Grand Isle Resort & Spa and Beneath the Waves have partnered once again to bring their Shark Tagging Adventure back to Exuma, Bahamas. The shark tagging excursion debuted earlier this year; back by popular demand, guests can again have the opportunity to join leading marine biologist, Dr. Austin Gallagher in studying and shark tagging, which include tiger sharks, hammerhead sharks, nurse sharks and reef sharks, for a suggested charitable donation.
The excursion is set to take place June 5, 6 and 25 to 28, 2019. There will be two sessions each day from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Guests participating in the Shark Tagging Adventure will have the opportunity to:
- Partake in hands-on shark research with leading marine biologists (guests can be as hands-on as they would like or watch and learn)
- Observe and participate in the collection of scientific data from sharks which will help ongoing conservation projects; this includes taking measurements and tissue samples and tagging
- Learn the importance of the research
- Enjoy snacks and drinks, which will be included on board
Grand Isle Resort & Spa will also offer a special room package for resort guests participating in the excursion which includes 20 percent off the best available rate, breakfast the day of the excursion and a golf cart rental to travel back and forth from the marina. Additionally, all donations will directly fund the NGO Beneath the Waves’ research efforts.
