Bahamas – Tiger Beach
Location: Visit the remote areas around the West End of Grand Bahama.
These weeks are dedicated liveaboard weeks offering up to 5 dives per day.
The West End area is rarely visited by guests and is home to many creatures – both large (sharks and dolphins) and small (grouper, snapper, assorted other reef fish). At least one afternoon during the trip will be dedicated to a dive at the area know as “Tiger Beach” where we will try to attract sharks using a “scent triangle” filled with bait. Both Caribbean Reef sharks, Lemon Sharks and Tiger sharks are known to frequent the area.
Please note: All shark interactions are natural, passive and observational in style. The Dancer Fleet does not actively feed sharks nor chum the waters.
The water is clear and calm, making it perfect for diving calmly and always being focused and aware of what is going on around you, which is vitally important when scuba diving with these sharks. Don’t forget to take your underwater camera gear with you to take photos and videos of these sharks in their natural surroundings.
The really great thing about Tiger Beach is the fact that you will be able to have a tête-à-tête with a variety of other shark species as well when scuba diving Tiger beach in the Bahamas. These include Tiger sharks, Caribbean reef sharks, lemon sharks, hammerhead sharks, nurse sharks, and more.

The Carib Dancer
The Carib Dancer Liveaboard Bahamas is the newest addition to the Dancer Fleet Liveaboards and appeals to those discriminating scuba divers who prefer a smaller 14-passenger yacht that is perfectly suited for The Bahamas and the “Out Islands” diving itinerary.
All indoor areas are air-conditioned and each of the fine (5) deluxe guest cabins feature a double bed with single bunk above and en-suite facilities. Additionally, a uniquely designed quad cabin offers four single double-bunk style beds with en-suite facilities. The beautifully appointed salon has ample room for divers to view their photos and videos or to enjoy a movie on the entertainment system.
Meals prepared by their onboard chef consist of an international mix with a local flair. The Dancer Fleet’s drink selection includes fruit juices, soft drinks, plenty of iced water, tea and coffee and a limited selection of local beer and wine.
The Exumas consist of an array of more than 350 small islands and cays streaming down from just 35 miles south of new Providence to the anchor islands of Great and Little Exuma to the south. The Exumas are a 120-mile-long island chain-within-the-chain of the Out Islands. The Cays are the most exotic of the Out Islands, a collection of tiny jewels set in the aquamarine and sapphire of the most beautiful water you’ve ever imagined with an intriguing combination of walls and rich shallow reefs. Scuba divers travel to find three things: dramatic walls, lush coral reefs and exciting animal encounters- and the Bahamas Out Islands offer all this!
