Damian Brown - Tiger Shark II

Damian Brown has won first place in the Scuba Tours Worldwide Underwater Photographic Competition with this photo of a tiger shark. His prize is a holiday on board either Sea Queen or Sea Spirit liveaboard in the Maldives.

Last year Brown traveled to the Bahamas with Scuba Tours Worldwide.  'On one dive we had around 30 Caribbean, 15 lemon, a nurse and 11 tiger sharks in view at once!' he said.  'I would be surprised if anywhere could live up to that for shark encounters - both in terms of numbers and the close proximity.'

As well as shark encounters, diving in the Bahamas is known for its spectacular walls and blue holes (of which Dean's Blue Hole is the world's deepest at 663 feet), ship and plane wrecks, unspoilt reefs and the chance to swim with wild dolphins. There are also sea turtles, conch, a plethora of reef fish, spiny lobster and, during late January/early February, some islands experience huge shoals of spawning groupers, the national fish of the Bahamas.

See more of Damian's images on the Scuba Tours Worldwide's website gallery and for more information on the Bahamas see its Bahamas webpage or give its Sales Team a call on 01284 748010.
