A Note from Dom

The reports from our November 2008 & 2009 Bahamas Tiger Sharks trips, with photographer Wolfgang Leander, were nothing short of incredible.

Clients actually wrote to say that the experience was life-changing.  To be in the water with these enormous & powerful creatures and to have no fear of them, to find nothing but peace & beauty in the "air" was astonishing . . . and to quote one client it was like "sacred meditation".

Not surprisingly, the feedback led us to engage two charters for 2009. I joined the fun myself and was so awed by the experience that I am waiting impatiently to return.   So . . . .  we've taken three charters in 2010, with tiger shark photographer, Wolfgang Leander, once again joining the trips.  And Old Dom will be tagging along for at least one of the charters!


The dates for 2010 are:     Nov 6-13  . . .  Nov 14-20 . . .  Nov 21-27 
(one 7 night trip & two 6-night trips).  

The rates for these trips:    7 night trip - $2795    6 night trips - $2395

 

The dates for 2011 are:     Oct 23-29  . . .  Oct 30-Nov 5 . . .  Nov 6-13  (two 6-night & one 7 night trip).  
The rates for these trips:    7 night trip -
$2845   6 night trips - $2445

Hope to see you in November in the Bahamas !  And, for more Extreme Diving ideas, check out the exciting range of trips that photographer Amos Nachoum offers through his Big Animals Epic Wildlife Expeditions.  Read more  >>>

Trip Details

We will stay at Tiger Beach, which is by far the best location to have constant shark action, day and night. There are always at least 15 - 20 beautiful 6 - 7,5 ft lemon sharks around - ALL the time - and tigers, of course. Last November a dive group had as a special bonus "Julia" with them - a stunningly elegant 8 ft Great Hammerhead girl who was there 4 days, 4 nights non-stop! Even though we cannot guarantee future shark encounters in the strict sense of the word, we can state this: so far, our success rate has been 100%.
 
No dolphins, no turtles, no trying out other spots where chances are you might not see any sharks. Tiger Beach is simply the best spot in the area,  According to many experienced shark divers, Tiger Beach ranks among the best shark dives WORLD-WIDE - some consider it simply the best.
 
For videos and still photographs Tiger Beach is just fantastic!! Clear water and  -  an underwater sand beach which makes for incredibly clean and graphic photographs.

Nov 6 - 13    (7 nights @ $2795) 4 spaces
