Want to advance your shark knowledge and shark photography skills? This Bahamas Shark expedition is the closest you will ever get to Tiger Sharks, Great Hammerhead Sharks, Caribbean Reef Sharks, Lemon Sharks and maybe Bull Sharks. Join our guides Simon Lorenz and Tom Halleran to the two hotspots of shark diving - Tiger Beach and Bimini.
31/1/ to 7/2/25
The small island group of the coast of Florida is the undisputed capital for shark diving. This is not a coincidence as it has the highest shark densities in the world and boasts over 40 species of sharks.
We come here to see two of the biggest - the Tiger Shark and the Great Hammerhead. You will also see Nurse Sharks, Carribbean Reef Sharks, a variety of stingrays and hopefully Bull Sharks and Lemon Sharks.
While Tigers can be seen most of the year we are optimizing our tour to also see Great Hammerhead Sharks.
To improve our chances we will also visit Bimini Island, which no other 7 day tour includes.
This trip is designed to teach you more about sharks and then being able to see it up close. We will talk about shark biology, behaviour, reproduction, hunting and more. And then you can see it all up close and in detail.
We will also dive into detail on all shark species that we will encounter. You will learn so much about sharks in this week.
This is also photo workshop, so all our diving will be ideal for taking the best shark photos of your life. We will dive at up to four times a day and will be able to practice all forms of shark photography.
In between dives you will have time to decompress but there will also be presentations, talks and workshops to attend to improve your photography skills.
There will also be coaching about how to make the most our of your photos in Lightroom.
