Oceanic Whitetip Expedition
Call for Dates

It is truly a pelagic expedition, with reliable encounters in the open blue and plenty of opportunity to see other species. We take every opportunity to swim with the oceanics, both free diving and SCUBA. These are advanced dives, as we will be drifting in the blue with large predatory sharks, without the protection of a cage. We require an advanced diver certification, and free diving/snorkeling experience is recommended. Guests are able to spend hours in the water with the sharks on snorkel, as well as a one-tank dive daily. Even though we’ll typically be drifting over bottomless ocean, the sharks remain close to the surface.
The water around Cat Island offers some of the best conditions imaginable. Calm, crystal clear water with gentle current allows for countless photography opportunities.
Not far away from the hustle and bustle of Nassau, but far away from it all, set amidst an atmosphere of tranquillity and style. Enjoy your open-air breakfast on the beachfront, and explore the Bahamas the way they used to be. The resort is just a 20-minute ride to the boat, and transfers are included in your dive package.
This sixteen-room resort is spectacularly located on 8 miles of pink sand Atlantic Ocean beach. Coral heads right off the beach make bathing and snorkeling from the beach easy and convenient. The sixteen rooms are formed in a square around the garden and pool area. Most of the rooms have ocean view and are less than 150 feet away from the beach. All rooms have private bath, mosquito screens and small patio. The rooms are cooled by ocean breezes and ceiling fans or air conditioning providing sufficient cooling even in the summer months.
After diving, relax in a hammock on the beach and enjoy the breeze under swaying palm trees. Have your evening cocktail at the freshwater pool, and be prepared for a tasty surprise in the cozy dining room after the sunset. Forget about the outside world!
The bar – based on an honor system – allows guests to mix their own favorite cocktails and drinks. The terrace and bar are favorite meeting points for guests and friends.
