This was a 7 day (5 days of diving) shark photography trip. Dolphin Dreams
left from West Palm Beach, and we spent five days on Tiger Beach, some 20
miles northeast of West End on Grand Bahama Island.

Superb trip: boat and crew are outstanding, and they really understand the
sharks. We made both day and night dives, and saw many tiger, lemon, reef,
and nurse sharks up close and personal. Two great hammerhead sightings, a
bit too far away to photograph.

Food and accommodations were excellent, and the crew's environmental
sensitivity and knowledge of diving cageless with large sharks was great.
Many outstanding photo opportunities. One bonus: there are two
"land" type showers, and we never ran out of water. Can't wait to
bring a group back next year.
