Does anyone know where in the Bahamas and what beach the shark bite happened at last week?

All they said was she was a cruise ship passenger snorkeling at a reef in the Bahamas.

I'd like to know time of day, was there feeding going on, type of shark, etc.

From The Bahamas Press:

Athol Island, Bahamas – Bahamas Press is confirming a reported shark attack in the area of Athol Island just around noon today.

A guest to the island was snorkeling with a supervised group along the coastline of Athol Island, just east of Paradise Island, when the incident occurred.

The arm of the female guest was bitten off, and immediately she was rushed into surgery. She is alive and recovering from the attack.
