Comments I wish that I had known about the cattle operation of Stuart Cove. It was an absolute nightmare and the boat crew could not have cared less. This is the worst dive operation I have ever encountered. No help with equipment. Boats are very crowded. Cheap operation charging premium prices for everything. Got ill after some bad fish was served at Conchfritters in town and ashed Stuart Cove for a refund on the next day's diving. They laughted and said sorry!
Not only will I NEVER use Cove's, but I will NEVER return to the Bahamas. It's too close to Florida and a real money machine with a very bad attitude.
The British Colony Hilton is a good operation.

From here we went to Bonaire again!
