Just a short hop from New Jersey, New Providence Island and it's port of
Nassau was just great for a quick getaway and a chance for six dives with
Stuart Cove's Dive Bahama boats. The water was a warm 82 and a wetsuit
wasn't needed, though I dive in a lycra skin and I was very confortable.
Reefs and wrecks was the menu for the week. The Wiili Lauri was surreal
looking with it's rusted superstructure. The sunlight was behind the wreck
as I approached it from the starboard. There were holes for entry in the
bow section and you could swim along the keel line to the stern. It was
very dark looking forward but there was always light behind me. The Sharks
were something else.On three dives there were sharks in the water.
Curiously swimming pretty close. But at Shark Arena it was a different
story. There were 20-25 Black Tips ready for there meal. We were positioned
in a circle about 20 feet in diameter on a sandy patch of the reef. The
divemaster/feeder slowly dropped into the middle with his aluminum crate of
fish heads. Over the next 30 minutes the sharks swam all around. Coming
extremely close, at one time even parting my hair. It was awesome.! A fun
time, boats were clean and well run. The only small negative was the
distance from Cable Beach ( We stayerd at the Wndham which was very nice)
about 30 minutes and at least 50 or so from downtown Nassau.
