Stuart Cove's Shark Adventure® is a 2-tank dive program that introduces thrill-seeking divers to wild sharks, offering a close-up look at these fascinating and misunderstood creatures. There are currently 4 different sites; the group will visit either a combination of the "Shark Wall" and "The Arena" or a combination of the "Shark Wall North" and "The Runaway." Each area offers first-rate shark viewing.

Begin with a "free swim" on a magnificent wall. The sharks will follow the group throughout the dive because it's close to the feeding site—and they know the dinner bell will ring soon. However, no bait is exposed on this dive, which keeps the sharks curious and creates a safe, natural encounter for the divers. Next up, embark on a bona-fide shark-feeding dive. Unlike ordinary dives, the group will spend their time kneeling on the sand bottom in a semi-circle around the professional shark feeder. Watch in awe as the feeder, by way of skill and experience, keeps the sharks in "polite" feeding postures. The sharks will come close to everyone, but they are far more interested in the bait than anyone in the group.
