The Bahamas is known as the “Wreck Capital of the Caribbean”. With thousands of sunken hulks buried beneath the sand and reef, about 50 wrecks are safely accessible to divers. Most of them surround New Providence Island and were sunk by Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas over the last 30 years. Some have been moved from Nassau Harbor, others sunk intentionally, but the result is still the same: giving divers a new thrill and the ocean a new reef.
When a ship is sunk properly in a controlled environment, it plays a major role in supporting the Bahamas’ Artificial Reef Program’s goal to promote the healthy rejuvenation of corals, reefs and the marine life that call them home.
Stuart Cove’s work with Bahamian agencies and environmental groups not only helps to maintain environmentally friendly marinas and coastal waters, but each new artificial reef creates an exciting, educational and safe site for divers of all levels to explore. Wrecks like the 200-foot Ray of Hope, the 130-foot Willaurie, and the 250-foot Sea Trader make wreck diving with Stuart Cove’s an unforgettable adventure.
