Great Hammerhead Shark Diving Expedition

The best place in the world to dive with great hammerheads

Each February huge hammerheads aggregate off the coast of Bimini Island in the northern Bahamas. Generally shy, reclusive animals, the great hammers at Bimini have quickly become a new phenomenon in the shark diving world because of the numbers that show up and their willingness to closely approach divers. Join me on an adventure that you’ll never forget!

Big bull sharks regularly show up on our hammerhead dives

Mixed in with the great hammerhead sharks we also see quite a few bull sharks and nurse sharks. The bulls are bold visitors to the hammerhead shark encounters but they are rarely aggressive. This is a great chance to get close up images of a shark with a notorious reputation.

And … dive with reef sharks, blacknose sharks, and more at Triangle Rocks!

If endless hammerheads, bull sharks and nurse sharks is not enough of a draw, we will also try to squeeze in a shark feed or two at Triangle Rocks and Gun Cay. Triangle Rocks is a coral reef that is home to a healthy population of Caribbean Ref Sharks, Blacknose Sharks and even Caribbean sharpnose sharks. Never heard of these species? That’s just one more reason why Bimini is so special and why its important to dive with a local Bimini operator that knows where to find every type of shark!

Kick back in comfort 🙂

After a hard day of diving, relax at the Bimini Big Game Club – your home away from home!
