Favourite non-diving activity Wine tasting and blending at Graycliff’s Bahama Barrels.

Favourite place to eat / drink The best place to drink and grab a snack is Pirate Republic - www. piraterepublicbahamas. com. If you want something more refined for a special occasion then a visit to Graycliff is well worth it - www. graycliff.com.

Final Word The Stuart Cove’s signature shark dives give you some incredible up close and personal shark experiences that will stay with you forever.

around the wreck, being picked out by our torches as they drifted into the beams of light. Other marine life joined us with the ever-present Nurse Sharks, turtles, moray eels, crustaceans and reef fish all preparing for their nightly routines. This experience was truly a shark dive like no other. Heading back into the Stuart Cove’s dock, we mulled over the four dives we had done over just two days. A wreck dive with sharks, a shark feeding dive on a wreck, a scooter dive with sharks and a baited shark night dive each dive totally different and all wonderful in their own way. The sharks come in close and are habituated to divers, so these dives present you with an incredible chance to see these supremely well adapted

predators up close and in large numbers. Our crew were exceptional, with detailed knowledge of the sharks, as well as an evident deep love for them. We could not have asked for a better two days of diving and we are sure to return. ■
