Best shark diving in the world

Bajo Alcyone – Cocos Island

Have you ever seen a hammerhead shark? Well, all divers who are looking to swim with this type of shark, go to Cocos Island. This Island is popular for that reason, it’s a very recognized destination around the world to dive with hammerhead sharks. 

You can enjoy this experience all over the Island, but where you will find more sharks, is in the Lower Alcyone part, an 82-foot seamount!

We recommend that you first dive to the top of this mount and find a safe area. From that point, you can enjoy breathtaking views!

When to go? To enjoy watching marine life, we recommend you go from June to November, and if you want the best water conditions, from December to May.

It’s of the utmost importance that you are an advanced-level diver. Enjoy!

Tiger Beach – Grand Bahama Island

This beach is located in the Bahamas, known as the best destination for diving with sharks in the world! You can find from reef sharks to whitetip sharks and hammerhead sharks.

But do you know where the best point is? At Tiger Beach. If you are a diving enthusiast, you surely know which island it is. And its name says it all, you can swim with tiger sharks!

Divers wait on the sandy bottom for sharks to appear and spin around. If you are lucky, you will also be able to see lemon sharks and nurse sharks.

And you’re in luck! If you are a beginner you can do this type of diving, although we recommend doing it in a group. Also, the best months to do it are from October to January.

Monad Shoal – Malapascua

In the Philippines, you can find many places to swim with reef sharks, zebra sharks, and whale sharks. Although this sounds spectacular, there is an area of the Philippines for diving with sharks that is essential!

It’s Monad Shoal, located specifically in Malapascua. It’s the best place in the world to swim with thresher sharks. You just have to stand 30 meters and wait for the thresher sharks to arrive.

We assure you that on this tropical island, you will have an unforgettable experience! If you are at an advanced level, don’t think twice, this wild tail shark is going to amaze you!

This place is a crater that is located near the island of Santa Cruz, and thanks to the great currents, there is where you can see more hammerhead sharks, large and smooth sharks.
