Trip 07, Sept 02, 2017 Guadalupe Island, Mexico
Our 19 hours crossing time to Isla Guadalupe happened so smooth, upon arrival it seems sharks were already there waiting for us to get into the water, our guests so enthusiastic to see the first one, of course visibility helped out a lot, first rotation got in surface cages, every body else enjoying the spectacular view from sun deck, while others submersible cage rotation as well, every body at the same time having big time fun!! Water temp 72 ℉/22℃, the number of jumping was insane of these sharks, several times body out of the water while others completely mouth open out of water exposing those sharp white teeth, even thought at times vis decreased a lot just on the surface sharks were still there, counting up to 7 sharks along the day, 24ft/8m deep submersible cage was fun, just another perspective to see these white sharks and surrounded by 4 to 5 of the then in the same frame, we even had such a small female white shark about 6ft/1.8 m long with so much stamina trying repeatedly to get the bait launching its body out of water exposing as well those white teeth, jaw dropping to see the speed of one specific shark, fast as a bullet got the bait, of course lots of photo shooters standing on the upper sun deck didn’t even want blink eyes so don’t miss that great shot, spectacular panga rides to see those pups seals, rock formations of the island, elephant seals, Cuvier’s beaked whales at the distance and then back to great white cage diving, some of the sharks we had were Gunter, Zapata, Crazy Luis, Andy; not easy to leave such a place but! About 2 hours before we got back to Ensenada Port Mexico about 400 hundred Dolphins escorted us leading the way in, so many of them jumping high up in the air, what a great experience and memories, slowing down engines they did speed as well just resting around the boat! spouts every were!
