I spent two days diving with Stuart Cove's outfit and enjoyed every minute
of it. Their bus picked me up on time both mornings at my hotel, every
person wearing a pink company shirt said hello/good morning as you passed
them, the gear store people were prompt with weights and other items and
everyone was very friendly throughout the entire two days. I did 8 dives
over two days and never felt uncomfortable with anyone there. My last two
dives were the shark feed dive and I had a total blast. Note: if you do the
shark dive make sure you have your trim weights "in/on" the BACK
of your BCD so that you don't fall forward while kneeling over your rock in
the "arena". I used my knee's to grip the rock and was then
pretty comfortable during the dive. 
I had a divemaster named "Viviann" for 4-5 dives and then Terri
Harrison as the "shark wrangler" on the feeding dive and they
were both very professional, informative and a joy to be around. While a
couple of the dive boat were full I never had the "cattle car"
feeling at all. All in all, I would dive with this company again if I ever
get back to Nassau.
For more info on this trip please check my review on "Orange Hill
Beach Inn" and sailing the "Cat Ppalu".
