CAY SAL BANK SHARK DIVING
Want to go shark diving in the Bahamas without getting on a plane or going on a multiple day trip? Cay Sal Bank is the answer to your problems. Cay Sal Bank is a remote stretch of uninhabited Cays located across the Gulf Stream from the Florida Keys. Although this area is one of the closest locations in the Bahamian Islands to the US it is also one of the most remote. This shark dive site is truly off the beaten path and has some of the most untouched shark diving the Bahamas has to offer. The dive terrain at Cay Sal Bank is made of large areas of coral formations and sand patches that gradually slope down from the cays to a steep wall the drops over 1000' into the Gulf Stream. The entire shark diving area from the shallow waters of the cays through the shallow reefs and to the drop offs are loaded with sharks. What makes this location unique is the ability to do a shark dive and an open water shark dive in one day. This area is home to all of the large species of sharks found in the Caribbean. Unlike other shark diving locations in the Bahamas, this location is not a "developed" site. The most inviting aspect of Cay Sal Bank is that it's only 50 miles from Marathon in center of the Florida Keys making it a one day dive trip. Because of it's a 50 mile run each way to the dive site this trip should be reserved for those willing to make a long trek and spend a full 12 hours on the boat. Average trip time is from 6am - 6pm.
Cay Sal Bank is approximately 50 miles due east from Marathon, FL directly across the Gulf-stream. It takes our boat just around 3 hours to get to the banks each way. For this trip we usually leave the dock around 6am getting to the shark grounds around 9am. From there we shark until 3pm and get back to the dock in the US around 6pm. It's a full day on the water but worth the trip.
