Diving Highlights

**PLEASE NOTE** All dive sites are subject to weather conditions and those visited are at the absolute discretion of the captain and dive guides.

Tiger Beach
One of the best locations for tiger and lemon shark encounters located off the West End of Grand Bahama Islands. With a white sand bottom and shallow depth (6-7 meters) this is a favourite site for photographers and videographers as well. Sightings of great hammerheads and nurse sharks are common, with an occasional bull shark making an appearance.

Fish Tales
Close to Tiger Beach with similar shark sightings but a little deeper depths. There is an opportunity to see lemon sharks, Caribbean reef sharks and tiger sharks.

Just beyond West End, this is another great location to see great hammerheads, tiger sharks, nurse sharks, lemon sharks, and even bull sharks have been spotted.

Sugar Wreck
This 110-meter long, four-masted steel sailing vessel sank about 100 years ago while carrying molasses. As a shallow wreck in just 7 meters of water, there will be plenty of bottom time for exploration. The wreck is now residence to green moral eels, turtles, octopus, nurse sharks and large schools of snappers.
