will also see an abundance of marine life, including hundreds of tropical fish such as clown fish, damsel fish, parrot fish and angel fish, as well as sea turtles, upside-down jellyfish, octopus, eagle rays, snake eels and many more exciting sea creatures. The splendour and diversity of the Bahamas’ coral reefs and sea walls will take your breath away.
Your second dive will either be a shallow reef or wreck dive. There are a vast number of natural and artificial reefs in the waters surrounding New Providence Island, each offering different coral formations and beautiful aquatic life. You may get the chance to explore a 100 foot freighter in 50 feet of water, or perhaps one of the famous James Bond wrecks in slightly shallower water. The specific dive site will be decided on the actual day, depending on weather conditions and preferences of the people on the tour.
