Great Hammerhead, Tiger, Silky, Caribbean Reef and nurse sharks – 12th to 19th March, 2018

This is an escorted, land-based Great Hammerhead and Tiger Shark trip in the Bahamas,  March 12 to 19, 2018, with some Silkies, Caribbean reef sharks, and nurse sharks thrown in for good measure.

Big Shark Safari

Dives:

2 days double tank diving with Great Hammerheads, 1 Silky shark dive, 1 Caribbean Reef shark dive on Runway Wall, 1 Caribbean Reef shark feed on the Ray of Hope wreck, 2 days double tank diving at Green Cay with tiger sharks from Nassau Stuart Cove’s dive centre, 2 days Great Hammerhead diving with Neal Watson’s dive centre.

The Tiger shark dives are at a new location that shark expert Stuart Cove has carefully prepared, without the multiple inconveniences of Tiger Beach near Grand Bahama. We will be the only people on the site, and with a bit more depth, not suffer from poor visibility of the wind picks up. Max group size is 12.
