Stuart Cove's Company


Prior to opening his first dive operation, Stuart Cove captained a diving / snorkeling boat for Club Med. In the summer of 1977, Stuart landed a job as stunt / safety diver on the James Bond feature film "For Your Eyes Only" staring Roger Moore and Carole Bouquet. During the filming of this job, Stuart's skills as a "shark wrangler" and dive instructor quickly stood out. By the end of the shoot he had established himself as a competent U/W production support coordinator.

"For Your Eyes Only" allowed Stuart to put away enough money in the bank to buy his first dive boat. In 1978 Stuart used that boat and began to run his own dive business on the island of New Providence. That boat docked and left from the canal behind his fathers house on New Providence. Back then, Stuart offered a single 1-tank dive each day. If he was lucky enough to take out 20 divers that was considered a great day! However, it also meant spending the rest of the day and part of the evening filling each of those 20 tanks one at a time from an old, slow compressor.

That one boat operation proved successful and Stuart Cove's built a good reputation for offering quality services on New Providence. As a result of that reputation, in 1983 the Lyford Cay Country Club invited Stuart to assume the responsibilities for managing their watersports concession. In addition to continuing to offer the regularly scheduled dive trips, Stuart Cove's now offered water-skiing, banana boat rides, and other water sport activities to club guests. Divers who were not members of the club were picked up in Stuart's shuttle bus and brought to the club for their dives. Upon completion of the days diving activities they were returned to their hotel.

This growth resulted in the purchase of the first custom dive boat - the "Black Coral", a 54 foot flat top dive boat. During the several years that went past while operating out of this location - Stuart Cove grew to become one of the leading dive operators on New Providence Island and continued to achieve outstanding customer service. This feat is especially significant when you consider that Stuart was serving two diverse clients - divers visiting New Providence island on vacation and Lyford Cay Country Club members utilizing watersports and diving services from their private club.
