Bahamas Shark Diving!
Shark Diving can be one of the most thrilling experiences people have underwater and the Bahamas offers some of the greatest up close encounters with some of the larger shark species.
Epic Diving offers dedicated shark diving expeditions with a number of key species. From the ubiquitous reef shark, the larger-than-life tiger shark, to the ultra rare oceanic whitetip and great hammerhead, these trips offer nonstop heart-pounding excitement. Our dive boat, M/V Thresher, moves between islands for the best encounters with the different species during the appropriate seasons.
The year starts off in Bimini where divers have the opportunity to dive with the Great Hammerhead shark, a rare and generally shy species. In addition to the hammerheads, divers will encounter bull and nurse sharks, as well as stingray and optional dolphin interactions. In March, Thresher moves to Cat Island, now world renowned for it’s incredible Oceanic Whitetip Shark diving. While diving with this pelagic shark species, guests will ofter see silky and dusky sharks, with possible blue marlin encounters. During the summer months, we return to Bimini for our Wild Dolphin Expeditions where guests will encounter Atlantic Spotted and Bottlenose Dolphin. Epic Diving spends the remainder of the year on the West End of Grand Bahama Island at the world famous Tiger Beach. Tiger sharks, reef sharks, and lemon sharks are the norm, with chances to see great hammerheads.
All shark diving is done in clear, warm water, with depths ranging from 20 feet up to 50 – 60 feet on some of the deeper reefs.
