2015 Bahamas Tiger Beach Dive

Each year I charter the MVS Dolphin Dream for a week charter to Tiger Beach Bahamas in search of sharks and especially Tiger Sharks.

The crew is great and the shark action is always spectacular.  This year we had 4 -5 large tiger shark females on each dive and they didn’t seem shy of us at all as has happened in the past.  Of course the lemons were intimating and the caribbean reef sharks were picturesque as they slid through the water.

2014 Tiger Shark Dive Expedition

Our Tiger Shark Dive was packed with sharks. Not to be ignored were the aggressive actions of lemon sharks, the smooth gliding of caribbean reef sharks,  spontaneous appearances by nurse sharks, and the pleasant surprise of a great hammerhead.

For many this was a first encounter with sharks . The weather brought good conditions and many sharks and everyone had some great photo opportunities.  The non photographers in the group also had a wonderful time and some excitement.  Some of the highlights were the night dives with sharks and the first sighting of a tiger shark. But it was hard to beat the dive in which we had 5 large tiger sharks circling us. The only event that could have beat it was the dive with the great hammerhead.  It took a while to coax it in, but we were treated to circling and gliding across the sand and passes overhead.

I enjoyed meeting the new guests and welcoming back the repeat guests and friends.  I thank all of the guests and the boat crew for making this a wonderful success.
