Recently, Stuart traveled to Honduras where he stayed at the CoCo View Resort. There he put on his SCUBA gear and went exploring! “Wreck diving has fascinated me since childhood,” Stuart said. “Maybe it was all the Jacques Cousteau I watched with my dad [Chad Stuart]. I had a brave counselor at Catalina Island summer camp who let me explore the sunken yachts of Emerald Bay using a mask and snorkel.
Today, Stuart says he shares his passion with his own children. “I’m lucky to have been able to transmit the fascination to my youngest son,” adds the actor. Stuart and his son also discovered marine life during their adventures. “I took my youngest son to meet some sharks today in beautiful Roatan, Honduras,” he added.
