Message from Stuart

Since I began my career in diving over 20 years ago, I first observed and then interacted with the shark population around the island. Those early experiences paved the way for our participation in Hollywood blockbusters such as “Never Say Never Again” and “Jaws IV: The Revenge” where I worked as the films “Shark Wrangler”. The outgrowth of those experiences led to the development of our Shark Adventure™ dives which we offer regularly.

Let’s go diving soon…. with the sharks!

Day One

Your first day starts early in the morning when you are greeted by your “Shark Buddy” upon arrival at the dive shop. Your “Shark Buddy” is an experienced shark feeder at Stuart Cove’s and a scuba instructor. For the next two days – you will live in your buddies shoes as a shark feeder.

The morning begins with a behind the scenes tour of Stuart Cove’s facility. Then it’s off to the classroom where you will take the Shark Awareness Specialty Course. This course will give you the basic knowledge you should know about sharks including how to identify certain species, how to read behaviors such as aggressive and polite feeding, and basic anatomy. The morning course finishes with a detailed briefing of the Stuart Cove Shark Adventure™ dives. During this briefing you will be given numerous observation assignments for the afternoon dive.

Once the class is completed its off to the dive boat where you will participate (as a guest) in the Shark Adventure™ dives. On this trip you will be performing your observation assignments. These two dives also complete your Shark Awareness specialty course. During the two dives you will observe both natural and feeding behaviors of the Caribbean Reef sharks.You will be suited up in chainmail positioned next to your “Shark Buddy”. Your “Shark Buddy” will now show you his/her point of view. Near the end of the feed dive, your “Shark Buddy” will turn the spear and bait box over to you, for the last few pieces of bait.
