Bahamas Dive With Sharks
An up close and personal underwater photographic experience with the team that invented shark wrangling, dive with sharks in the Bahamas. Located on the southwest side of New Providence, the well established and esteemed Stuart Cove will host you in a journey of interaction and education through the lens. Specialists in shark research and underwater production, learn the ways of the underwater world and dive with sharks to perfect that shot.
Stuart Cove, run by Michelle and Stuart, have featured in many shark film productions themselves. Their first underwater film was shot in 1915, and titled “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”. From here, producers have flocked to the region, making it the “underwater film capital” of the world. With diverse marine life, shallow reefs and plummeting shelf walls, this destination is understandably unrivalled. Through the lens, this region hosts some of the clearest waters, offering consistency and upmost clarity. Hosting movies such as Flipper, Pirates of the Caribbean 2&3 and even James Bond’s Casino Royale, this truly is the best production team in the world. In an exciting collaboration, Mission05 have partnered with this team, opening up the doors to offer a dive with sharks experience, that these teams have had over decades of film production.
