Tiger Shark Diving Rules
There are a few shark diving rules to follow while on these shark dives. This is not a comprehensive list, but to start off and as a matter of tiger shark diving respect don’t touch, ride or hug them, never turn your back to a tiger shark, a reef shark or a Bahamian lemon shark and if a shark is coming up behind a fellow diver let them know. Stay still and try not to stir up the sand, heavily overweight yourself and be steady on the sandy bottom. The shark of Tiger Beach in the Bahamas are fed pieces of fish that are usually white or silver in color so wear a dark wetsuit and gloves and keep your hands to yourself. Unless you really know what you are doing it’s a good idea to have something solid in your hand like a camera or PVC pipe to gently redirect a close, curious shark.
