New Providence Diving Holidays: An Overview
There is no doubt that the island of New Providence is more built up than many of the destinations we recommend, however it is home to one of the most exciting shark dives on earth. Add to this some beautiful hotels and you are on to a winner, even for just couple of days at the beginning or end of your trip.
Stuart Cove first interacted with the shark population around New Providence Island over 20 years ago when his career in diving began. This paved the way for his involvement in Hollywood blockbusters such as 'Never Say Never Again', which in turn led to the 'Shark Adventure Dive' which we now offer off New Providence Island in the Bahamas.
The shark diving is located just off the west side of New Providence Island and they take place every afternoon and attract a huge number of Caribbean reef sharks. Perhaps 30 or so reef sharks will be swarming around you during this feed and they get very close, but don't worry they more interested in the bait than you!
The 'Shark Dive Adventure' attracts divers and tourist from all over the world and in turn builds a huge amount of awareness for these predators in our ocean that are under threat from extinction. It wipes away that image of 'Jaws' that so many people associate with sharks and instead highlights the importance of preserving these magnificent creatures.
