Every year, television’s Discovery Channel devotes an entire week of television programming to one of our favorite subjects: sharks! Some of the programming is very educational and well done, while other shows perpetuate the myth that sharks are man-eating monsters.
We encourage you to tune in, but watch with a critical mind. Sharks have more to fear from us than we do from them.
When Jillian Morris isn’t leading IA’s Cage Diving Adventures with Tiger Sharks in the Bahamas, she travels the world with her husband Duncan as an underwater photographer. She and Duncan worked on “How Jaws Changed the World”, the show set to open Shark Week.
Tiger Beach, an area located off the West End of Grand Bahama Island, is known for its clear blue water, sandy bottom and population of big sharks. You can cage dive with tiger sharks, reef sharks, lemon sharks and even the occasional hammerhead. No dive certification is necessary. A hookah air system is used and cage divers are under the close supervision of a dive professional.
Incredible Adventures is now taking reservations dive adventures in April, June and August. For complete details, call 800-644-7382.
We had another great white shark sighting from the cage on Sunday. White shark season at the Farallones ends November 20th, so don’t wait too long to plan a white shark adventure in San Francisco. For info, call Sheri at 800-644-7382 or send her an email.
Our newest shark adventure takes place off the island of Roatan in the Honduras. Climb inside Idabel, a one-of-a-kind submersible, for a journey into the deep sea world of the six gill shark. The $5600 price is good for one or two people and includes hotel accommodations, airport transfers and guided adventure tours in Roatan. For more information, call 1-941-346-2603 or email Sheri Lewis at Incredible Adventures.

Dive Instructor (and Marine Biologist, and incredible underwater photographer) Matt called from the Bahamas yesterday to tell us it was another great day at Tiger Beach. He and IA’s shark divers spotted one tiger shark and several lemon sharks.
Our next Tiger Beach Adventure is slated for October 15th. Private charters are available on other dates. Contact Sheri for details.
There’s no swimming at Stinson Beach near San Francisco this week. Authorities spotted a great white shark swimming 200 to 300 years off the beach.
We love news reports of early shark sightings near San Francisco. It’s a sign it’ll be a great season of shark diving at the Farallon Islands.
Read the news story here.
