September 4 – September 8, 2017 #TripReport (Guadalupe Island)

Hello you all!

This trip to Guadalupe Island was very special! During the crossing from Ensenada to Guadalupe Island, we watched a humpback whale in troubles carrying a big orange buoy  with a several entanglement with a rope all around its body. It was swimming with the tail because the pectorals fins were wrapped with the rope. Immediately we put the panga in the water and all the divemasters got ready to start the rescue. Another boat was on the route to Guadalupe, the Sea Escape and the same ,all their Divemasters and crew were ready to act.The 6 Divemasters of the 2 boats we worked all together, and after study the situation we enter the water to cut the ropes and after few minutes of hard work the job was done and the Whale was free!! Everyone at the 2 boats was happy!! We continued our way to Guadalupe to find the apex predator of the Oceans: the Great White Shark!! The first day we have a good interaction with them, and we can say that we saw 7 different Great Whites during the day, most of them males of 3 m / 9 ft an to 3.5 m / 10 ft. They were around the cages at the surface trying to catch the bait ,showing us all their jaws, splashing the water at the surface and showing the big dorsal fin out of the water and passing close to the submersible cage at the 20 ft / 6 m. The visibility was 60 Ft / 18 m and the water temperature 70 °f / 21 °C. The second was a little bit windy but the action with the sharks continue in the same way. Action all day!! The last day of diving was possible to watch 5 Great whites passing close to the cages at the surface and turning around the submersible cage. Garmin, a male of 3.5 m / 10 ft was very active at the surface, going against the bait and sometimes doing vertical attacks to breech at the surface, taking the bait by surprise. The rest of the day the wranglers were very busy because the action increase more and more with a big rotation of divers, coming in and out of the cages. Everyone was amazed!! Great whites everywhere ! The sharks never stop, they keep more pressure against the bait, biting the bait and pulling the ropes to escape to deeper waters.

 

Excellent trip with a succesful and happy rescue of a whale and a unique interaction with the King of all the seas. Waiting for more adventures to come! See you soon!

    To the best crew out there. I was on the trip from Sept 4-8 . Started out with saving the whale and just got better from there. I have been in love with Great White Sharks forever but to see them in person was truly more amazing than I could have even imagined. I cannot thank you all enough for not only making me feel part of the crew and sharing the most awesome fish in the sea with me. Also all the amazing food and drinks. The margaritas truly rock!!! Everyone on the boat does an amazing job and you can be assured from the beginning to the end you are going have an amazing experience. I will be back next year to see the sharks and the funniest crew at sea. Have a successful season.
