Join A Hammerhead Shark Scuba Diving Adventure
Noted underwater adventure photographer Andrew Salmon has announced he has a few spots left for a tiger and great hammerhead shark photo trip 24-30 April 2010 to Tiger Beach and the outer reefs along the Little Bahama Banks.
An incredible opportunity for any scuba diver, the cost is only $2850 and includes diving for tiger, great hammerhead, lemon, and Caribbean reef sharks for 5 days. We will spend 7 nights aboard the boat with all food and beverages, tanks, air fills and weights supplied. Nitrox is $100 for the trip if you want it. The boat departs and returns to West Palm Beach, Florida which is pretty easy to get a flight in and out of and only a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport to the boat.
This trip is designed for underwater photographers and videographers interested in real close-up shark action. There are no cages and you will be in the water with several large predatory sharks baited in to close range of your camera. This is some of the most exciting, intense and rewarding diving you will ever do. You will come away with a whole new appreciation for sharks and hopefully lot’s of great images and video.
Tiger Beach is located about 25 miles North of Grand Bahama Island near the western side of the Little Bahama Banks. Thousands of divers have visited this wild place and gotten to witness these animals first hand.
