Have you ever thought about going shark diving? Shark Diving can be one of the most thrilling experiences people have underwater and the Bahamas Shark Diving offers some of the greatest up close encounters with some of the larger shark species. If you want to dive with and/or photograph tiger sharks you go to Tiger Beach.

INCREDIBLE PHOTOGRAPHIC OPPORTUNITIES
TAKE YOUR TIME
One of the most unique underwater experiences in a diver’s life! Imagine yourself surrounded by lemon and tiger sharks as far as the eye can see; amidst a gorgeous backdrop of crystal blue Bahamian water and powder white sand. All of this, and more, in less than 20 feet of water. Tiger beach really gives you the time and opportunity to experiment. It is so shallow the that dives can be long, and the sharks will come right up to your dome port. Take your time and try to visualize what a shot will look like. Anticipate the angle of your subject and what is going on in the negative space around your subject. Try to isolate the subject(s) and get them swimming toward the lens at an angle. Get as close as possible to your subjects and work on getting upward angle. Keep track of where the sharks are at all times, especially the tigers.

Tiger sharks have an undeniable presence, combining raw power and pure beauty in such a way that those who encounter them cannot help but fall under their spell. Tiger Beach in the Bahamas is one of the best places in the world to get up-close and personal with them.
