Can anyone give a good recommendation on a dive charter down in the bahamas? We will be down there the middle part of May. The last time we went there was a dive outfit down there that did a decent job but the dives were not that good (first one was in 50ft. of water and the second one was a coral reef that was 10ft deep at best). Looking to get into some deeper stuff (40ft-65ft) and see more fishies. I am certified.

Where in the Bahamas are you going? Fish populations aresad in most of the more common places down there. The marine life here is usually better.

We will be going to Atlantis but plan on heading down a day early and stay in Nassau/Cable Beach area. I looked online and seems like Stuarts Cove has a pretty good outfit down there, but I dont know?

I just got back from a dive cruise down there two weeks ago. It was awesome. A bit cold this time of year and windy though. Blackbeards was the company. It isn't the most luxurious but it is still fun. Cost is $899 for a week. All food, wine, drinks, rum, beer, tanks, and weights are included. If you aren't looking to get pampered just some great diving these guys are what you want. www.blackbeard-cruises.com

Stephen and Ihave used Stuart Cove in Nassau- great dive operator and good boats/ladders. The all day 3 tank dive to Andros was excellent and I recommend the shark diving also. We saw lots of sharks on every dive, but the shark feeding was something to remember.

I used Stuarts Cove while on a cruiseabout two years ago.They provided tranportation to and from cruise ship on a bus . We dove the David Tucker wreck/wall and the Hollywood bowl thatwas25' deep reef hour long dive.We had shark free dive sitesbecause there were students on the boat. I was very happy with their service and will definitely use them again. And i was also surprised by the small amount of fish compared to here.

Thanks for the suggestions. Seems like Stuarts Cove is the ticket for us. Needless to say I am pretty jacked about this trip. Not to toot the horn of the Atlantis resort, but when you can sit in a lazy river on a tube and have the ability to go down three different tube slides without ever getting up out of your tube it makes for a pretty relaxing trip!
