Expedition full of close encounters with some of the largest sharks in the world. You do not need to be a professional shark diver to dive here with us. We do unlimited diving from the morning until the evening, which can start from the moment we arrive at Tiger Beach. There is always someone from our team underwater who will assist you in your interactions with the sharks and care for your safety. 

 

Tiger and Great Hammerhead sharks are, of course, the main attraction of Tiger beach, but sometimes you can see more than 5 species of sharks in one direction view. That’s what we call a perfect opportunity for incredible photos. Just to make sure we are all on the same page, on this expedition we do only no cage diving encounters so be ready to get up close with these creatures.

 

Our expeditions are prepared so that you can understand these majestic creatures. That’s why we will provide you with as much information as possible about their behavior, their body language, and, last but not least, their indispensability to our oceans.

 

We have been working on shark conservation for 7 years now and our goal is to raise awareness about their beauty and how we can coexist with them. Humans present the biggest threat to sharks, but a healthy ocean cannot exist without them and we cannot live without the oceans. Our conservation activities are funded by expeditions like this, and if you join us, you will help us take our vision one step further.

 

 „Even a bad dive on Tiger beach is one of the best dives of your life! There is nothing like a feeling when a 6-meter great hammerhead shark is passing just next to you or a tiger shark coming to check you out from up close. Learning more and more about the behavior of this species is making our encounters better every time we jump in the water.“
