The year starts off in Bimini where guests dive together with the Great Hammerhead shark, a species that is generally hard to find and quite rare. Bimini has now become a world hotspot for this species, offering reliable close up encounters from January to March. During these trips, nurse and bull sharks, along with stingray will be also often seen by divers. The dives are shallow, generally between 20 - 40 feet deep.
In March, Thresher moves to Cat Island, among the family islands of the Bahamas. Over the past few years, this little isle has become world famous for it's unbelievable Oceanic Whitetip Shark diving. A pelagic species, the oceanic whitetips favor deep water and there's no better place on earth than Cat. The isle has a steep shelf with incredibly clear, deep water offshore. Divers can snorkel with the oceanics for close and safe interaction with the sharks. SCUBA diving is conducted as an effortless drift with an average depth to 20 - 30 feet. During these encounters in the bottemless Atantic, guests will frequently see dusky sharks and silky, as well as chance encounters with blue and white marlin. Closer to walls and the unbelievable reefs of the isle, reef, nurse and lemon sharks are regulars, with the occasional tiger and hammerhead sharks that often make an appearance.
