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.
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
