The staff was efficient and welcoming. The dives were well organized - I liked the fact that there was no pressure to dive if one did not feel like it - especially with the sharks. Only drawback was the ride to and from the dive site - both drivers need lessons in how to drive without causing the passengers anxiety!
It was also a nice tour of the island, however, the drivers were not very informative, they could have at least said something for the 45 min. drive.But the tour on the boat to see the shark was awesome. My 8 and 9 year old kids will never forget it!
the trip was GREAT!!! Stuart Cove is just an incredible operation. My ONLY upset was our pick up time was 815 outside the cruise terminal , I got to the meetup point at 817 and the driver was already backing out. She had a nasty attitude and was rude. She would have left us there if it been a minute longer. She had no other pick ups either so I dont know why i had to get scolded at by this witch! Otherwise it was GREAT!!!

I was SO excited to go on this adventure. When we got to our first stop though, I got nervous as I'm not the best swimmer. But they have staff in the water to make sure you're safe and the crew are really friendly and helpful. ESPECIALLY the captain, Clee-J, he was so funny! I always felt safe once I got over my fear and wished I could have stayed all day! At one point, another customer asked if we might see starfish. One of the crew went to the trouble of going out and "hunting" for one and brought it on board for everyone to see! Talk about service!
This was second time in the Bahamas and second time with this operator. They are very professional. If I have an opportunity to visit again, I will be scheduling another adventure!
Obviously you guys are organized. I got off my cruise ship and followed the directions to the pick up spot. Waited about 5 minutes. Bus pulled up, guy called out our last name, party of 6, and we were off on our excursion. It couldn't have been any easier! Thanks.
Amazing! The tour couldn't have been better. We stopped at three separate locations, the first of which had the most fish was great. The second had less fish but the view was worth the stop - it was off Nygard Cay, if you don't know what that is look it up. The third and final stop was a once in a lifetime opportunity. They took you out to the second deepest part of the ocean, lowered a bait box, and allowed you to swim with 8 foot Caribbean Reed sharks! Don't worry, it was completely safe. No one felt like they were in any danger at any point. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Don't worry about buying the fish food that's offered, the crew throws some in the water while you're in the water so your surrounded by fish. The only problem we ran into was missing our first shuttle. The itinerary said it left at 9:30 but that was the time the boat left the shuttle leaves at 8:15. So make sure you call ahead and confirm the times. Other than that, great experience and I would recommend it to anyone!
Fantastic experience. I had the experience of a lifetime. Amazing. We snorkeled in three different areas, the captain and his assistant were very friendly and informative. The first area was a nice, large reef. I was holding fish food and got bit by a pirhana-twice. The second was a reef area with a plane wreck in the water. At the third stop, the captain lowered a metal cage of dead fish and immediately about eight 7-10 foot reef sharks began circling it 15 feet below our snorkeling bodies! Crazy! Unbelievable experience, especially for the price. When we all returned safely to the boat at our leisure, the captain slowly raised the box of fish to the surface where we all gathered around the back of the boat to see the sharks come to the surface.
This was the highlight of our cruise! To see the change in color of the water as we approached was magnificent! My husband has trouble walking and snorkeling allows him to enjoy the tropical fish and beautiful reefs.
The snorkeling was an experience of a lifetime! Not only did we view a vast number of colorful fish and coral, the shark encounter was more than what was expected. The tour captain and crew, steered us toward a large school of reef sharks and gave all an opportunity swim and take close-up photos. Of course, there was some apprehensiveness, but the deck crew eased everyone's nervousness. Overall, the snorkel adventure exceeded all expectations. The transfer bus arrived on time, and the drive portion of the tour departed and returned as expected.
This excursion was perfect! Everyone was super nice. Our first stop was breathtaking. I have been many places snorkeling, and Stuart Cove was by far the most beautiful. The reef was incredible. We went in the afternoon and the sun was right above us, which made picture taking perfect because of the clarity of the water. The second stop was not as nice as the first, but still awesome. I highly recommend getting fish food! It was insane having thousands of fish surround you, which makes for awesome bragging pictures. My boyfriend went nuts for the sharks. There were roughly 10-12 grey Caribbean reef sharks circling us for 20 mins. It was the most memorable experience we have had together.
Snorkeling in Nassau was great. The bus picked us up on time and delivered us right back to the dock where our ship was docked. The staff was excellent. Very friendly and explained how to use the equipment wonderfully. Getting to dive with the sharks was the highlight. What an adrenaline rush.
The snorkeling was OK but the shark part was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We viewed at least 30 sharks as they swam around the bait box below us, then after we got out of the water, they were fed from the boat. The crew on the boat was very friendly and cheerful.
This venture is a must do when in Nassau!! I highly suggest that you take your heart medication before swimming with the sharks. It was a rush!
