About Bahamas

Below you can also read a brief description of the 2017 trip written by one of the travelers.

"At the end of March, we spent eight days on the Dolphin Dream boat to dive with sharks at Tiger beach, off Grand Bahama. We had a total of 26 dives, of which we had close contact with sharks on all. During almost all dives we had company with between three and eight tiger sharks, five bull sharks, the wonderful big hammer shark Patches as well as countless individuals of lemon sharks and Caribbean reef sharks.

The strange and amazing thing about this trip was that all the dives (except for the first two refreshment dives) were done on one dive site on Tiger Beach. As the maximum depth in the clear water at this place is only 11 meters, it was possible to get diving times of up to six hours per day and yet they longed to go down again in the morning the following day.

Dolphin Dream is a converted shrimp trawler that gives the feeling of being on an expedition rather than a liveaboard. The crew consists of the charismatic Captain Scott, a chef and three dive guides. As Dolphin Dream only takes 12 guests, it quickly becomes a pleasant atmosphere and cohesion on the boat. A bonus on the trip was Scuba Travel's ambassador Magnus Lundgren, who gave a number of much appreciated lectures on underwater photography. "
