Tiger Beach Bahamas

Tiger Beach is not only world renowned for its clear, calm water. For years, its Tiger shark diving encounters have made it one of the premier dive destinations in the world. Amateur and professional photographers, videographers and shark lovers alike all enjoy the dives. There are numerous species of shark frequenting the area. You have opportunities to see Tiger Sharks, Lemon Sharks, Caribbean Reef Sharks, Nurse Sharks, Great Hammerheads, Bull Sharks and more. However, for many years now, the Tiger Shark diving has been taking front stage at Tiger Beach. Visiting divers are helping to change the perception of these top predators. Thanks to the foresight of the Bahamas, making all waters surrounding the nations islands a marine sanctuary, we are able to enjoy the benefits of a healthy marine ecosystem.

Best Shark Diving in the Bahamas

The reefs near tiger beach have a vast array of marine life, hard corals and soft corals. Visibility can reach well over 100 feet and you mix in some of the local reef and lemon sharks, you have a dream dive for many nature enthusiasts.  The tiger sharks can grow to over 16 feet.  When they come in, you’ll find yourself ignoring all the other sharks in the area and focusing on only the large, striped sharks.  They seem to be more curious and cautious than you were expecting. Being completely surrounded by nature for the week, we know you will leave with more appreciation for the sharks, but also for the Bahamas as a whole. It is the best place for Tiger Shark Diving!
