Stuart Cove's Night Dive
Duration: Half Day
Scuba diving in the daytime during a holiday in the Bahamas is an exhilarating experience, but a night dive is something else. You may not have the visibility of the clear turquoise waters, or be able to see the vivid colours of the tropical fish and coral reefs in the same way, but a night diving excursion offers a magic and beauty all of its own.
This exciting night tour, led by leading dive resort Stuart Cove’s, will take you diving off the coast of New Providence Island to a nearby shipwreck. These one-tank boat trips can be scheduled to go out any night of the week. The only requirement is that night dives must have a minimum of six divers for the trip before it departs.
Experience the thrill, adventure and mystery of diving once the sun has set. At night, the sea is transformed, creating a truly memorable experience – especially when the moon is bright. Explore the unknown and see the Bahamas’ majestic underwater world in a new light – literally. Your dive master will provide you up with an underwater diving light which will reveal the intense colours of the coral reefs and the fascinating activity of its nocturnal marine life. Many nocturnal creatures that cannot be seen during the day come out of their hiding places at night, creating a whole new underwater experience. These creatures have different behavioural patterns to those visible during the day.
Look out for species such as Caribbean spiny lobsters, which come out of their holes at night to explore the reefs and scavenge on prey such as small molluscs and other tiny marine organisms. You will also see trumpet fish, squirrel fish, eels, octopus, crawfish, tiny worms and many other nocturnal creatures. You may even be lucky enough to witness the magical scene of bioluminescence, where living organisms such as plankton light up as the result of a chemical reaction. If you are in the right location, you may also be able to get close to the sea creatures that actually sleep at night, such as sea turtles and tropical fish, many of which move too quickly to study closely during the day.
This alluring, mysterious and slightly eerie night dive tour is perfect for the adventurous. Exploring the fascinating flora and fauna of this majestic underwater world by moonlight will give you plenty of fantastic memories to take away with you.

Bob Marley might have been one of the most famous Jamaicans that ever lived but the Bahamas has also been a special part of his family’s life. The family had an eight-bedroom family home in a former governor’s mansion on the north side of the island, which has now been transformed into a luxury boutique resort and spa for holidaymakers by Bob Marley’s wife.
