Hammerheads & Tiger Beach on Bahamas Master, 17-27 February 2022

Hammerheads & Tiger Beach on Bahamas Master, 17-27 February 2022

The idyllic Bahamas are world famous for their amazing shark diving. Top on the list of the best dive sites in the Bahamas are Tiger Beach, named for its resident Tiger Shark population, and the Bimini Islands when in the months of January through March you can reliably encounter Great Hammerheads! Our 10 night liveaboard trip on Bahamas Master has been specifically timed to coincide with Great Hammerhead season and will take us to both Tiger Beach and the Bimini Islands! As well as close up encounters with Tiger Sharks and Great Hammerheads, the trip also promises encounters with other shark species, including Lemon Sharks, Nurse Sharks, Caribbean Reef Sharks and Bull Sharks!

Tiger Beach
Tiger Beach is located off the West End of Grand Bahama Island and is the best known point for Tiger Shark, Bull Shark, Caribbean Reef Shark and Lemon Shark encounters on a shallow, white sandy bottom. This is the ultimate site for close up big shark encounters! A Great Hammerhead Shark (nicknamed Patches!) also often makes an appearance in the months of January through March.

Bimini Islands
The westernmost island group of the Bahamas, these are truly ‘islands in the stream’ as they are situated southwest of Grand Bahama Island on the edge of an underwater cliff that drops hundreds of metres into the blue abyss. The Bimini Islands are the most famous spot for Great Hammerhead and Nurse Shark encounters. You will normally also find Bull Sharks at the Bimini Islands. The best time to encounter Great Hammerheads at Bimini is January through March.
