I booked it for my upcoming trip in Oct of this year.

I'm doing an AM 2 tank dive. I have to be picked up at 7:45 am.

Now for some reason I'm really nerous about the pick up. I have to be outside the gate, and by the pick up at 745. Has anyone ever done this?
Am I making more of this then is necessary?

I don't want to do the afternoon dive, getting back at 530 pm when we leave at 6 pm is cutting it REALLY TOO close.

What time is the ship scheduled to begin letting passengers off? We have dove with Stuart Cove`s place many times both from the ship and staying in Nassau. They are a wonderful operator with some outstanding dive sites. Just walk out the gate turn left down by the end of the fence. The bus is very brightly painted easy to spot. Good idea not trying to make the afternoon dive they do not always start or end on time.

We did Stuarts shark dive in March. Got a full wetsuit? They can rent you anything you need rent mind you the pick up out the gate by the fountain was late but in their defense there were a lot of people going there. I say be there and make yourself known too don't just sit in the shadows and wait patiently they will have plenty of their vans running

Oh and have a good safe dive too

Is ship time the same as island time? Can you find that out?

I loved my dives with Stuart Cove, but the pickup timing is tight.

Very close and easy to find.
