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.

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.

Nassau, Bahamas

Nassau was formerly known as Charles Town; founded in 1670 by British Noblemen who brought British settlers with them to New Providence where they built a fort that was named Charles Town in honour of England’s King Charles II. Pirates ! From 1703 to 1718 there was no governor in the colony and by 1713, the sparsely settled Bahamas had become a pirate haven. The Governor of Bermuda stated that there were over 1,000 pirates in Nassau and that they outnumbered the mere hundred inhabitants of the town. They proclaimed Nassau a pirate republic, establishing themselves as "governors". Examples of pirates that used Nassau as their base are Charles VaneThomas Barrow (who declared himself "Governor of New Providence")[8]Benjamin HornigoldCalico Jack RackhamAnne BonnyMary Read, and the infamous Edward Teach, better known as "Blackbeard". Today. The city's proximity to the United States (290 km east-southeast of Miami, Florida) has contributed to its popularity as a holiday resort, especially after the United States imposed a ban on travel to Cuba in 1963. The Atlantis resort on nearby Paradise Island accounts for more tourist arrivals to the city than any other hotel property of Nassau.
