Spend time at the world famous Tiger Beach, possibly the best location in the world for unique and thrilling underwater encounters with tiger and lemon sharks.

The week long liveaboard trip includes time at Tiger Beach and plenty of exciting shark encounters. On non-shark diving days, there are plenty of dive sites off the west end including wrecks, reefs and walls as well as plenty of wild dolphins to hopefully interact with.

The boat departs from Old Bahama Bay Resort, an all-suite beachfront resort located on the west end of Grand Bahama, an island which offers you the chance to combine a world-class resort with the charm of historic fishing villages and undiscovered ecological treasures. With plenty of facilities and a yacht club on-site, the resort caters for everyone. It’s only 55 miles east of Palm Beach in Florida and it’s in this stretch of water that thrill seekers head to Tiger Bay for shark encounters.

This trip is operated exclusively by liveaboard on a mix of 7 and 10 night trips in season (Apr-Aug). Please contact the Dive team for further details of dates and prices. Price quoted is for a quad share cabin.
