Whether you've tried snorkeling, or this is your first time, they will train you with professionalism and expertise. No experience is required, but it will be an advantage to you if you have been snorkeling before. This company has been featured on The Discovery Channel and in many documentaries since 1979 when Stuart opened his dive shop.
Once you disembark your cruise ship, Stuart Cove's will pick you up in a marked van at a designated spot, and take you on a scenic and informative ride across the island. It's not too long of a drive, and was very enjoyable. The driver pointed out the celebrity homes of Tiger Woods, Sean Connery and more. He told us of Nassau's legendary pirate roots, and also facts about the Bahamian people.
Their dive shop is located on the former set of Flipper, the old TV series. They have restrooms with showers (nothing fancy), memorabilia, photos, maps, a gift shop, and an outdoor classroom. You will take one of these double-decker boats out to your snorkel or dive site. We did the shark encounter package, with the 2 added snorkeling sites. You can stay on the boat during the shark portion, which is called "bubble watching."
