In 1670 British settlers came to New Providence Island and built Fort Charlestown, but in 1684 it was burned to the ground by the Spanish. It was later re-built and renamed Nassau in 1695 to honor King William III (formerly Prince of Orange-Nassau). We dive with Stuart Cove?s Aqua Adventures, and visit the wrecks made famous in many Hollywood movies. Nassau, with its clear waters and abundant marine life is often hailed as ?The Underwater Hollywood,? with such movies as Splash, Flipper, Jaws IV, Speed 2, Into the Blue, Openwater, After the Sunset, four James Bond movies, and more.
