Has anyone done the shark dives in the Bahamas, ie, Stuart Cove’s?

I did the shark dive with UNEXSO on Grand Bahama last year and loved it. They use a sandy area next to a small wreck. Divers are in the water first and positioned on the bottom before the shark feeder enters the water. They HAND FEED the sharks! Lots of sharks and very controlled (no Hollywood frenzy) - an amazing experience!

Checkout their YouTube channel for some videos: https://youtu.be/5VwTvOEqKXo

I have dived the shark arena where Stuart Cove’s does there shark feeding, but I was with another dive operator (Sandals) and they didn’t feed. Boat engine stopping was still a signal for the sharks to stick around and see if the chain mail diver was going to hop in and give them lunch. Beautiful site and we had around 14 sharks with us for the majority of the dive. Stuart Cove’s is a great operation and definitely on my list to go back and visit. 

Another option is Neil Watson’s Bimini Scuba Center at the Big Game Club Resort. Variety of sharks from reef and nurse sharks to lemon, tigers and great hammerhead.

Sorry but I don't think too much of Stuarts Cove. First if your near Atlantis your in for a long bus ride. Then when you get there you'll find a lot of workers standing around and no one offers to help you. I was carrying two bags. When we did get on the boat it was full a real cattle boat. Then the dive master only took us barely out the cut. He then told us we had to come back to the boat in 30 minutes  because the boat needed to be back at the dock for the next load. A waste of money.
