Day Trips to Tiger Beach: Bahamas Shark Diving

bahamas tiger beach shark diving

We are often asked if we offer day trips to tiger beach. The answer is yes! In fact, all we offer are shark diving day trips. We do not operate a live aboard dive boat at all. In all three locations, we make day trips to various shark diving hotspots. On Grand Bahama island, we head out each morning for our Tiger Beach day trips. In Bimini, it’s a short boat ride between the dive site and the hotel/marina. On Cat Island, we transfer to the boat each morning before heading out for a day with the oceanic whitetip sharks.

When do you run Tiger Beach trips?

We are located on the West End of Grand Bahama Island for our day trips to tiger beach.  Peak season is between the fall and spring months. During that time frame, we enjoy some of the best shark diving this planet has to offer. In addition to our regulars, we also find the fan favorites like Emma and Hook!

What is the dive boat for Tiger Beach like?

A typical day trip to tiger beach involves an early start to grab a bite to eat before boarding the boat for the ride out to the shark grounds. MV Thresher is fully equipped for comfort and safety to enjoy the whole day out on the water. In addition to all the seating space on the dive deck and up on the flybridge, there’s also a fully enclosed cabin to get out of the elements on some of those not so inviting winter mornings. Both the flybridge and inside cabin have stereo systems with Bluetooth connectivity to enjoy your favorite playlist.

What are day trips to Tiger Beach like?

Once we get up to tiger beach, we’ll scan the area and pick our anchor spot. As the chum makes it’s way into the water, divers can get their gear setup finalized and prep cameras while we wait for the sharks to show up. Reef sharks are usually the first ones to the boat, with lemon sharks following closely behind. Once the tiger sharks show up, we’ll gear up and head into the water. Technically speaking, our dives are not difficult at all. Our average dive depth is between 20 – 30 feet (6 – 10 meters) so dive times are generally over 60 minutes. Divers also usually arranged in a line on the bottom and remain stationary throughout the dive. We’re heavily waited to make it easier to stay put on the bottom and hold your position in the variable surface surge and current that is well known at Tiger Beach.

After the last dive has ended, we’ll pull the chum and anchor and make our way back to the resort. Our host accommodations are fully appointed with all the comforts you could need. Take a shower, grab a bite to eat, enjoy the hot tub or pool, or jump online and post your favorite photos from the day diving with tiger sharks.

How many days should you dive Tiger Beach?

We recommend no less than three days planned to be at tiger beach. Unfortunately, the winter season is known for occasional squalls of heavy winds and high seas, preventing us from making it out for diving at tiger beach. It is located far offshore and completely unprotected from any significant winds. We offer standard packages with either 3 or 5 days of diving planned. We know it can be really disappointing to lose a day of diving and we strongly recommend travelers secure some form of travel insurance specific to diving, such as the kind offered by DAN or DiveAssure.

What can we expect to see at Tiger Beach?

Sharks, lots of sharks! We are fortunate to have had a 100% success rate finding the tiger sharks on our day trips to tiger beach. We also always see reef sharks and lemon sharks and occasionally nurse sharks. More recently, we’ve been encountering a lot more bull and great hammerhead sharks than usual. We’re hoping that carries forward during future tiger beach shark diving seasons. We also love spending some time at the reefs in the tiger beach area. They are really lush, beautiful, and loaded with sharks. The reefs are much deeper than the classic tiger beach spots, averaging around 50 feet or so.

How do I arrange a trip to Tiger Beach?

Having such a short season, we generally book up in advance, so it’s best to contact us early. Our calendar is set and boat reserved throughout the season so we don’t have space for your typical open bookings. Contact us for dates and availability.

    Regarding Tiger Beach trips: When is the best time of year to schedule such a trip relative to 1) less crowds, 2) best weather and 3) largest Shark quantities

    1. Thanks for your interest in diving with us! Unfortunately we will be heading over to Cat Island for the start of Oceanic Whitetips over there. Hope to dive with you in the future.

  7. Derek Schroff

    We will be coming to the Bahamas in July. Do you still do trips out to try and see sharks then even though it is not in season?

    1. Hi Derek. Thanks for your interest in diving with us! We do not run trips off season. We only schedule our excursions during the times with highest probability of amazing shark encounters. Hopefully we can dive together in the future!

  8. Justin Powell

    Can your departure/return times accommodate cruise ship passengers arriving at 8 and being back to the ship by 430?

    1. Hi Justin. Thanks for contacting us! Unfortunately we are about an hour away from the cruise ship terminal and on the sharks schedule, not our own, so can’t commit to being back in time for your departure. Hopefully you can join us another time in the future!

      1. Justin Powell

        Thanks! I’ll start looking for a cruise with an overnight option. Tiger Beach is on my list to do before leaving Florida, so I’ll be you seeing you one way or another 🙂
