We've set up an exclusive trip to Tiger Beach with Jim Abernethy on the M/V Shearwater for November 1-4, 2019! Sign up ASAP as these spots WILL NOT LAST!
Jim is a world-class wildlife photographer, film maker, author, and conservationist. He’s taken the unique approach of bringing divers up close and personal with large predatory sharks to raise awareness and love for iDive’s beloved mascot, Sharkey! Whether you're a photo geek or just REALLY INTO SHARKS (like we are) this trip will be epic!
This weekend expedition will take you to the heart of the world famous ‘Tiger Beach’. This spectacular location is unlike any other in the world and guarantees one of the most unique underwater experiences in a diver’s life! The shallow sand flat, located north of the West End of Grand Bahama Island, is the most reliable, consistent and, arguably, photographically pleasing spot to photograph these striped beauties on Earth.
Imagine yourself surrounded by lemon and tiger sharks as far as the eye can see; amidst a gorgeous backdrop of crystal blue Bahamian water, powder white sand, and a patchwork of thriving coral reef. All of this, and more, in less than 30 feet of water!
The typical itinerary for these 2 Day/3 Night expeditions is as follows:
Friday – Divers check-in at Jim Abernethy’s Scuba Adventures Office throughout the afternoon. Vessel boarding at 5:00PM, followed by welcome dinner as we begin sailing over to the Bahamas!
Saturday – After a brief stop at the Bahamian customs station at West End, we make the 1-hour trip to our first dive site at Tiger Beach! Most divers are able to fit in 3-5 dives on this first day, including a night dive.
Sunday – Another full day of diving! After dinner we begin our journey back to West Palm Beach, FL.
Monday – 8:00AM check-in at the US Customs Station. Depending on the speed at which we are serviced, the liveaboard vessel typically returns back to it’s home marina in Riviera Beach, FL, between 9:00AM-12:00PM
