Tiger Sharks at Tiger Beach
Ask any diver who's been lucky enough to swim alongside a tiger shark, and they'll tell you that there are few animals on this planet more majestic. Tiger sharks have an undeniable presence, combining raw power and pure beauty in such a way that those who encounter them cannot help but fall under their spell. Tiger Beach in The Bahamas is one of the best places in the world to get up-close and personal with them.
Although tiger sharks enjoy a global range, only two destinations offer specifically dedicated tiger shark dives -- South Africa and The Bahamas. The tigers of both countries are equally impressive. Conditions in The Bahamas tend to tip the scales in favor of these Caribbean islands, though. Water temperatures are consistently warm and visibility is unparalleled. Thus, Tiger Beach has become the iconic home of the tiger shark.
The vast majority of tiger shark photos that you see in magazines or online originate from Tiger Beach. The sandy arena of the dive site is usually free from current and blessed with crystalline visibility. Best of all, it has a maximum depth of just 20 feet (6m). Divers spend their time in a fixed position on the bottom, with no real restraints imposed by air consumption or no-decompression limits. Conditions at Tiger Beach make it possible to focus simply on the sharks themselves.
Great Hammerheads in Bimini
Bimini has emerged as one of the best places on the planet to encounter one of the ocean's most amazing predators, the Great Hammerhead Shark. These elusive giants have evaded divers for years, but now Neal Watson's Bimini Scuba Center has access!
