Just Passing Through

Hammers & Bulls ... Bimini, Bahamas
from November to April

Bull sharks mix in with great hammerheads.  All together they provide simply awesome action, especially for photographers.  From November each year, the hammerheads begin to arrive at Bimini.  They are en masse in February & March, then disappear by the end of April.

Just a little winter vacation?

The scientists honestly don't know.   There is little available information at the moment regarding where they come from and why - except that they definitely appreciate the gourmet taste of the resident sting rays!  The fantastic news for divers is that their presence provides an extraordinary shark diving experience.

Gentle giants and fantastic viz

Ranging in length up to 20 feet, the Great Hammerhead rivals the Tiger Shark in size while their prehistoric head shape makes them curiously alluring.  Divers will enjoy crystal clear water with great visibility (often 80 - 100 feet) and temps of around 25'C (78'F).  

The hammerheads are remarkably willing to come close to divers and photographers revel in the opportunity to get simply amazing shots. These enormous and graceful sharks will swim inches from your camera as they meander across the sandy sea floor.

Despite their reputation, the bull sharks are rarely aggressive (although you will certainly see assertive behavior during the encounters).  And, because you’ll be diving sites relative close to deep water, it is possible that other sharks, most commonly tiger & reef sharks, will join the party!

Photo ops galore

The delicate look of the white sandy bottom creates startling contrast to the intense color of the water and the power & size of the animals .... providing opportunities for photographers which were designed in Paradise. If you're a shark lover, these are trips you need to place firmly in your bucket list.

We work with the most reliable operators here.  Trips are mostly, but not exclusively, land-based ... with the diving being minutes away from your accommodation.
