Where are these underwater photos taken?

The photos have been taken all; Yucatan Mexico, Koh Tao (Thailand), Similan Islands (Thailand), Baja California (Mexico), Tiger Beach (Bahamas), Pom Pom island (Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia)…

Do you engage in 'baiting' or controversial practices to capture underwater photos?

In some parts of the world, like in Tiger Beach, Bahamas, the crew of the liveaboard will hang a tube full of fish heads next to the boat to attract the sharks. They will have a “bait” box from which they occassionally will give a piece to a shark.

Because of this the sharks at Tiger Beach have become accustomed to the presence of divers. And, because they have plenty of other things to eat, they do not regard us as a principal food source.

So… yes, it is absolutely not a completely natural setting. But it is a safe environment to have an up and close experience with these animals, and it will make you understand that they are not the “man-eaters” they are portrayed to be in the media.

This is one of the rare places I have been where bait is used though.
