They are perhaps one of the most misunderstood and mis-presented creatures that could have easily become the epitome of elegance, power and pace. Everywhere we only hear and see the horror accounts of people who saw the ferocious face of the sharks, but they are not what they are portrayed as. There is an adorable side in their gestures that gets hidden behind the razor sharp teeth and death grip jaws.
And there is no other better place on earth than Bahamas to go up close and personal with these majestic marine ambassadors. You need no added reason to plan a vacation in Bahamas anyways. So, what about stealing some hours from your beach outings and evening cocktails and spend them on the never before shark feeding spree. And the capital Nassau is the best destination to go shark feeding!
The Nassau Shark Adventure is a 2-tank dive programme that offers the divers to have a very rare experience with these amazing and grand sea dwellers. In Nassau, you would locate several sites where you can go under water with the Caribbean Reef sharks. To do so, however, you have to fulfill some requirements only after which, you would be allowed to take a dip. For example, anyone willing to feed the sharks under water, he/ she has to be a certified diver (must bring certification card at time of check-in).
Time to go down mate! But, unlike the normal diving, here, you have to keep kneeling on the ocean floor. The professional shark feeder places a bait box on the bottom while the divers form a semi-circle in front of the former. The expert uses the bait box and a pole spear to control the release of food that influences the shark's behavior. See, how the sharks come up to the bait and you would wonder at their polite movements. All they are keen on is their food, not on the intruder, that's you!
The sharks will come near you- threateningly near in fact. But, keep in mind the instructions and safety measures and don't panic. Let them swim around you and you will be a part of something that you can cherish the whole life. Isn't it wonderfully interesting to share the same water with the mysterious sharks in their natural habitat?
