Join us on a thrilling dive trip to scuba dive with Tiger Sharks, Lemon Sharks, Reef Sharks, Great Hammerhead Sharks, and other species. World famous Tiger Beach Bahamas (an underwater beach!) is unlike any other dive site and is the best opportunity to photograph tiger sharks and other species as they circle around you. Shallow depths mean longer dives and our liveaboard means diving all day and into the night. Learn how to improve your photography with a professional photographer host.
Diving with sharks in the Bahamas is excellent for photography because of the clear water and sand bottom.
Scuba diving with sharks without a cage means you are as close as you can get to these beautiful animals with no obstructions in your photos.
Get up close to shark species with a captain who has been in the shark and dolphin encounter business for 25 years. For 5 days our crew uses their extensive knowledge of the waters of the Bahamas to find the best areas to bait the sharks. The crew maintains safe conditions while guests experience uncaged encounters with tiger, lemon, great hammerhead, bull, nurse, and reef sharks. Your hosts Takaji Ochi and Gregory Sweeney are experienced underwater photographers who want to share the thrill and magic of these threatened species with like minded divers and photographers.
This is a photographer’s dream: cageless scuba diving while different (and sometimes rare) species of sharks circle above you and pass right in front of you. The waters of the Bahamas are well known for its clear visibility and bright sand bottom. The 86’ vessel is both comfortable and built for safety and has plenty of room for camera equipment to be properly handled. Gregory Sweeney has traveled the world photographing underwater species such as whales, dolphins, seals, sharks, and manatees. His photography work has appeared in magazines, books, and art galleries.
Guests who desire to swim with sharks must have dive experience in a variety of situations ideally including some deep diving and diving in currents. Water temperature and the frequency of our dives will require a wetsuit of at least 5mm and a hood is required. All black or mostly uniform colored equipment is recommended: you want the sharks to concentrate on the chum, not your colored dive gear.
All divers must have a Diver's Medical Evacuation insurance policy in force while on this trip.
