Jim Abernethy cruises off West Palm Beach, Florida, offer sharks lovers, videographers or photographers the opportunity to approach large predatory sharks in ideal conditions at the heart of the warm crystal clear waters of the Bahamas. In previous expeditions with him, we were able to dive with an impressive number of lemon, nurse and Caribbean reef sharks as well as up to 12 Tiger shark at a time…
In March 2014, we will take you to meet one of the most legendary of all sharks, the Great Hammerhead Shark, Sphyrna mokarran. During the winter months, he is approaching the shallow, crystal-clear waters of BIMINI Island.
Interactions with this great shark can be exceptional. Considered an endangered species, this shark is one of nine hammerhead sharks species. But its exceptional size (it can reach more than 6 meters) and its highly developed dorsal fin make it a very special Hammerhead Shark. Emphasis will be placed on the quality of meetings and photo and video opportunities.
With no less than 25 years of experience, our skipper Jim Abernethy can guarantee the best close encounters. He belongs to the family of these colorful shark addicts and you will be thrilled by its communicative enthusiasm, and its deep knowledge of the Bahamas shark waters.
