“Best of the Bahamas” Dive Trip
Dive with Tiger Sharks, Oceanic White-Tips, Great Hammerheads, and More!
Take diving to a whole new level of adventure! During this epic dive trip you will have the chance to experience the thrill of diving with great hammerheads and tiger sharks, snorkeling with Atlantic spotted dolphins, drift diving with oceanic white-tips, laugh with the swimming pigs of Staniel Cay, and feel like James Bond while diving through Thunderball grotto.
During this trip, we will visit the world famous ‘Tiger Beach’. This spectacular shark diving location is unlike any other in the world and guarantees one of the most unique underwater experiences in a diver’s life! The shallow sand flat, located north of the West End of Grand Bahama Island, is the most reliable, consistent and, arguably, photographically pleasing spot to photograph these striped beauties on Earth.
Departing Tiger Beach, we begin our journey toward Cat Island, making stops along the way. The waters surrounding Cat Island offer the incredible opportunity to dive with oceanic white-tip sharks. There is no mistaking these pelagic predators. For their commandeering presence, this impressive shark is one of a kind. With their over-sized paddle-like pectoral fins you will not find a more endearing shark photograph.
Of course no trip to the Bahamas would be complete without diving the dazzling reefs. Surrounded by an abundance of marine life, both large and small, the reef’s beauty will take your breath away. Caribbean Reef sharks, large groupers, moray eels and numerous fish will adorn a single wide angle photograph.
Here a a few of the reasons you should dive with us, in addition to why we have so many repeat guests! We are the only live aboard dive vessel that allows unlimited (We don’t schedule or count your dives) diving, provides nitrox and does a night dives every night. We have the fewest number of guests on board (10 maximum) to insure your shark experience is the very best it can be. If you truly love sharks as well as all animals, it is really great to support ecotourism operators that are actually saving the animals they love. Jim’s main drive and passion is to do everything within his means to save sharks and other wildlife as is displayed on his nonprofit webpage, www.wildlifevoice.org His history of conservation achievements is endless, including spearheading the conservation campaign to get sharks protected in the entire Bahamas territory! In addition you will learn how best to interact with a large number of large predatory sharks by the pioneer in large predatory cageless encounters with the legendary Jim Abernethy Shark Briefing, utilizing 4 decades of large shark experience!
