Stuart Cove's Wall-flying
Duration: Half Day
If you are looking for extreme underwater adventure during your holiday in the Bahamas, it doesn’t get much better than this...
Explore the spectacular tropical marine diversity and natural beauty of Nassau's crystal blue waters, off the island of New Providence, whilst enjoying the ultimate adrenaline rush aboard a state-of-the-art DPV (diver propulsion vehicle). Wall Flying is Stuart Cove's latest extreme diving adventure, and one of the first dive resorts to introduce the SUB (Scenic Underwater Bubble).
On this unique SUB ride you will be seated on an underwater scooter shaped like a seahorse, and your head and shoulders will be protected in an airtight bubble so they don’t get wet. This fantastic contraption enables people who have never snorkelled before to experience the magic and mystery of the Bahamas’ exciting underwater world. You don’t even have to be able to swim! The scooters can carry one passenger each and they descend to depths of 15 feet. Trained underwater guides will be with you all the way, making sure that everyone knows where the boat is. The boat will know where you are just by following the bubbles!
Travelling as a group with a fleet of underwater scooters, this tour will enable you to explore the magnificent underwater walls formed by the Tongue of the Ocean, a deep oceanic trench that separates Andros Island and New Providence Island, stretching over 100 miles long. Travel at speeds of up to 2.5 knots underwater, and experience the adrenaline rush of exciting underwater encounters. A typical Wall Fly will enable you to travel about two miles underwater, enabling you to see much more of the ocean in a shorter period of time in comparison to scuba diving.
The beauty of the dramatic walls will undoubtedly take your breath away, with their purple tube sponges, elkhorn coral, black coral, deep-water gorgonians and a plethora of other brightly-coloured coral species. Hundreds of tropical fish and other marine species will swim around and alongside you throughout your journey, and the colours are striking. Travel to a depth you are comfortable with and look out for schools of horse-eye jacks, squirrel fish, yellowtail snappers, black and Nassau groupers, eagle rays, sea turtles and hundreds of other exotic species. Caribbean reef sharks can also often be spotted along certain areas of the wall. This fascinating ecosystem is one of the most bio-diverse habitats on the planet.
This fun and exhilarating SUB dive scooter tour will undoubtedly enhance your diving experience in the Bahamas, enabling you to explore wide areas of the ocean in a limited time. Prepare for an adventure of a lifetime.
