Tiger Beach – Trip Full

A bucket list trip: cageless diving with sharks

Where we are diving

Limited to 10 spots! Join Trip Leader Pat Purkhiser for up close and personal diving with some of the most interesting sharks in the world at the famous “Tiger Beach” in the Bahamas! Tiger Beach is a spectacular location, unlike any other in the world, where you will have one of the most unique underwater experiences of your life. Imagine yourself surrounded by lemon and tiger sharks as far as the eye can see; amidst a gorgeous backdrop of crystal blue water and powder white sand, all in less than 20 feet of water. This unique shark trip is cage-less, and designed for shark enthusiasts and photographers with advanced diving experience. The emphasis is on getting quality in-water time and photo opportunities.

You’ll appreciate Pat’s extensive shark diving knowledge and experience. A marine biology educator and shark conservation advocate, Pat’s background uniquely qualifies him to lead this trip. And it doesn’t hurt that he has over 25 years of experience diving with sharks.
