Imagine gliding effortlessly alongside some of the oceans’ most beautiful and majestic creatures. Dream of how it would feel to be as agile and (nearly) as fast as sharks, rays, and big fish. Tantalize yourself with thoughts of feeling even more at one with the ocean and its inhabitants than you ever dreamed you could. Now, head to Stuart Cove’s in the Bahamas, grab a SeaBob and make that dream a reality.

Diving with SeaBob and Stuart Cove’s

Stuart Cove’s shark program is world-renowned and wildly popular among shark lovers and conservationists alike.  Now they’ve added a new element to that incredible opportunity: the Seabob DPV. I was lucky enough to take part in Stuart Cove’s initial launch of their SeaBob program, wherein you can choose to dive (or snorkel) with the DPV. Diving with Stuart Cove’s in the Bahamas is an incredible experience regardless, but diving with sharks during their shark-feeding dive is even more so.  Now, instead of just kneeling on the bottom watching the sharks, you can zip around the water with them on the fastest and quietest DPV on the market.

If sharks aren’t your thing, you can just do a “normal” dive with a Seabob, or take one snorkeling and/or freediving. Either way, you’ll be impressed with the DPV’s speed — so much so that you’ll find it difficult to hang on at full speed. That it’s so quiet also helps keep the marine life from scurrying off more quickly than they normally would.

SeaBobs also have both selfie and front-view cameras that can catch video of your entire dive. Here’s a quick video of some footage I caught:

Who should dive with a SeaBob?

One thing to note: diving with a SeaBob is definitely not for beginners. Divers using a DPV must have good depth control and a strong understanding of how important it is to keep themselves from ascending too quickly or dropping to a dangerous depth. They must be fully aware of their surroundings at all times to avoid collisions with other DPVs, marine life, wrecks or reefs.

Stuart Cove’s is one of the world’s top spots for great shark dives, and now it’s one of the only places in the world you can rent a SeaBob DPV to go on a magical underwater tour – in style.
