Tiger Beach Diving
Tiger Beach Liveaboard Shark Diving
See The Affectionate Side of Sharks
For nearly four decades, Jim Abernethy has specialized in large predatory shark diving, always without a cage. These experiences have provided Jim with the knowledge of how to interact with groups of large sharks, safely. In 2002, Jim discovered the affectionate side of sharks while removing a hook from the jaw of a tiger shark at Tiger Beach. This has since revolutionized diving at Tiger Beach as it is the only place on earth to witness this behavior. In turn, Jim has passed this knowledge onto his crew to teach divers how to make friends with sharks using affection, rather than food. Divers will have the opportunity to witness Jim’s crew interact with tiger sharks, great hammerheads, and lemon sharks using Jim’s techniques for affection.

Incredible Photo Opportunities
One of the primary goals during our dive trips is to assist you in capturing breathtaking imagery and video footage. Jim Abernethy is an internationally-acclaimed photographer and cinematographer who has devoted his life to sharing the true nature of these sharks with the world. Onboard the Shearwater, our crew utilize photography strategies and locations acquired through Jim’s decades of experience. Jim hopes that the imagery you capture will become a driving force in the conservation of these beautiful animals.
The Most Intimate Shark Encounters
The best wildlife interactions at Tiger Beach always occur with the fewest number of people in the water. For this reason, we limit our charters to 10 divers per trip. We also stagger our divers entering the water during the first dive of the day, with two groups of five divers entering the water at separate times. This creates a pattern that carries on throughout the day, allowing you to dive with fewer people on each dive, and allows for you to get back in the water as soon as your tanks are refilled by our staff waiting on the dive deck! This ensures that our guests have an incredible experience, both above and below the water.
No Limiting Dive Schedules
Once the day has begun, Tiger Beach dives are not limited to scheduled times. In other words, the pool is always open, with our professionally trained crew in the water at all times!
