We dove with Stuart Cove when we were in the Bahamas on a cruise. I set up
our diving on-line through We were picked up from the
cruise port and taken to their dive shop which was about a half hour drive.
When we arrived we were assigned a boat and set up our gear. This dive
operation is great as far as dive operations go. They seemed to put divers
with more experience together. One couple who was on the boat even had
hired there own dive master to help them and dive with them since they
hadn't been diving for a while. 
The first dive site was a wall dive and then came up on a DC3 plane that
had been in a movie. Just like the last time my husband and I had dove in
the Bahamas we were suprised by the total lack of healthy coral and fish
life. Our second dive site was called Pumpkin Patch and at least this site
had some coral that was still alive but still very little fish life. We
talked to people who have done the shark dive with Stuart Cove and gave it
rave reviews. Next time if we are stuck in the Bahamas we may give it a try
since the normal diving is so dull. The best part of the trip would be the
outstanding, professial, and well orgainize dive operation. My only
suggestion would be longer bottom times.
