Tiger Beach, Bahamas
The Bahamas are arguably the shark diving capital of the world. Tiger Beach on Grand Bahama has become a shark swimming hotspot as it is a prime location to see tiger sharks. The sharks live in the shallow waters over an immense sandbank and come in close proximity to divers. It is not strictly a natural encounter as the dive instructors use bait to attract them. However, it does offer a great chance to get up close and personal to the 16-foot predators.
A diving experience in Tiger Beach can easily be incorporated into a private cruise or a luxury yacht charter in the North Bahamas. If you want the opportunity to be involved in helping to protect sharks in the area Miami Fleet is offering a scientific learning expedition on board superyacht Usher.
