Comments  
I read several reports in Undercurrent and in the Chapbook about Stuart
Cove's Dive Bahamas before we left and I had some concerns.  Most of the
comments that I read had references such as "cattle boat" and the
like.  The people who used words like that are crybabies and need to get a
grip.  I've never seen an operation as large as SCDB run as smoothly and
efficiently.  They are very good at what they do and there is absolutely
nothing wrong with that.  Ground transportation to and from the dive shop
was always on time and charters always departed on time.  So for someone to
suggest that the operation was less than a great experience is just plain
silly.  Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas is a very smooth running and efficient
operation.  Everyone that we were in contact with, boat captains and crew,
dock crew, dive shop, etc. were all very friendly and helpful.  Individuals
who have said they had a bad experience should consider the possibility
that it was them and not SCDB.

As far as our accomodations are concerned, I was not impressed with the
Wyndham Nassau Resort.  Not only did we NOT get the room rate that we were
quoted when we made the reservation through corporate reservations, they
also charged us and additional $15/per person per night for what they
called a "resort fee".  That minor non-disclosure cost our group
and additional $735.00 in hotel expenses.  In my opinion, the Wyndham
Nassau Resort does not provide a $200.00/night room - clean yes, but not
worth $200.00/night.  The common areas of the resort are what I would
kindly call "tired".  I felt like I was stepping back into the
'70s.  For a little more, I should have stayed at the Sheraton which was
right down the beach.  Infinitly nicer property!


If you're planning a trip to the Nassau area, stay at the Sheraton on Cable
Beach (unless you like all-inclusives) and dive with Stuart Cove's Dive
Bahamas.
