There is nothing to photograph. Coral is dead. Fish are not there. Very
bad.

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!
