Sharks are a big attraction in the Bahamas, there are many different kinds and ample opportunities for a close-up. However you feel about baiting, it is commonplace in the Bahamas and means you can get up close to lots of different sharks. The lemon sharks here are very large due to feeding and they are very tame as well. Caribbean reef sharks and the more ferocious tiger sharks can be found in large numbers near Tiger Beach in the Bahamas, a common stop-off for diving cruises. Dolphins and turtles are also a favourite for divers in the Bahamas especially in shallow dive spots.
There are also some fantastic wrecks in the Bahamas as well, many of which are in very shallow water, which are great for long easy dives. The wrecks are normally full of fish life like wrasse and snappers but the Hesperus wreck also houses a few loggerhead turtles as well. The Hesperus is on a sand bank and only 15 ft. (4.5 m) deep. There are also caves and blue holes that can be dived in the Bahamas near to Abaco with stalagmite forests full of shrimps and lobsters.
