Description

Delve into the underwater world of the Bahamas, exploring marine movie sets, eerie sunken wrecks, and vibrant coral reefs teeming with tropical sea life on this guided snorkeling excursion.

After being picked up from your hotel, head to the docks – you may recognize this secluded cove as the set of the movie Flipper – and step aboard the Zambezi, a custom-built vessel designed specifically for snorkeling. Lounge on the upper sun deck as you skim across the waves to a beautiful shallow reef. Get acquainted with your snorkeling gear then slide into the water off the back of the boat. Swim leisurely over gently waving sea fans, flitting schools of colorful fish, and elaborate coral formations as you admire this serene marine realm.

Climb back on the boat and make your way out to your second destination. Depending on visibility and conditions, your captain will opt for either another shallow reef or a sunken wreck—the sandy seabed off the Bahamian coast is dotted with the ghostly skeletons of ships and airplanes. Swim up close to the wreckage of a small aircraft to spy timid moray eels and bright fish poking out of windows and crevices in the wreckage.

Finally, cruise out to your third and most daring destination to experience the thrill of snorkeling with Caribbean reef sharks. Observe these magnificent predators of the deep from the safety of the surface as they swarm around a bait box lowered down below you before your return trip to shore.

Both of the guides were very friendly and nice. They provided a great experience and an awesome time. Only thing i wish was for a little more time. 6 out of 5 stars.

This was an incredible snorkeling experience. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and prioritized safety above all else especially during the shark dive. Yes, we were able to be in the water with Caribbean reef sharks, which was truly unforgettable. I certainly recommended this excursion with Stuart Coves to any group traveling to the Bahamas. My one regret was that the coral in the areas were white washed and dead, which was very sad to see but we were able to see plenty of sea life regardless.
