Guadalupe Island

Departing from Cruiseport Marina in Ensenada, Mexico, this is our newest adventure in Baja California. We teamed up with Great White Adventures, long known for their expertise in this area, to provide our guests with a safe and secure environment to meet the apex predator of the sea – the great white shark.

Located in the Pacific Ocean approximately 165 miles west of Ensenada, Mexico, Guadalupe Island is rapidly becoming the world’s best location for viewing, photography and video of great white sharks. The visibility is often more than 100’ and the water temperature averages between 65F-70F. This is cage diving at its most exciting and, because you will be using surface supplied air (hookah) instead of scuba tanks, this adventure is open to both divers and non-divers alike. These 5 day trips are shorter than our other diving excursions so they are perfect for a great mini-vacation.

Although we are set up to handle 22 passengers, as we do on all our other trips, we only take 16 passengers to Guadalupe. This "limited load" trip provides a quality experience for our clients by maximizing cage time and onboard comfort. We operate 2 four man cages using a proprietary swivel system which hooks to our swim platform making it very easy and safe to get in and out of our cages even in rough weather. Having only 16 passengers and two four man cages enables us to rotate 8 guests in and out every hour all day long. We have thought about adding more cages and clients but decided we did not want a "circus" feel when meeting great whites on their own turf.

SOLMAR V ALONG WITH GREAT WHITE ADVENTURES PIONEERED THE SUBMERSIBLE CAGE EXPERIENCE AT GUADALUPE.

The submersible cage allows us to descend a little further into the realm of the great white shark. Although the submersible cage lowers to only 30' below the surface of the water, it provides a completely different perspective to your great white shark diving experience. These spectacular dives are available to certified scuba divers only. A safety diver escorts one diver at a time on these 20 minute rides. We rotate all certified divers who wish to experience the submersible cage as many times as conditions will allow. The view offered by the submersible cage is a photographer’s dream come true. You are actually surrounded on all sides by these magnificent creatures in clear blue water. We have had an exceptional response from our guests regarding this experience. Both professional and amateur photographers rave about the different angles available to capture the mighty great white sharks of Guadalupe Island.
