Dive the sharky waters of The Bahamas
If you want the adrenaline rush of diving with sharks, the Bahamas should be top of your diving bucket list. This island nation near Florida is considered a prime destination for diving with a whole array of various shark species. With Caribbean reef sharks, lemon sharks, nurse sharks, bull sharks, tiger sharks, great hammerheads and oceanic whitetip sharks, to name a few. There are not many countries in the world where you can dive with such an array of shark species.
Tiger Beach is one of the Bahamas’ most famous dive sites. Encompassing a 20 square mile area located around 30 nautical miles off the West End of Grand Bahama Island, it is the best known point for shark encounters at a shallow (8-10m/26-33ft) white sand bottom. This is the ultimate site for photographers and videographers. If you’re lucky, you might meet pregnant female tiger sharks that remain in these shallow waters for several months on end.
