The main reason for my trip to visit Grand Bahamas was to dive with this majestic animal! They can grow up to 5 meters in length. They get their common name, Tiger Sharks for the 'stripes' on their body. Tiger Sharks are the ocean's apex predator and known to eat anything. Despite the bad reputation that sharks has as senseless killers and/or killing many humans, which is totally not true they can be gentle and 'playful' and enjoying interactions with divers. It was a privilege to encounter them up close and up to 10 Tiger Sharks in one of the dive.
Shallow reefs at Bahamas, specifically called Tiger Beach. Generally, they can be found in tropical and sub-tropical waters throughout the world. They are also known to be nomadic.
