Mv Shear Water

The 65 foot Shear Water was custom designed for Bahamas waters and shark trips. Comfortable & with a highly experienced crew, she's a good choice for diving this region.

A word from Dom …. “With a no-frills ambiance, Jim Abernathy’s Shear Water provides an excellent platform for serious photographers and divers to get up close to the big animal action at Tiger Beach, Bimini and Cat Island. Offering a full range of shark trips, Shear Water is a worthy competitor if you’re not looking for luxury accommodation. Dominick Macan
