Stuart Cove’s Shark Arena

Also known as “The Arena,“ this is the most popular site of Stuart Cove’s famous Shark Adventure. During the dive, you will kneel on the sand bottom and form a semicircle in front of the professional shark feeder who will place a bait box in the center to attract the sharks.

This dive site is all about the shark encounters! They will get up-close and personal! Expect to see tons of Caribbean reef sharks!
