Tiger Beach Shark Diving

Bahamas Liveaboard Shark Diving

Discover the World Famous ‘Tiger Beach’ 

Tiger Beach has been continuously rated as one of the greatest shark diving locations, not only in the Bahamas, but in the world! Experience the thrill of up-close, cage-free, encounters with some of the most iconic large shark species - tiger sharks, great hammerheads, oceanic white-tip sharks, lemon sharks, and more!

Our trips depart from West Palm Beach, Florida, and cruise over to Tiger Beach - a shallow sand flat located just north of Grand Bahama Island (see our map below!). Divers soon find themselves immersed in a world of crystal-blue water surrounded by vibrantly colored, healthy, reefs and an abundance of large sharks.

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. This has since revolutionized diving at Tiger Beach as 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 Opportunites

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!
