Did you ever return from a dive trip and found the experience so exhilarating that you were prepared to immediately head back out to sea for another dive? Well, on our All Day Diving Program, dive junkies can enjoy a full day of underwater exploration.
This package combines our Two Tank Morning Dive with our Two Tank Afternoon Dive for a fully satisfying day investigating the colorful reefs, teeming wreck habitats, and impressive undersea walls. In the morning, begin your tour by diving along a gigantic wall. Most of our wall sites begin at 40 feet, although some start in even deeper water. The fantastic plethora of sights at different dive locales along the wall will offer patrons the chance to experience a unique dive. On each expedition, our staff accommodates the divers' wishes. Clients have the option of following the divemaster to depths of 80 feet for a half hour.
Explore a wreck or shallow reef at our second dive site. Many abundant reefs, each with a spectrum of coral gardens and marine species, are just a short ride from Nassau and Paradise Island. Many captivating wreck locations, including a mammoth 100-foot freighter, 50 feet below the surface, the acclaimed James Bond wreck in 40 feet of water, and the Cessna used in the film, "Jaws." Stuart and Michelle Cove, the operation's owners, have numerous film credits in their background, working on such Bond flicks as "For Your Eyes Only," starring Roger Moore, and "Never Say Never Again," starring Sean Connery.
Our staff chooses the particular dive locales on the day of the diving expedition. This allows our crew the flexibility to lead dives to the perfect sites for that specific day, according to the most ideal weather conditions and the requests of our clients. After you return to the docks from your morning dive trip, you will then have a very short turnaround to eat lunch, which is available for sale in the dive shop for a nominal fee. You'll only have a brief time to eat and exchange stories with fellow divers before heading back out for your afternoon trip to visit another wall site as well as another reef/wreck exploration.

Can I use/bring my own scuba diving equipment?
Yes. Many people feel more comfortable using equipment they are familiar with and are best suited towards their body type. While we do everything to ensure our divers are using the safest, most reliable gear we do allow our divers to use their own dive gear.
Can my non-diving partner come on the dive?
Yes. While your partner will not be able to participate in the dive itself they can come along as a rider and enjoy the trip with you.
Is There a restroom on the boat?
Yes. There is a restroom or "Marine Head" for use on the boat.
What about sharks and other sea creatures?
With all the media hype it's understandable why people often ask this question but the truth is that unprovoked shark attacks are very, very rare and attacks on scuba divers are even more rare. Our staff, divers and dive masters are all trained in making sure your dive is safe and enjoyable.
