In this two-tank certified scuba dive excursion, you'll explore for a while, and remember for a lifetime.
After being picked up on the pier for your Nassau excursion, you will transfer to the dive shop, 45 minutes away. After filling out required paperwork, you will suit up and set off over the beautiful blue waters of the Bahamas. Your first dive is along one of our many beautiful walls, beginning between 40 and 60 feet, and dropping 6,000 feet into the Tongue of the Ocean. Your dive master will lead the dive to 80 feet for 30 minutes, although we are flexible for those with computers or for buddies preferring to stay shallow. Each site along the wall is different and unique in its own way. The wall is perfect for both new and advanced divers. Your second dive is either a shallow reef, a movie site, or one of 12 other wrecks. There are many beautiful reefs, each with different coral formations and fish life. You may explore a 100-foot freighter, the famous James Bond wreck, or the Cessna used in the filming of Jaws.
Please Note: Tanks and weights are included in the price. BCs, Regs, etc. are available for rent at the dive shop.

Stuarts Cove did a good job. I'd use them again. Keep all receipts if you pre-pay cruise excursions and know what all is included in the price you paid as when we arrived at their shop they tried to double charge us for the tank and regulator.

Thoroughly professional operation, which is most important with scuba, but we didn't go to the wall mentioned in the dive description. The two sites we did visit were pleasant, but not special.
