Some of the Reasons People Dive with Us
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!

All charters require a minimum of 6 participants. While charters are rarely canceled due to a lack of participants, Jim Abernethy’s Scuba Adventures will make every effort to reschedule customers to a later date. Any payments made will be put toward a later expedition. Flights should only be booked when the minimum number of passengers have been met. A charter is binding when the contract is signed and returned to us with deposit within 5 days. If we cancel the charter due to weather or any other reason, credit on another charter will be issued for one year. During your trip, no refunds are given for weather, seasickness, acts of God or any other circumstance beyond our control. Trip insurance is highly recommended to cover any unexpected difficulties.
