Join professional wildlife photographer and divemaster Jason Williams for an unforgettable adventure to study and photograph tiger sharks in the wild. We are teaming up with the outstanding boat and crew at Epic Diving for this small group (max 8 guests) expedition to one of the wildest places in the world. This is shark diving at its very best! Our expedition will spend five full days of diving outside the cage at Tiger Beach in the Bahamas, world famous for the large number of tiger sharks that gather there. The tiger shark diving encounters have made Tiger Beach one of the premier dive destinations in the world among professional photographers, videographers and shark lovers alike. With several species of shark frequenting this area, you will have opportunities to see, study and photograph tiger sharks, lemon Sharks, caribbean reef sharks, nurse sharks and maybe even hammerheads if we’re lucky! This is one of the best diving and underwater photography expeditions we have encountered! The tiger shark diving at Tiger Beach will blow your mind and change your perception and understanding of these awesome predators. Thanks to the foresight of the Bahamas, making all waters surrounding the nations islands a marine sanctuary, you will enjoy the benefits of a healthy marine ecosystem.

Note from Jason: The above itinerary is only an outline and is definitely flexible. We believe that the best adventures and the rarest experiences on earth can only be had by being open to changing plans and using our instincts to find those rare opportunities. We are not really a ‘tour’ company, we are an experience company. To us life is what you make of it. It can be viewed from inside a tour bus, where you are safely protected behind glass or experienced in the ocean getting up close and personal with tiger sharks. We prefer experience and hope you do too!
Cancellation Policy: We have a 60 day cancellation policy for this expedition. Cancellations made outside 60 days will be refunded less a 50% cancellation fee. For cancellations made within 60 days from departure we will retain 100% of the trip cost. We highly recommend purchasing trip insurance to protect you from incurring these costs in the event of an emergency. We require DAN or equivalent dive accident and evacuation insurance and strongly recommend travel and equipment insurance. There are no refunds for lost days of diving due to weather or equipment issues.
