Nassau, Bahamas – May 22-27, 2019

Scuba Shack’s most popular trip year-after-year includes all the great diving you expect to find in Nassau, with five nights of poolside accommodations at Orange Hill and four days of diving with Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas. Join us May 22-27 for a perfect trip for novice and advanced divers!

Why is the southwest side of Nassau perfect for novice and advanced divers? Most dive sites are close to the island and in waters no deeper than 35 to 45 feet. Most sites feature wrecks and/or fantastic coral formations. But what’s really unique is that on many of those sites – yards away – is the famous Tongue of the Ocean featuring vertical walls covered with hard and soft corals dropping more than one mile deep! It’s simple – novice divers can enjoy the dive along the top of the wall and more advanced divers can enjoy the deeper wall diving!

Last year’s schedule was very popular, so we’re packing this year’s trip with the same fun adventures!

During this Memorial Day Weekend trip, divers will enjoy 10 scheduled dives.

  • Three days of two boat dives each morning featuring a Lionfish Hunt on one morning
  • Plus a two-tank Dive Propulsion Vehicle Trip on one afternoon
  • Plus an all-day Scuba Safari Adventure to Nassau’s Blue Hole with two dives and a trip to Rose Island featuring a beach barbecue.

Trip leader Peter Katz has out-done himself again this year, setting up another unique dive adventure!

Dive by day, and enjoy some of the finest dining on the island by night! Nassau, famous for its warm, clear water, is a draw to TV, movie-makers and divers alike! Dive sites include The Bond Wrecks, Southwest Reef and Peter’s favorite, Pumpkin Patch!

The southwest side of Nassau also features more than a dozen dive sites featuring wrecks placed as artificial reefs!
