Destination:Bahamas

DPG and Prawno are thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the planet’s most majestic marine animals—the big shark species of the Bahamas. We’ll be going to the top locations in the region to meet the Caribbean’s key sharks—the beautiful tigers, the formidable bulls, and the spectacular great hammerheads.

The expedition begins at the world-famous Tiger Beach, on the West End of Grand Bahama Island, the stage for our heart-pounding tiger shark encounters. We then head to Bimini to come face to face with the great hammerheads. Our small group of underwater photographers will also encounter a number of other interesting species along the way, including nurse, reef and lemon sharks, stingrays, and dolphins.

TIGER BEACH, BAHAMAS – PROGRAM


Part 1: The Tigers of Tiger Beach


Shark enthusiasts, photographers and videographers know Tiger Beach as the epicenter of tiger shark diving, making this one of the world’s most renowned dive destinations. Sure, there are several other species of sharks to see here—lemon sharks, Caribbean reef sharks, and nurse sharks among them—but the real stars of the show are the awesome tigers. Growing to over 16 feet long, these impressive creatures are a mesmerizing sight that will make a fantastic addition to every photographer’s portfolio.

With the waters surrounding the Bahamanian islands protected as a marine sanctuary, the nearby reefs are thriving marine ecosystems that support excellent hard and soft coral growth and a huge array of marine life. On a good day, you could easily be diving with 30 or more lemon sharks in the shallows, and the fabulous visibility—well over 100 feet—means the photo and video opportunities are first rate.


Part 2: Bimini’s Great Hammerheads


Bimini offers one of the best opportunities in the world for great hammerhead shark diving. During the winter months from January to March, a healthy population of these elusive sharks congregate in the island’s waters. With numerous shark species frequenting this area, you’ll also be able to photograph and film Caribbean reef sharks, nurse sharks, and bull sharks.

Besides great hammerhead shark diving, there’s also a number of other excellent diving opportunities available, including several wrecks, and a great location to dive with stingrays.
