Vessel-The Dolphin Dream

Diving with Sharks at Tiger Beach

The small, shallow sand flat, an hour by boat from the West End of Grand Bahama Island, is the most reliable, consistent and, arguably, photographically pleasing spot to photograph these striped beauties on Earth.

Many of the tiger sharks at Tiger Beach have achieved a certain level of fame among divers. There is Hook with her tragic, yet photogenic, bent lower jaw, Emma with her old, wrinkly skin and sheer size, Princess with her generally gentle demeanour and many others.

There is really no reason to be “nervous” when diving at tiger beach. The sharks are not there to eat people, but we should have a healthy dose of respect for them – after all they are big predators – much bigger than us. There are a few rules to follow while on these dives: don’t touch them, don’t turn your back to an approaching shark and if a shark is coming up behind a fellow diver let them know, stay still and try not to stir up the sand, heavily overweight yourself and be steady on the sandy bottom (currents have been known to rage). The sharks are being fed pieces of fish that are usually white or silver in color so wear a dark wetsuit and gloves and keep your hands to yourself. Unless you really know what you are doing it’s a good idea to have something solid in your hand like a camera or PVC pipe to gently redirect a close, curious shark.

The biggest airport is Miami (MIA), about 2 hours from the marina.  Boarding time is 3pm to 7pm on the departure day, and the boat departs for the Bahamas at 10pm. On our return, disembarkation is around 10:30am.

Tiger Beach

Tiger Beach is known as one of the best locations to dive with the tiger and lemon sharks which are encountered off the West End Grand Bahama Islands. With a white sand bottom and shallow depths (12-14m) this makes for a favourite spot for photographers and videographers. Sightings of great hammerhead and nurse sharks are common, with the occasional bull shark making an appearance.

Bimini for Dolphins and Hammerheads

This area is renowned for pods of wild Atlantic spotted and bottlenose dolphins, with the opportunity to swim or snorkel with these amazing creatures. Snorkeling with the dolphins is possible if they decide to stay around, it is a beautiful experience that you won’t forget.
