This operation is an absolute cattle car.  They put more than 24 divers on
the boat.  It was absolutely jammed.  Stuart Cove's personnel, starting
with the bus driver were downright surly. Two kids were the supposed dive
masters, but they left the divers pretty much on their own. 

After diving with two other shops in Nassau, I learned there are much
better dive sites than the one we visited, but they're not as close to
Stuart Cove's dock, which makes it tougher for them to "turn"
their boats two or more times. 

This company is the Wal Mart of scuba diving, and I'm sure they're wildly
profitable, but..... 

If I had to dive like this every time out, I'd quit and take up bowling.
