Night Dive

Night dives at Stuart Cove’s are 1-tank boat trips which can be scheduled to go out any night of the week. The only requirement the dive shop has is that night dives must have a minimum of 6 divers for the trip to depart. Typically night dive trips visit one of our shipwrecks.

We do not sell night dives in advance unless there is a group of 6 or more.

Typically the dive shop is able to get a night dive out on either Friday or Saturday night. If you are interested in doing a night dive, simply let the girls at the dive check-in desk know and they will assist you selecting a night and locating additional divers.

Out Island Seafari

This all day trip will give divers a chance to experience some of the “Out Islands” of the Bahamas. Your day long trip begins by crossing to the other side of the Tongue-of-the-Ocean and visiting Andros Island. This is approximately a 25 mile voyage and takes approximately 1.5 hours. Included in this specialty program are beverages and a picnic lunch.

First Dive

Your first dive will be a “blue hole”. These are natural caves where a part of the roof has collapsed creating a “hole” with stalagmites still pointing up from the floors, and stalactites hanging down from the remaining ceiling areas. This dive is considered an advanced dive as you will reach depths of 130 feet.

Second Dive

Your second dive is along the pristine Andros wall. Similar to the walls on the New Providence side, the Andros area is only dived by a few divers each year. Thus you will see magnificent coral growth and large amounts of marine life.
A third site will also be visited. This may be another wall dive, or a shallow reef.

Minimum Number of Divers Required:
• 14
