Comments I took my PADI Rescue Diver course with Nassau Scuba. The instructors (Neil and Ronelle) were very knowledgeable and more thorough than most I have had for other specialty courses. Staff was helpful. Their driver picked up from local hotels each morning.

The equipment was fairly run down. The wetsuit they provided had a large hole in the torso, its replacement was not much better. BCD's were in varying states of disrepair. All the large BC's they had when I was there had weight belt straps sewn in instead of the velcro cummerbund.

Air fills were spotty. I had several tanks closer to 2000 psi than 3000 when I first geared up. The next day I checked 4 tanks before finding 2 good ones for the morning dive.

The boat (Sea Hawk) was a good size, never felt crowded.

Nassau is known for sharks. The shark dive (tongue of the ocean) and the feeding are not to be missed. Close to two dozen Caribbean Reef sharks appeared with some approaching 8 feet. Sharks were also spotted at other dive sites.

The center is reportedly just recently back under the management of its owners. They were working on fixing gear and getting the operation back to where it could be.

I would dive with them again.
