Swim with the sharks
For the diving experience of a lifetime, head to Tiger Beach in the Bahamas, one of the few places in the world where you can swim with a variety of shark species in their natural habitat
Located around 30km off the coast of the West End of Grand Bahama Island, Shark Beach was only discovered in the 1980s, since when it has achieved legendary status among the international diving community as one of the best sites in the world to swim with sharks and other marine creatures.
Getting so close to these magnificent predators in their natural environment is an unforgettable experience. It is generally safe as you long as you are trained and dive as part of a tour guide group.
As well as tiger sharks, a variety of other species frequent these waters, and depending on the time of year you visit on your private yacht charter, you can expect to see lemon sharks, hammerhead sharks and Caribbean reef sharks, as well as a wide variety of fish, and, if you're lucky, dolphins.
An easy day trip for those moored at Grand Bahama island, Tiger Beach is the ultimate underwater adventure for certified scuba divers.

The sea around Tiger Beach is relatively shallow and crystal clear, with soft, powdery white sand on the ocean floor, providing great visibility and making it the perfect environment to observe and photograph the exceptional marine life all around you.
A popular time to visit is during the tiger sharks' breeding season, between October and January, when you will encounter large numbers of these amazing creatures, while you are more likely to see dolphins in the summer months, and hammerheads between November and March.
