Shane spent thousands of hours exploring the world under the waves in The Bahamas, trying to capture her beauty with his camera, as impossible as that is. The result is this book, Bahamas Underwater - a collection of compelling images and personal stories. Over 200 pages and eleven chapters on topics ranging from Sharks and Rays to Marine Mammals to Conch to Science and Conservation, we explore the animals and habitats that make The Bahamas so special.

Shane collaborated with Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation (BREEF) to make this book available in virtually every school in The Bahamas. Sales from this book go directly to BREEF to fund in-water experiences for Bahamian youth to see this beauty for themselves. He believes this type of learning will help lead to an even brighter future for The Bahamas.
