Every year, this trip sells out quickly and this week we are taking deposits for the annual Memorial Day Weekend trip to Nassau, Bahamas. Consistently our most popular long weekend away for diving, dining and fun, this year’s trip is priced at $995 plus air.
The 2011 trip is sold out. If you’re interested in the 2012 trip, ensure you are registered to get our email updates as it will be announced in December 2011.
This custom trip designed by Scuba Shack and Peter ensures you’ll experience the best of Nassau including diving on the southwest side of New Providence (Nassau) with great walls that start at 35 feet and drop – in many locations vertically – to more than 6,000 feet. Again this year will be limited to between 18 and 22 divers which allows Stuart Cove’s operation to provide us their best boat and private bus transportation to and from the dive center each day.
If you’re interested in this trip, ensure you contact Scuba Shack ASAP so we can tell you more and you can ensure your spot is on hold. Call us at (860) 563-0119.
To say you’ll experience the hottest dive and dining spots on the island is an understatement. Peter’s preparation each year includes a personal trip to the island months before the Memorial Day Weekend trip to meet with the dive operator and the staff at Orange Hill to ensure everything is just right. How many dive trip leaders do you know who meets with restaurant owners and managers before the trip to schedule entertainment and ensure your satisfaction? Peter does!
Located in the central Bahamas, the southwest side of Nassau features excellent diving opportunities for every level of diver. With walls starting at 35 to 45 feet and dropping vertically one mile, an advanced diver may cruise the wall at 80 to 100 feet – while novice divers complete open water certification dives at the top of the wall near a recently sunk artificial reef. To fully enjoy this multi-level diving experience, dive computers are required.
Diving along the Tongue of the Ocean is a special experience and we’re certain that you will enjoy the diving diversity offered.
Take advantage of the afternoon Shark Dive. You’ll swim with Caribbean Reef Sharks and watch them feed while experiencing an adrenalin filled rush! A photographer and videographer will be in the water and you can purchase prints at Fin Photo™, Stuart Cove’s full service photo and video center, or purchase them online after your trip from home.
Orange Hill Beach Inn is a family run hotel with 32 rooms. Only 75 steps from the beach, Orange Hill is very comfortable for divers and has been recently renovated. The hotel is conveniently located five minutes from the international airport, 15 minutes from Cable Beach, and 12 minutes from the dive center.
